Increasing female geriatric population, introduction of various drugs related to women's health, and favorable government policies are some of the factors expected to drive growth during the forecast period.
Women are more prone to certain diseases, such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, anemia, menstruation-related disorders, depression, and obesity. Hence, increase in incidence of these conditions is likely to boost the market in the coming years. According to International Osteoporosis Foundation, global prevalence of osteoporosis among women was over 200.0 million in 1990, and this is anticipated to reach 680.0 million in 2050.
Government and various private organizations are working toward improving women's health across the world, and this is likely to drive growth in the coming years. Reimbursement coverage provided to women is also a key factor driving the market in developed countries. For instance, various coverage plans in the U.S. provide preventive services for women without charging any copayment. These include screening for anemia, hepatitis B, & breast cancer on a routine basis, folic acid supplements for women who are likely to be pregnant, and contraceptive methods, among others.
