Menstrual Hygiene Management Market Dynamics
- Rising awareness of menstrual health and hygiene
Literacy is a fundamental right that serves as a springboard for ending poverty and extending society's attitude. Much study and policy debate has centred on the relationship between literacy and health. According to UNESCO, people in the United States with low literacy skills are three times more likely to have a worse health consequence than those with a higher literacy rate. This is also true of women's literacy in terms of feminine health and cleanliness. As a result, the market for menstrual hygiene management is predicted to grow as people become more aware of menstruation health and hygiene.
- Rising literacy level among females
Global agencies and organisations such as UNICEF and UNESCO have been active in boosting the literacy levels of young ladies in underdeveloped and developing nations during the last decade, believing that increased female literacy will improve feminine health management. Female literacy is projected to have a good impact on total feminine health management, and is thus closely related to the usage of feminine hygiene products. As a result, rising female literacy is expected to drive the menstrual hygiene management market.
- Emerging eco-friendly feminine hygiene products
Feminine hygiene products are not biodegradable, which is currently a big environmental problem. To compete in this market, it is possible to create environmentally friendly products like sanitary napkins made of natural fibres. Natural absorbent fibres with a low carbon footprint and wide availability include organic cotton, banana fibre, jute, and bamboo etic. Utilizing these fibres also reduces the price of manufacturing sanitary napkins.
Social stigma associated with menstruation and feminine hygiene products
For many women, the conventional perception and stigma connected with menstruation is a severe disadvantage. According to the Essity Health and Hygiene Report 2019, one in every four women in the world is of menstruation age. Women who menstruate require not just a private space to wash and manage their periods, but also feminine hygiene supplies and a proper disposal location. Menstruation is a hindrance to community engagement, education, and working life in rural places because these needs are frequently disregarded.
- Impact of feminine hygiene products on the environment
Currently, one of the most hotly debated topics is the environmental impact of sanitary napkins. A plastic disposable sanitary napkin takes 500-800 years to degrade entirely.

COVID-19 Impact on Menstrual Hygiene Management Market
People living in poverty experienced challenges acquiring menstrual hygiene materials and related health treatments during the pandemic COVID-19 because of the lockdown, increased costs, and economic insecurity. During the first phase of the lockdown, sanitary napkins were not listed on the list of critical commodities, causing serious production and supply disruptions, resulting in a shortage at pharmacies, grocery stores, and e-commerce websites. However, on March 29, 2020, Ajay Bhalla, India's home secretary, released an amendment to all state chief secretaries clarifying that sanitary napkins would be included in the list of basic products. Due to the fact that these products were classified as essential items, their production and sales were normalised, stabilising the market examined from 2022 to 2029.
