Feminine Intimate Care Market Growth & Trends
The global feminine intimate care market size is anticipated to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 3.4% over the forecast period. Rising inclination of women towards female hygiene products owing to increasing risk of health issues in the intimate area leading to various skin diseases has fueled the market growth.
According to the findings, rise in the average age of early puberty has been observed. The average age of puberty among women has decreased to 10 to 11 years, which earlier was 13 years. Unhealthy food habits, obesity, and stress are the main reasons responsible for early puberty in girls.
Developing countries such as Afghanistan, Cambodia, India, and China lack proper hygienic conditions and sanitation facilities. The government is taking initiatives to increase awareness amongst women regarding hygiene products such as intimate wash in rural areas.
