The feminine hygiene market, which includes tampons, sanitary napkins, menstrual cups, and vaginal health products, makes up a significant share of the personal hygiene market worldwide. The global value of the feminine hygiene market is expected to rise from 35.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2016 to 40 billion dollars by 2020. Although the idea behind menstrual care products is simple, the sheer variety that can be found in a drugstore can be overwhelming. There are the traditional disposable sanitary napkins and tampons, as well as the more environmentally friendly menstrual cups, which are reusable and body safe. As the nation with the highest population, it is unsurprising that China is home to the largest market for feminine hygiene products worldwide.
In the United States, the second largest market for feminine hygiene products worldwide, sanitary napkins and tampons made up a 5.7 percent share of the beauty and personal care market in 2016. Sanitary napkins and liners account for the majority of dollar sales of feminine hygiene products, followed by tampons and vaginal treatments. Tampax Pearl was the best selling tampon brand in the United States in 2016, generating nearly 289 million dollars in sales. Douches, which have fallen out of favor with healthcare professionals and consumers alike in recent years, make up the smallest share of sales among feminine hygiene products.
