Women’s Health is a branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention and diagnosis of diseases that have an impact on a woman’s physical and emotional well-being. It includes a wide range of treatments, drugs, and surgical products for diseases related to women.
The Women’s Health Market was valued at ~$38 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over ~4.5% to cross $47 billion by 2026. This growth will be fueled by the rising prevalence of women-centric diseases (such as endometriosis, osteoporosis, breast cancer, menopause), the introduction of innovative new products for women’s health, government initiatives to curb population growth, and growing demand for contraceptives to avoid unwanted pregnancies.
Emerging Opportunities in Women’s Health Market
One of the main factors influencing the women’s health market is the increased incidence of infectious and chronic diseases among a significant portion of the female population. Recent advances in genomics, tissue engineering, artificial intelligence, and cell and gene therapy have synergized a new wave of healthcare innovations that may be used to develop products and treatments specific to the diseases that affect women.
For example, researchers are studying transcriptomics (the study of RNA molecules in a cell) for treating elusive conditions such as preeclampsia or preterm birth. Another area of research that can assist researchers in achieving the potential of personalized medicine is genomics. There has been extraordinary growth in terms of technology from predictive AI solutions to modeling unique DNA profiles. An environment that is favorable to research activities is anticipated to fuel more growth opportunities in this market.
“Women’s health is not a niche market; it includes much more than just maternal or reproductive care. Indeed, women’s healthcare presents enormous opportunities for value creation and for improving the lives and livelihoods of women, with positive effects that redound across society.”– Executive Vice President, Global Operations and Supply Chain, Women’s Health Company, United States
