Increasing awareness about contraceptive methods among the population is the primary factor for the market's growth.

In India, most people use IUDs (Intrauterine devices) contraceptive methods to prevent pregnancy. With the increasing success rate of these devices for contraceptive plans, married women are showing interest in adopting contraceptive methods to avoid unexpected pregnancies.

The increasing development of various contraceptive methods is another factor driving the market growth forward. In addition, increasing manufacturing of over-the-counter drugs by large pharmaceutical companies also helps with market growth. Increasing investment and research on the development of various types of products, drugs, and devices and increasing government support for the manufacturing of drugs is the other reason which helps the growth of the market. Furthermore, increasing clinical trials for decreasing the side effects of the pills and the devices used for the contraceptive and increasing clinical trials on new contraceptive methods such as using gels also demand the market during the forecast period. Additionally, increasing development of the application regarding the use of contraceptive pills by the developer also helps the market growth.

Increasing health risks after using the contraceptive method among many women is the primary factor restraining the market growth. In addition, the availability of alternative methods to prevent pregnancy and the lack of acceptance of these contraceptive methods among a few populations and areas also hampers the market growth in this region. Furthermore, the other factors that impede market growth are the lack of awareness about contraceptive methods, the long time for approval of the products and drugs, and the lack of skilled healthcare professionals in contraceptive surgeries.
