Feminine hygiene products refer to personal care products which are used by women during vaginal discharge, menstruation, and other bodily functions related to genitalia. They play a crucial role in maintaining a woman’s reproductive health and supporting proper intimate hygiene practices so as to avoid any kind of infection. Growing awareness about personal hygiene among women, coupled with the inclination towards the utilization of convenient and handy sanitary products, is creating a huge demand for feminine hygiene products. Rising female literacy and awareness of menstrual health and hygiene, rising female disposable income, and women's empowerment across the country are expected to accelerate the growth of the feminine hygiene products market across Mexico. The increase in the number of working populations; the numerous advantages of feminine hygiene products to augment market growth; and the rise in the number of hotels, restaurants, schools, and other businesses have boosted the growth of the feminine hygiene products market across the country.
The tampons absorb the blood from the inside of the vagina. These are made of absorbent material and it is compressed into a small tube. They come in different sizes and have absorbencies for lighter and heavier blood flow. These also don’t have deodorant, because changing tampons regularly gets rid of odour. Another advantage of no need of odour can be that it can cause irritation in the vagina and also can be an allergic reaction. Some tampons come with applicator, this is a plastic or a cardboard tube, that guides it into the vagina. According to UNICEF in Mexico young girls and adolescents prefer to skip school during their menstrual period, this a quite a common problem in this country. This problem is a red light in terms of heath access and there is also a barrier for learning about feminine hygiene. UNICEF adds on that woman without an adequate menstrual hygiene can be infectious and this can also lead to reproductive health problems.
According to this research report published by Actual Market Research titled “Mexico Feminine Hygiene Market Research Report, 2027”, Mexico is supposed to grow with more than 3% CAGR by the forecasted period. In Mexico, the feminine hygiene market is driven by the increase in product penetration rate and new innovations in the products. Moreover, with the new innovations, the rise in disposable income and a greater number of women working outside their homes are gradually increasing the consumption of feminine hygiene products in Mexico.
Currently, the issue of the non-biodegradability of feminine hygiene products is a serious environmental concern. However, the development of eco-friendly products such as sanitary napkins made from natural fibre is a sustainable option to advance in this market. The naturally available absorbent fibers such as organic cotton, banana fiber, jute, and bamboo etc are widely available, biodegradable in nature, and have a low carbon footprint. The use of these fibers also reduces the manufacturing cost of sanitary napkins. The primary function of a sanitary napkin is to absorb menstrual fluid. Hence, the selection of a core material depends on the absorbency and retention properties of the fiber. Alternatives such as bamboo fiber, jute fiber, and banana fiber, along with a cellulose-based hydro-gel, can provide absorbency similar to that of the synthetic superabsorbent polymer (SAP). A bio-based plastic prepared from starch can also be used as a barrier sheet in place of polyethylene and polyurethane, which are non-biodegradable in nature.
According to the report, the market is segmented into five product types, including sanitary pads, tampons, panty liners, menstrual cups, internal cleansers, and disposable razors and blades. Among these types, the sanitary pad segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Increasing demand for sanitary products, such as ultra-size sanitary pads with high capacity to absorb and special side leakage protection, is also supporting the growth of the segment in the Mexico feminine hygiene products market. Further, the market is categorized into disposable and reusable types. Among these types, the disposable segment is projected to dominate the market by 2027. The disposable segment includes feminine hygiene products such as sanitary napkins, tampons, and panty liners. Increased awareness and the use of disposable feminine hygiene products such as sanitary pads, panty liners, and tampons compared to reusable feminine hygiene products are driving this segment.
Based on the sales channel, the market is segmented into supermarkets and hypermarkets, pharmacies, convenience stores, and online sales channels. Among these types, the pharmacies segment is projected to lead the market during the upcoming time frame. However, higher penetration of the internet is propelling market growth for online sales channels in the market.
