Condoms play a crucial role in the control of sexually transmitted infections. Further, of the various methods of contraception presently available, condoms effectively offer protection against unwanted pregnancies. Governments in developing countries are encouraging use of condoms as a means to curtail sexually transmitted diseases and to limit population growth. Public health campaigns promoting greater awareness, commercial advertising, expanded distribution channels, and use of condoms by unconventional users such as gays have also resulted in an unprecedented increase in sales. Further, a shift in product positioning is taking place from health to fun coupled with introduction of innovative products such as pleasure-oriented/enhanced sensation condoms.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Condoms: World Market Review" by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
