Intrauterine devices (IUDs) refer to small T-shaped plastic or copper birth control devices which are inserted into the uterus. These devices prevent pregnancy by stopping sperm from reaching and fertilizing the eggs. The size of IUDs is similar to that of a match stick and their arms are folded flat so that they fit properly in the uterus. These devices are rapidly gaining popularity across the globe as they are effective, safe, long-acting and eliminate the need for other contraceptives. However, there are some adverse effects attached to the use of IUDs which include spotting, uterus perforation, irregular menstrual pattern and pelvic inflammatory diseases. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Intrauterine Devices Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024", the global intrauterine devices market reached a value of US$ 3.83 Billion in 2018.
Over the years, it has been observed that more than a half of the pregnancies are mistimed, unwanted and unintended. On account of this, several governments and non-profit organizations are promoting the use of IUDs in confluence with educating the people about birth control measures and family planning. Moreover, various awareness programs are expected to increase the sales of IUDs in the upcoming years. Additionally, the act of repealing Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the United States has encouraged a large section of women to choose for long-acting reversible contraception (LARC), such as IUDs, due to the lack of access to abortion and rising copayment. This is further supported by technological innovations, such as reusable and postpartum IUDs, which are anticipated to stimulate the market growth. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 4.74 Billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 3.6% during 2019-2024.
