Menstrual cups are feminine hygiene products that are inserted into the vagina during menstruation to collect and hold menstrual fluid. Menstrual cups offer several advantages over conventional pads and tampons such as being reusable for up to 10 years which reduces landfill waste, are more cost effective in the long run and do not absorb natural lubrication which helps maintain vaginal health. They are made of medical grade silicone, latex or rubber and come in two main shapes – round/bell and stem/diamond. The round/bell shape is ideal for those new to using menstrual cups while the stem/diamond shape provides an easy removal grip.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends driving the Menstrual Cup Market is growing awareness about environmental sustainability and women’s health benefits of using menstrual cups as an alternative to single-use pads and tampons.

This is attracting more women to switch from traditional pads/tampons to cups. Increased marketing and promotion through online platforms is also positively impacting market growth.
