Tampons Market Segmented by Organic and Conventional Source in Scented, Unscented Nature


On an average, a woman uses around 11,000 tampons in her lifetime. It is important for women to understand the significance of hygiene products in their life. Talking about the tampon market space, demand for regular tampons across the world is higher as compared to other types.

Demand is also based on the applicator and non-applicator aspect, as demand for the non-applicator type is high as it is less expensive than applicator tampons. Non-applicator tampons are easily available in developed markets.

Tampons with applicators are costlier, as they include plastic, which also makes them harmful to the environment. In many countries, applicator tampons are banned due to the plastic involved in them, as governments are keen on promoting organic tampons instead.
