◆英語タイトル：Pregnancy Products Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)

However, high prices and side effects associated with the products are expected to be the key restraints for the growth of the pregnancy products market.
Key Market Trends

Stretch marks are tiny tears and scars in the supporting layers of tissue under the skin. Stretch marks are quite common during and after the pregnancy and occur in 90% of pregnant women. The growing awareness regarding the stretch mark treatment products and high adoption of the same is anticipated to fuel the market growth.
The market for stretch marks minimizer is anticipated to experience a huge growth during the forecast period, owing to the rise in the number of pregnancies in developed as well as developing countries. As per the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2018, there are around 44% of unplanned pregnancy cases in Europe and 38% in Asia, which may lead to the high growth of the stretch marks minimizer segment, due to the rising number of pregnancy cases. Because the stretch marks are associated with gestational change that affects between 50% to 90% of women, depending on the race and age of the population. Many women develop stretch marks during their first pregnancy.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, women are one of the most vulnerable groups, not receiving necessary care and experiencing additional negative impacts. The disease impacted essential manufacturers, which are supplying most of the market volume, due to supply chain issues. This is expected to decrease production rates; however, this can also drive up the prices of products in the short-term. Furthermore, the domestic manufacturers are likely to be able to fill the supply gap leading to a relatively lower impact on the market as a whole.
The increasing number of approvals by the companies also helps in increasing the overall market. For instance, in January 2018, New York-based pregnancy brand Hatch also launched a belly mask that provides hydration and helps minimize stretch marks.
Similarly, in November 2019, Hope Smith, a US model had launched her own skincare brand MUTHA, with two products that help pregnant women treat their stretch marks. Such product launches will propel the segmental growth over the forecast period.
United States is Expected to Retain Largest Share of the Market Over the Forecast Period

For the 25 to 44 age group, the birth rate also declined in 2017 after a steady increase from 2010 to 2016. Similarly, as per the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2018, there were 3,791,712 births in the United States.
North America is anticipated to grow tremendously, during the forecast period, owing to factors, such as rise in disposable incomes in economies, such as Mexico and Canada, well-established distribution channels, and increasing awareness regarding pregnancy products through strong marketing activities by key players.
