DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun 19, 2020–
The “Global Female Technology (Femtech) Market: Analysis and Forecast, 2019-2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com‘s offering.
According to this report the global Femtech market generated a revenue of $820.6 million in 2019 and is estimated to grow over $3.04 billion by the end of 2030.
The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 12.65%, during the forecast period. There are multiple factors that drive the market such as increasing representation of women in the technological community, raising awareness of women’s health, growing prevalence of infectious diseases among females in low to middle-income countries, and a surge in funding activities, among others.
Despite having huge potential, the Femtech industry is still immensely underfunded accounting for only 1.4% aggregated capital that flows into healthcare. Also, a large number of healthcare venture capitalists are yet to invest in this sector. Indeed, the amount of investment received by the Femtech industry is on a rise but at a surprisingly slow pace considering the potential of the market.
However, the signs of future growth are also quite evident. Five years ago, the amount of funding received by this sector had barely reached about $100 million. The Femtech industry witnessed more than $500 million funding (till 2019). The number of women-centric startups have significantly multiplied in recent years. This surge is also primarily attributed to the launch of the fertility tracking app by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin in 2013. The app also witnessed high profile VC funding from agencies such as Andreessen Horowitz and Founders Fund.
Today, a large number of start-ups could be seen in the market offering fertility tracking apps, as well as those focused on egg freezing and fertility treatments, women-centric clinical care, and even subscription-based tampons. Some of the top-tier VCs have also entered this field. For example, Kleiner Perkins, has backed a fertility platform called Progyny with a funding of $49 million, while NEA has backed a sexual wellness start-up called Nuelle offering financial support of $23 million.
Currently, the Femtech industry comprises over 200 start-ups globally, and a significant number of such companies are being led by women. Some of the major areas of women’s health that are being catered to with the help of technology are menstruation care, sexual health, fertility, and pregnancy care. Within these areas, companies are either developing new solutions such as Flex Disc, Thinx absorbent period underwear, or the Glow fertility and ovulation tracker or focusing on technology-based platforms using subscription-based model to democratize existing products such as birth control products and period products.
