1.1 Definition and scope of the study

Contraception refers to all the methods used by men or women in order to make sexual intercourse infertile .

While the contraceptive pill remains the primary contraceptive method in France, there are many other means of contraception, of local or general action and of varying effectiveness and constraints :

  • Locally acting methods (avoids pregnancy at the time of intercourse): male or female condom, spermicide, diaphragm, cervical cap
  • Hormonal methods hormonally active substances of the estrogen or progestin type (pill, implant, injection, vaginal ring, patch, hormonal intrauterine device)
  • Surgical methods definitive methods by laparoscopic or hysteroscopic route in women and by scrotal route in men.
  • Natural Methods Methods that do not use external elements to regulate fertility (observation of the woman's menstrual cycle, Ogino method, calendar method, withdrawal method, etc.).
  • Male Methods Thermal male contraception method by  artificial cryptorchidism, the male pill
  • After a report emergency contraception (morning-after pill, two-day pill and copper intrauterine device).

The global contraceptive market was worth 22.49 billion in 2019 The number of employees is expected to increase by 23.3% in 5 years, compared to 2014. This turnover is expected to grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 5.5% between 2019 and 2027. This upward trend in sales is mainly due to demographic growth, rising standards of development and living standards, the generalisation of studies and the increasing place of women in the labour market, which is accompanied by a mutiplication of maternity deferrals

The french market of contraception is also progressing. This growth is mainly driven by the growing awareness of the French population to contraceptive methods and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), the player investments of the sector to develop innovative products and government initiatives supporting improved access to contraception and information on contraceptive solutions and Family Planning.

In France, the pill is still the first method used despite the "pill crisis" at the end of 2012. The intrauterine system (IUD or IUD) and the condom are used by respectively 25% and 16% french women.
