In recent years, concerns regarding feminine hygiene have increased significantly around the globe. Menstruation has been considered as a taboo in various underdeveloped and developed economies, which has led to negligence toward the importance of having proper menstrual hygiene. Multiple initiatives are being undertaken to increase awareness regarding adequate practice during menstruation; guidelines under the Menstrual Hygiene Practices have been released. Menstrual hygiene management (MHM) practices differ widely worldwide and generally depend on the individual’s personal preferences, socioeconomic status, local traditions and beliefs, and access to water and sanitation resources. As a part of spreading awareness, Global Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day) is celebrated annually on 28th May. Also, in 2018, ~310 organizations educated ~27.2 million girls across 134 countries. Hence, with a rise in the importance of appropriate measures for feminine hygiene, the demand for feminine hygiene products is anticipated to witness considerable growth during the forecast period.
