The global femtech market size was USD 6.69 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 7.75 billion in 2024 to USD 29.62 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 18.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Femtech refers to female technology products, software, and services that enable the use of digital health to manage women’s health issues. Ida Tin, the founder of women menstruation tracking app, Clue, in 2016, first coined the word.


The primary focus of femtech is to develop products, software, and tech-enabled solutions to cater to the unmet rising need for women’s health. The products and solutions are aimed to manage health disorders that specifically affect women’s health.


The rising prevalence of women’s health disorders including reproductive health, menopausal health, general health, and others among the general population globally and the awareness about these disorders through various initiatives are some of the major factors that are anticipated to drive the femtech market growth during the forecast period.


Also, the rising funding and investment coupled with an increasing number of startups with novel femtech solutions to cater to women’s health demands are other contributing factors for the market growth during the forecast period. However, limited accessibility of the internet and tech-driven products in emerging countries and privacy data concerns among the population are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.


The overall impact of COVID-19 on the global market was positive owing to the increased adoption of digital applications and products during the period citing the social distancing norms and travel restrictions. This was further augmented by the improving reimbursement policies in developed countries and rising acceptance of the results by healthcare providers.

Femtech Market Growth Factors


Rising R&D Activities & Funding by Investors and Organizations to Fuel the Service Demand


increasing technological advancements among the players result in the rising adoption of technology-enabled women’s health products and solutions among the female population.


The rising awareness regarding these products in developed countries is another primary reason for the increasing adoption of the products in the market. The market players are constantly focusing on research & development activities to develop innovative digital products and platforms. 


All these factors, along with rising support from government authorities, and other market players are leading to increasing R&D funding for the development of technology enabled products, including wearable devices, mobile applications, and others.



  • In July 2023, Herself Health, a healthcare company providing primary care to women aged 65 years and above, announced that it raised a USD 26.0 million Series A funding. The company aims to expand its brand presence in the U.S.


The continuous efforts of the start-ups to gain approvals for their products and to receive funding from various investors is one of the crucial reasons that is expected to spur market growth.

RESTRAINING FACTORS


Limited Access to High-tech Products and Services in Emerging Markets to Limit Market Growth


The adoption of digital products, mobile applications, and other technology-enabled solutions in developed countries has risen. However, there is still a massive gap in developing countries’ adoption of these products. The limited access to the internet and tech-enabled devices in China, India, African countries, and others is one of the major reasons to limit adoption in emerging markets.


The high cost of high-tech products, devices, and software, limited availability, and lack of awareness among the general population are some of the other factors that are anticipated to hinder the adoption of these products in these regions.


The cultural and societal differences in the developed and developing countries regarding the concept of menstruation, fertility, and other women’s health is another major factor that is anticipated to hamper the adoption of these products in the countries.


Also, the lower investment in women’s health, and digital health compared to other healthcare sectors is another crucial factor anticipated to limit the market growth.



  • According to a 2023 article published by PitchBook, women make up around 50% of the global population but the healthcare R&D targeted toward women’s health specifically is just around 4%, which demonstrates a huge gap between the demand and supply of products and services targeting women’s health.


All these factors mentioned above and limited penetration of awareness programs regarding women’s health issues in developing countries are expected to hamper the global market growth in the future.
