Global Menstrual Cup Market to grow at a CAGR of 4.02% during the period 2016-2020
A menstrual cup is a form of menstrual protection that forms a seal to collect menstrual fluids. Unlike a tampon, which absorbs the fluids, the menstrual cup simply collects while maintaining the natural moisture. Menstrual cups reduce the risk of TSS and hold more menstrual fluids than tampons. They can be used for approximately 10 years. Currently, there are two types of cups available in the market: A bell-shaped cup made of rubber (latex), thermoplastic elastomer or silicone; and polyethylene.
Menstrual cups are segmented into two categories: disposable and reusable menstrual cups. Disposable menstrual cups, as the name indicates, can be used only once while reusable menstrual cups are available in varied sizes, shapes, materials, patterns, and absorbencies. They can be reused for many years.
