The concern regarding women's health is pivotal for the overall well-being of the society. Yet, it is an issue that has always been neglected due to several socio-cultural factors prevailing in the society. The focus is now on providing better education and accessibility to services in different countries across the globe. The overall health market is dependent on factors, such as percentage of young and older women, demographic and social factors and the public outlook towards contraception and family planning. The life expectancy for females was estimated to be 73.8 years in 2015. As of April 2017, women accounted for 49.6% of the total world population. The world population is aging faster and women accounted for 54% of the population belonging to the age group of 60 years or over, in 2015. Though it has been observed that women live longer than men, a longer life does not indicate a healthy life. Women undergo a lot of hormonal, emotional, and physiological changes during their lifetime.
The rising geriatric population among women leading to a higher incidence rate of menopause and related diseases is the major factor driving the market. The cases of infertility are also increasing with women coping with the rising stress from jobs and consequential delay in pregnancy. Other factors affecting women's health include stress and changing lifestyle.

The increasing population of elderly women is the main factor driving the growth of this market. Apart from this, the rising awareness about the long-neglected topic of women's health is another factor.
The market has not witnessed any breakthrough technologies or emerging treatments in the last decade, the lack of innovation being the main restraint for the market. Thus, the market presents the opportunity for innovation through investment in the pipeline of drugs. The rising emphasis on the wellbeing of women, increased awareness about contraceptives and pharmaceuticals and use of natural hormonal preparations are other factors which will guide the growth of the market.
According to the analyst at BIS Research, "The women health remains to be a neglected topic in the developed as well as the developing nations, along with the prevalent discrimination on the basis of gender. In the developing countries, especially, women lack basic education, health facilities, and face sex-based disparities.

The hormones in the female body play an important part in these transformations. "
