With Covid-19 infections rising globally, the apprehension regarding a shortage of essential life-saving devices and other essential medical supplies in order to prevent the spread of this pandemic and provide optimum care to the infected also widens. In addition, till a pharmacological treatment is developed, ventilators act as a vital treatment preference for the COVID-19 patients, who may require critical care. Moreover, there is an urgent need for a rapid acceleration in the manufacturing process for a wide range of test-kits (antibody tests, self-administered, and others). The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
For instance, in November 2018, Reckitt Benckiser’s Durex brand introduced a new label “Feels” in South Africa. This range was made available at a lower cost as compared to other products offered by the company. Feels is sold at USD 0.71 in a pack of three, whereas Durex Fetherlite is sold at USD 2.83.This was a strategic move by the company to gain a higher share of the South African market, as public health organizations offer condoms free of cost in the country.
Social media plays a significant role in creating awareness about these products. Moreover, a condom is not only perceived as an economical method of contraception, but is also in demand as a product to improve sexual health. Variations in texture, flavor, and thickness of products available in the market help couples enhance their sexual experience.
