The most prominent factor to propel its market demand is the vital role progesterone plays in the healthcare industry during pregnancy as maintaining its level in the body during that phase is obligatory. A steady supply of progesterone to the endometrium helps in nurturing the developing fetus throughout the pregnancy. Drop in the progesterone level may result in the onset of labor and even miscarriage. The global fertility rate has dropped to 2.5, roughly half of what was 50 years ago, creating a global forum with ample opportunities in the market.
