In a sales growth of a branded condom band, it has been found that the condom sales have risen over the last three months as coronavirus restrictions and social distancing measures ease worldwide.
The condom brand, Durex, saw double-digit growth "led by strong growth in China which benefited from the easing of restrictions on social distancing."
The consumer goods company also noted that "most other markets" have also shown revenue growth throughout the last three months. It's quite a difference compared to earlier in the pandemic when the item wasn't as in-demand due to social distancing measures.
Demand for the global brand is especially strong in China and parts of the US and Europe where coronavirus infection rates have declined. According to a survey company, male condom sales in the United States increased 23.4% to $37 million during the four weeks ending April 18 compared with the same stretch a year ago. Even before the pandemic, condom sales had been sluggish. Sales dropped 2.4% in 2017 and 3.4% in 2018 before ticking up 1.2% in 2019.
