Menopause Statistics For The UK & Worldwide In 2021/22

Despite being something every woman goes through, a woman’s relationship with menopause is complicated. You’d think with all our technological innovations, several industrial revolutions and a world drowning in data, we’d have gotten on top of it by now.

Speaking of data, let’s look at the worldwide numbers and the UK around “the Menopause” with a capital M. All the data seems to point to the fact that we still haven’t got to the bottom of this tricky hormone-fuelled life event.

Key Statistics

50% of women in Great Britain aged 45-65 years go through menopause without consulting a medical professional
73% of women in the US say they don’t treat their menopausal symptoms
50% of women had confirmed that menopause impacted negatively on their home life
51% of Britain’s 67 million population are women
69.5% of women said they needed health information on breast cancer
50% of women said menopause has impacted negatively on their sex life
90% of women say their workplaces offer NO help for menopausal women workers
Of the firms that do offer support: 5% offer free advice, 3% have policies in place, 3% of line managers are given relevant training
73% of women reported having hot flushes at work
63% said they regularly felt tired or drowsy at work
29% have lost self-confidence because of memory difficulties
Menopause market is estimated to be worth $ 14.7 billion in 2020, and is expected to grow each year by 5.7%
A survey conducted by IPSOS Mori for the British Menopause Society earlier revealed that 1 in 2 women in Great Britain, aged 45-65 years, go through menopause without consulting a medical professional. With a population of some 67 million at the time (51% of which are women), that’s a significant number.

The same study also found that 50% of women had confirmed that menopause impacted negatively on their home life. In addition, 50% of women said menopause has impacted negatively on their sex life.

A similar scenario occurs in the US, with 73% of women saying they did not treat their menopausal symptoms.

These findings reveal that there’s a huge need for information, education, and a support network to help women cope with menopause as it impacts every aspect of life ̶ both at home and work.

Reliable Information Needed

A study aimed at determining women’s health information needs was recently undertaken in the UK. A total of 301 women aged 48–55 years took part with the most frequently sought information being related to breast cancer at 69.5%.

Next up were:
Hot flushes (66.5%) Cervical cancer (64.5%) Non-hormonal therapies for menopausal symptoms (64%) Laboratory tests (63%) Joint and muscle pain (62.5%)

The main sources of information were audio-visual media (57%), obstetricians (55%), friends (52%), family ( 52%) and the internet ( 51%).

The two main challenges were not knowing how to correctly access information (38%) and not being aware of reliable sources of information (36%).

All the above findings point to a dearth of trustworthy health information, or conversely an overload of information. The problem may well be that more and more people need to learn how to critically evaluate information.

Menopause In The Workplace

It would appear that almost everywhere, women going through menopause struggle with some symptoms that negatively impact their work performance. Plus, a staggering 90% of women say their workplaces offer no help for menopausal women workers.

In the workplaces that do help: 5% offer free advice 3% have policies in place 3% of line managers are given relevant training.

The same study found that almost three quarters or 73% of women reported having hot flushes, while 63% said they regularly felt tired or drowsy.

48% of women said they suffered from low mood, 47% struggled to concentrate and 43% had trouble with their memory.

As a result of this, 34% of women said that they had developed depression and anxiety, while 29% had significantly lost self-confidence.

With an estimated 1 billion women worldwide experiencing menopause by 2025, there may be a huge opportunity for what’s termed “femtech”.

So just how big is the menopause market?

Menopause In The Market

Across the Atlantic in the US, some research organisations have estimated the worth of the menopause market as US$ 14.7 billion in 2020. The global menopause market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.7% from 2021 to 2028 to reach US$ 22.7 billion by 2028.

Initially, femtech focused on postpartum care but indications are that it will move into all areas of women’s health. Let’s hope menopause gets the femtech makeover, it certainly is highly eligible.

What is femtech and why is it important?

Femtech is defined as technology that focuses on women’s health and significantly improves her life.

Femtech’s worth is expected to reach US$ 60 billion by 2027.

The industry is expected to grow steadily in the next five years as women speak out more openly about their health needs. Femtech’s worth is expected to reach US$ 60 billion by 2027.

Back in Britain, menopausal women and their pounds sterling are of growing interest to marketers and campaign managers.

According to an editorial outlining the corporate British brands developing policies to support employees going through menopause. These policies also aim to educate their entire workforce on issues surrounding menopause.

UK Leads The Way

The good news is that Britain appears to be ahead of the pack in developing policies and establishing a menopausal-friendly corporate culture.

Just last month, the UK established the UK Menopause Taskforce to coordinate and work together on support for women across all nations, held their first meeting.

Making Gina available without prescription

One of their first tasks is to implement a consultation into the reclassification of a low-dose hormone replacement therapy (HRT) product called Gina, which, if the reclassification is successful, will be available without a prescription.

This is the first time HRT has been considered for sale over the counter, marking important progress in ensuring women can more easily access menopause treatment.

Millions of women go through menopause every year, with the majority of them experience severe impact on everyday life.

The task force comes ahead of the publication of the first government-led Women’s Health Strategy for England to tackle the gender health gap. Millions of women go through menopause every year, with the majority experiencing symptoms that can be severe and have a negative impact on everyday life.

The task force will tackle issues surrounding menopause, including increasing access to treatment and ending the taboos and stigmas that still surround conversations about menopause, including in the workplace.

Every single one of us has a mother, and if we’re lucky a grandmother, we have women friends, cousins, aunts and women besties. We can all help by talking about our own menopause journey or struggle ̶ not only to the women in our life but to the men in our lives, and our colleagues too.

Let’s have the M conversation.
