Red Star News reports that Karex Bhd, the world’s largest condom producer, is also crying foul as it has seen a 40 percent drop in condom sales over the past two years and has had to open a new production line and switch to producing gloves. Red Star Capital Bureau obtained a set of data from SkyEye: from 2020 to June 20 this year, more than 40,000 condom producers were written off, an average of 17,300 per year, much more than the number of write-offs in 2019 (14,987). Data obtained by Red Star Capital Bureau through Skywatch: 6,184 condom producers were written off in 2022 as of June 20.
According to the survey, it was found that during the epidemic, the pressure of life increased and people bought items in groups without condoms inside. Sales were not available, while companies kept producing them, leading to overproduction of condoms.
