I can't imagine there would be much a demand for them.
Yes, trans men will have periods unless they have a hysterectomy or hormone treatment but they may not want the shop assistant and other shoppers to know they are trans.
Men do buy sanitary products for their partners, so nobody would blink an eye if they picked up a standard pack rather a blue pack stocked next to men's razors and shaving foam
I think you have it the wrong way around... Transgender men. Start out as women, they may not have full reassignment surgery for some time ( in some cases full surgery isn't possible) and in those cases will still experience menstrual cycles. The whole marketing strategy for 'feminine hygiene product's. ' is based around the obvious feminine bit. So a trans man might prefer a more neutral or masculine packaged product.
Remember every month for those individuals is a cruel reminder of their body not being the only they feel they belong in.
In other words trans-people remain the physical sex they are born into until surgery, drugs etc. are completed. Until that point their bodies remain the sex they were born and this should be acknowleged.
It's very hard for genuine gender-dysmorphics and I have every sympathy, I really do, but it has to be like that to keep others safe until transition is complete.
I don't quite see why special tampons sould be marketed though - scratching head here.
