Women aging from 16 to 70 years old are indulging in the pleasure of adult toys. The stigma of using these products to replace a partner has long been broken by couples who enjoy these toys from time to time, which is expected to drive the market.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to create an economic downturn in all industries as the majority of countries are in lockdown. However, the initial impact of country-wide lockdown has exhibited a boost in sales of sex toys. Several countries such as Italy, the U.S., Australia, the U.K., Canada, and France reported high demand for sex toys, from January to March 2020. These countries have also experienced increased sales, from the anticipated yearly forecast. People are advised to practice social distancing and self-isolation for self-care, which has led to an increase in the sales of sex toys such as vibrators and massagers. LELO launched various ‘Stay home and Save’ deals applicable for the entire month of May 2020, wherein the company was offering up to 15.0% discounts on its products.
Increased spending capacities and improved standard of living in developing economies are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Novelty adult products are gaining a mainstream position in the sexual wellness industry with the growing popularity amongst all age groups. Acceptance of the LGBTQ community and growing interest among women towards experimenting with sexual wellness products without hesitation is promoting the adoption of such products and hence, driving the market. Liberalization, penetration of social media, and the influence of pop culture have resulted in increasing awareness about the importance of sexual health.
The female segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 59.10% in 2020. Surpassing the taboo and social stigma, a wide range of products in the market are easily available for women. Products such as vibrators, dildos, and anal beads are displayed directly in the wellness department. Manufacturers have generally targeted women for manufacturing toys around the female anatomy.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced people worldwide to stay indoors or self-isolate at homes and practice self-care, including self-pleasure. This has led to an increase in the sales of sex toys, especially in developed and developing markets. Sales of products such as personal massagers, vibrators, flashlights, blindfolds, handcuffs, and bondage items have surpassed the estimated sales for the last 3 months compared to 2020.
The e-commerce segment dominated the market and held the largest revenue share of 63.5% in 2020. Increasing penetration of the internet and the availability of numerous sex toys on e-commerce platforms are driving the growth of the segment. The anonymity maintained in product delivery is an added advantage for customers opting for online purchases over brick and mortar adult stores.
With worldwide lockdown to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, online stores and retailers have reported significantly high demand for sex toys. To fulfill this increasing demand for sex toys during the period of self-quarantine, maintaining an adequate supply is a major challenge for manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. The supply and distribution chain are adversely affected due to the global shutdown of air freights and shipments. This is expected to increase import duties in several countries, which in turn is expected to increase the prices of imported sex toys.
In developing countries, sales of toys have legal concerns and online retailers are often the only source of purchase. According to a survey by Reckitt Benckiser in 2020, around 74.0% of Indians expressed their interest to explore and try new things sexually. More than 35.0% of the online orders for sex toys in India are from non-metro and tier 1 cities.
