Market Outlook:

  • The global sex toys market was valued at USD XX.XX Million in 2023 and is projected to reach USD XX.XX Million by 2031, registering a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.69%. Among various segments, vibrators contributed the highest revenue, accounting for USD 14,765.4 million in 2020, with a CAGR of 3.8%. 


  • Sex toys, also known as adult toys or marital aids, are devices used to enhance pleasure during sexual activities or masturbation. These devices include dildos, vibrators, strap-ons, vibrating panties, cock cages, blindfolds & feathers, and male masturbators.


  • The sex toys industry is still in its nascent stage in several developing economies such as India, Middle Eastern countries, and some South-East Asian countries. The increasing trend of embracing sexuality among Indians is a major factor driving the demand for sex toys. Additionally, the ambiguous and conservative laws governing the sale of sex toys in India enable retailers to offer a variety of sex toys and accessories. However, the market faces certain restraints, including social taboos and negative perceptions toward sex toys, which are expected to hinder market growth in India and the Middle East during the forecast period.


  • The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive effect on the sex toys market. Online sales of these products have witnessed a significant increase due to the availability of a wide range of options, discounts, and doorstep delivery. In many countries, restrictions on displaying sex toys in public have further promoted their sales on online platforms.


  • A decrease in sexual activity has been observed due to factors such as hectic schedules, stress, frustration, psychiatric disorders, and medical problems. Medical conditions such as low testosterone, certain medications, restless legs syndrome (RLS), depression, chronic diseases, sleep disorders, and aging contribute to a decline in men's and women's sexual stamina, subsequently reducing their interest in sexual activities. Research indicates that men with RLS are more likely to experience erectile dysfunction (ED) than those without RLS. Consequently, the decline in sexual activity has led to a decrease in the market for sexual wellness products, including sex toys, condoms, female contraception, and others.

Market Dynamics:


The stigma associated with sexual activities and experimentation is diminishing due to increased liberalization and growing acceptance of homosexuality. Sex-positive movements have played a significant role in dispelling stereotypes related to gender, age, and social constructs. The growing acceptance of the LGBTQ community has led to an increased adoption of vibrators and similar accessories. Women are increasingly engaging in open discussions about sexuality and are exploring sexual wellness products without hesitation. Previously hesitant, banks and investors are now showing interest in funding ventures in the sexual wellness products industry. The recent shift in stereotypical perceptions has led to an increase in investments from angel investors in this sector.


Most sex toys are made from materials like plastic, silicone, rubber, and glass, which can contain hazardous compounds such as phthalates, Bisphenol-A (BPA), and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC). These chemicals have been associated with hormonal imbalances, infertility, and potential carcinogenic effects. To ensure consumer safety, it's vital to choose sex toys made from non-hazardous materials free from harmful chemicals. Consumers should look for certifications from regulatory agencies like the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on the packaging. Manufacturers are responsible for producing safe toys that meet stringent safety standards.


Sex toys have gained widespread acceptance and accessibility, largely due to their portrayal in popular TV shows and films, particularly in developed nations such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. According to an analysis by the Pew Research Centre, millennials have an average annual income of approximately USD 69,000, with more than 70% of women in millennial households working full-time, contributing to this income. A 2019 survey by Reckitt Benckiser found that about 74% of Indians were open to trying new sexual experiences. In India, non-metropolitan areas and tier 1 cities account for over 35% of internet orders for sex toys. The availability of diverse options and the anonymity provided by online shopping platforms contribute to the increased adoption of sex toys. As disposable income continues to rise, It is anticipated that this trend will continue to foster opportunities for the growth in demand for sex toys. 


The global sex toy market's expansion faces challenges due to the existence of inconsistent and unclear regulations governing the sale and marketing of these products across different regions. These regulatory hurdles make it difficult for companies to navigate the legal landscape in each market, hindering their ability to effectively promote and distribute their products on a global scale
