The global sex toys market was valued at $38,689.3 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $47,615.4 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.3%. The vibrators segment was the highest revenue contributor, accounting for $14,765.4 million in 2020, with a CAGR of 3.8%.Sex toys or adult toys are also recognized as marital aids. These devices are used to get more pleasure during sex or masturbation. Sex toys include dildos, vibrators, strap-ons, vibrating panties, cock cages, blindfolds & feathers, and male masturbators.The sex toys industry is still at the nascent stage in various developing economies such as India, Middle East countries, and Some South-East Asian countries. The growing trend of embracing sexuality among Indians is amajor factor leading to demand for sex toys. Moreover, the law guiding the sale of sex toys in India is vague and prudish, which is enabling retailers to offer a variety of sex toys and accessories. However, the market is also exposed to some restrains. Presence of social taboos and negative social perception toward sex toys are expected to hamper the market growth in India and the Middle East during the forecast period.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has positively affected the sex toys market. Sales of products has witnessed significant increase online as it offers to shoppers, a good number of options, discounts, and door step delivery. In most countries, including India, there is a ban on displaying sex toys in public, which promotes their sales on online stores portals. Sexual activity has decreased as a result of the rise in hectic schedules, stress, frustration, psychiatric disorders, and medical problems. For instance, medical conditions including low testosterone, drugs, restless legs syndrome (RLS), depression, chronic disease, sleep disorders, and ageing cause a decline in men's and women's sexual stamina, which in turn lowers their level of ardour during sexual activities. Researchers found that men with RLS are more likely than men without RLS to experience erectile dysfunction (ED). As a result, the number of sexual activities between men and women has fallen, which has led to a decline in the market for sexual wellness items including sex toys, condoms, female contraception, and others.

A significant segment of the sexual wellness market includes sex toys. The usage of numerous goods, including sex toys, contraceptives, lubricants, delay sprays, pregnancy testing kits, and vaginal sexual health products, can help a person maintain their physical, emotional, and sexual well-being. Moreover, items that improve the pleasure of a sexual encounter, offer protection from STDs, and lower the danger of unintended pregnancy are regarded as sexual wellness items. Sex toys are linked to a number of advantages, including a decreased risk of unintended pregnancy and STDs as well as a doubled enjoyment of sex with or without a partner.

Consumer interest in and use of sexual wellness products is greatly influenced by technological advancements. To differentiate themselves from their rivals, many major firms in the market are improving their products. The availability of sex toys with sensors now is further projected to have a favorable impact on the global sex toys market throughout the course of the forecast period.

The rise in millennials' sexual preferences and increased consumer knowledge of sex toys are anticipated to fuel market expansion throughout the predicated period. Moreover, difficulties like hectic schedules, stress, frustration, medication, age disorders, and hormone problems are anticipated to impair an individual's sexual stamina; as a result, wellness items like sex toys have become extremely popular among young couples. Key players operating in the global sex toys market are adopting product launch and acquisition as their key developmental strategies to cater to the increase in requirements of customers. Acquisition would help the companies to share technological requirements for their existing and new products. This would ultimately help the market leaders to enhance their product portfolio with comparatively less investment and thereby increase their market share.

Social marketing is a sort of intervention in which brands for sexual health products are created, promoted, and sold to a particular target demographic. This platform is mostly used to market condoms and sex toys in order to encourage their use and raise awareness of STDs. There are other additional strategies that support market expansion, such as the public (free) and private distribution of condoms. In developing nations like China and India, social marketing has become incredibly popular for condom branding and sales.

Governments and NGOs have also used social marketing to deliver health services, such as family planning and HIV-AIDS awareness. In contraceptive social marketing, manufacturers of contraceptives give their products to NGOs, social marketing firms, or both. To make the subsidized goods accessible to the target population, these organizations or NGOs employ already-existing commercial and noncommercial distribution networks and retail outlets.

Since millennials are the primary buyers of sex toys, the growth of the millennial population has a direct impact on the market. Also, it has been observed that the youthful generation is becoming much more interested in sexually explicit products. As of 2019, India's population was more than 50% under 25 and more than 65% under 35, which is expected to increase demand for condoms, contraception, and sex toys. In addition, women's financial independence, gender equality, and ability to make their own decisions enable them to do so. As a result, marketers should see women as independent consumers of condoms and other contraceptives.

This is explained by the fact that there are many products available for different communities, such as double dildos, tongue vibes, nipple vibes, and cock rings for lesbian couples and butt plugs, anal dildos, and butt rings for gay couples.

However, sexual activity has decreased as a result of the rise in hectic schedules, stress, frustration, psychiatric disorders, and medical problems. For instance, medical conditions including low testosterone, drugs, restless legs syndrome (RLS), depression, chronic disease, sleep disorders, and ageing cause a decline in men's and women's sexual stamina, which in turn lowers their level of ardour during sexual activities. Researchers found that men with RLS are more likely than men without RLS to experience erectile dysfunction (ED). As a result, the number of sexual activities between men and women has fallen, which has led to a decline in the market for sexual wellness items including sex toys, condoms, female contraception, and others.
