Global Sex Toys Market Report 2022: Market to Reach $54.6 Billion by 2026

According to the recent market study by Technavio, the Sex Toys Market is expected to increase by USD 19.85 billion from 2021 to 2026, with an accelerated CAGR of 11.27%. The report provides a detailed analysis of drivers and opportunities, top winning strategies, competitive scenarios, future market trends, market size and estimations, and major investment pockets.

Vibrators, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 8.2% CAGR to reach US$25.9 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Dildos segment is readjusted to a revised 7.1% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 24.3% share of the global Sex Toys market.

In 2019, it was a 28.64-billion-dollar industry. By 2026, the global adult toy market is anticipated to reach a volume of 52.7 billion dollars. The annual growth rate in sales is approximately nine percent over the forecast period.

The most commonly owned kind of sex toy across the world is the good, old vibrator. It’s followed by dildos and approximately 65 percent of women in America report owning some kind of sex toy or another.

Online sex toy buying could be considered a large contributing factor to the growing popularity of such products. Gone are the days of having to stand in front of the sex shop and gather the courage to go inside. Online shopping opportunities make it easy for even the most conservative segments of society to begin exploring toys.

The current situation that the world has found itself in happens to be another interesting factor that has contributed to a sex toy boom. Multiple countries, from EU member states to India, have reported a massive increase in online sex toy sales since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Obviously, that’s an isolated occurrence but it demonstrates just how much the attitude of people towards the ownership of adult toys has changed.

The empowerment of women is a large contributing factor to the sex toy boom.

TV shows like Sex and the City put adult toys in the spotlight. And they did so in a good way. Most of us who have watched the show remember the vibrator discussion in the café, followed by the introduction of the amazing powers of the rabbit vibrator. Such productions focused on female sexuality and empowerment made sex toys mainstream and prompted many to give them a try.

Products targeting men and couples have been growing in significance over the past few years. HotCherry adult toys provide an excellent example of all the niches and societal segments that the sex toy market caters to. Not only are there sex toys for couples, there are sex toys for same-sex couples, sex toys for people in a long distance relationship. The market evolves to become more inclusive, which gives more individuals access to the products that are catered to their specific sex life. Needless to say, such diversity will pay off in the form of growing sales.

Certain parts of the world have long been recognized for their openness towards sex toys. Europe leads the way and has always been the least conservative part of the world. The adoption of sex toys is also widespread in the United States and Canada.

Research, however, suggests that many conservative societies are starting to open up to the idea.

The popularity of sex toys in India, for example, has grown exponentially. Online adult stores in India offer a plethora of products for singles and for couples. These appeal predominantly to younger Indians, who are getting engaged in a sexual revolution of sorts.

Sex toy store owners also believe that Indian society is changing and becoming somewhat more liberal. People are starting to talk about sex toy usage among themselves. Such exchanges are contributing to curiosity and sooner or later, that curiosity transforms into a purchase.

The sexual wellness market in India is anticipated to grow at a rate of 34.8 percent per year annually in the coming years. Currently, India is responsible for approximately 20 percent of the worldwide Google searches on products like lubricants, erotic lingerie and sex toys.

The Arab world is another conservative market segment showing signs of change.

While there are still Arab countries where sex toy ownership is banned (you could get arrested for their ownership in Saudi Arabia), parts of the Middle East are welcoming a sexual revolution.

In Bahrain, adult toy shops are thriving. They still offer a limited range of products as replications of sensitive body parts are religiously unacceptable. Discussions of sex and pleasure are a taboo in the Gulf region but this doesn’t mean society isn’t interested. In fact, the sex shops are doing pretty well, despite the limited range of options.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $12.6 Billion in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $8 Billion by 2026 

The Sex Toys market in the U.S. is estimated at US$12.6 Billion in the year 2021. The country currently accounts for a 33% share in the global market. China, the world’s second largest economy, is forecast to reach an estimated market size of US$8 Billion in the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 10.4% through the analysis period.

Among the other noteworthy geographic markets are Japan and Canada, each forecast to grow at 6.1% and 7.3% respectively over the analysis period. Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 6.4% CAGR while the rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$4 Billion by the end of the analysis period. 

With the development of the adult toy industry, there’s something for just about everyone out there. The more manufacturers branch out, the more people they’ll reach. Chances are that the sex toy boom will continue even beyond the forecast period to give people happier, kinkier and much more enjoyable sex.

Halloween Spending Soars Despite Economic Challenges

Halloween in the United States is witnessing a surprising trend: record-high spending in the face of economic challenges. In 2023, spending on Halloween is expected to reach a historic $12.2 billion, surpassing the already impressive $10.6 billion spent in 2022, as reported by the National Retail Federation (NRF). This growth occurs despite the backdrop of rising inflation and looming economic uncertainties.

The breakdown of spending shows a notable increase in various categories:
$4.1 billion on costumes, up from $3.6 billion in 2022.
$3.9 billion on decorations.
$3.6 billion on candy, an increase from $3.1 billion the previous year.

Moreover, the average per-person spending is forecasted to rise to $108.24, exceeding the 2021 record of $102.74. This surge in expenditure highlights an interesting dynamic: while facing inflationary pressures, Americans are not shying away from celebrating Halloween in grandeur.

In 2023, the NRF survey revealed that 73% of respondents planned to partake in Halloween-related activities, a slight increase from 69% in 2022. This shift to more in-person festivities follows the COVID-19 pandemic, which had dampened the holiday spirit in previous years.

However, economic challenges are shaping consumers’ shopping habits. Reports from PowerReviews indicate that 73% of Americans are adjusting their Halloween shopping due to financial strains. Cost-saving measures include recycling costumes, buying cheaper candy, and shopping for sales and discounts. Nearly half of the consumers plan to start shopping before October, a strategy to spread out expenses over time.

Despite these cost-conscious approaches, some consumers are turning to credit card debt and Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) options to finance their holiday expenses. This trend underscores the current financial landscape where people are struggling yet still willing to spend on holidays like Halloween.

To manage these expenses, consumers are advised to create a holiday budget and stick to it, shop for deals, and consider financial options like personal loans for debt consolidation. Retailers, recognizing the tightening budgets, are focusing on personalized promotions and in-store experiences to attract shoppers.

In conclusion, while the economic landscape presents challenges, the allure of Halloween remains strong in the U.S., with consumers eager to celebrate the spooky season, albeit with a more budget-conscious approach.
