Sex sells: Greater social acceptance of sex paraphernalia is boosting industry demand



Abstract

Adult Stores

Escalating external competition from online and mainstream adult product retailers, which increasingly carry vibrators and other erotica, has pressured growth in the Adult Stores industry. Over the past five years, as shoppers enjoyed the benefits of purchasing adult products online, which include anonymity, wider purchase selection and lower prices, industry revenue grew moderately. Still, the widespread acceptance of sex paraphernalia, evidenced by mainstream stores such as Walmart and CVS carrying some adult products and increased sexuality on TV, has helped boost demand for industry stores. In the coming years, the industry is anticipated to benefit from rising disposable income, which will increase spending on adult paraphernalia.

This industry includes companies that primarily retail sex paraphernalia, or erotica, including pornographic DVDs and magazines and sex toys and enhancement products. Stores that primarily sell movies are excluded from the industry. This industry also excludes revenue from all goods sold off premises, such as online, through mail-order catalogs or over the phone.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
