Sexual Wellness Market Segmentation
The global sexual wellness market research report includes a detailed segmentation by distribution, product, gender, and geography. In 2019, the sex toys segment led the market with a share of over 57%. Sex toys are witnessing a high demand from countries such as the US, China, and Japan. Historically, men have been primary customers; however, this sexual wellness trend is witnessing a shift as women are becoming sexually empowered globally. There is also growing demand for both shared and solo sex toys among end-users. China has emerged as the key manufacturer of these products across the globe as more than 70% of sex toys are manufactured in China.

Condoms are considered as one of the most effective ways to prevent STDs. Thus, governments, NGOs, and foundations across the globe are involved in the distribution of condoms among individuals in several countries. Further, they are low-cost alternatives for birth control. This, coupled with innovation in condom designs, has fueled the demand for condoms across the globe. In terms of volume, the male condom market constituted close to 99% of the sexual wellness market share in 2019.

Sexual wellness products are mainly sold through retail distribution channels such as specialty stores, supermarkets, hypermarkets, mass-market players, drug stores or pharmacies, and grocery stores. Manufacturers have been focusing keenly on the process of low-cost manufacturing.

The entry of Reckitt Benckiser and Church & Dwight in the market has increased the sale of sex toys and lubricants through retail stores such as sex specialty stores and supermarkets worldwide. Although the trend of selling these devices online is increasing, a significant share of sexual wellness product distribution takes place through sex specialty stores. The growth in online sales is set to increase by over 20% YOY during the forecast period. The primary reason is online stores offer a variety of options to choose from than retail stores. Moreover, over 95% of online retailers offer sexual wellness supplements & products at discounted prices rather than list prices that may be applicable in sex specialty stores and other brick-and-mortar distribution channels.

In terms of gender, the male segment accounted for a sexual wellness market share of over 75% in 2019, which is expected to decline to 73% by 2025 owing to the growing shift toward female-centric products. Several products developed in the market have focused on men. Male customers tend to offer better opportunities for vendors in the sexual wellness industry. With more than 30.1 million men who have erectile dysfunction in the US alone, the sexual lubricant market is witnessing immense opportunities owing to the need for lubricants. Condoms and sex toys have a high demand among male customers in the market.

The global sexual wellness market share is currently intensifying. The rapidly changing technological environment could adversely affect vendors as customers expect continual innovations and upgrades. The market is moderately fragmented, with many sexual wellness brands providing lubricants with high functionalities and designs. LifeStyles, Reckitt Benckiser, Diamond Products, and Church & Dwight are among a few major vendors in the market. All these sexual wellness companies have a presence in three major geographical regions - North America, APAC, and Europe. However, there are local vendors providing products with similar specifications at low prices. This has intensified price wars among vendors. The market has the threat of infiltration with low-quality products.
