In-depth Analysis and Data-driven Insights on the Impact of COVID-19 Included in this U.S. Sexual Wellness Market Report

The U.S. sexual wellness market was valued at USD 5.80 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 9.34 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.27%.


Market growth in the US is due to the innovation and introduction of new product formats. 1 out of 5 people in the US have STIs totaling over 65 million STI cases in the country; therefore, contraceptives are no longer confined to birth control; and this has fueled the sexual wellness market, especially the demand for condoms in the country.

The US dominated the sexual wellness market in North America in 2020. Large-scale condoms and other sexual wellness product promotions have enabled the government and vendors to reach audiences, especially in the South region.


• Southern US dominated the sexual wellness market with a one-third share in 2020 and will grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period
• The demand for condoms is expected to increase from institutional buyers such as USAID, UNFPA, WHO, and other NGOs and foundations. However, the need for female condoms will witness strong traction in the country after the arrival of low-cost female condoms and expand the retail presence of significant players.
• Southern and Mid-Western US have high growth potential factors for condoms. Constant product development and bringing in new features are keys to achieve increased growth in sales.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the U.S. sexual wellness market

• Growing penetration of the digital marketplace
• The rising shift towards female customers
• Innovation in condom designs
• Sex education programs driving awareness
• Government initiative for free condom distribution
• Increasing acceptance of sexual wellness products among women
• The evolvement of gender-neutral tone in the market

The exotic lingerie and sexual lubricant segments are seeing increased demand among end-users during the forecast period
• The sexual wellness market for males accounted for a lion share in 2020; due to the growing shift of vendors toward creating female-centric products, the sexual wellness products catering to the female gender are expected to grow at a significant CAGR as compared to male products.
