Market Dynamics

Key Market Drivers

  • Use for medical purposes

    When it comes to treating sexual dysfunctions in a variety of patient demographics, such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and anorgasmia, sexual gadgets are still employed in clinical practise. The FDA has approved several sexual devices for medical purposes, while others have been developed in collaboration with stakeholders such as people with disabilities. Sexual devices are explored as preventive measures in the context of public health, in addition to being utilised as therapeutic aids and this can be a potential driver in market growth of these sex toys in LAMEA region.
  • Acceptance of the LGBTQ Community: 

Acceptance refers to how positively and inclusively LGBTI people are perceived, both in terms of an individual's opinions on LGBTI people and their position on LGBTI policy. Acceptance refers to how favourably and inclusively LGBTI people are seen, both in terms of individual attitudes toward LGBTI people and in terms of policy positions on LGBTI issues. Legalizing homosexuality, for example, is first step toward acceptance, but the region still has a long way to go before the LGBTQ+ population is truly accepted. With rising literacy and education, acceptance of LGBTQ people will grow even more, driving the market for sex toys in the LAMEA region.

Key Market Restraints

  • Uncertainties in the economy and continuing conflicts

    The situation in the region is deteriorating due to economic uncertainty and persistent hostilities. Countries like Syria, Libya, and Yemen, for example, are engulfed in violence and unable to execute public health initiatives. Iran was in a profound economic slump as a result of US sanctions. Oil production and export are also an important source of economic stability in Middle Eastern countries and these tensions are expected to restrict market growth to some extent.
  • Chemicals in sex toys are preventing the market from expanding:

    As they are easily available and have a natural feel, plastic-mode sex toys are popular. On the other hand, these jelly plastics include a considerable number of phthalates, which seep out of the PVC, pass through the skin, and accumulate in the body. Toxic chemicals such as trimethyl tin chloride and toluene, among others, have been linked to reproductive and developmental harm. Sex toy exposure was found to be detrimental to pregnant and breastfeeding moms, as well as causing neurological damage and learning difficulties in adults, according to researchers.

Key Market Opportunities

  • The stigma associated with selling sexual things in ordinary stores is diminishing, and affordable sexual health products, such as gels and toys, are becoming more widely available. The move mirrors a generational transition, as millennials see sexual health differently than baby boomers. The sex toys industry benefits from the lessening stigma associated with masturbation, particularly among married couples, and this will provide an opportunity for market leaders.

Segmental Analysis

The LAMEA sex toys market is classified into the following categories:

The female segment dominated the market in 2020, accounting for almost 60% of total sales. Despite the societal stigma and embarrassment, there is a vast choice of women's clothing accessible. The wellness area has vibrators, dildos, and anal beads on display. When producing toys based on female anatomy, manufacturers have traditionally targeted women.

The male sex toys industry is expected to rise as the popularity of male sex toys such as penile rings, penis pumps, and penis vibrators grows. In their wellness departments, online merchants and hypermarkets sell sex toys alongside condoms, making it simple for men to improve their sexual health.

E-commerce platforms and online merchants will control more than 60% of the market by 2020. Increased internet access and the availability of a range of sex toys on e-Commerce platforms are fuelling the segment's growth. Customers who choose online shopping over traditional adult stores benefit from product delivery anonymity. Based on distribution techniques, the worldwide sex toys market is divided into three sectors: e-commerce, specialty stores, and mass merchandisers.

Regional Analysis

The LAMEA sex toys market is expected to be worth USD 5.302 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.95 percent between 2022 and 2030. The sex toys market in the Middle East and Africa is expected to be worth USD 2112 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.80% from 2022 to 2030. E-commerce is a popular method of selling sex toys in the LAMEA region because it efficiently protects customers' privacy by not placing their names on goods and not disclosing customer information during product delivery. E-commerce, which includes business websites, smartphone apps, and social media, is the most diverse distribution channel.

The situation in the Middle East region is deteriorating due to economic uncertainty and persistent hostilities. Countries like Syria, Libya, and Yemen, for example, are engulfed in violence and unable to execute public health initiatives. Iran was in a profound economic slump as a result of US sanctions. Oil production and export are also an important source of economic stability in Middle Eastern countries. The latest pandemic, on the other hand, is producing economic turmoil in the Middle East. Major repercussions in the region include a sudden decline in internal and external demand for goods and products, particularly crude oil, as well as production halts owing to manpower shortages. Lingerie and vibrators are popular with South Africans, according to research, with market demand increasing 122 percent and 124 percent, respectively, in April 2020 compared to April 2019.

Brazilians recently sought for X-rated goods at a pace of 126 percent higher than the previous year. Such significant internet traffic for purchasing sex items via the online channel helps the market flourish after the pandemic. Since the late 1990s, the Brazil’s sex toy sector has expanded at a constant rate of 10% to 15% per year, but the market has exploded in recent years as Brazil's economy takes off. Imported dildos, lingerie, and similar accouterments have hitherto been reserved for the wealthy.

Colombians have a restrictive attitude toward sexuality and talking about it. It's a fantastic time for people to work on their curiosity and recognize that buying and using these things is a good thing, as times are changing and people's attitudes regarding sexuality are shifting positively and this is reflected as demand is increasing for these sex toys in the region.
