Global Sexual Wellness Market Drivers:

Global Health Organizations and other organizations' efforts for bettering women's health in many underprivileged countries have positively contributed to the market growth of sexual wellness products, especially sex toys. The rising prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV and the need to prevent these diseases propel the market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, the ease of online shopping due to the increasing usage of the internet through smartphones and other smart devices has increased sales of sexual wellness products.

Growing awareness among people is likely to boost market growth.
The growing number of customers using various sex toys for developing sexual experiences and growing awareness regarding sexual health products accelerates the growth rate of the global sexual wellness market. With the increasing incidences of AIDS/HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, introducing the latest sex toys worldwide and growing familiarity with sex toys in developing countries such as China, India, and Brazil are expected to boost the global sexual wellness market. In addition, rising awareness in people through digital advertisements and sexual wellness products such as contraceptives and other vibrators are gaining more popularity in the recent past.
With the increased presence of deep-rooted market players, the key players focus on new product offerings with rising developed and secured devices for various physical activities propelling market growth. In addition, the increasing concern regarding personal hygiene and the easy availability of low-cost products at stores that provide significant discounts are favorable signals for the market to grow further.

Global Sexual Wellness Market Restraints:
The key factor affecting the growth of the sexual wellness market is the reservations and societal hindrances associated with sexual wellness products. The lack of awareness among people regarding the benefits of these products is the leading cause of reservations and social hindrances. Sexual products and business are seen as taboo in many cultures, and therefore personal reservations and prejudice against these products can cause losses for the market. In addition, harmful chemicals in these sexual wellness products can be dangerous to the body and are a significantly restricting factor. The accessibility of substitutes for condoms is also a negatively impacting factor. Latex condoms can result in infections leading to hesitance toward their use.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global sexual wellness market:
COVID-19 has positively impacted the sexual wellness market globally. The coronavirus prevalence over the globe resulted in a lockdown and restricted movement in most areas worldwide. It increased the demand for sexual wellness products. The lack of social gatherings and social life resulted in more people using products like vibrators to satisfy themselves sexually. The lack of outside movement resulted in an increase in the usage of condoms in almost all parts of the world. The increasing government initiatives about improving women have impacted more people in lockdown than in normal circumstances. The surge in the usage of smartphones and the internet resulted in shopping at online sites at a considerable level, thus increasing the revenue of sexual wellness products.
