U.S. Sextech market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The players in the market are investing in product development to provide more immersive sexual experiences to the customers. This has led to an increase in demand for sextech products and services that can enhance the user experience. For instance, numerous products, such as sex toys, are now equipped with remote connectivity features that allow users to control them using a smartphone app or remote control. This feature allows users to engage in sexual activities with their partner, even if they are physically apart.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the sextech market. While it has led to increased demand for some products, it has also resulted in disruptions in the supply chain and changes in consumer behavior. With people compelled to stay at home and maintain social distancing, there has been an increase in demand for remote sextech products, such as video chat platforms and remote-controlled sex toys. These products have allowed people to maintain intimate relationships with their partners even when physically apart. However, the pandemic has led to disruptions in the global supply chain, affecting the production and distribution of some sextech products.

The increasing regulations on the advertising the sextech products adversely impacts the growth of the market. Sextech products are subject to advertising regulations, which can vary by country and region. For instance, social media platforms such as Facebook restricts the promotion of adult products or services. Hence, such restrictions restrain companies to implement an effective marketing strategy to enhance its sales revenue.

Product Insights

The Bluetooth-enabled sex toys segment has captured the largest market share of 37.9% in 2022 and is expected to maintain dominance with a significant growth rate. These toys use Bluetooth technology to connect to a smartphone app, allowing users to control the toy's functions, such as vibration patterns and intensity levels, from their phone. The technology is easy to incorporate into any sex toy at relatively lower cost. Thus, this allows players to sell Bluetooth-based sextech product at lower price ranges and in high volume to maximize the profit. For instance, in January 2020, OhMiBod launched blueMotion NEX|3, a Bluetooth-enabled, vibrating couples ring with features that allow users to listen to music on the mobile.

The VR porn segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. VR porn is a popular and innovative product in the Sextech market, offering users an immersive and interactive experience that is accessible from anywhere in the world. However, producers must navigate legal concerns to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations. Players in the market are focusing on delivering new content on weekly basis to gain a larger market share.

Direct-to-consumer (D2C) is a major distribution channel with 71.75% market share in 2022.

For instance, in September 2021, an article mention the statement by the Co-founder of Maude, stating that the sextech company is expecting 80% revenue through D2C channel. Additionally, it offers access to valuable data insights that can be used to improve their products and marketing strategies. This data can be used to identify trends and preferences among their target audience, helping them to create better products and more effective marketing campaigns.

However, it is essential to ensure that the platform's policies and guidelines align with the sextech company's products and services. Some e-commerce platforms may have restrictions or guidelines that prohibit the sale of adult-oriented products. It is crucial to review the platform's policies before listing any sextech products or services. Additionally, it is important to ensure that the products listed comply with all relevant laws and regulations. For instance, Amazon allows the sale of some sextech products, such as vibrators, as long as they meet their specific requirements. For example, the products must be new, unopened, and in their original packaging. Additionally, the product images and descriptions must adhere to Amazon's content guidelines, which prohibit explicit images and descriptions.
