Adult & Pornographic Websites

Online piracy and the rapid emergence of free ad-supported pornography sites have hampered the Adult and Pornographic Websites industry in the five years to 2016. In the next five-year period, the industry is expected to recover thanks to emerging demand from mobile and tablet devices. Demand for pornographic and adult websites from emerging countries will also boost operators; consumption will increase with the adoption of internet-ready devices.

This industry distributes pornographic content to subscribers via the internet. It generates revenue through advertisements and membership subscriptions. The industry does not include offline distribution of pornography. It is important to note that while many industry operators are vertically integrated companies that are involved in shooting pornographic videos, the majority of players in the industry simply manage adult websites and do not create original content.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
