Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing internet and smartphone penetration. The advent of technology has affected consumer shopping behaviors and their buying practices as an increasing number of users are connected to the internet. The ease of accessibility of the internet has been compounded by an ever-growing penetration of smartphones globally.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing demand from a globally increasing LGBT population. A distinct population group in which individuals identify themselves in terms of their sexual orientation, specifically as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is collectively referred to as the LGBT population. Globally, particularly in some countries of the Americas and EMEA, many people have started accepting their sexual orientation and are increasingly coming out to identify themselves as a part of the LGBT community.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Side effects of sexual wellness products. Though sexual wellness products are increasingly becoming socially accepted, consumers are concerned about the negative side effects of these products. The materials and ingredients such as rubber, plastic, latex, and nitrile used in these products need to be scrutinized as they come in direct interaction with intimate areas of the skin, which makes them prone to reactions such as pain, irritation, numbness, and inflammation or swelling.
