Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increase in lesbian population. The lesbian segment is very significant today with over 3% of the overall population being attracted to the same sex. There is an increase in acceptability of lesbians into the society in the developed nations such as the US and Canada. The number of people admitting to their true sexual orientation has increased over the past decade, with society gradually becoming more accepting.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is consumer perspective. Sexual experiences have long been overhyped and dramatized in most of the conventional societies. However, this has been changing as consumers are becoming more sexually empowered with increased awareness and a supportive environment. Aids such as dildos and vibrators help satisfy consumers' sexual fantasies. The development of the BDSM concept and the acceptance of homosexuality, which was earlier viewed as perversion among people from most cultures, are also leading to increased exploration of sexuality, strengthening their demand in the market. In addition, there is an increased penetration of online pornographic videos due to the fast improving internet growth rate.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is taboos in culture and national laws. The use of sex toys such as dildos and vibrators are becoming more acceptable; however, a big part of the society still views these products as taboo. In the 1920s, adult vibrators began to feature in pornography, creating a social stigma in the minds of the people. This perception of the society discourages people from openly buying these products. For instance, some states within the US still have laws prohibiting the sale of dildos, vibrators, and other such sex toys due to the graphic packaging of the product, preventing it from being exhibited in public. In the last few years though, the emergence of e-commerce has helped overcome this hurdle to a large extent by maintaining the anonymity of the buyer.
