In 2018, the sex toys segment led the market. Sex toys are witnessing high demand due to the growth in online sales distribution channels.

Condoms remain the most widely used contraceptive across the US with a revenue share of more than 34% in 2018.

The female condom market in the US is also witnessing rapid growth in demand. The exotic lingerie market in the US is witnessing a steady and healthy growth. The market constitutes risqu lingerie, such as teddies, baby dolls, corsets, slips, and sensual innerwear.
Given the long-lasting perception of the sexual wellness industry being a male-centric market, several products developed in the market - condoms or sexual lubricants - have focused on men. The condom segment, which is largely dominated by males, can be a lucrative revenue avenue for vendors. Furthermore, a push for evolving gender-neutral tones becomes essential as the market is expected to attain maturity, thereby forcing vendors to think and strategize differently.
The market by women end-users has reasonable opportunities waiting for vendors as more wellness programs and products are aimed at women folk. Vendors can consider pitching up to their products, which align sex with wellness. With recent innovations in the market and the quickly fading taboo status of sex, vendors are launching their innovative ideas with women as the target audience.
Sexual wellness products are mainly sold through retail distribution channels such as specialty stores, supermarkets, hypermarkets, mass-market players, drug stores or pharmacies, and grocery stores. Manufacturers are harnessing sex specialty stores and supermarkets due to personalized customer services, which is boosting the offline retail market. Although online purchasing is increasing, a significant share of product distribution takes place through sex specialty stores.
Adherence to USFDA standards and other regulations remains a key priority for vendors catering to the US market. The entry of condom manufacturers such as Reckitt Benckiser and Church & Dwight in the US market has also increased the sale of sex toys and sexual lubricants through retail stores. In 2018, the retail segment contributed the highest revenue to the US sexual wellness market. The online segment is facing intense competition from the retail segment because of the entry of traditional condom manufacturers, which have increased the visibility of these products in store shelves across the country.

The rapidly changing technological environment could adversely affect vendors as customers expect continual innovations and upgrades.
