DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 12, 2023--

The global personal lubricant market size reached US$ 1.13 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the market to reach US$ 1.73 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.36% during 2021-2027.

Personal lubricant refers to specialized lubes, liquids, and gels that are applied on individuals’ private parts, including the vagina, anus, and penis, to reduce pain and friction during masturbation and sexual intercourse, providing a pleasurable experience. It is manufactured from the combination of various ingredients, such as glycerin, purified or deionized water, vinyl dimethicone, polyethylene glycol, hydroxyethyl cellulose, and carboxymethyl cellulose.

Currently, personal lubricant is commercially available in water-, silicone-, oil-, and hybrid-based product types. They help relieve pain, curl vaginal dryness or chafing, mitigate irritations, reduce the risk of injuries, and provide protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Based on these properties, personal lubricant is used to enhance arousal and allow deeper penetration.


Personal Lubricant Market Trends:

The increasing need for various personal care products and the rising prevalence of vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction has facilitated the widespread adoption of personal lubricants as a practical substitute to improve the sexual experience, which, in turn, is majorly driving the market growth.

Additionally, the extensive utilization of water-based personal lubes due to their gel-like structure, proven efficiency, easy-to-clean formula, and higher compatibility with condoms and sex toys are acting as another growth-inducing factor.

In line with this, the advent of premium medicated lubricants in diverse types and flavors, such as k-y jelly and Replens, and their availability across online and offline drug and grocery stores are propelling the market growth. Such products help deal with excess dryness and vaginal tears that might cause STIs.

Apart from this, the escalating consumer awareness regarding the diverse usability of the product and favorable initiatives undertaken by governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to offer proper sex education in educational settings to sensitize younger demographics are creating a positive outlook for the market.
