About This Report


Sexual services have historically proven resistant to economic slowdowns. Regular clients of sex workers are regarded as loyal, and will often abandon other discretionary spending before reducing spending on sexual services. However, in 2008-09, as unemployment began to rise, consumers became uncertain about their financial futures. As a result, industry revenue fell substantially during the year, while street prostitution increased. The short-term cyclical effects of the global financial crisis have since passed. Nevertheless, the heavily regulated industry (excluding illegal operators) has raised fees across the board.

This industry comprises companies that are mainly engaged in operating brothels and providing escort and prostitution services. The report analyses brothel activity and legal transactions for actual sexual services. The industry does not include stripping, erotic dancing, adult internet services (such as dating or the display of pornography), telephone sex chat lines, the making and retailing of adult video entertainment or the manufacture and retailing of sexual aids.

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