Market outlook of the sports equipment market

Technavio€™s research analyst predicts the global sports equipment market to grow at a CAGR of around 3% during the forecast period. The increased awareness of a healthy lifestyle is a key driver for the growth of this market. A hectic lifestyle coupled with rising health issues such as obesity has created a demand for fitness-related sports equipment.

The rising demand for lightweight sports equipment is also expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. Modern lightweight sports equipment help consumers yield high performance due to their excellent stiffness and high strength. Moreover, they also give full control to the user over the equipment and provide them with a high level of flexibility. Carbon fibre is emerging as a popular replacement for traditional metal, wood, and steel in modern sports equipment.
