The rising incidences of sports participation across the globe have expanded the growth avenues for the sports protective equipment market, as per a study by Grand View Research.

The global sports protective equipment market size is expected to reach USD 12.1 billion by 2025, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. The industry is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period. The growing popularity of sports activities in schools and colleges that has resulted in an exponential increase in participation is expected to drive the industry growth in the coming years. Outdoor games such as soccer and American football have enhanced their appeal among consumers, which is expected to positively impact the demand for sports protective gears over the forecast period. Furthermore, an explosion in the global number of sports leagues and outlets is expected to provide growth opportunities for the market in the coming years. Sports clubs and associations are raising awareness among people by conducting events at various venues across the world, which will have a positive impact on the advancement of the sports protective equipment industry.

Notable government programs, such as The Sport for All initiative undertaken by the PCSFN, are expected to positively impact participation in physical activities, including indoor and outdoor games, which is expected to drive demand for protective equipment. The importance of head and headgear products has increased drastically in the past few years, on account of the increasing awareness regarding head injuries. The death of Australian cricketer Phillip Joel Hughes during a domestic match in 2014, due to a head injury sustained by a cricket ball, has created awareness among aspiring players to protect themselves. Leg protection gears are also witnessing high demand from sports enthusiasts, which is attributed to an increase in the number of participants in individual sports such as mixed martial arts, cycling, boxing, and skating. Protective gear manufacturers are using various raw materials such as Kevlar, innovative plastic, and carbon fiber to produce advanced protective gear, which is expected to eventually replace older products, owing to their lightweightness and durability.
