Protective Sports Equipment Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Protective Sports Equipment Manufacturing

The Protective Sports Equipment Manufacturing industry has experienced modest growth over the five years to 2018. Heightened competition from imports, which are expected to account for nearly two-thirds of domestic demand in 2018, limited postrecessionary recovery for this industry. A largely appreciating US dollar against other major currencies during the bulk of the five-year period has hampered the industry's export opportunities. Improved disposable income over the five years to 2018 and rising sports participation are expected to bolster growth. As positive macroeconomic conditions continue to build momentum, disposable income growth is expected to remain steady over the five years to 2023, bolstering industry revenue.

This industry manufactures protective sports equipment such as helmets, pads, gloves and shin guards. Recreational and professional athletes purchase industry products to protect themselves from injury.

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