Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: EDEA, Jackson Ultima, K2 Sports, Riedell Shoes, Risport Skates, Roller Derby, and SP-Teri

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “With the increasing worldwide concern about preserving the environment, sporting goods manufacturers are also adopting ways to make their products eco-friendly. As such, figure skating equipment manufacturers have also started adopting eco-friendly practices and production methods. The advent of eco-friendly ice and figure skating rinks has been a step toward becoming more responsible in terms of environment preservation for these manufacturers. Right from skating rinks that use recycled water to those rinks that do not use water at all, the market has been taking successive steps at creating greener products.”

According to the report, even though figure skating is quite similar to ice skating, there are a number of factors that differentiate the two. Figure skating, also known as synchronized skating, is a multifaceted sport, and involves a combination of speed, movement, music, and choreography, which together help in increasing its popularity among the global population. Figure skating gained rapid popularity since its advent in the 1990s. The judging system for figure skating tournaments is the same as for other skating tournaments, with the routine being characterized by teamwork, speed, intricate formation, and step sequences. There is also no age restriction for figure skating, which creates a universal appeal for the sport.

Further, the report states that not all countries have the required infrastructure to support the growth of all types of outdoor sports, and typically, consumers in a particular country tend to pursue the sport that is most popular in that country. This inclination toward specific sports limits the market for other sports in any country. On similar notes, the popularity of figure skating is limited mostly to western markets, and APAC countries tend to lag in terms of infrastructure, popularity, and adoption of figure skating. Additionally, ice skating rinks tend to be large and expensive investments, with little or no guarantee of sufficient windfall.
