Global Knee Pad Market 2016-2020

About Knee Pad

During physical activities, such as sports, knees face the maximum strain and are prone to more wear and tear. Therefore, knee protection is crucial while performing rigorous physical tasks. Knee pads are one of the measures to keep the knees comfortable and prevent injuries, abrasions, and pain. Knee pads are available in a wide variety and can be adopted as per the task they are being worn for. Knee pads reduce the severity of injuries to knee joints caused by hitting, crawling, kneeling, and skidding, but without obstructing the movement of the wearer. The primary element of a knee pad is the cushioning provided to prevent injuries.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global knee pad market to grow at a CAGR of 4.55% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Knee Pad Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global knee pad market: Honeywell, Ergodyne, Nike, and McDavid.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alta Industries, AGPtek, ASICS, Akillis, Arc'teryx, Brass Knuckle, BLACKHAWK!, Custom LeatherCraft Manufacturing, COOLOMG, DamascusGear, Dakine, DEWALT, Fox, G-Form, Irwin Industrial Tools, KP Industries, Lift Safety, Mizuno, Mongoose, McGuire Nicholas, Portwest, Skan Technologies, Shock Doctor, Tommyco, Triple Eight, and True Flex Knee Pads.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors are now focusing on developing self-adjusting knee pads, which do not dislocate with change in activities, nor do they require frequent manual adjustments. In addition, the efficacy of these knee pads is not affected by factors such as sweat or movement.”

According to the report, rise in demand for neoprene knee pads to drive growth in the global knee pad market. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber composed of polymerized chloroprene, which possesses good chemical stability and sustains flexibility over a wide temperature range. In addition, neoprene is a breathable material that also enables easy evaporation of sweat, making it comfortable. In terms of physical composition, neoprene offers strength and durability.

Further, the report states that industrial end-users such as construction workers, carpenters, welders, flooring workers, and railroad workers require knee pads for long periods of kneeling activities. However, usage of knee pads for different tasks can change their positioning, leading to inefficiency of the worker as it would require continuous adjustments. Moreover, the clips and straps provided with the knee pads become loose after long use, which can also affect the positioning and therefore the effectiveness of knee pads.
