Global Sports Composites Market to Reach $3.7 Billion by 2026

Sports composites are advanced fibers widely used in sports equipment for enhancing strength, reducing weight and lowering costs. Representing a blend of multiple materials, fiber-reinforced composite materials help manufacturers to achieve design flexibility, make sports equipment lightweight, and ensure easy forming and processing characteristics. Rising physical activity for health reasons is one of the major drivers for composites demand in sports goods. Increasing adoption of durable materials for skis, hoverboards and rackets along with development of advanced products is bolstering the market expansion. The increasing reliance on continuous processing to manufacturer glass reinforced plastics (GRP) is likely to boost production of various sports equipment like snowboards, skis and longboards, creating new revenue streams for vendors.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Sports Composites estimated at US$2.7 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$3.7 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% over the analysis period. Carbon, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 5.6% CAGR and reach US$2.2 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Glass segment is readjusted to a revised 5% CAGR for the next 7-year period. The carbon fibers segment occupies major share due to extensive use of the material in bicycle frames, rackets and golf clubs. The segment’s growth is also favored by increasing adoption of carbon fibers as textiles and prepreg in sports applications.

Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 4.2% CAGR. The Asia-Pacific region represents a key market, driven by increasing sales of bicycles, golf sticks and high-performance products for several other applications. The market growth is bolstered by large-scale bicycle production in India and China. The regional market is benefitting from expansion of the manufacturing industry due to availability of cheap labor and easy access to raw materials. In addition, growing popularity of sports like badminton, golf and tennis is anticipated to further push the market expansion in the coming years. Growth in the European market is augmented by increasing popularity of hockey and tennis in countries such as Germany and France along with robust demand for bicycles across Norway, the Netherlands and Sweden.
