Foosball, also known as table soccer or table football, is a soccer-based tabletop game. The rising popularity of indoor sports activities and increasing knowledge regarding the health benefits of the sport drive the global market growth. Foosball tables are available in various sizes, materials, and designs, making them ideal as décor for homes, bars, or cafes. Market players typically develop foosball tables with new features, such as adjustable leg levelers, telescopic rods, ergonomic handles, and drink holders, to gain a competitive advantage. At a macro level, an increasing number of product launches drives industry growth.
Foosball offers various physical and mental health benefits and is considered a suitable sport for individuals with arthritis and similar health conditions. The game demands players to use their wrists, knees, and shoulders, improving the body’s cardiovascular and blood flow. In this respect, the increasing number of arthritis patients worldwide triggers product demand. The sport is also known to enhance mental capabilities in children. Various foosball organizations across countries conduct foosball tournaments, favoring market expansion. For instance, in November 2018, the China Table Soccer Open and China Junior Table Soccer Championship were held in Zhangjiagang, China. Despite the rising popularity of foosball tournaments, the growing consumer inclination towards video or arcade games impedes market growth.
The COVID-19 crisis has been significantly affecting the global foosball market growth. The unprecedented pandemic resulted in the closure of sports bars, cafes, and malls, most notably in 2020, as several countries imposed lockdowns to curb the spread of the virus. This factor significantly decreased the demand for foosball tables worldwide as consumers typically prefer offline distribution channels to purchase foosball tables. Moreover, supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19 restrictions have also hampered manufacturing operations worldwide. However, the novel pandemic also encouraged numerous individuals to play foosball from the comfort of their homes, increasing product sales through online channels across households worldwide.
The report will cover the following key insights:
Based on material, the global market is segmented into wood, metal, and plastic. The wood segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022. Wooden foosball tables have higher demand than other material types as they offer better stability compared to their metal- and plastic-based counterparts. However, metal-based foosball tables will likely witness significant demand in the coming years, given the increasing need for durable and easily available products worldwide.
Analysis by Application
Based on the application, the global market is segmented into household and commercial. The commercial segment will likely hold a dominant market share over the forecast period due to the rising demand for foosball tables at commercial facilities such as cafes, bars, and malls. The foosball table can also be used in commercial spaces for decorative purposes.
Based on sales channel, the market is segregated into online and offline. The offline segment held the larger market share in 2022, backed by the reopening of physical retail stores and a significant increase in offline establishments worldwide. However, the online channel will likely witness the fastest growth throughout the forecast timeframe, given the increasing internet penetration and rising consumer inclination towards online shopping. In addition, easy product availability through e-commerce websites and online stores such as Amazon.com and RS Barcelona contribute significantly to the segmental growth.
