The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with the product witnessing a positive demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market will exhibit a stellar growth of 25.1% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The market is projected to grow from USD 10.73 billion in 2021 to USD 14.74 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 4.6% in the 2021-2028 period. The sudden fall in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The product has developed an escalating market enlargement as people are becoming progressively aware of the health benefits that it is able to deliver. Its capability to strengthen the specific part of the body, boost stamina & energy, and assist users in moving at their own pace has helped to draw more consumers. The increasing number of people involved in physical activities such as biking, jogging, swimming, and others has helped to surge the demand as it helps in building stamina at the comfort of their homes, for instance, according to the Global Wellness Institute. Org data, in 2018, the number of people involved in physical activities in North America was 57.8 percent, and Europe was 46.6 percent.

COVID-19 Pandemic to Result in the Rising Demand for Home Fitness Equipment

The eruption of the coronavirus has resulted in a spike in the number of people working out from their homes to avoid getting infected, which, in turn, would have a positive influence on the market growth. For instance, the data issued by the Business Wire in May 2020 declared that fitness equipment sales witnessed a growth of 170 percent, which is driven by the outbreak of the COVID-19. In addition, the pandemic has also propelled non-fitness enthusiasts to give more importance to the maintenance of their health and fitness, which thus helps to generate traction.

 Growing Shift towards Innovative Products is a Prominent Trend

The rising production of smart treadmills designed to help monitor heart rate, jog and run speed, distance covered, and also comes in a compact foldable form for easy mobility is acting as an opportunity for the market growth. For instance, the Peloton Tread treadmill has the capability to monitor heart rate, work out timing, distance covered, calories burned, and others. This product also comes with life and fitness demand classes. In addition, the manufacturing of smart dumbbells, which has built-in sensors to help monitor the movement of the arm and also has the ability to connect with smart electronic devices, is likely to fuel the demand. For instance, Bowflex SmartTech 560 dumbbell has the capability to be connected with smart devices through Bluetooth, and its sensors can detect arm movement.


Rising Health Complications to Fuel the Demand for Products

The increasing number of people with obesity surges the need for the product as it acts as a crucial tool in reducing their weight at their own pace. For instance, as per the data published by the State of Child Obesity.Org in September 2020, in the United States, adult obesity rates now surpass 35% in 12 states, 25% in 48 states, and 30% in 35 states. In addition, the rising awareness of the lack of physical activity has led to various health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and others, which, in turn, has assisted in upsurging their demand. For instance, the data issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in September 2019 states that the lack of physical activity contributes to heart disease, several cancers, and type 2 diabetes. Besides, not enough physical activity is also associated with USD 117 billion healthcare costs on a yearly basis. 

Increasing Inclination towards Digital Technology to Aid Market Growth

The increasing popularity of the usage of fitness applications in smart devices for enhancing and maintaining personal fitness routines has played a significant role in the market growth. For instance, the World Economic Forum data released in September 2020 declares that fitness apps witnessed a rise of 50 percent usage in the first half of 2020. In addition, the rising popularity of taking online fitness sessions has resulted in fostering the need for the product. For instance, the New Indian Express data published in April 2020 mentions that the Jawaharlal Nehru University of New Delhi, India, started its online fitness class for students to assist in maintaining their health and well-being.


High Cost of the Product to Hamper Market Growth

Some fitness equipment available at a high cost, especially middle and low-income earners of developing and under-developed countries, is acting as a restraining factor for the market growth. For instance, according to Fitness Superstore, the price of Life Fitness F1 Smart Folding Treadmill is worth USD 3,499. In addition, the increasing establishment of commercial gymnasiums across the globe led to decreasing expenses made on home fitness equipment. It has a negative impact on market growth. For instance, according to the 2018 data of the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association, the United States has over 39,570 gyms with more than 6 billion visits.
