Skiing equipment is commonly used by the winter sports professionals and hikers as they can smoothly slide on the ice surface with the help of such products. Skiing boards are available in different shapes and sizes based on the type of skiing activities such as jumping, alpine skiing, telemark skiing, Nordic skiing, freestyle skiing, etc. Nowadays, skiing products such as tubes, bikes, sleds, snowmobiles, etc. other than traditional skiing items are increasingly becoming popular among the people. 

Manufacturers are keenly focusing on developing skiing boards and poles based on the type of sport personal such as beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Additionally, they are integrating various technologies in the design of the snowboards and helmets so that users can perform skiing activities efficiently. For instance, in January 2019, RideOn Ltd., an Israel based travel, tourism & leisure product’s company launched an AR technology-based skiing helmet where users can chat with their friends and share their current location while skiing activity.

The growing number of facilities related to ice sports is largely providing ease in the growth of the skiing businesses and thereby the demand for skiing equipment among tourists and winter sports athletes. The increasing number of winter sports participants across the globe is prominently driving the growth of the market. According to the data presented by the U.S. SKI and SNOWBOARD Organisation, in 2018, the number of participants in the NASTAR Batch system of the various ice sports events such as aspen skiing, ski racing, and others increased by 26% compared to that of the last two years.

Additionally, rising marketing and promotional campaigns related to ice skiing and surfing activities by the various ice resorts is likely to provide ease in the consumer demand for such products. Therefore, increasing outdoor & recreational activity trends of the global population are likely to support market growth.

However, rising incidences of skiing & surfing accidents are anticipated to restrain the growth of the market. Additionally, uncertain COVID-19 lockdown restrictions have temporarily hampered the consumer demand for the various travel & tourism activities which thereby has halted the market growth.
