Market Dynamics 

Recent trends influencing the market

The rising trend of freeride skiing is one of the major trends influencing the ski gear and equipment market growth. Freeride skiing encompasses a style of snowboarding or skiing conducted on natural, ungroomed terrain without predetermined courses, objectives, or regulations. The advancement of this sport is being propelled by a variety of tournaments, particularly in Europe and North America, contributing to the focal point of market growth. The sport’s popularity is linked to heightened public awareness of fitness regimens, a notable uptick in consumer expenditure, the prevalence of numerous snowboarding destinations in North America and Europe, and substantial growth in tourism activities. Notably, the Freeride World Tour, held on January 22, 2022, in Spain, featured elite free riders and snowboarders engaging in five events. Safety in freeride skiing necessitates appropriate equipment, with specific requirements varying according to prevailing conditions. Such factors fuel the market growth during the forecast period.

Major challenges hindering the market growth

The increasing availability of counterfeit products is a major challenge hindering the ski gear and equipment market growth. E-commerce platforms have become a platform for the sale of counterfeit sports equipment, imitating authentic originals. These replicas are offered by unregistered vendors, causing complications for both established manufacturers and potential buyers. The prevalence of counterfeit ski equipment, visually similar to the genuine articles, poses a challenge as distinctions are primarily based on quality and durability. The increasing distribution of such counterfeit items could lead consumers to struggle to distinguish between genuine and fake products. Consequently, the surge in counterfeit product availability is anticipated to impede market growth and negatively impact the reputation of legitimate ski equipment manufacturers during the forecast period.
