Fitness Equipment Market Recorded a 48.57% Y-O-Y Growth Rate in 2021 | Driven by Increased Demand for Home Fitness Equipment

Anke Neustadt

 Home fitness equipment enables people to undertake workouts without stepping out of their homes. Consumers are learning to use advanced home fitness equipment via online videos and apps without the need to engage trainers, thus saving on costs. Furthermore, hectic work schedules and an increase in health issues have compelled people to undertake some form of exercise daily to remain healthy and prevent health-related issues, thus increasing the demand for fitness equipment will drive the market. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has contributed further to the demand for home fitness equipment. Since the second quarter (Q2) of 2020, home fitness equipment witnessed strong growth in demand globally. The rapid rise in the number of people diagnosed with the disease led governments in different countries globally to enforce lockdowns, which compelled people to stay indoors. In addition, most governments announced the shutting down of gyms, fitness centers, yoga studios, and recreation areas, which further played a major role in triggering the sales of home fitness equipment. 

However, the cost of home fitness equipment is high which may impede the market.  The premium treadmill products can be more expensive. This hinders the purchase of fitness equipment, especially in developing countries. Consumers find joining health clubs more economical than buying home fitness equipment. Also, some people living in developing countries are more skeptical about spending on health clubs and gym memberships. Furthermore, the presence of several local brands offering counterfeit products in the global fitness equipment market is leading to market fragmentation, thus resulting in issues such as the lack of price standardization, an uneven competitive scenario, and market share erosion. To gain a competitive advantage over international brands, these brands offer counterfeit products that are priced lower but lack quality and durability. However, these products are preferred by low-income consumers as they are affordable. As a result, original brands are unable to achieve optimal market penetration, which leads to an inventory backlog in their supply chain.

Furthermore, increasing health awareness among consumers is also driving the segment’s growth.
  • By Geography, the market is classified as North America, APAC, Europe, MEA, and South America. North America will have the largest share of the market. 38% of the market’s growth will originate from North America during the forecast period. The US is a key market for fitness equipment in North America. Market growth in this region will be faster than the growth of the market in Europe. The increased prevalence of age-related health conditions will facilitate the fitness equipment market growth in North America over the forecast period.
