Global Smart Sports Equipment Market to Surge Past Valuation of US$ 1.2 Bn

The global smart sports equipment market is projected to register a healthy growth in terms of valuation during the forecast period (2017 to 2022), according to a new market study by XploreMR. The growth of the market is majorly attributed to surging demand for data-driven analysis in sporting activities, which is positively influencing the sales of smart sport equipment. Increased emphasis on data in making decisions related to sports has been a crucial factor in driving the need and demand for smart sports equipment.

Analyzed data regarding sports and players aids teams and leagues to fund accordingly and also bestows higher chances to win tournaments. From a broader perspective, though, the adoption of smart sports equipment is majorly concentrated among consumers who use the smart tools to gauge their healthy lifestyle and exercising regime on a daily basis, unlike corporations that use them for competitive tracking.

Relatively new to the sporting space, but smart products available include smart basketball, smart footballs, smart rackets, smart golf stick, smart helmet, and others, which are gaining remarkable traction. On the back of these factors, the global smart sports equipment market is projected to surge past valuation of US$ 1.2 Bn by the end of 2022.

Increased Emphasis on Competitive Tracking Promises Healthy Growth

Over the years, the reliance on data to make informed decisions has increased significantly across numerous sectors. Although relatively late compared to other sectors, data-driven business decision trends have penetrated into the sports industry in the early 2000s. As sport managements highly focus on observing player abilities and statistics, smart sports equipment are aiding in offering precise data that would help in making better decisions. In addition to creating valuable data, smart sports equipment such as smart helmets, smart sports wearables, and others are increasing safety by actively tracking heart rate and protecting athletes from injuries.

Furthermore, adoption of IOT in various sports equipment such as watersports, tennis, basketball, football, among others is enabling users to get new and advanced features, which are unavailable with the traditional sport equipment. For instance, smart balls allow users to detect and track analytics regarding the flight path, spin, and speed of the ball and provide this information to users via smartphones.  This is expected to further the demand for smart sports equipment among regular consumers in the years to come.

Smart Baseball Bats and Smart Golf Sticks Remain Most Sought-after

Based on the different types of products available, smart baseball bats and smart golf sticks are cumulatively forecasted to account for nearly 40% of global market revenue. The dominance of these two segments can be attributed to increasing consumer spending - both general consumers and sports teams - to gain competitive edge in the two sporting events, and this is expected to play a crucial role in driving the growth of the overall market. Furthermore, the demand for sensor-equipped sporting equipment in baseball and golf is also associated with the high reward money for sporting events, and enhanced performance of participants through data-driven performance analysis.
