This market research study recognizes vendors such as Adidas, New Balance, Performance Sports Group, and Sher-Wood as the leading players in the global ice hockey equipment market. This report also presents segmentations based on products (protective gear, ice skates, sticks, and others), retail format (specialty and sports shops, department and discount stores, online retail, and others) and geography (Europe, North America, and ROW).

Outlook of the global ice hockey equipment market

The market analyst at Technavio predicts that the global ice hockey equipment market will grow progressively and post a CAGR of around 4% by 2020. One of the factors contributing to the growth of the market is the changing rules of protective goalie gear. The NHL recently changed the length of a goalie's leg pads; making them shorter, so they do not obstruct a significant part of the five-hole between the legs. In the future, goalies will be required to wear equipment like chest guards, catch gloves, and blockers that are better suited to their body size. Such changes in the rule will require goalies to buy gear matching their body sizes rather than using the standard oversized equipment.

In the recent times, many vendors have been innovating in helmets to protect players from concussions.  As a result, vendors such as Adidas and Performance Sports Group have started launching new helmets that are made of materials, which are flexible and have fluid filled bladders to protect the player’s head from an injury during a game. The ability of these helmets to protect players from concussions and ensure safety of the players from serious head injuries will led to its increased adoption during the forecast period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is competitive and is dominated by the well-established players. The vendors are exploring new opportunities in emerging markets of Europe, Asia, and other such regions across the globe. Additionally, some vendors are also investing in different marketing strategies to increase their share in the market. Sponsoring the top players and clubs who play in NHL is a key strategy that is adopted by several sellers to increase their brand awareness and popularity among targeted audiences. The market analyst predicts competition among vendors to be high during the next four years.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Adidas
  • New Balance
  • Performance Sports Group
  • Sher-Wood
  • Key

Other prominent vendors in the market are American Athletic Shoe, Graf, Franklin Sports, and Tour Hockey.

Segmentation based on geography and analysis of the ice hockey equipment market

  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

Market analysts predict that North America will be the largest contributor to the market by posting a CAGR of approximately 4% by 2020. The increasing number of ice hockey players in this region coupled with the presence of a few popular clubs and a huge fan base will lead to the growth of this market in North America.
