This industry research report identifies Cougar, King Line, POWERSLIDE, ROCES, and Rollerblade as the key vendors in the global ice skating equipment market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product type (ice skates and ice skating accessories), by retail format (sporting goods retailers, hypermarkets, supermarkets, and department stores, online retail, and others), and by geography (Europe, North America, and ROW).

Ice skating equipment market forecast

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global ice skating equipment market will grow steadily during the next four years and post an impressive revenue of almost USD 399 million in 2020. This market research analysis identifies the increased adoption of waterless ice skating rinks as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Waterless or synthetic ice skating rinks use a solid polymer material for skating and do not require ice. This eliminates the need for maintaining a cold temperature using refrigeration equipment, which reduces operational costs.

Ice skating equipment market volume based on geography

Several countries across the globe including the US, Canada, Japan, and countries in the Scandinavian regions have already built rinks using synthetic ice skating surfaces. Additionally, various places such as Hyderabad in India, Disneyland in Paris, and Toki no Sumika in Japan have also built eco-friendly skating rinks. This, in turn, will drive the demand for ice skating equipment from across the globe, consequently driving the growth of the ice skating gear market.

This market research and analysis estimates that in terms of geographical regions, North America will be the major revenue contributor to the market throughout the next four years. Ice skating forms a major part of this region's recreational activities, which is one of the major factors for the market’s growth in this region. 

Ice skating equipment market vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a considerable number of players and is fragmented. The well-established international players such as Cougar, King Line, Rollerblade, ROCES, and POWERSLIDE account for the major shares and dominate the market. The intense competition among the market players and the constantly changing preference of customers make it difficult for new players to enter the market. To gain a competitive edge, ice skating equipment manufacturers have the need to develop and introduce advanced products to cater to the constantly changing customer preferences.
