Global Rugby Helmet Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Rugby Helmet is a type of helmet that is specifically designed for the sport of rugby. Rugby helmets are typically made from durable materials such as plastic or polycarbonate and they typically feature a number of protective features such as a face mask, ear guards, and padding. Rugby helmets are important because they can help protect players from injuries to the head or face.

Lightweight Type:

Rugby is a game played by two teams of 15 players, commonly known as the forwards and backs. The object of the game is to score points by running with the ball over the opposition's goal line. Players are made up of different materials such as glass fiber, carbon fiber or aramid fibers which helps in reducing injury risk during collisions.

The lightweight type reduces injury risks during matches.

Genral Type:

Genral Type is a new product category in the sports equipment industry. It includes products such as head protection, mouth guards, neck protectors and ear protection. General type of helmets are designed to offer basic head safety to the players during matches or training sessions by preventing severe brain injuries. They have been gaining increasing acceptance among rugby players due to their lightweight features that reduce the impact of injuries caused by heavy tackles.

Application Insights:

The child application segment led the global rugby helmet market in 2017. This can be attributed to increasing participation rates among children and rising number of schools that have rugby programs. Furthermore, initiatives taken by the governments of various countries to promote Rugby Union as a sport among school students will also boost the segment growth over the forecast period. For instance, in 2016 New Zealand launched a new initiative - ¢â‚¬Å“Get Into Rugby¢â‚¬ which is aimed at getting more kids involved in playing rugby through schools and clubs by offering free uniforms and equipment for both boys and girls starting from age 5. Such initiatives are expected to drive product demand globally over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the second-largest regional market in 2017. The growth of this region can be attributed to the presence of a large number of rugby playing nations, such as U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Furthermore, North America is home to several key players including Schuberth GmbH; POC helmets; and Riddell Inc.; thus making it one of the most competitive markets in terms of product offerings across all regions.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing popularity and awareness regarding concussion prevention among sportspersons from various sports including rugby union and rugby league from countries like China, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa etc., which will drive demand for GRF Rugby Helmet in Asia Pacific region over next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing popularity of rugby as a sport
  • Rising awareness about the importance of safety gear in contact sports
  • Growing demand from emerging markets
  • Technological advancements in rugby helmet design and construction
  • rising disposable income among consumers
