Market Dynamics

Fitness equipment is widely used for physical fitness, weight management, and improving body stamina & muscular strength. The commonly used fitness equipment are treadmills, stationary bicycles, stair climbers, and weightlifting machines. Rise in awareness regarding health & fitness, increase in obese population, government initiatives to promote healthy lifestyle, and increase in youth population are the major factors that drive the growth of the global fitness equipment market size.

Rise in fitness and wellness trends at the working place of employees is propelling the fitness equipment market demand across the world. A corporate wellness program is a structured initiative established by a company to promote and facilitate employee physical activity and general well-being. By integrating physical activity into the workplace environment, these programs make it convenient for employees to participate in gym sessions, exercise classes, or other wellness activities. Highlighting the fact that approximately 90% of large U.S. companies have adopted workplace wellness programs, which underscores the growing awareness and emphasis on employee health in the corporate world. The primary goal of corporate fitness programs is to prevent the harmful effects of sedentary work habits and cultivate a healthier, more active workforce. Typically, these programs offer access to fitness facilities, exercise classes, and wellness activities focused on health and fitness. Through these initiatives, corporate fitness programs foster a culture of well-being within the organization that leads to an increased demand for fitness equipment in workplace gyms and wellness facilities, driving growth in the commercial fitness equipment segment.

In 2020, the number of people aged 60 or older will pass the one billion marks, which is one in every seven people. By 2045, approximately one generation later, this number is expected to reach one in every five people. As this demographic shift unfolds, many industries should embrace the concept of "active aging" to meet the needs of this aging population. Perhaps the most common goal among seniors of all backgrounds, cultures, interests, and walks of life, is to remain healthy and independent right up to the time of death. This means that senior living communities offering access to experienced trainers and wellness professionals, age-friendly fitness equipment, and an active aging culture, is naturally going to be attractive to many seniors.

Today’s seniors are also embracing technology to support their health goals. However, there is a strong social element to how they want to utilize that technology in fitness equipment. Even though new fitness trackers, online programs and mobile apps pop up every day, most of today’s seniors prefer brick and mortar wellness facilities staffed with professionals and fitness equipment designed for aging population, such as low-impact cardio machines and balance training equipment, which is experiencing increased demand as a result.

Families and parents are continuing to become more conscious of health, wellness, and fitness, especially with the growing concern over childhood obesity. Obesity prevalence was 12.7% among 2- to 5-year-olds, 20.7% among 6- to 11-year-olds, and 22.2% among 12- to 19- year-olds. Childhood obesity is also more common among certain populations. According to The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition, children aged 6 to 17 years are recommended to perform 60 minutes or more of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity daily, but the CDC states that less than a quarter of children in that age range meet that recommendation. Thus, there will be an increase in gym memberships from consumers 17 years and younger who will invest more in fitness classes and private training sessions.

Analyst Review

To cater to the changing trends for physical activity and exercises across the globe, the fitness equipment industry is continuously developing innovative exercise products for both home use and commercial gym environments. The aim is to maximize fitness results while enhancing overall workout experience. For instance, earlier, fitness equipment had a standard user interface; however, these user interfaces are now evolving to include more sophisticated smartphone-like features. In addition, to allow users to customize and monitor individual workouts, fitness machines provide advanced entertainment functionality, such as the ability to watch live TV, listen to music, and access the internet during workout.

Major manufacturers of fitness equipment are exploring options to improve overall user satisfaction and machine equipment effectiveness (OEE) by developing a next-generation fitness machine product line that has reduced machine down time and improved user engagement. In addition, they are seeking a reliable and durable touch solution, which can withstand rigors of a typical commercial gym environment, while maintaining consistent optical clarity of the LCD and touch interface. To meet this requirement, OEMs have selected microtech system based on 3M Surface Capacitive Technology (3M SCT).

This robust touch interface can withstand the rigors of commercial environment and offers easy cleaning after use. Along with developing innovative products, OEMs have adopted acquisition, partnership, and expansion as their key growth strategies to access other geographies, extend product lines, and garner maximum market share.
