Ice hockey sticks for casual playing are made of wood or fiberglass composites, as they offer high durability and features at lower rates. Fiberglass composite ice hockey sticks are the most popular amongst kids who are practicing at the intermediate levels as they give the semblance of professional-level ice hockey sticks. Furthermore, the use of customized composite ice hockey sticks for national and international level competitions is highly prevalent.
Ice hockey is gaining traction amongst sports enthusiasts in developing nations due to the fast pace and intense levels of competition in the game. Many countries that are a part of the International Ice Hockey Federation but do not hold any rankings or positions are looking to strengthen their teams in order to improve their nation's standing in the sport, which is providing a major boost to the sport in their respective countries. This will lead to an increase in interest in the sport with many new players entering ice hockey, which will lead to a greater sale of ice hockey sticks thus helping the market achieve growth.
