Fishing Lure Market to Reach US$ 3.3 Bn by 2030; Decline in Sales in Near Term Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, Though Long-term Outlook Remains Positive


by Team Fact.MR

The spread of COVID-19 is resulting in declining sales as most anglers are staying indoors. To overcome this situation, manufacturers are utilizing digital technologies and engaging customers via online portals. As such, the outbreak of this pandemic has shifted consumer focus to e-Commerce platforms. This, in turn, will strengthen demand for fishing lures over the forecast period.

There has been significant growth in the number of anglers across the world, which has consequently resulted in increased demand for fishing equipment and gear, including fishing lures. This trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast period of 2020 to 2030, and will further increase demand for fishing lures. Further, fishing is seen as one of the growing outdoor recreation activities - NMMA also announced that the recreational boating industry contributes an estimated US$ 170.3 billion in economic activity to the U.S. economy. This is anticipated to create ample opportunities for players operating in the fishing lure market, which is expected to expand at a value CAGR of around 5% over the next ten years.

“Large-scale closure of OEM plants in USA and Europe will have short-term implications on the growth of the fishing lure market.
