What are the Key Challenges Faced by Market Players?

While riding and protective gear is gaining rapid popularity among motocross riders, this often involves costly manufacturing and maintenance processes. Furthermore, choosing the correct riding and protective gear is quiet a task in order to obtain optimum comfort and safety level during riding. For instance-

  • Half-helmets or skullcaps provide minimum safety, as they only cover the top of the head
  • Open face helmets or three quarter helmets don’t give enough protection to the front of the face or eyes

Additionally, the motocross sports industry suffered a setback due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in 2020.

As a result, demand for motocross gear declined significantly. Also, non-operational manufacturing hubs and financial constraints halted manufacturing processes.

However, with the motocross sports industry getting back on track and manufacturers gaining momentum, the motocross gear industry will experience impressive expansion over the coming years.
