About the Report

Not only have outdoor sport activities such as motocross riding increased significantly in the past years, but also awareness regarding safe riding has grown substantially.

While new product launches by manufacturers are attracting more buyers towards a wide variety of motocross gear such as helmets, boots, and jerseys, to name a few, plenty of awareness campaigns and initiatives promoting safe motocross riding are further raising revenue in this industry.

As the trend is likely to persist, leading global players operating in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and other main regions are expected to witness impressive rise in requirements.

A latest study by Fact.MR offers an exhaustive overview of the global motocross gear market, along with the latest trends, demand-supply trajectories, and significant driving factors for the forecast period of 2021 to 2031. The report also details the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on this industry.

Historical & Future Outlook of Motocross Gear Sales

Growing requirement from motocross riders coupled with advancements in manufacturing infrastructure have significantly catered to the growth of the motocross gear market in the past years.

Despite getting battered with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the industry is recovering fast, creating new opportunities for market players. Surge in demand for various protective gear such as armored shorts, boots, helmets, and others has substantially raised the revenue of manufacturers during the last 5 years from 2016 to 2020.

With motocross riding gaining worldwide popularity, demand for various riding and protective gear is increasing fast.

Furthermore, increase in expenditure by governments and individuals on safety & precautionary measures for motocross riding and related sectors is further raising market value. According to Fact.MR, the global motocross gear market is forecast to expand at over 6% CAGR through 2031.

How are Rising Motocross Safety Measures Boosting Sales of Protective Gear?

With the rise in cases of accidents with high fatality rates, motocross riders are becoming more cautious. As a result, demand for helmets, boots, and other protective motocross gear is rising fast.

Additionally, initiatives taken by governments and various organizations to boost awareness regarding safe motocross racing are favoring manufacturers in this industry.

Recently, the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation of the Government of California launched the ‘Dirt Bike Safety Training’ initiative in order to spread awareness among dirt bikers and motocross riders.

This training also includes proper recommendations and instructions regarding the usage of protective motocross gear such as-

  • DOT-approved helmets
  • Gloves
  • Elbow/knee guards
  • Check protectors
  • Over-ankle boots
  • Goggles
  • Long pants

Such initiatives are working in favor of stakeholders operating in the motocross gear industry.

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.
