The overall sales of baseball gloves remain sluggish due to low popularity of the game as compared to other sports such as basketball, soccer or lawn tennis. Baseball glove is a niche sporting gear predominantly used by baseball players.
Use of baseball gloves basically started in 1870s when baseball players like Douglas L. Allison decided to use protective gloves during games. The gloves proved quite useful for players and gradually involved into baseball gear. Baseballs gloves are generally made of leather and can last for several years.
Longevity of baseball gloves also impact their purchasing cycle. The conventional utility and design of baseball gloves did not change much over the past few decades.
Moreover, limited scope of any radical transformation in product designs, coupled with lack of awareness among buyers about new products that are manufactured using alternative raw materials, is also playing a role in undermining any value growth in demand for baseball gloves. The latest report published by Fact.MR projects that the global baseball gloves market will register a miniscule CAGR of 2.3% during 2017 to 2022.
