Tennis Racquet Market Insights

The tennis racquet market is anticipated to reach a valuation of over US$ 700 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period 2020-2030.

The tennis racquet market has seen a historical CAGR of nearly 1% during the period (2015-2019), owing to minimal growth in mature economies such as North America and Europe, and is to create a valuation of US$ 214 million by 2030.

Increased participation has been observed among millennials and Gen Z. For many years, the discretionary spending of millennials and Gen Z has been low, and, as such, the spending of these new participants in recreational activities has also been low.

As these generations are entering maturity and subsequently experiencing increase in discretionary income, spending on participation in multiple activities has increased. This has been highly beneficial for the growth of the tennis industry and demand for tennis equipment, and is expected to aid the expansion of the tennis racquet market size over the coming years.
