How is Celebrity Endorsement Providing Tailwinds to Personal Exercise Mats Sales?
The often mundane and arduous nature of fitness regimes has prompted large-scale celebrity endorsement of several exercises, including yoga, aerobics and stretching across multiple regions. This fitness marketing trend has swiftly attracted the attention of millennials.
Key celebrity figures such as singers, actors, actresses and sportspersons are relying on social media to either live stream their fitness sessions, or post pre-recorded videos on their Facebook, Instagram or other social media platforms. Consequently, end users are investing more time in maintaining their fitness routines, leading to an upsurge in personal exercise mats demand.
How is Raw Material Price Volatility Restraining Growth Prospects?
Widespread uncertainties in the global market, particularly with respect to plastic, is leading to immense fluctuations in their prices. Since plastics such as polyvinyl chloride, are amongst the primary raw materials for manufacturing personal exercise mats, there will be substantial challenges associated with their production.
This uncertainty is largely an outcome of widespread changes in such broader end-use industries such as the oil & gas sector, one of the primary consumers of high-grade plastics. Consistent increases in the cost price of raw materials makes it difficult to source them, creating bottlenecks in the manufacturing process.
