Pickleball Equipment Market Snapshot

The global Pickleball Equipment Market garnered a market value of US$ 65.64 Billion in 2022 and is expected to accumulate a market value of US$ 155.4 Billion by registering a CAGR of 9% in the forecast period 2023-2033. The growth of the market can be attributed to an increasing global population, rapid urbanization, and growing disposable income levels. The market registered a CAGR of 5% in the historical period of 2018–2022.

The global pickleball equipment market is on track to witness mounting growth over the coming years, as a result of increasing popularity of pickleball in Europe and the emergence of new market opportunities in the Asia Pacific region.

The pickleball equipment market is more consolidated in Europe and North America due to the high number of players in these regions. This market is primarily driven by trends in the sports industry, increasing number of pickleball clubs, and rising number of professional players.

However, the media does not play any role with respect to pickleball games and tournaments. This has resulted in limited popularity of pickleball in Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. Most individuals are seen to be indulging in pickleball as a recreational hobby or a modern sport for fitness. Increasing adoption of digital platforms for ensuring global presence and regional availability has provided a boost to the expansion of the pickleball equipment market size.

Furthermore, IFP (International Federation of Pickleball) aims at pushing the pickleball sport in the Olympics. This could prove to be an immensely advantageous factor for the growth of the sport, as the Olympics is a world-renowned sports event. These aforementioned factors would facilitate the growth opportunity for the pickleball equipment market, which is projected to rise at a CAGR of 9% in terms of value over the forecast period 2023-2033.

Sales Analysis of Pickleball Equipment (2018-2022) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2023-2033)

According to Fact.MR, the Pickleball Equipment market registered a CAGR of 5% in the historical period 2018-2022. The spread of coronavirus has crippled the entire world. Nearly all countries have imposed lockdowns and strict social distancing measures. This has resulted in the disruption of supply chains across geographies. These factors have significantly impacted the demand for pickleball equipment, at least in the short term.

However, in the long term, the impact on the pickleball equipment market is expected to be significantly low. The market is expected to continue its upward trajectory over the coming years. Thus, the market for Pickleball Equipment is expected to register a CAGR of 9% in the forecast period 2023-2033.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers of Pickleball Equipment Market?

Corporate Sponsorships to Lead to Immense Growth

Competitive paddles used in pickleball are constructed from a high-tech composite. An official pickleball is made of plastic and is between .78 to .935 ounces and 2.874 to 2.972 inches in diameter. There are no color restrictions other than the ball must be a single, consistent color. USA Pickleball has tested and approved several outdoor and indoor balls for official tournament play.

Corporate sponsorships in pickleball leagues are causing a large amount of capital inflow, which is making pickleball a prominent sport. This is also causing a large number of sports equipment companies such as Pickleball Inc. and Asics Corporation to make products for pickleball. Sponsorships for pickleball sports are offering investors several marketing opportunities to increase promotion and reach a broader audience.

For instance, in July 2020, the French Tennis Federation (Tennis Tournament Organizers) and HEAD announced a renewed partnership agreement until 2020. The company is the official ball supplier and stringing partner of Rolex Paris Masters. It provides stringing services for players and supplies HEAD tour balls for the tournament.

Furthermore, as per studies, Pickleball grew in 2021 to 4.8 million players in the US, according to the 2022 Sports & Fitness Industry Association (SFIA) Single Sport Report on Pickleball. SFIA is the premier trade association for top brands, manufacturers, retailers and marketers in the American sporting goods and fitness industry.

  • USA Pickleball approved the first-ever open throat design of a pickleball paddle in May, 2021. KitchenPro President and Co-founder, Gregg Brents, proudly introduced this new, revolutionary design into competition in June, 2021.

KitchenPro officially launched its two models, the BRUTALE FG (Fiberglass face) and BRUTALE CF (Carbon fiber face) on January 18th in Boca Raton, FL at the Association of Pickleball Professionals (APP) Boca Raton Masters Pickleball Tournament. KitchenPro's new patent pending design includes the first tubular carbon fiber frame with an open throat below the playing surface of the paddle, similar to the current tennis racquet design. The primary advantage of this design is to enhance the structural integrity and reliability of paddles which are inherently weak in the neck and handle areas. The open throat also provides a quicker swing speed due to slightly less wind resistance, thus resulting in more power.
