Increasing trend of adventure vacations, growing concerns over health issues such as obesity and hectic lifestyles coupled with rising disposable income to drive US alternative sports equipment market

According to TechSci Research report, United States Alternative Sports Equipment Market, By Type, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2012 - 2022, alternative sports equipment market in the US is projected to grow to over $ 13 billion by 2022. Growth in the market is anticipated on account of increasing population, rising disposable income, integration of technology in sports equipment coupled with increasing participation of women in sports across the country. Obesity rates have been steadily creeping up in the US, and in 2015, it was reported that over 17% of American youngsters between the ages 2 and 19 were obese. This has forced the American government into taking initiatives to counteract the problem by improving infrastructure and by encouraging citizens to participate in outdoor activities. Also, with steady increase not just in real wages but also in disposable incomes, where Americans earned over $ 38 thousand disposable income per capita in 2015, per capita spending towards buying sports equipment has increased over the last few years in the country.
