Global Golf Bags Market – Introduction
- Golf bags are used by golfers to carry golf equipment such as clubs, balls, gloves, and other accessories. Earlier, golfers did not have many options in golf bags, forcing them to heave around extremely heavy golf bags. Now, golf bag manufacturers are designing light-weight and water-proof bags for golfers. The different types of golf bags available in the market include cart bags, stand bags, staff bags, and carry bags.
- Golf courses have been closed since most people are practicing home isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and federal governments of various countries have imposed lockdown. This is projected to hamper the sale of golf bags in the year 2020. However, online sale of golf bags and equipment is projected to rise during the forecasted timeline due to the pandemic.
Increase in popularity of golf and number of participants in developing countries
- Rapid increase in popularity of golf as a sport in emerging economies such as South Korea, Japan, and China is projected to lead to rising usage of golf bags in the near future. Increasing participation of female golfers is also a positive sign for the expansion and growth of the golf bags market. Consumers are exploring a wide range of golf bags made of different materials such as leather available in the market. Increase in golf tourism is also anticipated to be a prominent reason that may surge the sale of golf bags during the forecast period.
Increase in online sale of golf bags
- Rising trend of selling golf bags and other exclusive range of golf equipment and accessories through online portals, especially company-owned websites and e-commerce websites as well as by regional or local online retailers across the world is anticipated to offer huge opportunities for producers, suppliers, and retailers of golf bags during the forecast period.
