Kicking Strap Market: Introduction
- A kicking strap is a piston system placed on a sailing boat that is utilized to exert downward force on the boom which helps the sailboat to maintain the optimum balance while sailing.
- A kicking strap may also act as a preventer in a situation where a sailboat lacks safety gear such as a boom preventer and also helps to control boom height during different wind conditions.
Rising Usage of Sailboats: A Key Driver
- In recent years, continuous growth in water tourism and recreational activities across the globe, along with increasing participation of users in water sports, adoption of waterways for transportation of goods and other sailing activities is likely to encourage the growth of the global kicking strap market. In addition, increasing awareness about the usage of kicking strap as a safety gear while sailing as it has multiple benefits and helps to improve overall performance is also encouraging the growth of the kicking strap market.
Economic Slowdown: A Key Restraint
- Several countries imposing lockdown due to impact of the COVID-19 pandemic situation has restrained the growth of the kicking strap market. Lack of supply of raw materials, decline in tourism activities, and imposition of trade barriers are major challenging factors in the growth of the kicking strap market. Key players in the market emphasizing on developing smart sailing gear may also hamper the growth of the kicking strap market. However, key manufacturers may also collaborate with commercial sailor services, boat & water sport clubs, and other professionals for the supply of kicking straps. This may be an opportunity for the growth of the kicking strap market.
