Growing Popularity of Water Sports Influences Demand for Rowing Oars

The trend of rowing as one of the leisurely activities of traveling by boat, or the recreational use of a boat whether powerboats, sailboats, or man-powered vessels, such as rowing and paddle boats has increased the consumer focus toward rowing oars. Manufacturers have shifted their focus on the innovations in oars for rowing, as well as sports activities, such as fishing or water-skiing. Moreover, with the growing popularity of water sports such as rowing, kayaking, canoeing, oars have their very own features and are mostly selected through a long time experience. Oars used in competitive rowing can be long (8-10 Ft to 10.5-11 Ft) poles. Most efficient oars are designed with a stronger grip. While oars are used to propel the boat in rowing, they can differ with the type and size of boats.

The present rowing oars market holds hundreds of different variations of oars in terms of material and manufacturer specifications. Carbon fiber blades are most common in modern-day rowing. Classic oars were made out of wood. Since the use of such artificial materials in 1975, the weight of an oar has come down vastly in the case of sculls. While rowing is the most popular in competing boats, fine boats (racing shells) and oars are an early part of the production supported by metal, fiberglass, aluminum, or carbon fiber frames attached to the side of the boat called riggers for extra leverage. Furthermore, in the blade segment, the cleaver blade holds the most shares as compared to others. Cleaver blades are asymmetrical, and slightly rectangular that looks like a meat cleaver. The growing availability and choices of products are increasing the demand for the global rowing oars market.

Restricted Outdoor Activities Hamper Growth Rate of Rowing Oars Market

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in the closure of almost all the industries, tourist places, and leisure activities. Many people were, therefore, unable to actively engage in their regular individual or group sporting or physical activities outside of their homes. With strict regulations in place worldwide, people were asked to remain at home resulting in less physical activities, longer screen time due to work from home, erratic sleep patterns as well as inadequate diets, resulting in weight gain and loss of physical fitness. Thus, the impact on sporting and outdoor activities has hindered the global rowing oars market, and is anticipated to have a longer effect as people will have to mentally be prepared to go back to routine and more for outdoor activities. Furthermore, restrictions on global trade and manufacturing activities have limited manufacturers to work with available raw materials, and many production houses witnessed a closure.

As the spread is being contained in major regions and vaccination drives have increased their pace, markets in these countries are restoring to normal. However, many regions might need more time to vaccinate their citizens. Thus, there are still restrictions against outdoor sporting and water sporting activities, halting the demand for the global rowing oars market. Many businesses are investing in research and development to analyze the post-pandemic market scenarios and design strategic plans accordingly. With markets opening in the developed regions such as the U.S., manufacturers are increasing their production to flatten the demand curve and to fulfil the upcoming demand from people wanting to engage in rowing activities. The post-pandemic period will witness a surge in the demand for rowing oars, as sporting and leisure activities will restore and athletes may want to fill the gap in the practice.
