Riders are riding faster and getting bolder day by day. Hence, safety equipment need to be updated as per the requirement and changing time. Earlier, helmets were primarily used by extreme skiers and racers. They were used only on slopes. However, later, the use of helmets was made compulsory. Earlier, bulky black helmets were used by riders, which are outdated at present. Currently, new stylish helmets that can match with the rider’s personal style and offer sufficient safety are employed. As snow helmets are used while playing snow games, they need to be warm and comfortable and not bulky or heavy. Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) helmets are manufactured by employing various manufacturing methods that impart added safety to the product. Snow helmets manufactured currently are lighter in weight, stronger, and more comfortable to wear. Furthermore, use of new materials such as aramid and carbon fiber makes helmets stronger, without compromising on weight. These kinds of helmets offer high protection from multiple impacts. Various elements considered while manufacturing a snow helmet include construction, fitting system, ventilation, technical specifications, sizing, safety certifications, look, compatibility with accessories, and pricing.
The snow helmets market is fueled by factors such as rise in demand for snow sports or activities by population, and various health benefits offered by snow games. Demand for snow helmets is anticipated to increase in the near future, due to various other factors such as growing inclination toward snow games in developing countries and increasing number of adventurous activities in snow. Use of snow helmets becomes essential, as there are chances of accidents and falls while playing snow games. The above-mentioned factors are expected to contribute to the snow helmets market during the forecast period. On the other hand, dissimilarities in end-user attitude and behavior regarding snow games across various regions such as North America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa is likely to hinder the snow helmets market in the next few years. Moreover, factors such as critical weather conditions and risk of damage associated with snow games are projected to hamper the snow helmets market during the forecast period.
