The sale of home gym equipment via offline modes has remained higher than online sales as consumers prefer offline channels to shop for fitness devices due to the lack of awareness about the types of equipment and logistical challenges. Cardio equipment such as treadmills and elliptical and strength training equipment such as kettlebells, dumbbells, weights, mats, skipping, and battle ropes, and others are higher in demand in offline stores. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, several gyms and health clubs remained closed, hence the demand for home fitness equipment surged.
The increased penetration rate of online platforms is pushing vendors to grow their online presence via e-commerce platforms and collaborations. As offline stores remained shut in Q1 and Q2 2020, online channel platforms gained traction. However, currently, the market is reopening gradually in many countries, which has revived offline sales, thereby expecting to further grow during the forecast period. Until 2021, the online sales channel segment is expected to dominate the market. The COVID-19 outbreak has generated major opportunities for the home fitness equipment market.
