The global sports fishing equipment market grew at a CAGR of around 4% during 2014-2019. Sports fishing equipment refers to products, such as fishing rods, fishhooks, lines, baits, lures and sinkers that are used for recreational fishing and competitions. These tools are used for fishing without gear, grappling, stunning, line fishing, trapping, fishing with bag nets, trawling seining and gillnetting. The fishing lines are attached with natural or artificial bait to lure, hold and catch the fish. These lines are connected with reels for casting, spinning and fly fishing, which aid in hunting large-sized fishes and shellfishes. Various handheld tools, such as spears and harpoons, are also used that can be thrown with a thrust to wound and catch the fish.
Significant growth in the fishing industry represents one of the primary drivers of the market for sports fishing equipment. Along with this, increasing participation in water-based sports activities and a rising number of fishing associations and recreational fishing clubs are also contributing to the market growth. Sports fishermen and anglers are investing in high-quality fishing equipment that can be used in both freshwater and saltwater. Additionally, aggressive promotional activities by manufacturers, along with the development of the online retailing market that provides a hassle-free shopping experience while displaying a wide range of options to choose from to the consumers, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Manufacturers are developing innovative product variants that are connected with sensors to locate and track fishing hotspots through a smartphone application. Other factors, including increasing consumer preference for outdoor recreational activities, owing to the growing millennial population and rapid urbanization, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global sports fishing equipment to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
