Global cycling helmet market is expected to rise at a steady CAGR in the predicted period. The head being the most vulnerable part in the body needs to be protected against any kind of injuries, shocks and accidents. Particularly, when undertaking an adventure sport the head is more prone to potential risks such as falling rocks, ice or snow. The chances of hitting the head against nature elements while trekking not only adds but multiplies. Hence, in the case of impact there are two ways head injuries can be caused. One is, a sharp object may cause a severe injury to the skull or brain by penetrating inside and second is the blunt one caused by crushing or traumatic injuries.
Protection of brain from any trauma should be the prime motto in any sport. That is why the terms such as headgears, headgaurds and helmet have been coined in the past. A severe brain injury may result into potential death or chronic disability. Therefore, to avoid any consequences helmets are to be used with a clear conscience. Cycle helmets are one such protection shield that is used for protection against brain trauma and injuries. The material used for production of cycle helmets includessynthetic polystyrenefoam that can lessen linear acceleration resulting from direct impact to head, but more precisely angular acceleration from oblique impulse is a significant cause of brain injury.
Factors such as cost of raw materials, labor expense and other manufacturing overheads are anticipated to contribute to the market growth. Also, the rise in number of deaths occurring due to road accidents and non-wearing of helmets adds to the market growth in the predicted period. However, availability of cheap helmets is another factor that may hinder the market growth in predicted period. Based on product segmentation, the global market includes MTB Helmets, road helmets and sport helmets. Based on end-user segmentation, the global market includes recreation and commuter. Recreation segment is anticipated to dominate the market in the predicted period owing to significant demand.
