Industry Insights

The global yoga mat market size was worth USD 11.67 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period. The rising popularity of yoga particularly in countries such as Canada, the U.S., and the U.K. is projected to propel the demand for yoga mats. In addition, the health benefits associated with doing yoga are also boosting the market growth. 

According to a report, in 2016, over 36 million Americans practiced yoga. Additionally, the growing number of yoga studios across the globe is driving the demand for the product. Moreover, government authorities are taking up initiatives to promote Ayurveda and yoga. For example, in 2017, the Indian government opened over 100 parks for yoga across the country.

U.S. yoga mat market

In 2018, the government invested over INR 1000 crore in developing a medicine system called AYUSH. The fast-growing wellness tourism sector and the addition of ancient techniques in modern education are anticipated to have a significant impact on market growth. According to studies, the number of people doing yoga is increased from 5% in 2008 to 11% in 2018.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) type mats have dominated the market in 2018, owing to their low price, and high efficiency.
