The increasing usage of fitness applications in smart devices is set to play a crucial role in contributing to the home fitness equipment industry growth in the near future. These applications help in maintaining and improving personal fitness routines. These can be connected with smart electronic devices and have built-in sensors.
In February 2021, for instance, Milt and Devon Linn announced their plan to open their ‘smart fitness studio’ in West Chester next week. It is called The Exercise Coach and relies on robotics and computers instead of dumbbells and treadmills.
The global home fitness equipment market is projected to grow from USD 10.73 billion in 2021 to USD 14.74 billion in 2028. The rising development of smart dumbbells is set to affect the industry positively.
Published this information in a new study, titled, “Home Fitness Equipment Industry, 2021-2028.” As per the study, the industry stood at USD 10.18 billion in 2020. It would exhibit a CAGR of 4.6% in the forecast period between 2021-2028.

1. Offline Segment to Grow Significantly Fueled by Ability to Eliminate Delivery Wait Time
This growth is attributable to the rising preference for offline sales channels because of their ability to eliminate delivery wait time. Additionally, the presence of skilled salesmen in stores will help customers to gain in-depth knowledge about numerous products. Besides, offline purchases provide the convenience of after-sale services.
2. Rising Number of Dual-income Households to Favor Growth in the Asia Pacific
Asia Pacific: It is expected to show robust growth throughout the forthcoming years on account of the rising expenditure on home fitness equipment as a result of dual-income households. Also, rising government initiatives to promote health and physical education in schools would aid growth in the region.
North America: The region earned USD 3.55 billion in 2020 in terms of revenue. The presence of renowned manufacturers, such as Cybex International, Life Fitness, and Precor Incorporated would augment growth.
Europe: The high per capita income is estimated to propel regional growth. A large number of people living in this region are engaged in regular exercises, which, in turn, is anticipated to surge the demand for home fitness equipment.
Collaborations & Acquisitions — Vital Plan of Key Players
Key companies present in the global industry are striving to gain a competitive edge by introducing new brands of home fitness equipment by collaborating with local firms. Some of the others are striving to broaden their geographical footprints through acquisitions.
