Skateboard is primarily a narrow board with small wheels attached at both ends. Skateboarding helps people maintain their shape by relieving stress and increasing body flexibility. Skateboards are made up of three parts: a truck, a deck, and wheels. The deck of a skateboard is a flat board on which the rider stands while skating, whereas the truck is a T-shaped metal piece that attaches the skateboard wheels to the deck. Skateboard decks are made from a variety of materials, including maple wood, aluminum, composites, nylon, foam, and fiberglass. Skating is more than a hobby or a passion in North America; it's a way of life. It provides the population with an identity, a creative outlet, and a means of expression. Skateboarding is one of the most popular solo sports. Millions of people love it, and it is considered a very young and cool sport.

The robust presence of well-established companies, the rising adoption of electric skateboards, and the increasing number of skateboard competitions conducted in major countries such as the United States and Canada are major factors driving market revenue growth in this region. The growth can be attributed to the increasing number of extreme sports enthusiasts and rising disposable income in the region. The electric skateboard segment is expected to lead the market in North America, followed by street boards, owing to its growing popularity among youngsters. Among the countries, the US is the largest market for skateboards in North America. The growing popularity of professional skateboarders, such as Tony Hawk, is also aiding the growth of the market. North America emerged as the prime regional market for global revenue. The key dynamic factors in skateboarding are increased responsiveness and widespread invention availability.

The coronavirus pandemic has placed tremendous pressure on businesses and sectors across North America. Various regulations had been put in place by governments to limit seizure. The contribution of these regulations has had a negative impact on the skateboarding industry. The market was harmed by the restrictions on public transportation and the disruption caused by the lockdown. Most of the sectors are not functioning properly due to the influence of COVID-19, which has caused an adverse impact on the overall market. However, an increasing focus on healthy lifestyles owing to the same pandemic is projected to boost the demand for skateboards during the upcoming timeframe.
