The growing popularity of skateboarding as a recreational activity, as well as the emergence of extreme sports, is expected to boost the USA skateboard industry. Furthermore, the rising use of skateboards in schools and colleges as part of physical education curricula is likely to fuel skateboard demand throughout the forecast period. Rapid technological advancements and a rise in disposable income have increased the demand for skateboards. The increasing number of skate parks and competitions is also driving the skateboard market ahead. The skateboarding fad in the United States originated as a result of boredom during the COVID-19 lockdown, but it quickly spread over many parts of the country as one of the fastest-growing. Rising demand for electric skateboards and rapid technological advancements are some key factors expected to continue to drive market growth in the country. Rising demand for sporting activities among teenagers will boost product demand in the market. The product demand is fuelled by the increasing demand for skating as a sport in many countries. Apart from using it as a source of fun, it also provides flexibility and a good physical shape to the body. Furthermore, the inclination towards fitness has resulted in increased outdoor sports activities, which will act as a key factor driving the market over the forecast period.


There are currently more than 16 million skateboarders in the USA, with nearly a third, or over five million, in California. Support is constantly increasing for public skate parks as more and more communities develop free skate parks. According to the obtained data, 6.4 million people participated in skateboarding in the USA in 2016. Skateboarding is ranked third in the most popular sports category after football and basketball. In 2019, the 26th Annual Tampa Am in Florida, the Jackalope Festival, the Central Mass Skate Festival, and X Games Minneapolis took place across the country. Various competitions that are expected to take place in 2023 are the Canadian Tire National Skating Championship, the Toyota USA Figure Skating Championship, the World University Games, and the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2023. The Summer Olympics 2020 have benefited both aspiring skaters and skateboard manufacturers. The growing construction of skate parks has also fueled the evolution of the market. There are approximately 3343 skate parks in the United States. Growing support for the construction of public skate parks has induced governments to take initiatives for such construction.


According to the research, around 144 million (48%) Americans participated in an outdoor activity at least once during the historic period. While 10.6 million Americans returned to or started participating in one or more of the outdoor activities measured, 8.6 million stopped. Moreover, according to the WHO, more than 340 million populations aged 5–19 years were overweight or obese in 2016. Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates have tripled in the USA, and today, the country has some of the highest obesity rates in the world, as one out of six children is obese, and one out of three children is overweight or obese. As a result, parents and institutions are encouraging kids to indulge themselves in outdoor sporting activities.

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 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 country. The electric skateboard segment is expected to lead the market in the USA, followed by street boards, owing to its growing popularity among youngsters. The growing popularity of professional skateboarders, such as Tony Hawk, is also aiding the growth of the market. Skateboarding’s key dynamic factors are increased responsiveness and widespread invention availability.


Growing demand for eco-friendly products, collective interest in different sports activities, and the escalating popularity of the sport of skateboarding are the main driving issues that contribute to the increasing demand for the skateboard. The growing consciousness of the sport will also have a positive influence on the growth of the market over the next few years. The main restraint on the US skateboard market is the risk of injuries linked with skateboarding. A skateboard is a type of sports apparatus used principally for the sport of skateboarding.


Covid-19 Impact:
The most recent COVID-19 epidemic began in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and it has expanded rapidly since then. As of March 2020, China, Italy, Iran, Spain, the Republic of Korea, France, Germany, and the United States were among the worst-affected countries in terms of positive cases and reported deaths. Because of lockdowns, travel bans, and company closures caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, numerous countries' economies and industries have suffered. As a result of this outbreak, the skateboard industry is one of the key businesses experiencing severe disruptions such as supply chain breakdowns, technology event cancellations, and office closures. The total market is collapsing as a result of COVID-19, which is also impacting market growth. However, with changes in consumer behaviour and rising awareness regarding sports across the region, it is anticipated that the market will witness higher market growth in the upcoming period.
