As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Akash Vedpathak, “the Global Kayak Helmets Market” is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2023-2030. Key factors that are anticipated to fuel the demand for the global kayak helmets market during the forecast period are Increasing watersport activities in developed nations, and high safety regulations/standards in watersport activities. Conversely, declining demand for plastic kayak helmets hampers the growth of the Kayak Helmets market. Increasing research on raw material are expected to create opportunities in the market.

Kayak helmets are specially designed helmets used in watersports activities such as kayaking for skull protection. Kayaking is one of the most dangerous watersports and leads to a high probability of getting injuries. Hence, all kayakers are required to wear helmets and other protective equipment while kayaking. Kayak helmets are made from a variety of materials such as plastic, Kevlar, carbon fiber, and others. The helmets made from carbon fiber and Kevlar are more effective in protecting the skull than the helmets made from plastic, as plastic helmets are prone to shattering upon severe impact.

Modern helmets feature plastic shells; however, Kevlar and carbon fiber shells are lighter in weight and absorb more shocks upon impact than plastic. Full-cut and half-cut helmets are two types of kayak helmets. Full-cut kayak helmets extend low and cover the ears, while half-cut helmets do not extend low over the ears and instead end above the ears. The choice between the two is largely a matter of preference. Full-cut helmets protect the skull; however, half-cut helmets are comfortable and have a loose fitting.

Supply chain management is a pivotal part of any business. A supply chain contains a series of steps to get products from their original state to the customers. These steps include transforming components/raw materials into final products, transporting those products, and distributing them to the end users. Entities in the supply chain include raw material suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, and the final end use-industry. Application of Kayak Helmets includes Sports Race, and Entertainment.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global kayak helmet market, with most brands reporting lower sales. The primary causes of spillovers are logistics, production, finance, and human resources. The raw material did not arrive at its destination, the production lines were idle while waiting for raw material, the labor force was not present to process the material into finished products, and restricted financial transactions did not allow for a smooth cash flow, resulting in an irreversible halt. As a result, the situation has devolved into a curved condition, causing a decline in sustainability and profitability.
