Global tennis rackets market

The global tennis rackets market was valued at USD 469 million in 2015. Based on the raw materials used, the global tennis rackets market is segmented into different categories. The carbon fiber segment accounted for 60.3% of the global tennis racket market in 2015. Carbon fiber, or graphite, is the primary raw material used for manufacturing tennis rackets worldwide. Carbon fiber has a diameter of approximately 5-10 μm and are usually mixed with other compounds such as tungsten or titanium to manufacture tennis rackets. The rackets made of graphite are lightweight and rigid. This improves the stability and performance of players. The aluminum segment accounted for 39.7% of the global tennis racket market in 2015. Aluminum is usually used for manufacturing rackets for amateur players or beginners and for recreational purposes as they are more durable, sturdy, and much heavier. In addition, they are cheaper than graphite rackets, and thus are usually purchased by occasional and seasonal players.

Global tennis balls market

The global tennis balls market was valued at USD 423.8 million in 2015. The global tennis balls market accounted for the second-highest share of the global tennis equipment market, and Technavio researchers expect it to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The major reason for this is the product's high replacement cycle.

Tennis balls are normally fluorescent yellow in color, although the International Tennis Federation (ITF) approves of both yellow and white colors. In the case of professional tennis, the optic yellow ball is used, due to the color being much more visible on a TV screen. Dunlop, GAMMA Sports, and Wilson Sporting Goods are the most popular manufacturers of tennis balls.

Global other tennis equipment market

The global other tennis equipment market was valued at USD 317.3 million in 2015. Based on retail format, the overall global tennis equipment market is segmented into specialty and sports shops, department and discount stores, online retail, and others.

Large specialty and sports shops offer popular brands of tennis equipment, making these shops attractive to consumers. The specialty and sports shops segment dominated the global tennis equipment market with a share of 46.32% in 2015. This was followed by sales through department and discount stores, which accounted for 23.57% of global tennis equipment sales.
