Global lacrosse protective gear market

To play lacrosse, a complete set of protective equipment is required. Lacrosse equipment includes gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, helmet, and a stick. Pads differ in size and offer protection from player to player based on position, ability, comfort, and preference. For example, many attack players wear large and more protective pads to protect themselves from defensemen and checks thrown at them, while defenders typically wear small and less protective pads due to their reduced possibility of being checked.

Goalkeepers have the option to skip arm pads entirely, since they are in the goal throughout the duration of the game. In addition, skipping the use of arm pads maximizes the flexibility of goalkeepers as there is no fabric or pad that will hinder them. Goalkeepers usually wear protective chest pads to cover the stomach and chest and wear a plastic neck guard that connects to the chin of the helmet. This helps protect them from shots hitting their neck or windpipe. In addition, male goalkeepers are required to wear a protective cup.

Global lacrosse sticks market

A lacrosse stick has two parts, consisting of the head of the stick and a shaft. Heads and shafts are available in many varieties and types. For instance, heads of the sticks are available for different positions and different playing style. An attacker may desire a narrower head to maintain greater control over the ball. A defenseman may want a flatter and wider head to scoop up ground balls more easily. There are different shafts that can be used based on position and preference. An attacker may prefer a lighter shaft to move faster while cradling the ball and passing it to the shooter. A defenseman may want a stronger, heavier, and more durable shaft for the checks that they throw on the attacker.

Global lacrosse balls market

A lacrosse ball, is typically a rubber ball, usually white in color, however, the balls are available in different colors. Some of the popular vendors of lacrosse balls include Champion Sports, ECD, and Warrior Sports. It is advised to play with official lacrosse balls as unofficial balls tend to affect the quality of practice. Branded products, typically from established players such as Champion Sports, are preferred in the professional game. These products are NFHS certified and meet National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) specifications.

Global lacrosse accessories market

Players prefer lacrosse accessories from established vendors such as Warrior Sports, STX, and ECD. The demand for lacrosse accessories, coupled with its other equipment, is on the rise due to the increased participation rate in lacrosse. Accessories and other equipment are usually sold through store-based retailing.
