According to the most recent research conducted by Fact.MR, the riding gear market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.84 percent from 2021 to 2031.
Riding gear’s primary goal is to protect riders from serious injury by increasing abrasion resistance and reinforcing armour at critical contact points. Boots go a step further by providing extra ankle stability and grip, as well as providing protection and easier access to the rear brake lever.
Increased motorcycle sales, particularly in Asia-Pacific, and end users’ preference for and awareness of the greater safety and comfort provided by riding gears are some of the factors driving the market’s growth. In developed economies, high-capacity performance bikes account for a significant portion of sales, and they are primarily purchased by enthusiasts rather than daily commuters.
Motorcycle sales have been steadily increasing in recent years, owing to the affordable availability of 300-400cc bikes in emerging markets. The entry of well-known motorcycle brands like Harley Davidson, Ducati, and Aprilia into these countries aided the growth of the riding gear industry.

Coronavirus has had a significant impact on the global economy, including the riding gear industry. In China, the epicentre of the COVID-19 outbreak, many OEMs have manufacturing facilities. As a result of the world governments’ lockdown regulations, the production of bicycles, accessories, and riding gear was halted. Bike and riding gear consumption has nearly halved as a result of the lack of movement. In areas where adventure sports are popular, the pandemic disrupted the distribution channel.
While COVID-19 casts doubt on the future, the gradual opening of economies and relaxation of lockdown measures are increasing demand for motorcycles due to a shift in consumer preference, as people avoid public transportation and prefer motorcycles to other automobiles in developing countries in the region.
