However, rowing machines consume more floor space as compared to other workout machines, hence these are less popular in gyms. Moreover, rowing machines can cause back pain and injuries if used without proper training and guidance. Additionally, some water and air rowers are noisy. These factors are likely to restraint the rower market during the forecast period. However, increasing its popularity and awareness in the untapped market through promotion, leasing options etc.is one of the key opportunity for the growth of rower market. Indoor rowing represents a vast opportunity for gym and fitness studio operators to tap into the latent demand that exists for the sport.
