Published Date : Dec 19, 2016

Albany, NY, Dec 19, 2016: The report, titled “Global Knee Pad Market 2016-2020,” states that the market will exhibit growth at a steady pace over the period between 2016 and 2020, and post a 4% CAGR over the said period. 

A key trend observed in the global kneepads market is the rising demand for gel knee pads, wherein a gel is directly injected into the knee pad foam. The gel in the foam padding ensures even distribution of pressure on the knees, resulting in reduced pain even when the wearer is involved in prolonged kneeling activities. Several vendors have introduced products that incorporate the idea and many more are expected to launch their products adhering to this design principle in the near future. 

In terms of end users, the global knee pad market has been segmented into individuals and industrial users. Of these, the segment of individual users accounted for the dominant share in the global market and is expected to lead the global market over the forecast period as well. The growth of this end-use segment, including sports enthusiasts and gardeners as the primary users, can be attributed to the fact that knee pads help prevent damage to kneecap by offering good shock absorption. Thus, by reducing the risk of a serious knee injury to a great extent, knee pads are witnessing increased usage in sports activities and are expected to gain increased prominence across the sports segment by 2020.
