Purchase Report


Extreme or adrenaline sports involves a high degree of risk to the participant. There has been a gradual increase in the interest among the people for these extreme, adventurous sports. It is estimated that the extreme sports category will be challenging the position of team sports and other professional sports in the most-watched category list in the years to come. Although the risk involved in these extreme sports is high, the number of people going for these sports is increasing gradually. Hang gliding is one of these extreme sports that has been attracting a lot of enthusiasts over the years. In hang gliding, the pilot flies a light foot-launched, heavier-than-air aircraft, which is called as a hang glider. The market for hang gliders is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% to reach over USD 500 million during the forecast period.

In terms of market segmentation by type, non-powered hang-glider segmented is expected to continue its dominance in the hang glider market during the forecast period. Most of the hang gliders we see today are not powered by any motor to propel the glider. The non-powered hang gliders can be converted to powered hang gliders by adding a power system, motor, and propeller along with other small changes in the system. Thus, non-powered hang gliders are primary built for the hang gliding, owing to their feasibility in conversion to powered ones. Further, non-powered hang gliders are cheap compared to powered ones. This is also one of the reasons for more people going for these hang gliders, and this trend is also expected to continue during the forecast period.

In terms of geography, North America is estimated to lead the market during the forecast period, due to the ever-growing number of enthusiasts for hang gliding in the region. The US currently has a huge market share in the hang glider market. Geographically, there are many places in the US that are favorable for the hang gliding, making it one of the most sought destinations for hang gliding sport. Also, there was an ever-increasing number of enthusiasts who prefer extreme sports like hang gliding in the US. This would generally create demand for the market in the years to come. Also, there are many events being conducted for hang gliding enthusiasts in the US annually. Kitty Hawk Kites, North Carolina, US recently hosted the 46th Annual Hang Gliding Spectacular in May 2018. Various other festivals are also being conducted annually on a large scale for many extreme sports in the US including the hang gliding.
