By Application, Commercial  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the fitness equipment market, dumbbells hold a significant share, with retail outlets being a key growth driver. These outlets encompass direct selling, distributors, department stores, and specialty stores. The proliferation of these stores is attributed to their knowledgeable customer-care professionals, who offer expert advice on dumbbells' benefits. Additionally, manufacturers benefit from reduced operating costs due to the absence of middlemen. Direct selling, in particular, offers the added advantage of on-site assembly and maintenance, ensuring customer satisfaction. Retail outlets, including department stores, distributors, and specialty stores, cater to consumers' preference for brand comparisons and extensive product options.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The dumbbells market in the region is poised for growth due to the expanding millennial demographic engaging in fitness and recreational sports activities. This trend is further fueled by the availability of technologically advanced dumbbells designed for individual use, such as Amer Sports' Rubber Hex Dumbbell Set, which enhances muscle toning and core strength. In 2020, the surge in demand for home gym equipment, including dumbbells, was significant due to the pandemic-induced lockdowns. Despite this, the demand for commercial fitness equipment is expected to decline temporarily.
