Vendors operating in this market and sports equipment manufacturers play a major role in the growth of the market. The competition is likely to intensify in most countries and this is expected to be beneficial for end-consumers, thereby contributing to the market's growth.

Carbon fibers are highly preferred for the manufacture of sports equipment like sports sticks and rackets, primarily due to their advanced properties such as light weight, high strength to weight ratio, improved resistance, and stiffness. Carbon fibers are used extensively for the manufacture of golf club shafts, as these materials render a better swing to golf clubs.
