Increasing cases of lifestyle diseases and rising awareness about the health benefits of yoga are also boosting the product demand.

Yoga Mats Market size, by material

According to studies, around 36.7 million of American practiced yoga in 2016. Moreover, rising number of yoga studios in developed regions is expected to drive the product demand further. Many governments have initiated supportive programs to promote yoga and Ayurveda. For instance, in 2017, the government of India opened more than 100 Yoga Parks in the country.

In 2018, the government allocated more than INR 1000 crore for the development of AYUSH system of medicine. In addition, inclusion of this ancient technique in education system and rapidly growing wellness tourism sector are expected to have a positive impact on the market development. As per studies, in 2008, around 5% of population practiced yogic techniques on daily basis or occasionally, which doubled in a decade to nearly 11% in 2018.

Germany is one of the potential markets in Europe. The Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) material segment accounted for the maximum market share in 2018 due to high efficiency and low cost of these materials. However, manufacturers are focusing on developing products from eco-friendly and biodegradable materials, such as rubber and Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE), owing to stringent government regulations on use of plastic. Thus, rubber material segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period.

Yoga Mat Market Trends

The rising frequency of lifestyle disorders is expected to fuel the need for yoga mats.  Other major factors, such as increased public knowledge of the health advantages of yoga and an increase in the number of yoga studios, are expected to accelerate the market expansion.

An increase in demand for various end-use businesses is expected to boost the market's growth. Moreover, a rising number of incidences of obesity and other connected ailments such as cardiac arrest, hypertension, hypotension, and diabetes would drive people to participate in yoga, further boosting the market's growth.

Nowadays, a safe and hygienic yoga mat helps a lot. Unfortunately, there is a possibility that hazardous compounds are included in the mat. The key methods by which hazardous substances enter the body are inhalation and skin absorption. PVC mats have recently come under criticism due to their suspected toxicity. Heavy metals found in PVC mats are extremely hazardous. Additionally, cadmium (metal found in yoga mats) has been related to decreased bone mineral density, premature labor, kidney illness, and damage, all of which can lead to major health problems. Such variables are hampering industry growth.

The use of eco-friendly and recyclable plastics is creating new opportunities in the market. As yoga enthusiasts spend more money on solid, pleasant, and environmentally friendly items and administrations, major organizations are focusing on using elements that have low quantities of fossil fuel byproducts during the manufacturing process. Furthermore, strict rules in certain locations have driven manufacturers to invest in environmentally friendly components for making yoga mats. Many yoga mat manufacturers are shifting their focus from PVC materials to thermal plastic elastic (TPE) products and others such as regular elastic, cotton, and jute this is expected to provide better opportunities for the market.

However, the segment will lose its share owing to growing environmental concerns as PVC is non-recyclable and contains hazardous chemicals.

PU is non-toxic, lightweight material that can be recycled.

Distribution Channel Insights

Departmental store is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2019 to 2025. Increasing number of departmental stores in tier II and tier III cities is expected to promote product sales through this channel.

Yoga Mats Market share, by distribution channel
