With fishing being a favorite activity, fishing equipment market is registering healthy growth. Increasing disposable income and rapidly growing emerging markets, especially within Asia-Pacific, have largely stimulated spending culture in the global retail markets, contributing to the constant surge in fishing equipment and other leisure products markets. Further, increasing expenditure by millions of anglers across the globe and special taxes collected on fishing tackle and motorboat fuel are significantly contributing in supporting fish recreational programs and fisheries conservation.

Development of new advanced fishing equipment, brand loyalty and consolidation activity among the players represent the key trends governing the global fishing equipment market. To address the surging demand for fishing equipment, manufacturers are developing new gears and long lines with several hooks attached to the systems for catching fish. Fishing equipment market is largely characterized by brand loyalty. With majority of anglers who fish use specific brands, value of the premium quality fishing tackle brands is surging phenomenally. Further, the "catch and release" trend among the anglers has largely plummeted the use of live bait, which in turn has increased the demand for premium quality lures.

Fishing equipment is a highly fragmented market, with several players vying to attain the larger market pie. Players are adopting several strategies to reinforce their strategic positions. Strategic acquisitions represent one of the key strategies adopted by the players to enhance their positions. The consolidation activity enables players to increase their product portfolios, pursue co-branding or cross-selling in foreign businesses and enter new geographic regions. Further, acquisitions also aid companies to expand their distribution channels to market their products.
