Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Resistance Bands Market

In 2020, various industries had to slow down their operations due to disruptions in value and supply chains caused by the shutdown of national and international boundaries. The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected economies and industries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Disruptions in the supply chains of key raw materials and irregularities in manufacturing processes due to restrictions imposed by government authorities directly impacted the consumer goods industry, which hampered the production and demand of products such as resistance bands. However, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has helped video classes and at-home workouts become more mainstream and popular. In 2020, many people either temporarily discontinued their gym memberships or canceled them as gyms were forced to shut down due to the global lockdown. As a result, many people started a fitness routine at home with the help of virtual exercise content such as fitness-centric YouTube channels. Online fitness enthusiasts helped audiences keep their routines despite the drop in in-person classes. Thus, the rising adoption of in-home fitness practices increased the demand for resistance bands.
