Turbo trainers are stationary devices on which a bike can be clamped for indoor cycling. They provide a form of resistance that replicates the act of cycling on roads, climbing, and sprinting. These devices allow people to change the extent of resistance based on their requirements. The rising health concerns among people owing to the increasing prevalence of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart diseases are driving the demand for turbo trainers. Sedentary work culture leads to many health ailments, and people are unable to join gyms and fitness clubs due to their busy schedules, which is driving the trend of home workouts such as indoor cycling.

The COVID-19 pandemic further underlined the importance of health and fitness in the last two years.

Indoor cycling equipment may help users meet their daily physical activity requirements without stepping out of their homes. Turbo trainers can be used for indoor cycling; their easy availability and cost-effectiveness, and the ability to put less strain on the spine and lower body make turbo trainers suitable equipment for indoor cycling. Thus, the growing popularity of indoor cycling is likely to provide notable growth opportunities for the turbo trainer market players in the coming years.
