However, post the upliftment of lockdown, mounting participation in fishing activities and a rapidly increasing number of recreational activities have curated new growth paths for the global market.

Moreover, with a significant upsurge in the number of fishers across the world, fishing rod manufacturers are expecting lucrative growth opportunities, which, in turn, would further accelerate the growth of the global market in the years to come.

Market Segmentation

Based on Product:

  • Spinning Rods
  • Fly Fishing Rods
  • Casting Rods

Amongst them all, spinning rods held the largest share in the Global Fishing Rods Market in the previous few years, and the same trend is projected even during 2022-27. It attributes primarily to their simple & hassle-free application and high efficiency in throwing lighter lures at long distances in water. These rods are incredibly beneficial for fishing at windy places since it makes casting easier. Moreover, their versatility, excellent durability, & low-costs are other characteristics that contribute to their dominance in the global market.

On the other hand, the demand for fly fishing rods is projected to witness the fastest growth in the market through 2027, owing prominently to its capability for casting lures in the water from a long distance. Fly fishing is most effective on rivers and not lakes. Fly fishing rods are lightweight and do not require reeling before casting. As a result, their increasing popularity for commercial fishing activities is augmenting the growth of the global fishing rods market.

Based on Raw Material:

  • Bamboo
  • Fiberglass
  • Carbon Fibre

Here, Bamboo fishing rods held the largest market share in previous years, owing principally to their flexibility, high-tensile strength, UV & acid resistance, and lightweight yet superior durability. Fishing rods made of bamboo sticks are suited best for small & still water bodies, environmentally friendly, and if kept properly, they survive several years without losing their characteristics.

Moreover, in long-distance fishing, where accurate casting is required, they are considered an ideal companion. In addition, their easy casting technique, which makes them a perfect choice for novice anglers, is another critical factor contributing to their growing demand worldwide and driving the global market.

Nevertheless, Fiberglass fishing rods are gaining rapid traction in the global market. These rods are most suitable for catching large & heavy baits and are the preferred choice of fishers, owing to their lower costs and lighter weight yet more durability than graphite fishing rods. Hence, with these aspects, their adoption is significantly increasing for commercial fishing activities, which, in turn, is accelerating the overall market growth.
