London, Business Wire -- Technavio’s latest market research report on the global military fitness training equipment market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Moutushi Saha, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on defense sector, says, “The training courses provided by defense authorities prepare soldiers for real-time scenarios by improving their physical fitness and developing tactics to survive in difficult climatic conditions. Therefore, military tactical fitness training programs use premium fitness equipment to add value to soldiers’ tactical training routines.”

The top three emerging market trends driving the global military fitness training equipment market according to Technavio aerospace and defense research analysts are:

- Customized equipment for specialized training
- Emerging new technologies
- Integration of software technologies with fitness equipment

Customized equipment for specialized training

Soldiers in different vocations perform different tasks, which require different levels of effort. Therefore, defense authorities are not only defining different fitness training methods for different army vocations but trainees are also being provided with customized equipment for maintaining physical and mental fitness.

The defense is investing in new fitness equipment technologies such as Kinesis (developed by TECHNOGYM) which improves the flexibility, strength, and balancing capabilities of a soldier. Also, it is expected that in future, more motorized and network-based battle will take place, which will require high flexibility and strength. Thus, manufacturers are investing in developing advanced fitness training equipment, which will help propel the market during the forecast period.

Emerging new technologies

Vendors are striving to bring in new innovative technologies to boost the sales of military fitness training equipment. Rapid advances in technology in the fitness industry pave the way for increased adoption of new equipment as older equipment becomes obsolete. Moreover, advanced fitness equipment promises higher and better performance, and it also ensures greater safety.

One of the examples of advanced technology in fitness equipment is the cardio-aerobic exercise equipment that raises the heart rate and exercises the major muscles in a rhythmical way. These are available on treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals. Similarly, the TRX Suspension Trainer consists of various ropes and straps, which allow the user to do different body weight exercises, to help increase strength, coordination, and balance.

Integration of software technologies with fitness equipment

Integration of software solutions with fitness equipment establishes a complete network-enabled exercise tracking system. Such next-generation fitness training equipment is emerging as the new trend in the market.

These highly-advanced software technologies enable instructors to develop, implement, and monitor individual and group training programs. Internet-based training modules, such as the Training room by Techno gym is an internet-based Wellness System module, which provides soldiers access to training activity from anywhere in the world.

“These internet-based modules enable troops to log their activity from home or an operational base by accessing data available to them at their base facility,” says Moutushi.
