Market Driver

Japan has a lot of older people, and more are coming. In 2015, 27% of the population was 65 or older. By 2021, it went up to 30%. By 2030, one out of every three people will be 65 or older, and one out of every five will be 75 or older. As people get older, they need to stay flexible and strong to stay healthy. Many older folks like Pilates because it’s gentle and doesn’t push them too hard.

Pilates equipment can help them stay flexible and mobile, which is great for people with arthritis, osteoporosis, or other problems that come with age. The Japanese government wants people to stay healthy as they get older, so they started the ‘Healthy Japan 21’ program. Pilates equipment can help with this, so it’s becoming more popular in Japan. Older people want to stay active and healthy, so the market for Pilates equipment is growing.

Market Challenges

  • Fitness products like Pilates equipment face tough competition from other activities like yoga, aerobics, walking, jogging, cycling, rope skipping, dancing, trekking, hiking, and swimming. Yoga isn’t just about calming the mind; it also burns calories and tones muscles through stretching. Traditional workouts offer similar benefits to strength training, improving strength and relaxing muscles. Yoga poses can also strengthen the digestive and circulatory systems.
  • Consumers prefer other strength equipment like weight plates, benches, home gyms, barbells, and kettlebells. The ‘Big Four’ barbell exercises—squats, bench presses, overhead presses, and deadlifts—give a full-body workout and are great for cardio. Some barbells are lightweight and can be loaded with light weights.
  • These alternatives have low initial costs and maintenance compared to Pilates equipment. They’re also more widely known in developed and developing countries. So, the availability of other fitness equipment will make it hard for the Pilates equipment market to grow in Japan.
