Increasing Avalanche Fatalities to Trigger Adoption of Avalanche Airbags
Rising fatalities associated with avalanche mishaps have caused major concerns among mountaineers and enthusiasts. This factor has pushed the use of various safety gears such as avalanche airbags. In United States, more than 925 fatalities due to avalanche mishaps were recorded during the 1951-2013 timeline, according to Colorado Avalanche Information Center. This count is likely to increase in the coming years on account of increasing utilization of backcountry, says Colorado Avalanche Information Center. Likewise, avalanche fatalities in Europe, in particular the Alps, have risen steadily. On an average, more than 26 individual fatalities occur every year in Austria alone, which has increased to 37 deaths.
Increasing Skiing and Snowboarding Participation Influencing Sales of Avalanche Airbags
There has been a steady increase in skiing and snowboarding activities across the globe, which is expected to translate into an increase in demand for avalanche airbags. According to NSAA (National Ski Areas Association), 2017-2018 (Q3) timeline reflected participation of about 9.2 million people in skiing and snowboarding million, which is likely to increase in the coming years. Likewise, in EU, participation in skiing is likely to cross 6 million by 2018 end owing to skiing championships held in the region. For instance, the upcoming 2018/2019 Audi FIS Ski World Cup in Austria has attracted more than 200 participants, which is expected to augur well for the growth of the avalanche airbags market.
Avalanche Airbags Cannot be considered as a Complete Replacement – A Possible Growth Deterrent
Uncertainties associated with avalanche airbags with respect to survival percentages continue to challenge avalanche airbags sales. During avalanche situations, there are certain situations where avalanche airbags operations fail, resulting in a higher possibility of avalanche fatalities. For example, if the user is at the bottom of a steep sided valley, an avalanche safety gear such as avalanche airbags would not be effective owing. Although avalanche airbags enable the user to stay on top of snow slab, there is a higher possibility of injuries occurring due to rocks and trees present on the slope. Against this backdrop, relative uncertainty lies with use of avalanche airbags that cannot be considered as a complete replacement for standard safety gear such as shovel, probes and transceivers. This factor is expected to challenge the growth of the avalanche airbags market.
