Market Overview

The rising number of people showing preferences to streamline sports is positively driving the demand for superior seating material. Metal is anticipated to register adoption in the seating infrastructure at stadiums due to its longevity and durability, as most of the stadium's management is acquiring cost-effective seating solutions with lower maintenance. Furthermore, the rising expansion activities at the global level, such as collaborations and partnerships, are likely to create new opportunities for the global metal stadium seating market.

  • For instance, in April 2023, Arena Group announced the completion of the Stadium Solutions acquisition. This strategic move is to expand its presence in the UK and Europe, driven by its proficiency in seating solutions and spectator stands.

Moreover, the presence of effective online streaming services in the market by the telecom broadcasting channels is highly motivating stadium management to establish the ultimate environment without causing any disappointment to the viewers to retain existing play viewers. Furthermore, social media is creating fear of missing out feeling (FOMO) among the internet users, significantly fueling the demand for real-time streaming of play at their stadiums. This, in a way, is driving the adoption of luxurious and comfortable seating infrastructure at stadiums, creating significant demand for metal stadium seating.

However, the availability of economical seating materials compared to metal, such as plastic and wood, is expected to impede the growth of the global metal stadium seating market in the next few years.

Growth Drivers

Rising stadium expansion activities

The significant uptick in stadium expansion activities by the sports leagues to accompany more participants to witness their game, along with enhancing revenue streams, is positively influencing the global metal stadium seating market. For instance, in April 2923, Wrexham Soccer Club announced the expansion of its stadium capacity to accommodate up to 15000 people by constructing a 5,500-seat grandstand.

Increase in the sports league activities

The significant rise in global sports activities is highly driving the demand for stadiums with efficient seating. A 2023 study published in Science Direct focused on exploring the rise and decline of Olympic games and the World Cup between 1964 and 2018. It concluded that in the past fifty years, the events have grown by fiftyfold. This demonstrates the rising need for compatible seating solutions, in a way driving metal seating due to its versatile properties.

Restraining Factors

Uncertain weather conditions are likely to hinder market growth

Metal is likely to witness corrosion with improper maintenance, leading to the need for efficient stadium management to replace existing seats with new ones. These maintenance costs and the temperature sensitivity of metals are likely to drive the adoption of other alternatives. The higher familiarity of wood as a seating material and its environmental friendliness are projected to hamper its adoption in the world market.

By Type Analysis

Telescopic seating segment is projected to grow at a higher rate

The telescopic segment is anticipated to grow at a superior CAGR during the projected time frame, driven by its ability to free up space and adaptability. This design is more comfortable and convenient for users. It promotes operational efficiency among the stadium management along with lowering maintenance costs, making it a compatible option for live sports streaming participants and owners, contributing to higher segmental growth in the long run.

The fixed seating segment led the market with a substantial revenue share in 2023, largely driven by perfection at the time of larger events. These are gaining application among the stadiums where the purpose of their use is consistent. The lower need to arrange seating all the time for every event is promoting its operational efficiency, driving significant demand from the stadium operations management.

By Design Analysis

Foldable segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023

The foldable segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023 and is likely to retain its market position throughout the forecast period. This is attributable to its potential to save space and the prominent storage of seats. The ability of a foldable seat to automatically stack away is saving the amount of labor required to clean the seat after the close of a sports event. This convenience is a major factor driving this segmental growth over non-foldable seating.

However, the non-foldable segment is projected to register significant growth in the marketplace owing to the higher familiarity with traditional non-foldable chairs. These non-foldable chairs have lower maintenance costs as there is a significant chance of operational failure of foldable seating, driving certain antique stadiums to follow their earlier design.

By Application Analysis

Outdoor stadium segment, accompanied by a larger revenue share in 2023

The outdoor stadium segment registered an iconic market share in revenue in 2023, which is expected to be stimulated during the study period. This segmental growth can be attributable to the higher resistance of metal to withstand UV rays and other extreme weather conditions. There will be a huge demand for superior seating materials, including metal, in the next few years, due to the growing demand for outdoor stadium seating in the global market.

The in-door stadium segment is likely to register prominent growth in the next few years due to its capacity to provide a unique and vibrant experience to spectators, with a limited need for replacement driven by its longevity.

Regional Insights

North America region accounted for the largest share of the global market in 2023

The North America region registered the dominant share in 2023. This is due to the significant uptick in the renovation and remodeling activities of existing stadiums. For instance, in January 2024, Populous announced the design for a temporary stadium with a capacity of 34,000 seats in New York. These development initiatives are likely to boost market growth in the coming years.

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at a faster pace with a healthy CAGR during the study period, attributable to the rising establishment of new stadiums with higher seating capacity in the region. The countries in Asia Pacific, specifically India, are showing tremendous interest in developing the sports sector to boost their economies. For instance, for the 2023 World Cup, India increased the spectator capacity to 132,000 at the Narendra Modi stadium, which is the largest stadium in the world. As these types of initiatives are likely to grow further, there will be tremendous growth potential for metal stadium seating in the coming years.
