The top three product segments for the global curling equipment market are discussed below:


Curling broom is an essential curling equipment that is used to balance the stones while delivering and sweeping the path through which the stones move. Traditional curling brooms were made of fabric, horsehair, or hog hair. Modern curling brooms are manufactured in the shape of a hollow tube and are made of either fiberglass or carbon fiber.

According to Sharan Raj, a lead retail goods and services research analyst from Technavio, “Since lightweight sports equipment is in demand in all sports; the modern brooms are in high demand. Hence, many technologically advanced brooms are also being introduced by the key competitors. For example, Asham Curling Supplies are designing Xtreme Force broom handle to enhance the sweeping power of the players and at the same time reduce the chances of risk.”


Curling shoes play an important part in the performance of the players as they take care of slides. The shoes are constructed with dissimilar soles on both shoes. One shoe is known as the slider shoe, and the other is known as the gripper shoe. The slider shoe is used to slide on the curling ice sheet, while the gripper shoe is used to hack the surface of the ice.

“Many innovative products have been introduced by the key competitors. For example, Asham Curling Supplies uses RDS technology to enable the shoes to produce the straightest sliding path when its slider becomes scratched after use. Velcro soles are attached to such shoes,” adds Sharan.


Curling stones are made of granite and weigh between 38 and 44 pounds with a maximum circumference of 36 inches and height of 4.5 inches. WFC monitors these specifications on the manufacture of curling equipment. A handle attached to the stone helps to grip and release it strategically.

Andrew Kay & Co (Curling Stones) is the leading manufacturer of curling stones. The stones of the company are high-quality refurbished stones. They are widely used in most of the major tournaments and are made of granite from Ailsa Craig, which is the best in the world.
