An Entire Industry Dedicated to your Wellbeing

India is among the largest sports goods manufacturers in Asia after countries like China and Japan. Although its share in global trade is only around one per cent, it is a niche player in manufacturing. For instance, inflated balls produced in India are largely hand stitched and, therefore, have better bounce than the machine-stitched balls from China this gives them an advantage over China in European markets where hand stitched balls are preferred. In India, Jalandhar has grown as the major centre of India's sports goods industry. Meerut in Uttar Pradesh is the second and Gurgaon in Haryana is the third largest clusters of sports goods manufacturing.
