200 million people in Europe regularly play some kind of sport. Another 140 million in the US. Physical recreation, without a doubt, has outstripped every other kind of downtime activity.
The pace is set to keep climbing, with the emergence of middle classes in China and India swelling these figures. There is also a growing trend towards leisure activities combining physical exertion, fun, and risk-taking.
In tune with these trends, standardization and regulatory control in the sector have also shifted gear, and now cover an increasingly wide-reaching range of products: from campsite tables to roller sports equipment and back to fitness training equipment and boardsports gear.
The AFNOR Group's input to this sphere contributes the alertness and experience necessary to successfully take to the field in an increasingly competitive arena.
