COVID-19 Impact on the Global Fitness App Market
A fitness application or app is a software solution used for its numerous health-oriented functionalities that allow individuals to set long-term fitness goals, track calorie intake, gather workout ideas, and evaluate their current health status. Fitness apps are designed to work exclusively on smartphones since they are the most commonly used handheld devices today. The number of patients infected with coronavirus is increasing rapidly across the globe, which, in turn, has prompted the government authorities to impose the lockdown to prevent further spread. This has culminated in the bulk of the human population remaining at home to protect themselves from the disease. In addition, the pandemic has resulted in serious losses to the companies that are part of verticals such as airlines, oil & gas, automobiles, tourism, food & beverage, and so on. However, this is also applicable to the fitness app industry. Fitness application companies have sought to innovate their apps by engaging consumers with training and fitness awareness programs. In the United States, the average time spent by a person on a fitness app has risen from approximately 15 hours a week in 2019 to 25 hours a week during this lockdown. The Aarogya Setu app introduced by the Government of India in April 2020 has registered some 98 million downloads. Approximately 1.4 lakh users have been alerted to possible risks of infection. Application development companies are introducing fitness applications that support users with their exercise routine without the use of gym equipment. In addition, both fitness and healthcare apps are now being offered to developers. For example, the ‘Strava’ fitness app offers guidance on improving heart rate-focused exercise sessions and cross-training, among other features, based on user experience with workouts. In addition, another fitness app—Runtastic—offers users a 3-month free trial.
Several such initiatives and focused digital marketing strategies are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the fitness app industry, taking into account current market conditions.
