A skateboard is a type of sports equipment or toy used primarily for the activity of skateboarding. It usually consists of a specially designed Maplewood board combined with a polyurethane coating of smoother slides and stronger durability. Most skateboards are made with seven plies of this wood. The global average price of skateboards fluctuates, falling from 37 USD/unit in 2012 to 33 USD/unit in 2016. With the situation of the global skateboard industry, prices will be fluctuating in the following years. As for the Europe region, the attraction of people towards recreational activities and skateboarding promotional events is expected to contribute to the growth of the skateboard ramp market. The government funds for the development of skate parks and skateboard ramps are anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market. The demand for separate skate parks and skateboard ramps by young enthusiasts and by parents to avoid on-street skateboarding is anticipated to drive the European skateboard market. The growing trend of artistic skating and recreational and fitness in-line skating will also provide a growth opportunity for the market in the forecast period. According to the research report, "Europe Skateboard Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the overall market is anticipated to reach around USD 1585 Million in market size during the forecast period. During the historic time period, the market has grown at a CAGR of 3%. Europe's skateboard market accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2022. Rising demand for electric skateboards and rapid technological advancements are some key factors expected to continue to drive market growth in Europe. The UK, Germany, and France are the three major markets for skateboards in Europe. The growing popularity of extreme sports is driving the market in the region. As a result, an increase in outdoor sports in Europe is expected to drive the electric skateboard market. The role of social media is critical in the penetration of new sports among society's last mile. The major participants in this sport are the youth segment, which remains active on social media, where they keep exploring new types and equipment needed for skating. The millennial population is a major follower of sports news channels and sports celebrities on social media platforms, which is anticipated to grow in popularity in the forecast period. European skaters run globally respected brands that rival and perhaps overshadow some of the longest-standing American brands. Moreover, funding and investment by the government, as well as NGOs to promote sports and develop advanced infrastructure, are providing growth to the market in the region. From September 30 to October 2, the Marina Norte in Valencia hosted the Valencia European Skate Open (VESO), which is a must-see event for fans of skateboarding and local and international riders. For three days, more than 400 athletes from all over the world got together in the city on the Turia River to take part in various skateboarding, surfing, scooter, roller freestyle, surf skate, and SUP race competitions.

Paris has become one of the best skate cities in Europe. The shift from vertical skating to street skating played a major role in making Paris one of the best skate cities. Besides terrain, other elements such as community, culture, and legality are also boosting the market growth. Espace Glisse Paris 18 is the largest skatepark in Paris, quite literally a skater’s paradise with 3,000 m2 of skateable areas. With the recent rise of streetwear in the highest spheres of fashion, skate culture and the skateboard style have become even more readily embraced by the city. More and more skate shops have been opening up in the French capital, such as Nozbone, Day Off, Odilon, and Snowbeach. Paris has amazing spots that welcome skaters, like Le Dome, La Défense, or Trocadéro gardens, which are frequented by skaters daily. Paris plans to continue its plans to expand skateboarding around town over the next few years, solidifying its title as a European skateboarding haven.
