Challenges in the sports equipment industry

Common sports equipment is made of metal, leather, fiber, sponge and other materials. Fiber, sponge, and leather are easy to breed mold and easily absorb moisture, thereby promoting the reproduction of mold. Metal parts are prone to electrochemical corrosion with oxygen and moisture in the air, that is, the product rusts.
For export sports equipment, the temperature difference between day and night at sea is huge, and “container rain” can easily cause damp, moldy and deformation of sports equipment packaging.

Here are some of the challenges that the sports equipment industry often faces:

Get mouldy
Foul smell
Corrosion of metal parts
Moldy and deformed packaging
Shipping box collapsed
Labels come off


It is recommended to place small packets of desiccant in the packaging of sports equipment to prevent moisture. For export sports equipment, it is recommended to hang a container-specific desiccant with high moisture absorption in the container.

Specific solutions can be found in the following products:
