The golf shafts industry is highly competitive, technologically-driven and innovative. Current estimates place the value of the golf shaft market globally at about $650 million per annum and this figure is expected to rise to more than $750 million over the next decade. For hundreds of years golf was played with hickory shafts but nowadays shafts come in a variety of materials, including steel, graphite and titanium. Different weights, stiffness options and bend-points are available for drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons and putters. Players with fast swing speeds require stiff, low-torque shafts to retain control of the golf ball whereas clubs for women and kids typically have softer, more flexible shafts to help get the ball airborne. Major brands on the golf shaft market include True Temper, Aldila, Aerotech, Fujikura and Grafalloy. Other brands such as KBS, Nippon Shaft, Graphite Design, Project X, Mitsubishi, Matrix and Harrison are also popular. Many golfers, particularly professionals, low-handicap amateurs and players who compete in long driving events, like to experiment by changing shafts themselves. Components companies facilitate this by providing custom shafts, shaft extractors, shafting beads, epoxy, grips and grip solvents.
