Political Events Effect Jigsaw Mats Pricing

It is hard to believe that something that happens half a world away could effect jigsaw mats pricing in Australia. Just as throwing a stone on a lake can have a ripple effect so can the political gyrations in another country have an effect on what happens right here. When there is a major event overseas it inevitable effects the markets and all the markets are intertwined. That explains why the ASX will go down after a major down turn in the Dow Jones or Nasdaq. So it is not inconceivable that such an effect can be had on the market for jigsaw mats or MMA mats.

In Europe yesterday the markets were hit with the news that Giuseppe Conte, Italy’s prime minister, resigned after a rival tabled a no-confidence vote against him and called for new elections. With the Northern League  surging in the polls, fresh elections could be held if a new coalition government cannot be formed. The political turmoil in the Eurozone’s 3rd largest economy (Italy)  could further dent fragile confidence in the European economy. The European block is the world’s largest economy so should things turn sour there then you can bet your bottom line that that will reverberate throughout the entire world. Even the market for jigsaw mats and MMA mats.

So what can we expect the effect to be on jigsaw mats and MMA mats? Well as with all martial arts mats, jigsaw mats are produced using closed cell EVA. This is why they are also often referred to as EVA Mats. Should world events have an effect on commodities then they will also have an effect on EVA mats as the material used to make the mats is a tradable commodity. So if the markets somehow effect the supply chains, such as Trumps trade war with China, then it is not hard to imagine the effect it would have on jigsaw mats and MMA mats. So when you hear of something happening in Italy like political turmoil, or protect in Hong Kong, then logically your thought should focus on what effect those events might have on markets that you rely on.

Some like Direct Mats rely heavily on the markets for the raw materials used to make jigsaw mats and MMA mats. So it is only natural that they would keep track of these events to understand how they might effect their business and give them a chance to plan ahead.

Jigsaw Mat Market Watch

The Reserve Bank in their infinite wisdom cut interest rates by another quarter percent. Te initial reaction of the markets was to push the AUD lower.  The losses of Monday and Tuesday recovered and the AUD went though 0.7030 which now seems to be a point of resistance. Rallies in global stock markets drove the American indices to all-time highs, although one point of warning is that stock markets peak three to six months after the Fed’s first rate cut of an easing cycle.

In other news the Australian economic data was encouraging as the country recorded its highest ever trade surplus. Export values increased by 6% and imports by 1%. The increase in overall trade will be a boon to GDP. It is strange that even in face of record trade surpluses the economy needs a boast through lower interest rates. Either the government is doing something wrong or we need to rip out even more iron ore out of the ground.

Luckily for the price of jigsaw mats the lift in the AUD is supporting the current price structure. It was feared that any further decline in the price of the AUD would impact jigsaw mat pricing. As it is the price of jigsaw mats and EVA mats is current stable and should remain so in the distant future. This is great because EVA mats have never been more popular then they are right now. They continue to fly out the door at an unprecedented rate. With any luck this should be our biggest year ever for EVA mats and jigsaw mats.

4 Reasons Why EVA Jigsaw Mats are Perfect for Martial Arts

Martial arts are among the most popular sports in the world. Being able to protect yourself in a dangerous situation is exactly what lures many people to martial arts. On top of that, they will teach you discipline and will make you more humble, which are qualities that everyone should strive to have. If your gym offers martial arts classes, then you’ll need appropriate gym mats in order to ensure the safety of the participants. Similarly, if you have a garage gym, it’s imperative that you find good mats to avoid any potential physical risks.

There are a few different types of gym mats available on the market today, but EVA jigsaw mats are most likely the best you’ll find. Here are some of the main advantages of EVA jigsaw mats.

Stability

In order to practice martial arts properly, you’ll need to have good support when upright. Otherwise, you will waste a lot of energy on trying to maintain control. EVA jigsaw mats are made with non-porous, closed-cell EVA foam, which makes them more rigid than other mats, thus providing more support.

Price

The cost of gym mats is extremely important to most people, since both owners of independent clubs and home users usually don’t always have a big budget. Even though both MMA mats and vinyl tatami mats are made using quality materials, they can be very pricey, thus making them unattainable for people who’re on a budget. On the other hand, EVA jigsaw mats are quite affordable. They come in a variety of thicknesses, but people usually choose between 20mm and 40mm thick mats.

The 20mm floor mats are cheaper and they’re commonly used in upright forms of martial arts like kick boxing, taekwondo, and karate. On the other hand, the 40mm mats are better for floor-based martial arts like judo and wrestling. Before you decide to buy new mats, make sure to check exactly what thickness suits you best.

The fact that you’re able to choose exactly how thick you want your gym mats to be is yet another advantage of the EVA jigsaw mats. Vinyl tatami mats are usually found only in 40mm thickness, which means that you wouldn’t exactly be suitable for upright forms of martial arts.

They’re Portable

One of the best things about EVA jigsaw mats is how light they are. This will make it easier for you to transport them from one place to another. They’re easy to lift, so you will have no problem storing them wherever you choose to. On the other hand, if you go with vinyl mats, you will have difficulty moving them from place to place, since they’re made out of heavy materials.

Durability

When buying gym mats, you want a product that is going to remain in good condition for a long time. Thankfully, EVA jigsaw mats are made from ethylene vinyl acetate, which is an elastomeric polymer that is known for its durability and resilience.
