Increasing Participation in Sports

Growth in the global sports and fitness market is driven by many factors. For instance, the growing emphasis on product comfort and performance, and rising demand for high quality fashionable sportswear have played the role of catalysts influencing sports apparel manufacturers to capitalize on the available opportunities. Apart from this, factors such as changing lifestyle trends, growing popularity of sports activities, increasing participation of geriatric population in sports, rising popularity of adventure sports and travelling, and rising number of women participation in sports have significantly bolstered the demand for sports and fitness clothing in the global market

Seasonal Conditions and Frequent Change in Consumer Preference to Restraint Growth

Despite registering favorable growth, the sports and fitness clothing market has to face challenges coming from several sectors. The vulnerability of the global market to seasonal changes and ever-changing consumer preferences is a major factor that restricts the growth of the retail sports and fitness apparel industry. Apart from this, the industry is also inhibited by continually-evolving fashion trends, price sensitivity, and the prevalence of cut-throat competition among market frontrunners. Problems such as shortage of adequate labor in the industry, escalating raw material prices, and unexpected emergence of e-commerce in the global scenario also pose serious threats to the growth of the sports and fitness clothing industry. However, overall increase in the disposable income of consumers and increasing athletic participation is expected to create considerable growth opportunities for the market in forthcoming years.
