Sportswear and footwear have experienced upgradations in their features over the years. In addition, athletic equipment and footwear market players are investing heavily in R&D to provide innovative as well as improved sportswear and footwear in the market. For instance, manufacturers in the market are developing Internet of Things-embedded sport shoes, which enable athletes to monitor, track, and analyze timing, pace, distance, and heart rate, and thus improve their performance, making these products more popular among sports enthusiasts. For instance, Adidas launched electronic-enabled shoes (smart shoes) that exhibit shock-absorbing feature depending on body weight, running style, speed, and running surface. These shoes use a magnetic sensing system that measures cushioning level, adjusted via digital signal processor, which controls motor-driven cable system. This, in turn, is likely to drive the athletic equipment and footwear market expansion in the upcoming year.

However, the availability of counterfeit products is a key factor that restrains the market growth. This is attributed to the fact that these products do not comply with the guidelines outlined by the regulatory bodies across the globe. As per a study by the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM), one of the European Union’s largest intellectual property agencies, the amount of total revenue lost due to counterfeiting of sports equipment is about 6.5% of the total sales across the EU-28. Availability of such counterfeit products leads to loss of job creation, which is expected to be created in the absence of these products. However, easy availability of such products on online portals and increase in accessibility & convenience of purchasing these products through the internet have paved a way for these products into the athletic equipment and footwear market.

Nevertheless, the number of women competing in sports has increased significantly over the last three decades. In addition, women participation in sports across the world has presently become one of the macro trends now in the sport industry.

Similar trends have been witnessed across myriad of sports with increased participation of women across countries. Engaged players in the industry can target new demographic niche to capture lucrative opportunities arising in the global athletic equipment and footwear market.
