Alarming rise in the prevalence of obesity, especially in urban areas, supplements the growth of the fitness and athletic equipment market. A startling increase was witnessed in the number of obese people worldwide. According to WHO, over 340 million children and adolescents aged 5–19 were overweight or obese in 2016. Obesity is associated with a number of health issues such as sudden cardiac arrest, hypertension, hypotension, and diabetes. Therefore, to lose weight, reduce stress, and improve blood circulation, obese people tend to use fitness and sports equipment thus driving global athletic equipment and footwear market demand.

Engaged stakeholders in the athletic equipment and footwear industry use a wide variety of marketing strategies to increase their product penetration among consumers. These strategies include celebrity endorsements, organizing events, and social media marketing. Furthermore, leading players in the industry are now heavily investing in digital platforms to market their products. In addition, leading players in the fitness industry are conducting live streaming of online workouts to promote their brands to target audience. For instance, Technogym—a company specializing in equipment manufacturing and digital technologies for fitness, sport, and health—introduced the new TECHNOGYM LIVE digital platform offering end users with fitness sessions at home. Furthermore, leading players in the industry are integrating their platforms to offer additional training experiences such as group cycling, running, rowing, and boxing. Investments in such group activities have resulted in their widespread promotions, which are likely to drive the athletic equipment and footwear market expansion in the years to come by.

For instance, the Tokyo Summer Olympic and Paralympic games were cancelled due to this global health crisis, which hampered the growth of the market. Moreover, athletic equipment and footwear market was highly impacted across the world, as the outbreak has led to the closure of sports complexes, state sports activities, gyms, fitness studios, parks, and school & colleges. This further led to decline in participation in regular physical or sporting activities, which, in turn, hampered the athletic equipment and footwear market demand.
