Athletic footwear refers to shoes that are designed for sports and other outdoor activities. People of all ages are wearing these as casual and fashion footwear.

Athletic footwear is a generic term for shoes that are designed to be worn while participating in sports.

Furthermore, approximately 1.5 million Australians participate in cricket programs or competitions.

Nike, Inc., Adidas AG, Skechers USA, Inc., and New Balance Athletics, Inc. are among the market’s leading players, focused on creating revolutionary technologies to improve the stability and comfort of sports shoes.

The global athletic footwear market has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the closure of key distribution routes around the world in an attempt to limit the spread of coronavirus, the COVID-19 pandemic had a substantial impact on the supermarkets/hypermarkets category.

Market Growth Factors:

The rise in the number of Government initiatives

Consumers” expanding purchasing power and disposable incomes have become crucial trends in the industry. As people’s income levels rise, they’re more willing to pay more for certain performance qualities including waterproofing, moisture management, temperature control, and friction regulation.

Moreover, the growing number of different retail locations, hypermarkets, and supermarkets is expected to impact the market in the upcoming years. Global, regional, and municipal governments are focusing on health and developing innovative tactics to raise people’s attention to the benefits of physical activity. Several wealthy countries” government bodies are continually working to build enticing healthcare offers. This will generate a higher demand for athletic footwear at the same time, as a large section of the population will be interested in sports and fitness activities.

Increasing participation in sports and physical activities

The global market is characterized by the rising prevalence of chronic diseases due to a lack of activity and a growing health-conscious population, particularly in metropolitan areas. In addition, sports shoe demand is expected to rise as more emerging countries focus on creating gyms and sports infrastructure. According to the 2019 International Health & Fitness Association Report, the global fitness club membership grew by 183 million people. In recent years, there has been an increased sports involvement by children and teenagers.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Availability of low-cost local products

The manufacturers in the market is expected to witness many challenges including a lack of sports possibilities and a reduced penetration of high-cost sports footwear in rural areas and low-income countries. In addition, the availability of low-cost counterfeit products, as well as the rise of various small-scale market participants, has created a threat to high-priced branded footwear. Moreover, there are many local players in many countries who are offering similar types of shoes at low-cost in order to entice young consumers, thereby posing a big challenge for the established industry players.
