The increased awareness of fitness among consumers and the rapid increase in disposable income per capita is expected to stimulate the demand for sports equipment and clothing. In addition, the trend of sportswear among young sports fans and the advancement in the formulation of sports equipment are fueling the growth of the market. However, the declining participation of the younger generation in sports activities is hampering the growth of the market. In addition, increasing consumer interest in non-sporting leisure activities such as movies, music concerts, virtual games and others is slowing the growth of the market. Conversely, increasing the participation of various organizations in donating such equipment and clothing to emerging sports fans and athletes with low financial resources is expected to provide a lucrative opportunity for the market. For example, Sports Gift, Let’s Play It Forward, Global Sports Foundation, and One World Play Project are some of the well-known organizations that support the process of donating sports equipment. Thus, the increase in the distribution of sports equipment and clothing through the online retail platform is expected to drive the growth of the market in the near future.

The other team sports segment is expected to dominate the sports equipment and clothing market during the forecast period, owing to the increase in government and NGO initiatives to raise awareness of the sport. However, the fitness segment is expected to gain the attention of very fitness-conscious consumers.
