Global Sportswear Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.6% During 2024-2032, Aided by Increasing Demand for Athleisure Wear and Shift Towards Healthy Lifestyle

Global Sportswear Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Sportswear Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market reached a value of around USD 313.22 billion in 2023. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% between 2024 and 2032 to reach USD 558.14 billion by 2032.

The sportswear market growth can be attributed to factors like rising participation of people in sports activities and increasing consumer spending power and desire for comfortable clothing. The surge in the popularity of global sports events like the Soccer World Cup, Olympic Games, and Cricket World Cup is a significant catalyst for the expansion of this market. A rise in health concerns, including stress and obesity, is propelling individuals towards adopting various sports and fitness activities. This, in turn, is fuelling the demand for fashionable and comfortable sportswear. Furthermore, the increasing prominence of international sportswear brands is also contributing to the heightened consumer interest in these products. The health advantages associated with fitness activities such as swimming, yoga, running, and aerobics are expected to favour the demand for sportswear.


North America is anticipated to maintain its dominant position throughout the forecast period, primarily driven by the presence of key industry giants like Nike and Adidas, which hold the largest market share for sportswear sales in North America. The region's sports culture, particularly in basketball and soccer, coupled with a growing emphasis on health and fitness, is anticipated to provide a significant impetus to the market.


In addition, the Asia Pacific region stands out as the fastest-growing market for sportswear. Countries such as China and India boast a higher proportion of their young population engaging in sports and recreational activities. This demographic trend, combined with an increasing affinity for international sportswear brands, rising disposable incomes, and a desire for enhanced lifestyle, is expected to drive substantial demand for sportswear across the Asia Pacific region.


Nike, Inc. (NYSE: NKE) stands out as one of the leading players in the global sportswear market. The company provides a diverse array of sportswear for men, women, and kids. Products provided by the company include shoes, jerseys, cleats, shorts, base layers, and others. The products are available on various e-commerce websites including, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and others.
