The sportswear market: an industry experiencing rapid growth

The sportswear market has seen unprecedented growth in recent years. In 2022, the size of the global sportswear market was valued at 319.4 billion U.S. dollars, forecasted to surge to over 450 billion dollars by 2028. 

In particular, this rapidly growing industry is witnessing a rise of athleisure fashion. Consequently, with the growing consciousness around health of young consumers, sportswear brands continue to innovate and diversify their offering.

The ‘big ten’ activewear brands continue to drive the sportswear industry. Indeed, since 2020, Nike has seen a growth of 14%, while Lululemon grew by as much as 60% by MIV®.

And it isn’t just activewear brands that continue to grow. Heritage brands like Lacoste are strengthening their position in the market by tapping into Gen Z consumer needs to accelerate their brand offering. While luxury brands like Dior, Versace and Gucci are seizing the opportunity to appeal to new audiences via sportswear capsule collections and sustainable activewear lines. 

As the sportswear sector continues to grow and evolve, undeniably, it's important to understand the latest trends and consumer demands.
