The term athletic footwear refers to shoes designed for sport and other outdoor activities. Athletic shoes are those for running, basketball, tennis, and others, but they usually exclude shoes for sports such as football (soccer) and rugby. Rubber soles typically accompany shoes made of flexible material. The original design of athletic shoes was simple, but manufacturers have since adapted them for numerous sports. The use of athletic shoes has also expanded to the casual market, and young people are especially fond of them. The equipment and clothing that an athlete uses are part of their gear, including athletic footwear. There are specific levels of cushioning, flexibility, stability, traction, and durability in athletic shoes. A cushion reduces the force of impact.
Factors Influencing Market Growth
An increasing awareness regarding the health benefits of sports and fitness activities that lowers the risk of diseases such as obesity, depression, diabetes, and others is forecast to fuel the growth of the global athletic footwear market.
During the forecast period, the changing lifestyles of consumers, the rise in disposable income, and the growth of the retail e-commerce industry in international markets will all contribute to the global market's growth.
As technology advances, new and innovative shoes become available, and people become aware of the importance of wearing the correct type of shoes to prevent muscle injuries, leg injuries, and many others, there is a growing demand for the athletic footwear market.
The popularity of branded athletic footwear among youngsters also influences the market's growth.
The price of raw materials and the prevalence of fake and brand-copied athletic footwear products may slow down the market's growth.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19
The COVID-19 outbreak disrupted production activities worldwide, affecting footwear production. The lack of consumer purchases caused by store closures had slowed manufacturing in 2020. Global footwear consumption fell as a result of COVID-19. The postponement of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo and a steep decline in sports activities have directly impacted the athlete footwear industry.
The pandemic has thus compelled footwear companies to turn their attention to e-commerce channels. The trend will likely outline the global athletic footwear market outlook during the forecast period.
The Asia Pacific region accounted for the highest shipment volume in the global athlete footwear market and is forecast to continue dominating during the forecast period. The primary reason for this is the large population base and lower average selling price of athletic footwear in the region than in developed economies such as the U.K. and the U.S.
