The licensed sporting goods market is expected to exceed

Dublin, Ireland, Aug. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The latest information released by Fact.MR predicts licensed sporting goods sales will likely propel at a CAGR of 7% from 2021 to 2031, reaching $59 billion US by the end of the aforementioned forecast period. The demand is mainly dependent on the growing popularity of commercial sports activities in recent years.

The market experienced a positive slope between 2016 and 2020, registering a CAGR of 6%. Sales have contracted significantly during the novel coronavirus pandemic as major sporting events have been postponed or canceled attributed to the imposition of a global lockdown. However, from the fourth quarter of 2020, restrictions eased, as vaccination campaigns to inoculate populations accelerated.

New and improved licensed products are introduced to the market. Recently, Nike introduced jerseys with tracking chips that collect data such as how many meters an athlete has walked, what activities they have performed, and various other things. After sports activity, athletes can see the data on a smartphone, tablet or computer and can use it to perform better in the future.
