Major global sports events “play an imperative role in fueling demand for athletic footwear,” including the Olympics, ICC Cricket World Cup, NBA, FIFA World Cup and The Championships: Wimbledon.

“It has been observed that the market witnessed a higher growth rate during the years when Olympics (both summer and winter) took place, that is during 2012, 2014, and 2016, owing to training and participation of aspiring as well as established athletes and sportspersons,” according to Grand View Research.

“Growing enthusiasm and awareness regarding health benefits of sports and fitness activities, flourishing retail e-commerce sector worldwide, and rising levels of disposable income of consumers are estimated to be the key trends stoking market growth,” according to Grand View Research’s recently released Athletic Footwear Market Size, Share, & Trends Analysis Report By Category.
