Athletic Shoe Stores
The Athletic Shoe Stores industry has grown strongly amid economic recovery, with consumers willing to increase their discretionary purchases and invest in expensive athletic footwear. In addition, obesity concerns have prompted Americans to be more health-conscious and to exercise more, driving up demand for athletic shoes. Moving forward, the industry is forecast to continue its consistent growth over the next five years. While consumer spending is expected to accelerate, heightened competition from online retailers will moderate growth. Nevertheless, the industry will continue to grow amid economic recovery, with sports participation expected to rise, benefiting the industry.
This industry includes retailers that primarily sell athletic shoes, such as running shoes, basketball shoes and sneakers; these stores may also sell apparel. Stores that primarily sell specialty sports footwear, such as golf shoes, bowling shoes and spiked shoes, are included as part of the Sporting Goods Stores industry (IBISWorld report 45111). Used goods and online sales are also excluded from this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
