Athletic & Sporting Goods Manufacturing in the US

Over the past five years, the Athletic and Sporting Goods Manufacturing industry has experienced slow growth due to modest growth in the sports participation rate. As the sports participation rate rose, more individuals required sporting goods. Favorable demand from downstream markets, such as sporting goods stores, has buoyed industry revenue growth over the period. In the five years to 2021, consumers will become more health-conscious, which will stimulate demand for athletic equipment. High rates of obesity will likely translate to heightened healthcare expenditures. Therefore, the government will likely invest in schools' physical education programs to promote healthy lifestyle choices.

Establishments in this industry manufacture a range of sporting and athletic goods, including balls, bags, clubs, gloves, skates, protective equipment, boards, fishing gear and other supplies. These finished products are then marketed to wholesalers and retailers. Excluded from this industry are establishments engaged in the manufacturing of athletic apparel and footwear.

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.
