Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Online Sports Retailing Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global online sports retailing market: Academy Sports + Outdoors, Amazon.com, Alibaba.com, DICK's Sporting Goods, and Walmart.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Adidas, ASICS, Columbia Sportwear, MIZUNO, Nike, PUMA, and Under Armour.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is mobile commerce and network marketing. The increasing emphasis on mobile commerce is mainly driven by two things: millions of consumers are purchasing new phones and from the retailers end they are creating more opportunities for the buyers to shop. Few of the major retailers such as Amazon, Flipkart, and Alibaba have their own mobile applications.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rise in online spending and smartphone penetration. In the US, an increase in the internet penetration has been a key driver for the growth of the online sports retailing market. As of June 2015, 280.7 million people in the US were internet users, and this number is the third-largest globally, after China and India. As of January 2016, North America recorded the highest in terms of internet penetration with a share of 87.5%. It was followed by Western Europe with 82.5% share and Eastern Europe with 63.5% share.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high price. The high price of sports equipment is one of the major challenges that is hindering the growth of the global online sports retailing market. The cost of sports equipment offered by global vendors is very high, which might restrict sales in the coming years. Most end-users in developing regions are reluctant to use branded sports equipment because of their high cost, which in turn affects the overall revenue of the global market.
