Report Summary

Download 2024 Global Sports Goods Report in which we give a comprehensive overview of this dynamic sector through RetailX research, detailed graphics and exclusive case-studies.

While the global sports goods market is dominated by enormous, well-known brands, we also discuss the wealth of localised players that attract a lot of sales and how they are utilising new channels to grow and reach their target customers.

Inside the report we answer the most important questions about how shoppers are buying differently, as well as to reveal the main factors driving this change, what we might expect in the future and how retailers and brands can plan for that.
