Activewear is a clothing that increases physical performance and facilitates body movements, as it increases comfort during fitness and sports activities.

The extensive benefits that activewear offers, such as water resistance, bi-stretch function, antibacterial fabric, moisture wicking function and others, and the increasing participation of consumers in physical and fitness activities are major drivers of the global market. In addition, the female consumer base for activewear is growing due to the holistic approach of customers to sport and fitness. Similarly, the increasing acceptance of athleisure clothing as work or street clothing is driving the growth of the overall market. Additionally, the surge in disposable income and the rise in fitness concerns are significantly contributing to the growth of the market. However, fluctuating raw material costs and excessive design costs lead to high costs for the end product. This hinders sales of the product to price-sensitive customers and thus slows market growth. In addition, the presence of counterfeit brands creates safety issues and inconvenience for consumers, which hinders the growth of the market. Conversely, the increasing use of green textiles and the implementation of sustainable production methods promote the acceptance of activewear among green consumers. In addition, the increase in promotional activities such as physical activity campaigns, empowerment programs and the promotion of sportswear through sponsorship of celebrities or athletes is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the key players.

One of the key factors influencing the growth of the women’s activewear market is the dynamic fashion trends. Consumers are always eager to catch the upcoming trend and demonstrate their fashionable lifestyle to others. This race to cope with the changing fashion trend significantly influences consumers to buy the latest fashion designs, especially worn by celebrities, and on the other hand also subtle influences to ditch outdated trend clothes.

According to the World Bank, around 77.7% of the population in North America were internet users in 2016, followed by Europe and Central Asia, which account for around 72.9% of the population as internet users. In addition, access to the Internet and online clothing stores provides consumers with a platform where they can easily compare different products and prices and shop conveniently. In addition, the ease of purchasing sportswear through the online retail portal is attracting a large consumer base using the Internet, which is expected to fuel the growth of the women’s sportswear market.

Comprehensive Analysis of the Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak on Women’s Sportswear Market:

The high price and remarkable popularity of activewear brands have led to the emergence of counterfeit activewear brands. This factor limits the sales of the existing original activewear brands in these regions. Counterfeit brands are of poor quality and often create inconvenience and safety issues for customers, resulting in negative customer perceptions. Therefore, it is expected that the spread of the counterfeit industry will inhibit the growth of the women’s active clothing market.

Most women’s activewear manufacturers and retailers do not sell women’s activewear over size 12. However, in major markets such as the United States, South Africa, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia, more than a third of the female population is obese, and a much higher percentage of the female population is plus size (14 or more). The expansion of the product line to include the plus size population is expected to fuel growth in the womens activewear market.

The women’s activewear market has taken innovative steps to promote its products, which in turn is increasing the penetration rate in various regions. Motivational ads, promotional campaigns, sponsoring sporting events and competitions, and sponsoring athletic apparel are some of the key strategies driving the women’s activewear market.
