Research and Markets: Sports Clothing & Footwear Market Update 2014

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fmfhcl/sports_clothing) has announced the addition of the "Sports Clothing & Footwear Market Update 2014" report to their offering.

This market update examines the UK market for sports clothing and footwear, often referred to as sportswear. The main focus of the report is on the past 5-year period between 2009 and 2013, discussing trends, issues and competitors within the industry, as well as providing a valuation of the market in terms of the two main sectors of clothing and footwear, with a further breakdown in relation to sportswear for different sports and activities. This report estimates that in 2013, the market witnessed annual growth in value at a significant rate of 8.8%.

The sportswear market is largely dominated by a small number of global sports brands, including market leaders Nike and Adidas, which have a widespread, international presence. Yet the market is becoming increasingly saturated and fragmented as several brands and retailers which focus mainly on fashion are entering the marketplace. Fashion and sportswear have been interrelated industries for some time now, with sports brands often being synonymous with different subcultures in society. However, the sportswear market has benefitted in recent years from its influence over the catwalk, with fashion designers imitating the sports brands with their own-brand couture trainers and the current fashion statement of 'sports luxe' style.
