The report on India sports apparel market is segmented based on product type, end user, distribution channels, region and company. Based on distribution channel, the segments are further categorized into exclusive stores, supermarket/hypermarket, multi-branded stores, online, and others.

Indian economy was widely affected by the pandemic that set foot in early FY2020 and India sports apparel market was not untouched. Manufacturers of sports apparels have incurred huge financial losses due to the disruption of supply chain network across the country. Due to the lockdown restrictions, interstate travel and logistics were impacted, which are needed in order to maintain an efficient supply chain in the sports apparel industry. Moreover, while observing the lockdown, consumers were not able to visit multiple distribution channels and could only order the products online. However, after observing a setback, sports apparel market has observed a sharp rise in the demand for sports apparels in India in the post lockdown period as the government uplifted the restrictions imposed during the lockdown, following which more and more people have started engaging in physical activities in order to remain fit and active and decrease the possibility of illness. Furthermore, increasing popularity for apparels by Indian icons and preference of the population towards these icons and their suggestions for respective brands, drives the sports apparel market growth as well.

“Growing middle class population base in Tier II & Tier III cities in the country has the potential to become a major demand generator for sports apparels in India. Various companies have increased their presence in these cities by offering their products either through exclusive retailers or multi-branded retail outlets and online channels. Share of organized retail in these cities is currently low, which creates an opportunity for major organized brands to enhance their presence by offering products either in premium or economy range, to attract the middle class population in these cities. Moreover, India’s Tier II & III cities mainly comprise middle class and lower middle class population. In addition, by FY2025-2026, number of middle class households in the country is expected to double and reach 113 million. This indicates significant opportunities for sportswear companies to address the demand during the forecast period.”  said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm.
