Online PR News – 13-November-2009 – – "Worldwide consumers are facing the impact of economic recession and athletic goods market has also been affected. However, footwear is considered to be less cyclical than apparel when consumer spending is under pressure. Analysts are expecting market stabilization over the next few months but not a quick recovery.

The US is the largest sporting goods market in the world. A key issue facing the industry is rising raw material prices and labour costs in Asia – a major outsourcing destination for footwear and apparel manufacturers.

The sporting goods industry is highly fragmented. The smaller and financially weak companies could be forced to exit the market in future. Major retailers are restricting store growth and reducing their presence in underperforming or over-saturated markets.

Nike and Adidas together account for the largest share of the global athletic footwear and apparel market. Market leader Nike has a significant lead over Adidas in footwear market while they are closer competitors in athletic apparel market.
