An Overview of the Sportswear Market in Germany

The sportswear market in Germany has demonstrated resilience in spite of escalating prices. Consumers continue to spend on active wear as the trend towards healthy lifestyles garners continued interest.

At the upper end of the market, well-known brands can capitalise on branded sportswear while the mass market will continue to grow following the outdoor boom that started at the end of the pandemic. In 2023, sportswear Germany will continue to grow, albeit at a slower rate.

Sportswear Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • The Effect of Inflation on Sportswear Companies in Germany: The cost of living crisis will lead some to switch to cheaper sportswear or to postpone their purchases. About half of 16 to 34-year-olds have already switched to cheaper brands even though two thirds of that group prefer well-known sports labels. However, sport is an important factor for a healthy life and mind – this will protect the sector from too much down trading as consumers put more emphasis on a holistic lifestyle.
  • Sportswear Trends in Germany: The lines between fashion and sportswear continue to blur with 24% of Germans buying sportswear in the past year, not for exercising, but to wear in daily life.
  • Sportswear Germany & Sustainability: Introducing new and sustainable fabrics and technologies by updating sportswear basics with materials that are recycled or made from plants will resonate with consumers. Brands can further invest in innovations that increase sustainability as a step towards a circular industry, including fully recyclable and innovative fabrics, or by offering repairs.

Germany Sportswear Market Forecast

  • New technology will lead to smart sportswear with wellness benefits like cooling properties, and the further extension of sport into virtual worlds.
