Report Summary

“The European sports retail market recovered strongly in 2021 across the five leading economies in Europe as it benefitted from fewer restrictions and also investment made in expanding online operations in response to the pandemic store closures. Going forwards, as a discretionary spending area, the cost of living crisis could potentially hold back sales. Nonetheless, emerging trends and shifts in consumer behaviour, such as growing sustainability awareness, the rising popularity of second hand, experiential in-store retailing, and increasing tech usage offer good opportunities for retailers.”

– Utku Tansel, European Retail Analyst

This Report looks at the following areas:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on the sports goods retailing sector and how it is recovering from this
  • The impact of rising living costs on European consumers and how this is affecting the sports goods retailing sector
  • The winners and losers in the sports goods retailing sector as we emerge into the post-COVID recovery phase
  • How people shop for sports goods and which retailers they use
  • Interest in sports goods innovations among sports goods buyers
  • The development of the online channel within the sports goods category and the boost given to it by the COVID-19 outbreak
