Reports and data

The growing number of sports and several other outdoor adventures such as hiking, cycling, etc. drive market growth.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, August 5, 2022 / — The Global functional clothing market is expected to reach $519.04 billion by 2027, according to a new report from Reports and Data. Rising trend in health and wellness is one of the major influencing factors that propelled the demand for explicit sportswear or sporting goods of various types of clothing. Consumers all over the world have taken their fitness business seriously by indulging in multiple sports and fitness activities. The growing number of sports and several other outdoor adventures such as hiking, cycling, etc. drive market growth. Rapid growth in feature-specific apparel and footwear, along with increasing youth participation rates in various sports activities, are some of the major factors expected to drive the growth of the market.

Additionally, a growing health awareness among individuals and a growing willingness to perform training activities that help combat different ailments are expected to fuel growth. Compression innovation is one of the most commonly implemented technologies in workout apparel, shoes and socks. Applying controlled surface pressure to different parts of the body accelerates blood flow, increases oxygen delivery to exercised muscles and improves their efficiency. A balance of these factors allows a person to train longer at a higher pace.

A major limiting factor in the market is the high price of garments owing to the use of modern technologies to lighten garments and improve their durability. In addition, product duplicity, which decreases the market demand for the original brand, is expected to act as a restraining factor in the global market in the coming years.

The impact of COVID-19:
The outbreak has raised concerns about the value of hygiene and health care. The market has seen a decline over the weeks, which could continue over the next few months. This pandemic has affected the Asia-Pacific region the most, with China being at the center of the outbreak. Most initiatives have been temporarily halted in several countries. Production, as well as supply, has been suspended, causing losses to manufacturers, dealers as well as consumers. The market may face a downside for the period. Yet, with a growing health problem, the demand would hit the ceiling as soon as there was a change in the condition.
