The United States athletic apparel market is the world’s largest Sportswear market, accounting for 41% of total sales, followed by the European Union, which accounts for about 38% of total sporting apparel turnover.
There is a stiff competition among the sportswear brands that control a majority of the share of this market. These companies spend heavily on innovation and sponsorship events which act as major barriers for the new entrants to this industry.
Aruvian's R'search analyzes The Sportswear Industry in United States in Michael Porter’s Five Forces Analysis. It uses concepts developed in Industrial Organization (IO) economics to derive five forces that determine the competitive intensity and therefore attractiveness of a market. Porter referred to these forces as the microenvironment, to contrast it with the more general term macro-environment. They consist of those forces close to a company that affect its ability to serve its customers and make a profit. A change in any of the forces normally requires a company to re-assess the marketplace.
