Increasing Investments in Sports by Government Bodies to Bolster Growth

The increasing number of supermarkets and retail stores across the globe would help people to get access to sports shoes very easily. Besides, their willingness to pay more for novel features, such as friction regulation, waterproof quality, temperature control, and moisture management, would accelerate the sports footwear market growth in the near future. At the same time, regulatory bodies of various countries are taking initiatives to encourage people to participate in physical activities on account of their beneficial properties. Hence, they are investing huge amounts in sports. PRS India.Org, for instance, declared that the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports invested around USD 314.8 million in 2019-2020. However, the availability of counterfeit products that are pocket-friendly would hamper growth.
