Women commonly use sports wearables during sports tournaments, athletics and other activities that help them to provide a high level of comfort and flexibility. Women prefer a variety of sports wearables based on the type of sports played by them and hence rising demand for the global sports industry fuels the consumption of the active sports wears among them.
