Market Overview 

Activewear is apparel, footwear, and accessories meant for sports and physical activities such as sprinting, yoga, bicycle riding, and other sports. Activewear comprises lightweight, breathable fabrics that allow for freedom of movement and comfort when exercising. With characteristics such as moisture-wicking, temperature management, and compression, these clothing are particularly intended to give utility and performance. Sports bras, leggings, shorts, tank tops, t-shirts, and jackets are examples of activewear apparel. In recent years, the sportswear industry has grown significantly, with an emphasis on efficiency, environmental responsibility, and aesthetics. 

Rise in awareness of the benefits of participating in sports activities, such as better focus and problem-solving ability, has increased spending on fitness and sports apparel and footwear for youngsters. Furthermore, the educational systems of many nations across the world have contributed to the expansion of fitness business by recognizing the advantages of physical activities and incorporating them into the school curriculum. Fitness, health, and sports education initiatives at educational institutions have improved youth engagement and interest in fitness and sports activities. Furthermore, state-level, national-level, and international-level competitions held by various governments around the world have encouraged participation and developed interest in sports activities among this population, which is expected to increase purchasing of sports and fitness-related products. Thus, the rise in fitness and sports awareness among the younger population has fueled the activewear market opportunity for growth. 

The introduction of e-sports has grabbed youth and acquired enormous popularity globally in recent years. Access to digital gadgets, widespread internet penetration, and increased use of social media platforms have all boosted e-sports. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased participation in e-sports, which has improved its attractiveness among millennials. Digital media and video games are pushing people all around the world to live sedentary lifestyles. Spending lengthy periods of time sitting and playing video games or consuming digital information discourages individuals from participating in and engaging in physical exercise.The growing popularity of e-sports has pushed young people to pursue it as a job, pastime, and source of pleasure. As a result, the growing popularity of e-sports poses a significant threat to outdoor sports such as tennis and football. The growing popularity of e-sports causes a decline in young engagement in sports and physical fitness activities, which has a negative impact on the activewear market growth. As a result, the increase in acceptance of e-sports amongst youth globally is expected to hinder the growth of the activewear market throughout the forecast period.
