The sporting goods industry in the United States - additional information

In the past few decades, sports, as a way to stay in shape, to maintain health or simply as a pleasant free-time activity, have become more and more an integral part of our everyday lives. Ever-improving technologies, such as fitness trackers or smart fabrics, and new sport trends appearing frequently, along with a growing demand for all types of sports, have helped expand the sporting goods industry to an unprecedented degree. In 2014, consumers spent a forecasted 63.6 billion U.S. dollars on sporting goods, in the United States alone.

The online sector has become a popular channel of distribution for sporting goods, as sales made on the internet amounted to almost 7.9 billion U.S. dollars in 2013. However, sporting goods stores are still the most popular outlets for buying athletic gear, with sales in such shops in the United States amounting to almost 45 billion U.S. dollars in 2013. Based on retail sales, the leading U.S. sporting goods store chain in the United States is Dick’s Sporting Goods, which generated sales of over 6.2 billion U.S. dollars and announced a gross profit of almost 2 billion U.S. dollars in 2013. Sports Authority and Cabela’s have placed second and third, with retail sales worth 3.5 and 3.03 billion U.S. dollars respectively.

Some of the most popular sporting goods brands in the United States are Nike and Adidas, which are also the most dominant sportswear and sporting goods companies worldwide, with combined revenues amounting to almost 50 billion U.S. dollars in 2013/2014. In a recent survey regarding sports brand awareness in the United States, Nike placed first, followed by Adidas, Reebok/RBK and Puma, both among male and female respondents.
