Market Highlights


The global athleisure market is projected to be valued at USD 842.03 million by 2028, recording a CAGR of 10.33% during the forecast period.The global market for athleisure is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period. The growing fitness-conscious millennial population is primarily driving the market growth. Continuous product innovation in the market owing to the rising trend for athleisure wear is also expected to contribute to the market growth during the review period. The strong influence of social media and innovative marketing strategies have created an opportunistic market for the market players during the forecast period. Moreover, the rising demand for sustainable and eco-friendly apparel and the growth of the organized retail sector in Asia-Pacific are factors creating opportunities for market players to grow and increase product sales. However, the prevalence of the unorganized sector restricts the growth of the market. Moreover, rapidly changing consumer trends impose a challenge to the market players.


The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in a lockdown across regions, border restrictions, and breakdown of transportation networks. The economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak is much higher than past outbreaks—such as the severe acute respiratory syndrome, avian flu, swine flu, bird flu, and Ebola—owing to the escalating number of infected people and the uncertainty about when the crisis is likely to come to an end. Essential goods such as sanitizers, masks, toilet paper, and bread were stocked up by customers. Most of the customer's budget was shifted to essential goods, and a major downfall in non-essential businesses was observed. As more cities went into lockdown, non-essential businesses were ordered to remain closed during the first half of the pandemic. Like all other apparel segments, the athleisure market was affected with sales dip at the initial stage of the pandemic due to forced closure of physical shops and consumers' purchase decisions in favor of essential household goods. However, gradually the market experienced increased sales owing to consumers' inclination towards yoga pants, hoodies, sweatshirts, and shorts as they work from home. During the pandemic, customers started wearing comfortable clothing. Thus, there was a surge in demand for athleisure or casual clothing designed for workouts and everyday wear from the end of 2020. However, despite the growing demand for athleisure, several factors are hampering the normal market growth during the pandemic. The factors which negatively impacted the sales of the athleisure market during the pandemic are stated below. However, with the situation getting back to normal, the demand for athleisure products is expected to experience exponential growth.
