Global Athleisure Market is expected to record a positive CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period (2022-2028) and is expected to reach approximately US$ 450 billion by 2028.

An important factor influencing the market demand is an increase in consumer fitness and health consciousness, which is fueling the desire for stylish and comfortable clothing and is expected to drive the growth of the Athleisure Market.

Threats from counterfeit goods and the high cost of athleisure products limit the market growth.

The athleisure market is experiencing hurdles due to the presence of counterfeit products in the market that is sold at a similar or even lower price and also resemble similar in appearance, texture, and even brand logo. It becomes difficult for consumers to differentiate between original and counterfeit products and thus hampers the sales of the original product sellers.

However, the resemblance in appearance does not suffice for the quality equivalent of the original athleisure products in turn giving the wrong impression and limiting the growth potential. In some situations, the use of counterfeit products has caused several skin-related infections.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of manufacturing facilities and halted the distribution and production sides of the Athleisure Market. Due to the imposed lockdown, the logistics and transportation sector also stalled market growth. Access to athleisure products has been restricted by the closure of supermarkets, hypermarkets, specialty shops, and other distribution facilities.

The relaxation of lockdown limitations caused the transportation and trade industry to rebound in the second half of 2020, which fueled the growth of the athleisure market. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic’s rise in e-popularity commerce had a favorable effect on the market.
