Vancouver, British Columbia, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global sports technology market is projected to reach a market size of USD 40.22 Billion by 2028, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. This growth can be attributed to increasing adoption of advanced technologies for a range of applications in the world of sports. The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown has severely impacted the global sports industry as all sporting events and stadiums remained under lockdown. A vast majority of athletes and players have suffered due to inability to train and stay in top shape.

As a result, 2021 is a pivotal year for athletes, broadcasters, teams, and fans around the globe, and taking a more technologically advanced approach in all fields of sports is projected to be the way forward. Increasing utilization of Virtual Reality (VR) by athletes and professional sports teams for improving training and performance is a key factor boosting growth of the sports technology market. Rising sales of wearable sports and fitness devices is expected to contribute significantly to revenue growth of the sports technology market.

Various benefits offered by wearable devices used by professional athletes such as workout injury prevention, player safety assessment tools, and metrics of physical conditioning and performance are some key factors driving rising preference, which is supporting growth of the market to a significant extent currently. Adoption of new and emerging technologies in the sports industry such as big data analytics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud services, wearables, and drones has been increasing substantially in the recent past.

Rising demand for player monitoring devices that provide data on speed and distance covered by each player on the field to the service coaches is projected to boost revenue growth of the market during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of wearable solutions such as wristband devices, sensor embedded equipment, and smart clothing using woven technology or printed electronic materials is also contributing to market revenue growth. Adoption of smart technologies for better management of stadium infrastructure has been rising with steadily increasing deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in the sports industry.

High initial investment for implementation of advanced technologies in the sports industry is a key factor expected to restrain growth of the sports technology market to a certain extent. Moreover, the risk of technical difficulties and complexities involved in advanced technologies is projected to hamper demand for sports technology solutions to a certain extent during the forecast period.
