Monday, Nov 06, 2017

Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global football equipment market report from 2017-2021. This market research report also lists nine other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global football equipment market is marked by the presence of well-established vendors that have a substantial presence in the market apart from their predominant brand equity. The vendors have established operations in multiple geographies and are popular among end-consumers with effective penetration levels. The key players in the global football equipment market include Adidas Group, Nike, and Lotto Sport, which have been active in this space and have created a niche for themselves over the years. The market is witnessing an increase in the number of new product innovations and launches. Although vendors have relatively high penetration in the Western markets, such as the Americas and Europe, a shift of focus is expected in the developing markets of APAC during the forecast period.

According to Shikha Kaushik, a lead analyst at Technavio for outdoor gear research, “The introduction of new and innovative products will help prominent leaders to engage and provide customers with a wide variety of products. Most vendors are focusing on providing unique products in terms of service, quality, and price. The development of new products is heavily dependent on financial investments both in the long-term and short-term plans.”
