Demand for indoor sportswear and fitness apparel is robust thanks to rising levels of participation in individual and team sports and fitness activities. Although consumer spending has been restrained in many parts of the developed world, demand has been buoyed by sharp increases in disposable incomes in key economies in the developing world, along with major advances in fabric technology. Spending on such activities is also being encouraged by companies developing sophisticated wearable systems which are compatible with various devices, such as smartphones and tablets, and which make physical exercise a more enjoyable, rewarding and engaging experience.

Participation in sports and fitness activities is likely to increase with greater awareness of the benefits of physical exercise -- indoor and out -- and greater emphasis on healthy living. This report provides a wealth of information, insight and analysis of the sportswear market and participation in indoor sports and fitness activities, as well as the properties of indoor sportswear, and the fibres and fabrics used to manufacture it. It also features information on wearable technology in indoor sports and fitness activities. Furthermore, the report presents examples of product innovations in the indoor sportswear market and provides an outlook for the future.
