The global sports market grew from $486.61 billion in 2022 to $512.14 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The sports market is expected to grow to $623.63 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 5.0%.

The market is expected to benefit from the steady economic growth forecasted for many developed and developing countries. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) stated that the global real GDP growth was 3.7% in 2019 and 2020 and 3.6% from 2021 to 2023. Recovering commodity prices are further expected to be a significant factor driving economic growth. The US economy is expected to register stable growth during the forecast period. Additionally, emerging markets are expected to continue to grow slightly faster than developed markets in the forecast period. For instance, India’s GDP grew at 8.7% in 2021-22, up by 1.5% compared to 2019-20, whereas China registered a GDP growth of 8.1% in 2021. This continued economic growth is expected to drive the demand for sports.

The outbreak of COVID-19 disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the sports market in 2020 as governments globally imposed lockdowns and restricted domestic and international travel limiting the need for services offered by these establishments.COVID-19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing.

The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China, and spread globally including Western Europe, North America, and Asia.Steps by national governments to contain the transmission have resulted in the closure of recreational facilities with countries entering a state of ’lockdown’ and the outbreak hurt businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021.

However, it is expected that the sports market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.
