The global women’s sportswear and swimwear market size is estimated to be USD 199.73 billion by 2028 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2022 to 2028.

This growth is due to factors such as the increasing number of sports participants, increasing per capita income and purchasing power. In addition, the increasing number of global and regional competitions contributes to the growth of this market. Additionally, apparel manufacturers are using automatic machines to increase production while trying to reduce the associated costs.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led to a global lockdown and people in different countries were forced to stay at home to stop further spread. Numerous sporting events organized at national, regional or global level have been canceled worldwide. This led to a decline in sales of sportswear and swimwear. Demand for such products has been reduced and supply chains have been completely disrupted, negatively impacting the market.

The changing fashion trends are leading to growing consumer awareness of swimwear and sportswear, which is driving the market growth. Moreover, the usage of e-commerce and social network sites among the young population has been increasing rapidly across the world, which is making a major impact on the market during the forecast period. Due to the above factors, sportswear and swimwear are enjoying great popularity thereby driving the growth of the overall market.

The offline sales channel contributed to a larger market share of over 75% in 2021. The offline channel includes exclusive stores, hypermarkets and supermarkets, and retail outlets. Manufacturers and marketers use the traditional retail channel to increase sales. The segment includes organized retail channels that are more customer-centric and provide better services by selling a variety of garments directly to end consumers.
