US Athletic Retail Market Report: 2009 Edition

Description:    Worldwide consumers are facing the impact of economic recession and athletic goods market has
                also been affected. However, footwear is considered to be less cyclical than apparel when consumer
                spending is under pressure. Analysts are expecting market stabilization over the next few months
                but not a quick recovery.

                The US is the largest sporting goods market in the world. A key issue facing the industry is rising
                raw material prices and labour costs in Asia, a major outsourcing destination for footwear and
                apparel manufacturers.

                The sporting goods industry is highly fragmented. The smaller and financially weak companies
                could be forced to exit the market in future. Major retailers are restricting store growth and
                reducing their presence in under performing or over-saturated markets.

                Nike and Adidas together account for the largest share of the global athletic footwear and apparel
                market. Market leader Nike has a significant lead over Adidas in footwear market while they are
                closer competitors in athletic apparel market.

                By combining SPSS Inc.’s data integration and analysis capabilities with our relevant findings, we
                have predicted the future growth of the industry. We employed various significant variables that
                have an impact on this industry and created regression models with SPSS Base to determine the
                future direction of the industry. Before deploying the regression model, the relationship between
                several independent or predictor variables and the dependent variable was analyzed using standard
                SPSS output, including charts, tables and tests.

                The report analyzes the US athletic apparel and footwear market. The competitive landscape of
                apparel and footwear market is discussed, both at manufacturer and retail level. It further analyzes
                the major trends prevalent in the athletic goods market. The report also profiles the major athletic
                goods manufacturers and retailers, focusing in-depth on their business strategies.
