The Global Sports Technology Market size is expected to be worth around USD 79.2 Billion by 2032 from USD 15.9 Billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 17.90% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2032.
The demand for data-driven decision-making and operations, as well as the number of sports events, is expected to drive significant growth in the sports technology sector over the forecast period. The increased use of data analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and social media integration across a variety of sports are likely to be the driving forces behind the expansion.
The Rising Number of Sports Technology Events is the Key Factor Driving the Global Sports Technology Market Growth.
Online viewers are not the only ones who can attend sports technology events. It will also be held in a variety of physical locations, including homesteads, local sports-tech bars, and sports-tech arenas. The utilization of sports technology in actual settings raises the morale of sports technology players, actively promotes the idea of sports technology in the field, and broadens the target audience.
Physically hosting sports and technology events necessitates a significant investment. This makes it harder for teams or players from different parts of the world to participate. Numerous technologies, including high-density wireless, location-based services, and digital kiosks, are being installed and instrumented by stadium owners to improve the user experience.
To support its partnership with Manchester City FC (City Football Group), Cisco launched The Connected Scarf in August 2022. Cisco’s new scarf, which is made of wearable technology, lets fans keep track of how they feel during games and shows how connected the club’s fans are.
High Initial Investments and Budget Constraints
Sports technology is pricey. To transform a stadium into a smart one, stadium operators must make significant investments. A traditional stadium’s renovation and incorporation of cutting-edge technologies necessitate millions of dollars.
However, stadium operators are being discouraged from making significant investments due to inconsistent footfall and low event frequency. The location of a stadium, such as in economically disadvantaged, industrial, or business districts, as well as compatibility with event hosting factors can explain the low number of events that take place there. Stadium operators must also take into account the teams participating in the hosted event, the anticipated attendance, and their returns before making such investments.
Increasing Adoption of AR and VR in Sports
AR and VR are utilized in stadiums to enhance player and spectator experiences, enhance sports broadcasting, enrich interactive advertisements, and enrich interactive advertisements. In May 2022, Star Sports and Quidich Innovation Labs worked together to create this amazing augmented reality exhibit.
Spatio, Quidich’s real-time drone tracking system, can be used with the powerful 3D game engine The Unreal Engine. VR live streaming was utilized to provide viewers who were unable to attend the Tokyo Olympics with 360-degree experiences. The first stadium in the metaverse will be built by Sony and Manchester City FC.
The Advent of Visual Technologies for Sports is the Primary Trend in the Global Sports Technology Market Growth.
Visual technologies such as VR and AI are becoming more popular in sports illustration and sports viewing. As a result, coaches, leagues, and clubs in sports are using VR to offer aspiring players real-time experiences. Virtual training sessions in virtual reality allow athletes to train in real-world conditions.
By feeding these data into sports analytics platforms and introducing various training sessions to boost player performance, these data can be used to gain insight into player performance. VR enables athletes to improve their techniques by giving them a better view of the game, increasing their endurance, and anticipating the actions of their opponents. The market focus is expected to expand during the forecast period as a result of these developments.
In the year 2022, the smart stadium segment had the highest revenue share. It improves the experience of the audience, boosts profitability, and strengthens stadium security. It makes it possible for the organizer to keep up with stadium services like the live tracking of parking tickets, food concessions, and ticket lines. The market for sports technology expanded as a result of the incorporation of IoT devices into the design process, which made it possible to create interactive seats and wireless connections.
The rising demand for automation software for a secure and energy-efficient stadium accounted for the software industry’s highest market growth in 2022. The stadium’s significant requirements for asset management, ecological monitoring, and sanitation are driving the software technology market’s expansion.
Given the platform’s growing viewership, esports is expected to expand in the coming years. Due to the lockdown, the audience for the segment shifted significantly from live shows to virtual tournaments like PUBG Mobile World League 2020. This resulted in a year-over-year increase of nearly 500,000 viewers. Esports have established lucrative future opportunities by demonstrating their capability to a larger, more engaged virtual audience.
In 2022, soccer dominated the market because the sport is increasingly incorporating smart technology for improved performance monitoring and accurate results. After receiving approval in 2015 from the International Football Association Board, the sector had a slow start. After the year 2018, FIFA made it possible to share crucial information about players’ stats with coaches through smart devices in real-time, which helped the market grow.
The rapid adoption of technology like mobile apps, data analytics, and heart rate sensors as well as wearable devices, is expected to drive significant growth in basketball between 2023 and 2032. All NBA teams were given an analytics department in 2020 to improve their game-day performance and optimize training sessions.
With the growing use of IoT sensors, Rugby has the potential to attract a market that has grown in recent years. During the game, it enables the players to measure the opponent’s collision impact and supports smart decision-making for improving strategy.
