    The megatrend “individualisation”
    01/30/2019
    Individualized products are moving to the forefront, creating a broad range of new opportunities for the sporting goods industry in the process. This trend is all about “me, myself and I.” And that should be found in the product being purchased. Examples range from personally designed athletic shoes or skis to customized ski boots. Brands are learning that they must integrate their customers into manufacturing processes or into the late-stage refinement work that goes into their products. The trend is being accelerated by digital gadgets, those popular “wearables” that are actually mini-computers that support athletes during their activities and collect data. These data then form the basis for the manufacture of even more personalized products. At ISPO Munich (February 3–6, 2019), trade visitors will gain a comprehensive overview of today’s and tomorrow’s trends.

    01/30/2019

While the sports business increasingly focuses on women and their requirements as a target group, a lot of potential is not being exploited in the areas of marketing and product development.

The buying preferences of many amateur athletes have changed considerably in recent years: for example, consumers are increasingly interested in how sustainable their equipment is and what materials are used to produce it. In addition, many are becoming more willing to spend on high-quality products if this increases enjoyment and performance.
