Sweat more, stress less. People’s relationship with exercise has profoundly changed these last couple of years. The pandemic drastically improved habits and awareness of health and wellbeing, with consumer shifts towards home-exercise and fitness tracking. Accelerated by lockdown restrictions, the digital age firmly establishes wearables and online workouts in the industry. This digital community setting offers an engaging and inspiring element to exercising in the comfort of our homes. The blurring boundaries between exercise and leisure is best seen in our changing attitudes towards clothing: Athleisure buyers desire the active lifestyle that comes with each purchase. Home-workouts and working from home, blurred the lines between leisure and professional life, and the expectations for our clothes to be versatile are here to stay. The digital shift in exercise directly drove an increase in the digital retail of sports and exercise goods, and this market is only set to continuously grow.
Consumers can follow a live-streamed yoga or Pilates class with an athlete, whilst also ordering merchandise and equipment all within social media platforms like Instagram. The way we use and purchase our sports apparel and equipment is increasingly digital. Through the many benefits of multi-channel retail integration, Sports and equipment eCommerce enables companies to stay relevant with consumer shifts.
Accelerated by the pandemic, consumers are urgently demanding sustainability in products, supply chains and deliveries. Reduction in material use and plastics across the board requires innovation in products and their packaging.
Sports and equipment fulfilment requires speed and accuracy to stay competitive amidst consumer expectations of next-day delivery. Adaptability and flexibility are especially important to withstand changing loads of seasonal volumes. These present storage and management challenges.
