Sweat more, stress less. People’s relationship with exercise has changed these last couple of years. The pandemic improved habits and awareness of health and wellbeing. Consumers shifted towards home exercise and fitness tracking. The digital age establishes wearables and online workouts in the industry. This digital community setting offers an engaging and inspiring element to exercise in the comfort of our homes. The blurring boundaries between exercise and leisure are 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. The digital shift in exercise drove an increase in the digital retail of sports and exercise goods, and this market is only set to grow with more fitness goods.
Consumers can follow a live-streamed yoga or Pilates class with an athlete. Digital solutions mean that consumers can order sports equipment on social media platforms like Instagram. The way we use and buy our sports apparel and equipment is 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 demanding sustainability in products, supply chains and deliveries. Reduction in material use and plastics across the board requires innovation.
Sports and equipment eCommerce 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.
