New Market Research Report: Sportswear in Australia

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Jul 30 2014

Purchases of sports clothing and footwear in Australia increased significantly in 2013. Although for years sportswear was strictly a men's market, women are now the key target audience. It is noticeable on the streets of Australian main cities how many women prefer to wear sportsgear for any daily activity, not only to do exercise. As such, they are an obvious target market for international and local sportswear brands like Lululemon, Lorna Jane and Running Bear, with extensive collections designed for current lifestyle trends. Industry sources pointed out that women want to look good when they work out and companies offering them a stylish workout outfit that can also be worn post-exercise, on a casual occasion like stopping at a cafe to meet with friends, have brought significant dynamism to the category. For instance, Lululemon specifically designed a line for yoga that is marketed under the tagline "to-and-from".
