New York, Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the release of the report “Global Football Shoes Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Distribution Channel, By Product, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028” –
Football boots have come a long way from their humble and unassuming beginnings, and currently they are the subject of extensive research, development, sponsorship and marketing at the center of a multinational global industry.

For a very long time, the basic style and look of modern footwear has converged with that of sneakers, making them more truly footwear in the sense that they don’t cover the ankle. In addition to association football, they are frequently worn for rugby union and rugby league by players in particular positions instead of specialist rugby boots. For other team sports played on grass pitches, such as hurling, lacrosse, shinty, quiddich, and even tug of war, football boots are frequently used.

Soccer cleats are an essential part of a player’s soccer gear. They are made to grip the ground and provide friction on the pitch to prevent slipping and sliding. Rubber, synthetic materials like nylon and polyurethane, leather, and other materials are all used to make soccer cleats. Kangaroo leather is the most widely used material for football boots. A form of leather called kangaroo leather is created from the skin of the kangaroo. It is very strong and has a particular texture. Footballers who need to be agile on the ground will appreciate its breathability and lightness. Because they are more durable and less expensive, some players prefer leather, while others prefer synthetic or plastic materials.

Market Growth Factors

Growing trend of playing football all over the world

Football is a fantastic workout because it incorporates endurance, strength training and cardio. Plus, playing soccer can be a great alternative to gym and exercise classes. Soccer lessons can be a significant benefit to a player on their way to physical and mental health. Football can be a great method to channel stress and tension into a more helpful outlet for dealing with anxiety. Football players are calm thanks to the adrenaline that accompanies the sport, which alleviates the effects of daily pressure on the brain. Additionally, soccer players have lower levels of anxiety and depressive symptoms as well as lower rates of aggressive behavior off the pitch.

The concept of income as generally understood in economics as closest to disposable income. Income available to households, such as earnings and wages, income from self-employment and unincorporated businesses, income from pensions as well as other social benefits and income from investments, is called disposable income. Households have more income to save or spend as their disposable income increases, which ultimately results in increased consumption. One of the most important factors that increase the demand is the increase in disposable income of people all over the world.

Market reconversion factors

Risk of injury

The most popular sport in the world and the one that brings in the most revenue is football. It is a sport whose intensity and levels of commitment have increased considerably, and whose intrinsic risk of injury, which is not immediately due to interaction with the environment, is particularly high. In this situation, the prominence of the cleat in football equipment can contribute significantly to the risk of injury. The evolution of soccer shoes is more complex as they differ greatly from other modern shoes designed for sports like jogging, tennis, and basketball in terms of design and mechanical construction. The main piece of football equipment, the cleat, acts as a point of contact between the player and the pitch, making it essential in preventing injuries.

Product outlook

On the basis of product, the football boots market is divided into soft ground, firm ground, artificial ground, hard ground/multi-ground, grass soccer and indoor soccer. In 2021, the hard-court/multi-court segment garnered a major share of the soccer cleats market revenue. The first pre-season football matches are best suited for hard ground / multi-court shoes. The studs or studs on these shoes are designed to penetrate the ground, making them more suitable for hard surfaces in the summer. These shoes provide players with greater comfort and allow for even weight distribution, which reduces the likelihood of them slipping or twisting.

Distribution Channel Insights

Based on the distribution channel, the football boots market is divided into online and offline. In 2021, an offline segment procured the largest share of the football boots market revenue. Shopping malls, department stores, local sporting goods stores, etc. constitute the offline market. The growing growth of this segment is attributed to changing consumer buying behaviors. Compared to their online counterparts, consumers believe physical stores are a more trusted and authentic source of purchase. Additionally, trying a product is crucial to choosing the best option when buying soccer cleats.

Regional outlook

Region-wise, the Football Boots Market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. In 2021, Europe witnessed the highest revenue share of the football boots market. This segment is growing steadily owing to the increase in consumer spending on football-related goods, such as football boots, in European countries and the popularity of football in this country. Football, which is among the top 5 most popular sports in Europe, is one of the most common sports in countries like Germany, Bulgaria, France, Poland, Romania, and Italy.
