Sports Analytics Market to Witness Impressive Growth Ahead

Sports analytics helps the sports organizations in managing and analyzing the data from various sources, thereby improving the decision making and business processes. It also helps understand the risk probability and opportunities in the sports industry. With the increasing volume of on-field and off-field data generated among different sports organizations day-by-day, the need for managing all the data in an efficient manner and obtaining real-time insights delivered on smartphones and other devices has also increased, thereby boosting the adoption of sports analytics solutions. Thus, with the increasing demand and adoption, the global market for sports analytics is expected to witness good growth over the coming years.

Drivers & Restraints

The significant growth of the global market for sports analytics can be primarily attributed to the following factors:

  • Increased amount of in-field data
  • Rising demand for real-time data access

In addition, availability of cost-effective and high-end computing solutions and increased demand of analytics for complex data streaming are expected to fuel the growth of this market even further. However, lack of awareness regarding technology involved in sports and budget constraints are the factors that may hamper the growth of this market. Moreover, working upon the lack of appropriate analytical skills remains a key challenge for the major players involved in this market.
