Fast track: China's leading sportswear companies face challenges after the heady days of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

published in Issue 45, 2nd quarter 2013  


The success of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games helped China's leading sportswear companies to achieve unprecedented growth in sales and profits in the years which followed. In fact, each of China's six biggest sportswear companies -- namely 361 Degrees, Anta Sports Products, China Dongxiang (Group), Li Ning Company, Peak Sport Products and Xtep --managed to achieve two years of significant sales growth. In 2012, however, all six were caught by what appears to have been a significant downturn in the market. This report examines the causes of the downturn and the measures being adopted by the companies and the Chinese government to mitigate this. It also features information about the development of China's sportswear industry, and analyses the extent to which the industry is globalising compared with the world's two biggest sports brands, Adidas and Nike. This report is an interesting and vital read for those who are looking for insight into the past and future strategies of China's leading sportswear companies.
