The increasing emergence of sports leagues & events with large prize pools and the increasing adoption of AR/VR for creating near-perfect training environments are some of the factors which are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players operating in the sports technology market.
However, very minimal monetization opportunities, difficulty in mining athletic performance data for generating easily understandable insights, and high risk of cybersecurity concerns may hinder the growth of this market. Complexity in integrating new technologies with older systems or applications, slow cultural change in sports, and lack of time-efficient solutions for cleaning and manipulating siloed data are some of the major challenges faced by the players operating in the sports technology market.

Furthermore, the increasing use of generative AI, NFT ticketing and streamlining sports events ticket buying & selling process, and the use of predictive analysis software helping teams & coaches make better decisions are the latest trends in the sports technology market.

Increasing Adoption of Fan Engagement Technologies to Drive Market Growth
Technology is strengthening the bond fans have with their favorite teams and athletes—allowing sports clubs and associations to create deeper, more meaningful connections that are easier to maintain from a distance. Fan engagement has evolved from shouting slogans from the stands to making an impact using digital tools. Sports leagues and clubs worldwide, such as Australian Open, the English Premier League, Formula One, the Rugby Union World Cup, FIFA, ICC, etc., are actively looking for ways to engage with their fans and create a competitive advantage by providing demographics like millennials and Gen Z a highly personalized experience from brands they engage with while being on the go.

According to the Sports Fan Engagement Marketing Report (2018) by Gameplan Insights and Magid Associates, about 60% of sports fans are willing to spend more on experiences with their favorite teams and athletes. Using data analytics, UX researchers, and other research techniques, sports clubs and associations increasingly try to gather insights about their fans before providing the right experience. By collecting data and leveraging technologies like AI and machine learning, sports clubs and leagues map out audience journeys, understand behaviors, and deliver insights supporting fan engagement. For instance, in the context of a starting quarterback for an NFL team, data analytics can reveal how many of their fans are dedicated followers who attend games and buy merchandise. It can also show how the number of people following them changes over time, which helps to identify new fans.
