Since the year 2000 until now, the GCC sports market has experienced tremendous and positive changes, generating larger targets for sports brands and companies. Before the recent changes, the sports market across the region was traditional and dated, but after the consistent growing interest in sports, fitness and health it has developed into a premium market forcing retailers to adapt and make major efforts in their strategies. This new generation of consumers and sports habits increased year by year, so did sporting events, sports facilities and sports publications. The region has a high population of expatriates with an average to high disposable income, which generates a demand for high performance goods and sports equipment.
