Massive Popularity of Sports Leagues Propels Market
At the forefront of driving growth in the global licensed sports merchandise market is the surging popularity of sports leagues. This is particularly apparent in North America. "In this region MLB, NFL, and the NBA form the major leagues that enjoy huge popularity in merchandise sales. Among all of these, the NFL and MLB together account for almost 50% of the North America licensed sports merchandise market in terms of revenue.

Product Innovation Helping to Overcome Piracy Challenge
Countering the global licensed sports merchandise market, on the other hand, is the growing threat of piracy of products such as t-shirts, jerseys, and hats. It crimps sales of genuine items thereby causing a loss in revenue to manufacturers of authentic products. Helping to overcome the challenge is the frequent unveiling of new and more stylish products leveraging innovative fabric technologies. Besides, technological innovation in sporting toys and video games is also fuelling sales in the licensed sports merchandise market.
