Sporting goods market size in the middle east (apparel, Footwear, accessories and equipment) by country
Thanks for your question about the sports good market size in the middle east. The short answer is that although I was unable to find the market size specifically for the Middle East, I was able to find the market size for the Middle East and Africa combined and it was valued at $15 billion dollars annually based on 2013 sales and it's expected to grow by 10.1% - 15% annually. Below you will find a deep dive into my answer.
METHODOLOGY and DEEP DIVE
I started by searching for information on the sports goods market size in the Middle East. Most of the relevant information I saw required payment for access. And there was very little I could glean from the publicly available information. But even in those publications that require payment for access, I noticed that they grouped the Middle East and Africa together or simply referred to them as the rest of the World (see here, here, and here). This may be due to the fact that a Middle Eastern country like Egypt is in Africa and a paucity of data from those regions.
I discovered a publicly available data for the Middle East and Africa. Based on 2013 sales, the size of the Middle East/Africa market was estimated to be $15 billion and it was expected to grow by 10.1 percent annually between 2013 and 2017 according to this report. Based on 10.1 percent growth annually, the size of the market would be 16.52 (15 billion * 10.1%) billion in 2014, $18.19 billion in 2015 ($16.52 billion * 10.1), $20.03 billion in 2016 (18.19 * 10.1%), and $22.05 billion in 2017.
However, according to this source, the growth rate for Middle East and Africa would be 15% annually between 2013 and 2019. Using the 15% annual growth rate, the size of the market would be $17.25 billion in 2014 ($15 billion * 15%), $19.84 billion in 2015 ($17.25 billion * 15%), 22.82 billion in 2016 (19.84 billion * 15%), $26.24 billion in 2017 (22.82 billion * 15%), $30.18 billion in 2018 ($26.24 billion * 15%), and 34.71 in 2019 ($30.18 billion * 15%).
In addition, I searched for data on the sports goods market size for Middle Eastern countries and was only able to find data for the UAE (2014) and a very old estimate for Israel (2004).
More recent reports I found required payment for access for the various Middle Eastern countries.
In addition, I searched for the market size data for Africa with hopes of being able to subtract it from the Middle East/Africa market size already reported and get a more specific market size for the Middle East. However, I also came up short on that.
You can find some recent reports for various Middle Eastern countries and the Middle East in general that require payment for access here, here, here, here, here, and here.
*The United Arab Emirates
The United Arab sporting goods market was valued at Dh3.9 billion (approximately $1.06 billion) in 2014 and the market was expected to grow by 4 percent between 2015 and 2019.
The old 2004 report put the Israel sports goods market size at NIS 2 billion (approximately 532 million dollar today).
To conclude, the sports goods market for the Middle East/Africa was $15 billion dollars based on 2013 sales data and the projected growth rate is between 10.1 - 15% annually between 2014 and 2019.
