Rising Interest In Sports Betting Driving Market Growth

Declining Sports Budget Across Emerging Economies Anticipated As The Key Challenge Hampering Market Growth

There may have been a growing adoption of the latest technology for player tracking systems. However, the declining budget allocation for the sports industry, events, and equipment pose a significant threat to the global player tracking market. For instance, according to the Financial Ministry of India, the government declared a sports budget cut of about USD 31.13 million for the FY 2021-2022. The reduction in sports budget negatively impacts the growth of the global player tracking market. Reduced budgets also lead to fewer sports facilities, negatively affecting growth in participation in sports, which results in lower participation rates. The reduction in participation reduces the demand for play tracking devices, systems, and software. This negatively affects the global market for player tracking.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Player Tracking Market

COVID-19-pandemic sparked tensions across the world, causing governmental authorities to take immediate action. The governmental allocations for recreation and sports across Europe and India indicate that COVID-19 has impacted the government's budget as well. The budget reductions have been diverted toward healthcare to provide support to the most overwhelmed sectors across the world. World War I may have caused the Olympics and Paralympics to be canceled. The pandemic marks the first time they've been postponed after those events. The TV ratings for Stanley Cup Finals, NBA finals, and other events plummeted by more than 61% and 49%, respectively, in 2020. Another factor impeding the market's growth is declining interest in sports, which may compel players to use lesser expensive methods of keeping track of their progress in order to save funds for the franchise.
