The advancements in technology have given significant importance to analytics. The managers rely on statistics and data to plan game plans to achieve success in the game through data analytics. These advanced analytical solutions play a crucial role in building in-game strategy as it provides managers, stakeholders, coaches, and players with a solution that generates valuable insights on various parameters of the overall team and the individual players. The solutions help managers gain data about players and provide data on weather and pitch conditions to plan a better strategy.

Traditionally, the game results depended solely on the players and their abilities. However, the technological developments in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML) have initiated a pattern shift in sports analytics. The algorithms of this software analyze aspects such as performances in overseas conditions and on home grounds, opponents, and game conditions and recommend the best suitable players for specific requirements. However, support vector machines and deep neural networks help coaches and managers to determine winning probabilities and combinations.

Furthermore, a clustering algorithm targets particular groups to help increase the fan base through fan management analysis. Big data analytics improves team efficiency and raises revenue through merchandising, sponsorships, media rights, and ticket sales. The analytical data is widely used in fantasy gaming applications to showcase player information and individuals while selecting players to get money rewards. The increasing use of sports analytics solutions in fantasy gaming is expected to impact the market positively.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the global sports industry. The outspread of the coronavirus led to the postponing of major sports events such as UEFA Euro 2020, Olympic Games, ICC Men's T20 Cricket World Cup, and many more. The sports industry suffered heavy losses resulting in budget cuts on players' compensation and spending on technology. However, the market witnessed signs of recovery in 2021 due to the resume of sports events.

Component Insights

The software segment dominated the market in 2021 with a market share of over 58%. Several software applications produce data for sports analysis, including pre/post-game analysis, real-time predictive analysis, motion/video analysis, and data visualization. Marketers are offering customized sports analytics software, depending upon the desired use of software for individuals and teams. Developments in Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), biometrics, 2D/3D imaging, Big Data analytics, and video-based sensing have helped the software segment transform. These technologies are now effectively used in video analysis solutions, player tracking, and motion analysis software.

Managers also use software applications to optimize their marketing and advertising campaigns. For instance, an American professional baseball team, The Texas Rangers, is using sports management software of Tableau Software, LLC, which has provided a complete view of all operations in one software, including real-time merchandise and ticket sales, promotional activities, in-stadium food & beverage sales, and game attendance.

Technology consulting and data analysis, predictive forecasting, data governance, API integration, and maintenance are some of the services on offer in this domain.

Analysis Type Insights

The on-field segment dominated the market in 2021 with a revenue share of over 60%; demand is expected to dominate continuously during the forecast period. The segment's growth is attributed to the increasing use of on-field analytical data such as health assessment, player & team analysis, and video analysis. The adoption of on-field data analysis solutions in sports, including football, cricket, rugby, and swimming, has increased in recent years.

For instance, SAP SE offered TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, a German Bundesliga club, the ability to enable digital transformation for the football club using SAP SE's new solutions. The software has helped football coaches and managers visualize formations, plays, and strategies dynamically. Increasing demand for health assessment, player & team analysis, and video analysis requirements by the sports team is expected to fuel the growth of the on-field segment in the forecast period.

Off-field analytics primarily helps improve the business and operational efficacy of sports teams. Off-field analytics is majorly used by different stakeholders, fantasy gaming, and betting applications to increase profitability by making the right decisions. An increasing trend among sports fans to understand sports dynamics is expected to fuel the significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Sports Insights

The football segment is expected to register a CAGR of over 29% during the forecast period. The increasing popularity of football across European countries such as the U.K., Germany, and Spain is attributed to the segment's growth in the forecast period.

Data analytics applied in football games help collect valuable insights such as player performance, passing trends, acceleration, and the number of touchdown passes. The high benefits provided by the solutions in football and the heavy investment by football teams in data analytics solutions to gain a competitive edge are expected to drive the segment's growth.

The basketball segment is also expected to witness considerable growth during the forecast period. Basketball teams use high-tech data analytics solutions to formulate game plans and strategies, avoid player injuries, and scout. Team coaches and managers also use data analytics solutions to evaluate opponent teams, increase the probabilities of winning the game, and decide team compositions. For instance, sports data analytics firm Noah Basketball has helped various NBA teams, including the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, and Golden State Warriors, to analyze the performance and shooting arcs of the basketball players by providing Noah's basketball tracking system. The demand for data analytics is expected to increase during the forecast period.
