Sports licensing comprises licensing of symbols, logos, and names of team players and varied sports organizations. All these items are owned by sports institutions that are widely known as licensors. These licensors lease the rights so that one can use their property as licensees in exchange for royalty. Licensed sports merchandise is widely sold through various retail channels such as drug stores, supermarkets, specialty stores, departmental stores, and online stores. Sports merchandising offers well-organized engagement with fans who cannot attend competitions and matches, thus aiding monetization of sports brands.

The tremendously growing popularity of sports leagues in the last few years is one of the major factors estimated to augment the growth of the market in the next few years. In addition, the increasing fan base, increasing disposable income among the population, and increasing living standards, particularly in emerging economies such as India, China, and Brazil, are some of the major factors boosting the demand for sports merchandise throughout the forecast period.
