With increase in lifestyle disease due to obesity and stress, alternative sports have emerged as a viable substitute to mainstream sports such as football, basketball, etc. The US government, in collaboration with civil societies and the media, have come up with several initiatives to popularise alternative sports as a means of getting fit, both physically and mentally. Many of these initiatives revolve around the construction of parks and sports complexes and launching social media campaigns to further enhance the desirability of pursuing alternative sports. Furthermore, women are being seen as untapped potential demand generators for such sports, and consequently, an increasing number of alternative sports equipment manufacturers are getting into creating equipment specifically for women, to broaden their consumer base. New technologies, such as 3D motion sensing are being adopted to track the user movements, as well as to attract the younger, tech savvy generation towards adopting alternative sports.
