A financial data platform called FactSet estimates Adidas’ market cap at approximately $74 billion at the time of this writing, though not far behind it is Anta, China’s largest sports company, which is listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange and has a market cap of approximately $64 billion.

If Anta continues to grow at the present rate, it will soon overtake Adidas as the second most valuable sports company in the world, behind only Nike with a market capitalization of $256 billion.

According to some analysts, the growth can be attributed to a trend where Chinese consumers prefer to purchase products from local brands over foreign counterparts.

The Chinese market alone was worth $46 billion USD in 2020 and represented 16 per cent of all sales worldwide, and by 2025, HSBC expects the market to reach $93 billion USD, representing 21 per cent of global sales.

At the same time, Anta also experienced a surge of popularity from domestic buyers following a boycott of overseas products like Adidas or Nike in response to concerns about forced labor in Xinjiang.
