Executive Summary


For some time now, Nike has dominated the athletic shoe industry, but not limited to, they have opened their brand in other aspects of the industry as well. Apparel and workout accessories have been added to their assembly line but yet their top sales come from their shoes. Nike has always been an advocate for athletics but it’s time they reposition their company around promoting the general welfare of consumers actually getting fit and providing more products that could potentially help consumers in weight loss  and getting fit. Waist trainers have become a quite useful product  while working out and help to decrease stubborn body fat. If Nike were to open its market to manufacturing  waist trainers for the use of men and women, it could ultimately create a new domination of an existing product on the market. Not only will waist trainers bring more revenue to the brand, it will also open up a new aspect in the Nike industry. Nike will be expanding their brand into the aspect of producing weight training products. Since Nike holds a recognisably stable brand, there is no doubt about what waist trainers will do for the company.



The company of Nike was originally known as Blue Ribbon Sports, a Japanese distributor of the shoe creator Asl Knightics in 1964. It was not until 1971 when Nike was branded and began its market endeavour. The company was founded by Phi, a Poland track and field runner, and Knight’s coach, Bill Bowerman. With Bowerman’s efforts to enhance his team’s performance, in his free time he would craft various combinations of shoes. Although many of Bowerman’s attempts failed, Knight went on to complete a degree in finance at Stanford University where he completed an assignment that suggested Japan enter the shoe manufacturing market to compete with German produced brands. Knight’s efforts in persuading Japan to enter the market went unnoticed and he took it upon himself to have shoes shipped to himself which he would sell locally. Once Knight had things moving off the ground he turned to his former coach as a potential consumer but instead Bowerman offered to join Knight. Business began to grow over the following years since the start of business and after nearly a year the company had reached about $20,000 in sales. In 1971, Nike began manufacturing its first own line of shoes, a lightweight training shoe, which was debut in the 1972 Track and Field Trials. With business rapidly growing, Nike continues to supply the market with new innovations of their shoes. By 1982 Nike became the leading competitor of the shoe industry for the production of athletic and training shoes. Nike’s industry didn't stop its growth there. Nike began producing apparel and cross-training accessories, endorsing public figures like Michael Jordan, and began sponsoring international and national sport teams.

Company Background

Nike’s primary focus of its products has been geared towards athletic footwear and have expanded its brand into other aspects of the industry. These products included into Nike’s market fall in categories of the following: running, basketball, cross-training, outdoor activities, tennis, golf ,soccer, baseball, football, bicycling, volleyball ,wrestling, cheerleading, and aquatic activities. Considering the various types of shoes Nike offers, it has served as the primary reason for the growth of the company. As for other products that appeal to weight loss training, Nike does not offer a large variety of products that capture this particular industry. The size of Nikes industry has experienced constant growth. During the year 1998, Nike consumers spent nearly $35 billion on athletic shoes totaling out to a whopping 1.1billion pairs of shoes. In that same year Nike’s average wholesale of athletic shoes totaled out to $8.7 billion accounting for almost 35% of athletic shoe purchases. In the athletic shoe industry Nike holds a market share revenue of 47.1% compared to another leading competitor, Adidas, holding  35.6% in market share revenue together theses two companies dominated the entire athletic footwear industry at 82.8%. Supply is another industry aspect that has a significant role. Majority of the companies that are contracted and produce goods in the footwear and apparel industry are distributed from Asia.  The four most common countries that produce these goods are manufactured in China, Vietnam, India, and Indonesia. Majority of Nike’s footwear products are produced in China, Vietnam, and Indonesia holding a number of percentages of their brand supplies. Nike has also created agreements with other countries such as Brazil and Mexico, just to name a few, that sell their products in local markets. Seasonality also affect industry profits. During the third quarter of the year Nike experience higher growth in sales granted sport activities commence in the cooler month and carry out through the remainder of the year. The demand for sportswear and footwear are at an all time high with national football and basketball leagues starting their season. Sponsorships are also another big aspect of the Nike industry that create a driving demand for products. Nike sponsors pro star athletes which ultimately drives the demand for Nike products up because of the consumers who are sports fans. Just to name  few, Nike sponsor pro athletes like basketballer Michael Jordan, soccer player Christiano Ronaldo, and many more prominent athletes with high volume fan base.



Competition in the athletic footwear, apparel, and equipment industry is vast worldwide. Nike along competes internationally amongst a number of companies that also provide athletic footwear, leisure apparel, sports equipment and companies holding diverse  products of athletic footwear. These companies include Adidas, Under Armour, Jordan, and Puma. Important aspects that the Nike industry include performance and reliability, product quality, innovation and development, and consumer value and price. Nike also use marketing techniques such advertising promotions to better capture the attention of their consumers and beat out the competition. Customer service is another aspect that play a key role in Nike having a better industry against the competition. Providing great customer service to its consumers allow Nike to continue to dominate the industry because consumers have a high demand for consistent and reliable customer service. With the use of endorsements and sponsorships, Nike use these to extended the consumers of their brand. Prominent athletes, teams, colleges, and sports leagues use the Nike brand because of the value the brand hold; as for Nike, this extends the demand of its products not just limited to general consumers.  Nike also offers its brand on more platforms than a retail store setting. Their products and services are also offered online giving the advantage of sales revenue in two divisions under one entire brand.

Who's the Competition?

  • Nike is the number one competitor and dominantes the athletic footwear industry. The shoes manufactured come in a variety of styles for various sports such as basketball, baseball, football, tennis, and volleyball.

  • Nike is great at market research and development to ensure what appeals to its consumers. Nike is also a high-end market with prices falling in middle to low price ranges giving them the push they  need to continue to dominate the industry and broaden their product span.

  • New facilities internationally have been said to be a weakness of the company because although they comply with local standard, they have not always met the standards set by the United States.

  • Corporate objectives have not been established overall by Nike. Nike’s objectives are immeasurable of time and implementation of executing programs that will meet the company’s objective.
  • The United States strong economy allows Nike to benefit well in the athletic footwear and apparel industry because the demand is high for high quality products.

  • The research and development area of Nike’s industry is ever changing because trends are also ever changing so production has to be a constant improvement.

  • Global events and campaigns who support the Nike brand offer the opportunity of global brand recognition.

  • Nike brand alone is prominent and with Nike extending their product category and producing new products higher in quality other than athletic footwear and apparel will offer Nike the opportunity to increase sales profits.









  • The industry of athletic footwear and apparel is competitive as is and competition could drive out Nike’s market share.

  • Inflation in the economy could cause consumers to cut-back spending on Nike products.

  • Pricing in the Nike brand are tailed on the more expensive end and consumers seeking to buy the brand may only seek out the discounted inventory.
