This growth is mainly driven by increasingly sophisticated and tailored content strategies for each major platform and the emergence of social media and OTT platforms as broadcast channels in this region. In October 2021, The International Automobile Federation (FIA) announced its new plan of developing motorsport in Africa, to improve motorsport across the continent by strengthening the operational foundations for future events, implementing legacy projects and boosting commercial partnerships. Such developments will accelerate the growth of this market during 2022-2027. In August 2021, IQOO, a sub-brand of Vivo, announced being an official partner of German-based, BMW M Motorsport for the 2020 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) Season.

Motorsports Market Drivers

Ever Growing Popularity of Motorsports is driving the market:

Motorsports events generate a huge amount of revenue and contribute towards economical development, which is a major growth driving factor of this market. In July 2021, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) revealed that the motorsport industry contributed an annual $188.2 billion of business to the global economy. The growing popularity of motorsports among people creates a positive impact on revenue. According to another report by FIA, motorsports is one of the most watched sports worldwide and is one of the fastest-growing spectator sports. Grand Prix sports events had an annual attendance of more than 4 million in 2019, while 8 Grand Prix events had more than 200,000 spectators. The weekend attendance went up by 1.75% and the Sunday attendance was up by 4% compared to 2018. Such high popularity of these sports creates various ways to generate higher revenue. This in turn drives the growth of this market. In November 2021, Formula 1 owners announced that more than a quarter of a million people have already registered for pre-sale tickets for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix, which will take place around May 2022, where the planned audience capacity is around 80,000. The FIA report of July 2021, shows that the motorsports industry added $79.1 billion in total value through the goods and services including official merchandise, produced by the motorsport industry.

Adoption of new business models is one of the major factors creating opportunities for the motorsports market:

Amidst the Covid-19 breakout, many motorsports organizations were adopting many new business models including organizing virtual racing events to overcome, a difficult situation where fans were not able to enjoy these events like before, which in turn will create more opportunities for the motorsports market during the forecast period 2022-2027. For instance, in January 2021, F1 announced about the return of Virtual Grands Prix 2021 after a record-breaking year for the F1 Esports Series. The F1 report also states that virtual racing witnessed a total of 11.4 million live stream views across all digital platforms, which represented a 98% increase from 2019. Similarly, in September 2021, Porsche launched Gran Turismo Cup Asia Pacific virtual auto racing. The involvement of well-known famous champions from past and present days makes these events more popular among the fans. Furthermore, the prize money from these events goes straight to the charitable trusts, which also affected the involvement of the fans and drivers as well as other celebrities positively. A report states that more than 30 million people tuned into the Virtual Grand Prix series 2020 to see F1 stars, sporting icons and music chart toppers represent the ten F1 teams in eight live events that replaced the official calendar, as the real-life auto racing stopped due to the pandemic.

Motorsports Market Challenges

Negative Environmental effects are impeding the growth of the market:

Even though the motorsports market is growing over the years, but the associated environmental risks are creating hurdles to the growth of this market. These motorsports vehicles cause air pollution as well as noise pollution and create negative impacts on the environment. For instance, according to a report of the International Automobile Federation (FIA), published on December 2019, environmental risk is one of the major challenges faced by the F1 motorsport market, as the F1 driving activities produce around 256000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. The audit conducted by the FIA also states that the total carbon dioxide generated by the F1 motorsports in 2019 reached 1.9 million tonnes per year, after including the pollution created by the fans of this sport. Such negative impact of these sports events on the environment will create hurdles for the growth of this market during the forecast period 2022-2027. However, the rising adoption of electric vehicles for such motorsports events and various initiatives taken by the FIA to reduce the emission level of F1 is assisting in offsetting this challenge during the later stages of the forecast period 2022-2027.
