Motorsports Industry Outlook - by Race Series

The formula Racing segment held the major market share of 53.50% in 2023, with a CAGR of around 7.9% during the forecast period 2024-2030.

The region is home to some of the most renowned and prominent racing series, including NASCAR and IndyCar, which are widely popular and draw large crowds. Major racing facilities, such as Daytona International Speedway and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, provide cutting-edge settings for high-profile events. These venues not only cater to ardent fans, but they also function as technological innovation and advancement hubs in racing technology. The North American motorsports market benefits from a thriving ecosystem of teams, sponsors, and vehicle manufacturers who actively participate in and contribute to the industry's development. The region's commitment to innovation, safety standards, and fan involvement via digital platforms solidifies its role as a driving factor behind the region's sustained success.

Motorsports Market Drivers

The growing popularity of Motorsports is driving the market:

Motorsports events generate a huge amount of revenue and contribute towards economic development, which is a major growth-driving factor of this market. The fact that the motorsports market has done an exemplary balance in presenting technical coverage and keeping personal information private by educating their supporters further boosts the market’s appeal and revenue generation potential. A major demonstration of the point above is the increased fan interactions and viewership of F1 Live from London in July 2022. EETech, a global participant in technological data, communities and eCommerce within the automation and electronics industries, confirmed their multifaceted relationship with RWR and Team SR2's #51 Indy car on March 30, 2023. The NTT INDYCAR SERIES is broadcast in 223 markets in 142 nations, with 17 events held in North America. On March 3, 2022, BWR Motorsports GmbH created cutting-edge technology that allows critical tire Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) tests to take place on the racecourse. The MOTITE portable tire testing equipment is the appropriate solution for race teams in series such as Formula One and WEC to evaluate tire grip levels and rank the tires on track.

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 2024-2030. TVS Motor Company, an Indian two-wheeler manufacturer, announced an agreement to collaborate with PETRONAS, an international energy group, to sponsor TVS Racing, India's first factory racing team, on April 25, 2022. The implementation of innovative business models is critical to the growth of the motorsports market. By embracing new and diverse techniques, industry stakeholders can open up new revenue streams beyond traditional sources such as ticket sales and sponsorships. Motorsports organisations might explore collaborations with technology companies, gaming platforms, and digital content makers to gain a larger audience. Incorporating virtual reality experiences, developing mobile applications, and using social media platforms, for example, can greatly increase fan involvement. These technology developments not only serve existing fans but also attract new enthusiasts, adding to the overall growth of the racing industry.

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. The negative environmental effects linked with the business have had a substantial impact on the expansion of the racing market. Motorsports have come under attack for their significant carbon footprint and resource-intensive nature in a moment when environmental consciousness is on the rise globally. The general population, which is becoming more aware of climate change and air pollution, has raised worry about the environmental impact of racing events. The industry's reputation and market appeal have suffered as a result of this shift in public attitude. Furthermore, strict environmental restrictions and emission requirements provide obstacles for motorsports, particularly those that rely on combustion engines. Motorsports events that are viewed as contributing to environmental decline may find it difficult to get financial support, limiting their potential to develop and innovate, since sponsors and investors prioritise ecologically friendly ventures. As a result, negative environmental consequences are a significant component dictating the future of the racing market, demanding an update of methods in order to comply with sustainable and eco-friendly principles.
