Company Description

Sector: Consumer Cyclical
Industry: Footwear & Accessories

Nike designs, develops, and merchandises footwear, apparel, equipment, and accessory products. The company offers products in eight key categories: Action Sports, Basketball, Golf, Men’s Training (including Baseball and Football), Running, Soccer, Sportswear, and Women’s Training.

Nike is a global company with over 60,000 employees. Footwear is supplied by approximately 146 factories in 14 countries. Apparel is supplied by over 400 factories in 39 countries.

The company uses distinctive marks including the Nike name and Swoosh Design trademarks to distinguish itself from competitors. In addition, the company uses endorsements from widely recognized athletes to identify with specific key products.

SWOT Analysis


Nike’s market leadership is derived from competitive advantages such as size, brand recognition, strategic assets (patents, trademarks, copy rights, etc.), and product differentiation and innovation.

The company has built a reputation with retailers and customers that is unmatched. It’s diverse offering of products over many different sports and geographical locations provides a degree of diversification that only Nike can enjoy.


Extrapolation of Nike’s past growth rates far into the future does not seem reasonable. Nike is so large and already has a leading position in many sports and geographical locations that growth will have to slow at some point.


New product launches from Nike have instant credibility and and almost unlimited marketing resources. Developing markets offer growth opportunities where incomes are rising and sports such as soccer offer increased market penetration.


There are many competitors in the global athletic footwear and apparel markets; most of which operate on smaller margins and offer lower prices than Nike. Economic growth (or lack of) can cause consumers to become more frugal and balk at Nike’s higher prices.
