Nike Retains Title As World's Most Valuable Apparel Brand

Sportswear company Nike has bested other big names in the sportswear industry in revenue, raking in $37.4 billion for the 2020 fiscal year.

This was gathered from data presented by Trading Platforms

Two of the biggest names in the sportswear business Nike and Adidas made a total of $70 billion for the fiscal year 2020, with Adidas’ revenue around $13 billion, while Nike made more than double that figure.

The revenue generated for the fiscal year 2020 by Nike was a 5 percent slope from the previous year.

The decline in revenue is attributed to the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic.

That did nothing to stop the brand from being ranked as the 15th most valuable brand globally in 2020.
