How are these brands so big?

Multiple, long-winded explanations contribute to this, yet one of the biggest and most simple reasons is the effect of the pandemic. The onset of the pandemic convinced millions of people to take care of their health. This led to a sharp increase in the sale of athletic wear from trusted brands (such as Nike, Lululemon, and Adidas). Furthermore, people being on the internet for longer during the pandemic indirectly helped high-quality brands spread their appeal. As a result, the industry started appealing to more people who naturally gravitated to well-established brands. The popularity of these brands grows daily, with no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
