You will hear a radio interview about the sportswear industry.
Choose the correct phrase to complete the sentences.You will hear the interview twice.
F(for the presenter,woman's voice):The tremendous growth of the sportswear industry has been one of the great success story of recent years.
Sportswear manufactures have made a great deal of money.
Here with me in the studio to talk about this is Charles Muster of ACME Limited who in recent years has become one of the country's leading manufacturers of sportswear.
Charles,I notice you are not wearing sports shoes and sports suits.
M:Well,not at the moment,Sue.But I was earlier this morning.
P:Can we start off by looking at the finance of this great success story?
How much exactly is the sportswear industry worth?
M:At the moment I would say it's worth something like 2,500 million pounds a year.
F:To whom?Where are people going for their sportswear?
M:Well,traditionally,up to the end of 70's,shall we say,
sportswear was produced almost exclusively by sportswear specialists and passed on to the department stores to be sold.
(umhum)In the last five years,there's been an interesting development of the mail order business,
but most sportswear by far is still produced by sportswear companies like our own and then retailed through our own specialist outlets.
F:Approximately what proportion of the expenditure on all clothing in footwear is spent on sportswear,do you know?
M:Well,I'm not absolutely sure of the very latest figures,but it's something in the region of 9 percent,
(ummm)but includes expenditure on children sportswear.
What I think is more interesting or surprising is that recent survey showed that last year 38% of sportswear was purchased by adults not for use as sports clothes,
not I mean to play a sport,but just as casual clothes for their leisure activities.
F:You say adults.But my impression is that it is the young who buy the sort of clothing,
I mean my mother hasn't bought any sports shoes yet,they have been in fashion for years.
I'm not sure she ever will buy any now.
M:Of course,basically it's a youth market.
However,one surprising fact is that 15 to 24 age group is in fact getting smaller and it'll continue to do so for a few more years.
The size for this group has fallen from 9.3 million in the mid_1980's to the 7.5 million now,
and yet the sportswear market has expanded considerably during the same period.
It can't simply be a youth market.
F:What do you see is the reason for the development in sportswear?
M:Uh,well,it's hard if not impossible to give you any single reason.
There are even plenty of reasons why shouldn't have happened such as the rising costs of production and marketing leading to much higher prices.
What is clear is that the changing social conditions have greatly helped.
The market couldn't have grown with present size without the relaxation in coats and dress that is taking place in the late sixties.
We have relaxed some of our rules.
This has allowed sports participants to wear their track suits,sports shoes for many other activities they were not designed for.
At very practical level,clothing and footwear which are so suitable for sports are so easily used for other non_sport activities as well,
for DIY or gardening or just playing with the children.
F:And how do you see the future for sportswear?
M:I expect increasing competition between the manufacturers to produce more attractive and fashionable materials.
I don't expect this to affect the number of manufacturers act in the market place,but it could well bring the prices down.
F:We'll be wearing the same sportswear products then,by a few years now.
M:Almost definitely.This is not a passing fashion.
They will last.People,young and adult are putting an ever increasing emphasis on the importance of feeling and looking fit and healthy.
Most experts believe that sportswear will actually increase its market share over the next few years.
There are two main reasons for this.
Firstly,despite the fall in the 15 to 24 age group,the amount of time available...(fade out
