The sports industry is a new industry in China, and it has a better future. Sport is now recognised as an important sector of economic and social activity, part of the increasingly important leisure industry in China. Sport is not the largest sector of the leisure industry, but it is among the fastest growing. Many researchers analyzed about market, produce, money, economic, and business in Chinese sport industry. Input -output models differ from the flow-of-funds. The paper used an input-output approach in the estimation the economic impact of Chinese sport industry.


The industry conjunctions of Chinese sports industry were analyzed by Input-Output Analysis Approach, and the data came from Chinese Input-Output Table in 1997


The Chinese sports industry is obvious to be lower than other industries in GDP increasing number percent. The development of the sports industry to the third industry (do not contain the sports industry) pulls completely biggest, is the second industry the next, is the first industry again, and the lowest is oneself. The sports industry is a final demand industry. The sports industry push national economy development is far larger than what national economy development to pull it. In the whole, Chinese sports industry is to belong the final consumption to produce low inductance industry.

Discussion / Conclusions

The industrial categories used are very broad, and sub-sector such as sport is lost in broad aggregate groupings, but sport industry has strong conjunction and ripple to other industries. On the sensitivity of economic importance of sport estimates to the methodology used, the Input-Output Approach was the best way to estimate value added for sports for 1997, the latest year for which input-output tables are available.
The sports industry, which has strong conjunction, radiation and ripple to national economy development, can arouse the related industries to develop in China.
