The outlook for sports agents, in general, is very favorable. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts much faster than average growth for agents over the next decade, mainly because the sports industry is thriving and there is nothing to suggest that the public's interest in it will dwindle. The increasing popularity of women's sports leagues, such as the Women's National Basketball Association, also accounts for the rapid growth in this field. Also, as cable television brings greater choices to the viewer, it is possible that less-publicized sports will gain in popularity through the increased exposure, thus breathing life and revenues into those sports and creating new demand.
