The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for agents and business managers of artists, performers, and athletes is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022. 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.
