Abstract: Elements input and efficiency improvement are the power of industrial growth, so attracting high-quality elements and improving industrial efficiency would be necessary requirement to accomplish the high-quality development for sports industry. Based on the relevant statistical data of 16 districts on sports industry in Shanghai from 2014 to 2018, using the instrument of Solow growth function and super-efficiency SBM model, this study analyzed the element contribution rate and industrial efficiency of regional sports industry growth, respectively, and explored its influencing factors by regression analyses. The conclusions are as follows: Capital is the most important element to drive the sustainable growth of Shanghai sports industry, but the effect of expanding element investment to industrial growth is relatively limited. The technical efficiency (TE) of Shanghai sports industry is rather high, and the scale efficiency(SE) is medium, and industrial efficiency of each district is different. Industrial structure and economic development have significant and positive effects on TE, and industrial agglomeration and consumption demand have significant and positive effects on SE, too. Given those above, suggestions were put forward to improve the efficiency of sports industry for Shanghai.
