Market Dynamics


The Global Outdoor Performance Apparel Market is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period. Outdoor activities, also known as outdoor recreational activities, refer to activities performed in natural surroundings. According to the Outdoor Industry Association, in the US, 146.1 million population participated in outdoor activities at least once in 2017. In the US, almost 49.0% population aged six and over participated in outdoor activities in 2017. Participation in outdoor activities has increased from 48.8% in 2016 to 49.0% in 2017 in the country. Furthermore, new participants made up 4.1% of the total participants in 2017. Additionally, higher per capita household income, a growing young population, and the rising trend of adventure sports are anticipated to drive the global market for outdoor performance apparel during the forecast period. However, the increasing number of private label manufacturers is restricting the growth of the global market. Local manufacturers offer outdoor performance apparel that caters to the market needs and planned inventories of retailers. These manufacturers also sell their products in unorganized markets at comparatively lower costs, thereby limiting the growth of players in the global outdoor performance apparel market. The sales of private-label products are mostly unaccounted for, which creates a gap between the production volume and the revenue generated in the global outdoor performance apparel market. Thus, the increasing number of private label manufacturers offering products at low costs is expected to hinder the growth of the established players in the global outdoor performance market during the forecast period.
