The Hiking and Outdoor Equipment Stores industry has struggled to grow over the past five years as competition from both internal and external sources has pressured retail sales. Industry players have benefited little from favourable economic conditions, with discretionary incomes increasing and consumer sentiment on the rise. Consumers are increasingly looking for exercise and recreational activities that require minimal planning, resulting in lacklustre demand for goods sold by hiking and outdoor equipment stores compared with those sold by personal fitness and sporting goods retailers.
This industry includes physical stores that primarily sell hiking and outdoor equipment, with a specific focus on camping and hiking supplies.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
