Outdoor Industry: Powerful Economic Engine

Outdoor Industry: Powerful Economic Engine

Carve- Outdoor

 

IT MAY BE STARTING TO GET COLD OUTSIDE. BUT OUR MINDS —AND SKETCH PADS— ARE ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT THE OUTDOORS.

 

According to the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA), outdoor recreation in the United States is an economic powerhouse. It is among our nation’s largest economic sectors.  It generates annually $887 billion in consumer spending, that’s right -billion with a b! In addition, it also creates around 7.6 million jobs.

 

We are fortunate to live in a nation surrounded by natural beauty and inspiring landscapes. So, it is no wonder that American consumers are now spending more on outdoor recreation than they do on pharmaceuticals and fuel per year.[1]

 

Outdoor Industry Economy 

Wondering how these $887 are billion spent? According to the OIA, consumer spending on outdoor recreation includes:

 

Trip and travel spending: including airfare, fuel, lodging, groceries, lessons and more.

Recreation products: including gear, apparel, footwear, equipment, services and vehicle purchases… Ahem, this is where we shine bright like the sun on a beautiful summer day!

 

Our Chippenhook family has marathon runners and eagle scouts. We even have our very own in-house McGyver. Therefore, it is no surprise we are the best team to design and manufacture point-of-sale magic. And not to brag, but our products sell your products!

 

From eyewear displays, to clothing fixtures and shoe displays, even magical floating displays we have done it all... and to perfection might I add.

 

What can our talented team design for you?
