This industry is becoming increasingly globalized, and combined with intense competition, many industry participants have been forced to exit the industry. While a decrease in participation in sporting activities has threatened the industry, an aging population that is concerned with keeping fit and healthy will help drive revenue growth. Industry participants should also look to develop sales channels in the international market, as they represent a strong opportunity for growth for manufacturers in this industry.
This is the replacement for August 2007 edition of Sporting & Athletic Goods Manufacturing in the US report.
