“Staying fit while socially distant is the overarching theme that continues to drive sales for the outdoor and sporting goods businesses, and we see this shine through in all the products highlighted above. Consumers continue to invest in fitness equipment for the home. In many cases, these purchases are ‘one and done,’ but new opportunities with consumers lie in complimentary purchases, including add-on accessories and additional equipment to expand and diversify their fitness repertoire. Outdoor-related equipment from kayaks to golf is also experiencing phenomenal growth, driven by both new and existing participants. Spending more time at home has also heightened the demand for smokers, grills, and other backyard essentials. With the holidays around the corner, some may consider social-distance friendly gatherings and turn to those products that provide warmth and good food in the comfort of a backyard.”
