Globally, outdoor activity adoption is increasing among the rising millennial population, subsequently increasing the demand for outdoor clothing. Across the world, manufacturers of outdoor clothing have a good opportunity to expand in the unexplored markets for outdoor clothing made from natural fiber. This is evident from the recent acquisition of Icebreaker Holdings, Ltd. by VF Corporation in April 2018. Icebreaker Holding manufactures outdoor clothing made from merino wool. Similarly, Patagonia which manufactures outdoor clothing made from natural fibers is also expected to increase its revenue in future by manufacturing outdoor clothing products made from natural fibers.
Across the globe, there is a general trend among consumers to stay slim, trim, and healthy. In developed regions such as the U.S., Europe, and Japan, outdoor clothing manufacturers are attracting aging but active consumers and in emerging economies such as Asia Pacific and South America, outdoor clothing manufacturers are attracting the younger population. Globally, women are increasingly taking up outdoor activities. In many developed countries such as the U.S., Canada, Germany, U.K., France, Italy, etc. the population of individuals of 15 years and more generally have a higher share of female population. Thus, the women’s outdoor clothing segment needs to be further tapped.
Although there is a rising demand for outdoor clothing products across the world, there is also an increase in counterfeit outdoor clothing products. These counterfeit products are increasing their presence on social media such as Facebook and Twitter to increase their sales.

Counterfeit outdoor clothing products are a major issue for established global outdoor clothing brands such as The North Face, Columbia Sportswear, Patagonia, etc.
