27 Jun 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The growing popularity of outdoor sports in China has propelled the gradual growth of the domestic outdoor gear industry. Total retail outdoor gear sales in China reached RMB 18.05 billion in 2013, posting a CAGR of just under 43% from 2005 to 2013 and increasing by 24.3% y-o-y. The main distribution channels include professional outdoor stores, market stores, e-shops, etc. In late 2013, the number of market stores has surpassed that of professional outdoor stores, comprising just under 74% of all stores in the market.

To date, nearly all worldwide outdoor brands have come into the Chinese market; however, their growth rate is decelerating whilst that of the Chinese local brands is still surging. At the end of 2013, there were 891 outdoor brands in the country, of which 458 were local ones. Toread is ranked 3rd in China’s outdoor gear market and is the largest domestic outdoor gear manufacturer, with a share of 8% as of 2013. Kolumb and Camel are other famous domestic outdoor brands, ranking 8th and 9th with a market share of 3% each. Still, foreign brands enjoy nearly 70% of China’s outdoor gear sector.
