Recreational Products - Executive Summary Q1 2019

Q1 2019

Activity in the Recreational Products industry has been primarily driven by robust macroeconomic fundamentals and a growing desire among consumers to lead healthy, active lifestyles. Historic levels of real disposable income, rising 2.8% year-over-year in October, and low unemployment have resulted in growing expenditures on luxury consumer goods. Shifts in consumer preferences, supported by a strong Consumer Sentiment index level of 98.6, have driven industry consolidation.2 Due to elevated demand in the industry, strategic and private equity buyers have targeted businesses with proven sales channels, quality product offerings, and deep reach into social media outlets.
