The outdoor-sector has more in store than only functional clothing. ISPO.com gives an overview of the whole sector.
The absolute classic: Functional clothing with a technical look is a favorite with outdoor-purists.
Ultra-hip: "Post-outdoor", functional products and materials with fashionable aspects.
Classical outdoor-territory: Mountaineering from hiking to trekking, and even ...
... climbing via ferrata and alpine climbing.
Family and especially children offer great potential as target groups to the outdoor-industry.
Another big outdoor-sector: camping. The target groups range from campers to festival crowd, even including extreme mountaineers.

But the shining star of the outdoor-industry is the winter sports sector. Freeskiing, boarding or ice-climbing: for half a year these sports dominate the whole outdoor business and deliver figures.
