    • Sportswear

    Over the last few years, the artificial word "athleisure" has become accepted as a term for sports and functional clothing worn in everyday life, also known as urban or activewear. The sportswear industry (Athletic Apparel Industry) is dominated by Nike, followed by the strong number two Adidas. Puma and Under Armour are other well-known players. Also, there are many still small, innovative and dynamically growing companies attracting more and more attention. And one industry is benefiting from any new trends in Corona times: mail order.

    RYU Apparel, Adidas, Under Armour - Styling high on the agenda!

    • Sportswear

    The third wave of closures in Austria and now complete lockdown! Until January 18, not much is running in the Alpine country - however, the ski resorts are still open. Sports training is not a problem even in pandemic conditions - likely responsible for this is the strong lobby of ski tourism, which extends from hoteliers, restaurant owners, and mountain railway operators to the sports industry. The government followed the request and successfully resisted European uniformity. Reason: The Austrian gross domestic product is dependent on tourism to 37%, and here the winter pays two-thirds of the fee again. Turning off the tap at this point would immediately raise the question of who has to bear the economic damage. In any case, the EU will not pay - this has already been announced, so that skiing pleasure remains possible in Austria. We look at the sports and styling industry - is a new outdoor boom starting?
