People are spending more time outdoors thanks to COVID-19 indoor restrictions. New data shows what people are spending their money on for outdoor activities.
In data collected by the NPD group, cycling-related sales are seeing one of the largest upticks in the U.S., rising by 63 percent compared to this time last year to reach nearly $700 million in sales in June. Paddle sports sales are also up 56 percent year-over-year for a total of $172 million in June. Golf and camping equipment also made the top list, while sales related to nature sightings and bird-watching grew by 22 percent year-over-year.
Analysts predict a continued growth in outdoor activity sales while the weather cooperates. With many bars, restaurants, movie theaters and other indoor activities still closed for the foreseeable future, more and more Americans are looking for ways to spend money on fun outdoor activities.
