According to P.J. Solomon, consumption in the U.S. Sporting Goods and Outdoor Recreation Category grew 18% to approximately $220 billion, from 2019 to 2020, and is expected to continue growing. For example, for the company’s Solo Stove brand, it is believed the core U.S. addressable residential market is 76 million detached single-family households. Today, the company’s U.S. penetration is less than 1% of this addressable residential market, representing a substantial growth opportunity with increased brand awareness.
