The “sport system” in the industrial cluster of Montebelluna, which includes many large and small outdoor-related companies, generated total sales of €1.44 billion in 2014, up from €1.28 billion in 2007, just before the latest economic crisis. The number of companies involved in the sector declined from 491 to 487, but the number of their employees has risen from 4,545 to 5,377, as the surviving companies became bigger. These data, which were apparently less detailed than what had been available before, came out of an analysis of the progress of industrial clusters all over Italy.
