Home to the world headquarters of Nike, the North American headquarters of Adidas and dozens of other footwear and apparel businesses, Oregon and specifically Portland are known for their robust sports business ecosystem. A recent study conducted by HR&A Advisors for Portland Business Alliance confirmed the region's reputation, but also showed that smaller footwear, apparel and outdoor companies in the region have an impact. According to the study, there were 51,000 jobs in the athletic, outdoor and recreation economy in Oregon as of 2019, with more than 80% of those jobs based in Portland.
