Global Camping Equipment Market


Global Camping Equipment Market Trends:

Growing Demand for Outdoor Recreation

The escalating demand for camping equipment due to the rising preference for outdoor recreation is primarily driving the growth of the market. In line with this, people are increasingly seeking ways to disconnect from their monotonous life routines and reconnect with nature, which is creating a positive outlook for the overall market. According to the report published by the North American Camping Club in April 2022, camping holds 40% of leisure travel trips share, and 36% of people opt for camping at least once every year in North America. The report also indicates that, in 2021, 66% of people preferred camping in tents, while 82% of people bought recreational vehicles for camping. Apart from this, there is a rise in the desire to escape urban life and experience the peace of natural settings, further propelling the adoption of camping equipment. For instance, according to KAO's monthly report published in January 2022, 70% of the individuals who camped in 2021 were planning to camp again in 2022. In addition, camping enables people to discover new places, try various outdoor activities, and challenge themselves, making it a lucrative option for adventure seekers. People are increasingly seeking camping equipment that offers enhanced convenience, like portable cooking equipment, portable lights, and lightweight tents.

Increasing Popularity of Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Tourism

The growing preference for sustainable and eco-friendly tourism is acting as another significant driver for the growth of the glamping market. Many camping equipment are being designed and developed with a low environmental impact in mind to appeal to environmentally conscious travelers. According to a survey of 2022, over 80% of global travelers said that sustainable tourism was important to them and that they would prefer sustainable travel incentives. The increasing environmental impact of tourism is significantly alarming. The United Nations's World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) declared that global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from tourism-related transport accounted for a significant contributor to climate change. Transport-related emissions from tourism are anticipated to account for 5.3% of all man-made CO2 emissions by 2030. Moreover, the government authorities of various nations are taking initiatives and implementing policies to combat the climate change threat posed by the tourism sector. For instance, Australia's Tourism Ministers endorsed and launched the National Sustainability Framework and Sustainable Tourism Toolkit in November 2023. Austrade, state and territory governments, and Tourism Australia all worked together to develop and deliver the Framework and Toolkit. The Toolkit is a practical guide for tourism businesses. It helps them to respond to the growing consumer demand for sustainable travel choices. Such initiatives are anticipated to catalyze the demand for sustainable camping equipment in the coming years.

Rise of Social Media Influence and Digital Marketing

The increasing influence of social media and digital marketing is significantly bolstering the market growth. The camping industry is witnessing a surge in social media content as users search for recreational outdoor adventures. Platforms such as Instagram are becoming hotspots for showcasing plush tents, sleek airstreams, and eco-friendly cabins that offer a home away from home. Moreover, influencers and travel bloggers play a key role in this trend, as their posts and stories depicting experiences inspire followers to seek out similar adventures. Additionally, the ease of online bookings and the presence of dedicated platforms and websites for camping are making it more accessible for potential customers. In-app purchase (IAP) revenue in the travel market reached nearly US$ 114.30 Million in 2022. This digital approach simplifies the process of finding and booking these unique accommodations, which further bolsters the camping equipment market growth.
