The market growth is being positively augmented by factors such as the availability of camping equipment on multiple distribution channels and the increasing popularity of video-on-demand tourism and travel on digital platforms.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic caused significant disruption to the travel industry and the economy. Airline flights were cancelled, cruise ships were docked at the port, and vacationers adjusted their itineraries. The camping equipment market experienced a significant impact from COVID-19, resulting in decreased demand for camping equipment due to government regulations to prevent the spread of the virus in various countries globally. Implementing these regulations has led to a decrease in the number of travellers. The closure of tourist destinations also had a notable effect on the camping equipment market.

Market Growth Factors

Rising Participation in Camping Activities

A significant number of individuals enjoy camping experiences with their loved ones or colleagues, while others opt for solitary retreats in the wilderness, seeking proximity to the natural environment. The utilization of technology has facilitated the exposure of previously unexplored and distant destinations to potential customers. Moreover, businesses have implemented strategies to provide campers with distinctive camping experiences and attract a greater audience towards camping pursuits.

A Growing Number of Camping Clubs

A rise in the number of adolescent and adult campers can be attributed, in large part, to the proliferation of camping clubs and organizations that provide support for the activity. The growing number of participants directly facilitates the expansion of the market's scope. One of the most important factors influencing the direction of the industry is the growing number of camping clubs and associations that interact with millennials who exhibit a passion for various types of recreational activities.

Market Restraining Factors

The High Cost of Camping Equipment

The high cost of camping equipment tailored for recreational use is anticipated to impede the market's growth in the projected period. Premium outdoor camping gear, including luxury camping equipment and high-performance supplies, typically come at a higher cost than other outdoor camping products. The cost of producing camping equipment can be high due to the need for specialized materials and technology. As a result, premium products are projected to limit the growth of the camping equipment market.

Type Outlook

On the basis of type, the camping equipment market is divided into camping furniture, camping backpacks, tents, cooking systems & cookware and camping gear & accessories. The camping backpacks segment held the highest revenue share in the camping equipment market in 2022. This is owing to its ability to conform to the body's shape, unlike a travel backpack. The adjustable straps enable comfortable to wear by adapting to the physical structure of the user. To optimize the weight distribution, one can modify the backpack by adjusting the load straps on the shoulder straps to either increase or decrease pressure.

Application Outlook

Based on application, the camping equipment market is segmented into personal and commercial. The commercial segment acquired a significant revenue share in the camping equipment market in 2022. This is because camping equipment like tents is utilized in various adventure-based sports events. These units are ideal for corporate events, athletic competitions, and trade shows. With the growing adventure tourism sector joined with people enrolling in such events and clubs for nature exploration and fitness, the demand for commercial camping equipment will surge providing growth to the segment in the projected period.

Distribution Channel Outlook

By distribution channel, the camping equipment market is classified into business to business, supermarket & hypermarket, specialty sporting stores, online retailers and others. The business-to-business segment witnessed the largest revenue share in the camping equipment market in 2022. This is owing to the fact that B2B clients tend to place larger camping equipment orders and have a higher spending capacity compared to retail clients. As a result, business-to-business sales have a higher revenue generation potential than business-to-consumer sales.
