The camping equipment market was valued at USD 15,014.25 million in 2021, and it is projected to witness a CAGR of 6.68% during the forecast period, 2022-2027.

COVID-19 affected the camping equipment market drastically, and the demand for camping equipment fell. This was due to the fact that there were certain rules and regulations which were imposed by the government of several nations around the world. These rules have resulted in a reduction of travelers by volume as they were not allowed to travel. Moreover, the tourist places were also closed, which significantly affected the camping market as the consumers were able to spot their camps. During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, many of these places were opened to accelerate the economic growth rate of different countries. During this phase, the consumers were traveling to several destinations, which have boosted the camping equipment market simultaneously.

Vendors are introducing camping equipment that ensures higher safety and comfort level in terms of size, weight, and quality of the material. Moreover, vendors have started developing the type of insulation used intents to protect the consumers from extreme climatic conditions.

A number of camping organizations and service providers are introducing camping programs targeted at different age groups in an effort to attract new campers. In addition, with the rising awareness about environmental preservation, demand for eco-friendly camping equipment is on the rise. Thus, vendors are introducing eco-friendly equipment to differentiate and expand their product lines. Such innovations in camping equipment may increase the sales of camping equipment during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Rising Participation in Outdoor Recreational Activities

The increasing participation in outdoor recreational activities is a significant factor that drives the prospects of growth in this market. Factors such as changes in lifestyle and attitudes, demographics, increasing recreational expenditure, and the physical and mental benefits of outdoor activities inspire consumers to engage in outdoor activities. Outdoor activities also help maintain a proper work-life balance. Camping is becoming a popular recreational activity. This is because camping helps the body to release higher levels of serotonin, a naturally produced neurotransmitter that helps regulate your mood, appetite, and sleep. Serotonin also improves cognitive functions such as memory and learning. This also includes people camping with cars and tents, as well as recreational vehicles and backyard camping. Approximately 21% and 18% of campers were aged between 6-12 years and 13-17 years, respectively, in camping activities. Young adult participants (18-24 years) made up about 14% of all participants (as per the data published by Outdoor Foundation). Moreover, as per the Outdoor Foundation data, the frequency of purchasing or replacing camping tents is once every three years on average, and for sleeping bags, it is once in 2.9 years. For camping chairs, it is once in 2.7 years in the United States.

North America Holds a Major Share in the Market

North America accounted for the largest share of the camping equipment market, with the United States being the major market, followed by Canada and Mexico. According to the Outdoor Foundation, 40.5 million Americans, or 13.7% of the population over 6 years of age, camped at least once. The percentage of campers who camp more than three times each year has grown by 64% since 2014. The increased number of consumers demonstrating their interest in camping has further propelled the spending on camping equipment. For example, as per Moneris, the country’s largest payment processing company, retailers in the outdoor travel and sports and recreation sectors witnessed a big boost in spending as people stayed close to home and tried to do more open-air activities during 2020. This is supported by the fact that Ontarians bought 47% more camping gear in August 2020 than in the previous year, which may contribute to the industry growth during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

The camping equipment market is competitive, and the major players are focusing on innovating their offerings through new product development and expansion to widen their presence across the world and cater to various preferences of consumers.​ The most active companies in the market include key players, such as Newbell Brands, AMG Group Ltd, Exxcel Outdoor LLC, and mont-bell Co.
