The rise of the camping equipment market and product innovation trends

As stress levels increase, disposable income increases and urban pollution levels rise, camping is becoming more and more popular as a way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and get closer to nature. This trend has promoted the booming development of the camping equipment market. According to data, global camping equipment consumption has reached US$16.4 billion in 2022, and is expected to increase to US$33.17 billion by the end of 2032, with a compound annual growth rate of as high as 7.3%.
