Governments also offer financial support for the enhancement of camping infrastructure and campgrounds. Similarly, in Western Australia, The Parks for People Caravan and Camping initiative has been enhancing the outdoor recreation industry. This initiative includes USD 21.05 million investment from 2013 to 2018 to expand and improve visitors’ experience in conservation reserves and national parks throughout Western Australia. It also provides affordable services such as accommodation and transportation across the state.

Over the past few years, the millennials have been opting for adventure sports and outdoor activities including camping. Similarly, older consumers are seeking non-strenuous recreational activities. Numerous service providers have developed the programs such as Outdoorsy Camp, ESCAPE Camp, and Adult summer camps, which are exclusively for older consumers. This will encourage the older consumers to opt for outdoor activities including camping and thus, will expand the scope for the camping furniture. However, unfavorable weather conditions including extreme heat, cold, or humidity are expected to limit the camping activity and thus, in turn, will shrink the utility of various furniture.

The availability of a wide range of innovative product designs, including multifunctional and comfortable tables and chairs, has been boosting the demand for camping furniture across the globe. Consumers’ preference has been shifting towards trendy and innovative furniture. As a result, manufacturers are emphasizing the production of durable and multi-functional furniture in order to gain a competitive advantage. The importance of economical and environment-friendly raw materials, such as recycled plastic, wood, and aluminum, has been increasing among the manufacturers to produce lightweight and portable furniture for camping.

Camping Furniture Market Trends

Nowadays, manufacturers are making furniture with creative designs that merge different functionalities and comfort. This market is also concentrating on manufacturing products that are more portable and comfortable. The use of recyclable raw materials such as aluminum, recycled plastic, and wood in manufacturing is also promoting eco-friendly furniture. All these factors are expected to act as drivers for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic had put a halt on tourism and outdoor activities for a long time, but as restrictions have been lifted again people are starting to go on tours again. The tourism industry at present is growing remarkably in terms of revenue and eventually increasing camping activities due to which the market is growing. The increasing popularity of outdoor activities such as fishing, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, and others as well as  evolving lifestyles of people and rise in income, are expected to fuel the expansion of the market during the forecast period.


Unfavorable weather and increasing global temperatures have a detrimental impact on camping activities, hence the camping market is highly reliant on weather conditions. Changes in weather patterns such as excessive heat, cold, and humidity make camping uncomfortable and discourage people from participating in outdoor activities. Camping furniture is uncomfortable to use in humid and rainy circumstances, and this is a major worry among campers. In several nations, during the monsoon season, camping is prohibited. These limitations hamper the growth of the market.

Distribution Channel Insights

In addition, the provision of safe shipping, sometimes free home delivery, has been playing a key role in the growth of online channels.
