The global tiki torch market size was valued at USD 462.81 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.7% from 2023 to 2030. The growth of the global market is mainly driven by rising demand for these products to add an authentic ambiance to pools and lakes, along retaining walls, or near outdoor entertaining or gathering areas. Furthermore, according to the STIHL British Garden Census, spending on backyard and garden renovation and garden accessories increased significantly in 2020. All these factors are likely to have a positive impact on the demand over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in people spending their time in gardens and backyards. In the past two years, people have also spent money remodelling and installing various decorations such as wind chimes, lanterns, lighting, and fire pits in the outside spaces. The increased attention to gardens/backyards and higher spending on outdoor enhancement are factors expected to give a boost to sales during the forecast period.
During the pandemic, the offline sales channel was disrupted, which led to consumers switching to online distribution channels such as e-commerce websites and company-owned websites. Furthermore, to reach consumers, manufacturers adopted online channels for the distribution of their products. Consumers prefer online platforms for purchasing these products as it is more convenient, time-saving, offer wide product selection, provides easy price comparison, and offer discounts, which resulted in an increased number of consumers purchasing products on online platforms during the pandemic compared to offline channels.

In addition, these products are sturdy and can withstand harsh climatic conditions.
Company-owned exclusive stores, retail outlets, and other types of brick-and-mortar stores significantly contribute to the total product sales in the market.
