The price of electric awnings is likely to dip on account of increase in competition amongst manufacturers. Price reduction and discounts are key tactics adopted by manufacturers in a bid to attract consumers. Lowering product differentiation in the industry is also expected to bring the price of the product down.

The U.S. aftermarket is characterized by the presence of a number of dealers, OEMs, awnings manufacturers, and localized repair centres that are involved in the sale of components and accessories. High fabric sales result in increase in overall market revenue.

Product distribution through dealers accounts for a significant share of the revenue earned by companies in the industry. Major manufacturers in the region operate through a network of dealers spread across the U.S. These dealers are either involved in the sales of the product to leading RV manufacturers (OEMs) or directly to consumers.

Product Insights

The U.S. recreational vehicle awnings market can be bifurcated on the basis of product into manual and electric variants. The market for manual awnings is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.2% from 2018 to 2025 in terms of revenue, on account of demand for low-cost products, primarily for use in lower priced RVs. However, growing substitution of the product with electrically operated alternatives on account of ease of usage is expected to hinder segment growth over the coming years.

The market for electric variants of the product is expected to witness substantial growth in U.S. on account of longer operational lifetime. Demand for automated systems, coupled with improvement in retraction mechanism, is likely to drive the segment over the forecast period.

The growing establishment of RV parks and grounds have increased the affinity of consumers towards the use of recreational vehicles, which in turn, drives demand for awning installations. In addition, rise in demand for medium-to-high priced recreational vehicles due to increase in consumer spending is expected to promote market growth.

Surge in introduction of advanced products in both electric and manual categories in a bid to increase sales is expected to fuel the market. In addition, ease of product customization to suit designs and requirements of various recreational vehicles is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
