In 2011 the market for camping equipment was nearly $1.75 billion, yet retail sales have been flat as consumers continue to spend cautiously on non-necessities, such as new or upgraded camping gear. Following an anticipated surge in 2012—driven largely by pent-up demand from the recession—Mintel expects sales to grow at a slow pace due to shifting demographics and waning interest. The total number of campers at national parks (which serves as an industry barometer) has declined in the last five years, and this has likely had an effect on retail sales. Factors that have impacted and will continue to impact the industry include: the aging Baby Boomer population, a reduction in the number of households with children, the growth of the Hispanic population, and the economy. This report closely examines these themes as well as a variety of other factors driving the camping equipment market.
