In contrast, the European market, with around 125,030 newly registered motor caravans and a share of 59.8 percent, is more likely to be regarded as being motor caravan-friendly. Australia, as third in the world ranking, is preferred with a market share of 6.7 percent for caravans. Motor caravans are mainly used for rental purposes.
The remaining 3 percent of the worldwide caravanning cake is shared between countries or continents such as China, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa. The South Korean leisure vehicle market is a pure caravan market that has developed positively in recent years. Caravans are also sold almost exclusively in South Africa and New Zealand.
The leisure vehicles, be they caravans or motor caravans, in the individual countries or continents are adapted to the traffic and use-related requirements and therefore have different dimensions, technical and spatial equipment. Further sales increases are expected in all markets for the leisure vehicle industry in 2019, also against the backdrop of stable economic and political structures and developments. The trend towards a natural, free and independent form of holiday has not yet shown any signs of fatigue.
