High demand and faltering supply chains: caravanning industry experiences challenging first half of the year

Press Release

Demand for motor caravans and caravans remains high, but supply chain problems are putting a strain on the production and distribution of new vehicles.
In the first half of the year, 55,202 new leisure vehicles were registered in Germany. This represents a drop of 12.2 percent compared with the record year of 2021, but still represents the second-best result in the history of the industry for this period. The figures would have been higher, but faltering supply chains have been causing major problems for the caravanning industry for more than a year. In the case of motor caravans, there is a particular lack of vehicle chassis, which is why the segment reported a minus of 15.9 percent with 40,985 new registrations. At 14,217 units, the caravan sector remained at the previous year’s level (+ 0.8 percent).

Caravanning continues to enjoy great popularity, as shown by the high demand for motor caravans and caravans. “The shift towards more individualized, nature-oriented vacations began long before the pandemic and will continue to influence the travel patterns of many people in the future,” reports Daniel Onggowinarso, Managing Director of the Caravaning Industrie Verband (CIVD). For the first six months of the year, the caravanning industry recorded the second-best result in its history, with 55,202 new registrations, despite massive problems in production and distribution caused by the lack of availability of materials and components. This development ensures a minus of 12.2 percent compared to the previous year’s record. New registrations in January and February had even topped the figures from 2021, but supply chain problems and global crises significantly exacerbated the situation for manufacturers and suppliers in the course of the following months.
