Record sales revenues (€13.9 billion) for the German caravan industry in 2021

At the online annual press conference of the Caravaning Industrie Verband (CIVD), its president, Hermann Pfaff, reported that German sales of new caravans and motor caravans once again topped 100,000 in 2021 with the German caravanning industry as a whole achieving record sales amounting to €13.9 billion for new and used caravans and motor caravans, as well as caravan and motor caravan accessories. 

These sales revenues represent an impressive 12.1 percent increase relative to 2020, and the eighth consecutive year of record sales for the German caravanning industry. For the first time ever, German caravan and motor caravan makers produced more than 130,000 vehicles in 2021.

These figures were achieved despite the major challenges the industry faced in the latter half of the year – namely shortages of raw materials and faltering supply chains. These problems led to a sales decline of 15.2 percent for caravans. The CIVD expects the coming year to be a highly successful one for the German caravanning industry, provided that raw materials shortages and supply chain unreliability become things of the past.

There will be a full report on the figures from the CIVD in the next (March) issue of AboutcampBtoB.
