The market research analysis categorizes the global outdoor adventure mat market into three major product segments. They are:

  • Inflatable outdoor adventure mat market
  • Self-inflatable outdoor adventure mat
  • Foam outdoor adventure mat

Global inflatable outdoor adventure mat market

Inflatable air mattresses are sleeping pads that need to be inflated by the user himself. Inflatable mats are invariably much thicker than other mats once inflated and are, thus, more comfortable.

“Most inflatable mats do not provide insulation, but they consist of reflective materials and chambered construction designed to hold warm air near the user's body. These pads are much warmer compared to other types of pads. Their lack of insulation suits warm weather camping, and they can be packed into a small size,” says Brijesh.

Global self-inflatable outdoor adventure mat market

Most self-inflatable outdoor adventure mats have a tough nylon outer cover with a thin layer of open cell foam inside, which is an excellent insulator and can be inflated with a couple of breaths of air. Self-inflatable pads are more expensive than closed-cell foam pads as they insulate well and are light and compact. Some pads include a layer of down fill or synthetic material, which provides additional warmth to the user.

Self-inflatable mats are most suitable for backpacking and hiking trips, canoe or car camping, and winter camping. A few examples of self-inflating mats include Therm-a-Rest proLite, Mountain Equipment Helium 3.8, Alpkit Airo 120, and Vango Trek 3 Short.

Global foam outdoor adventure mat market

The foam mats or popularly known as foam sleeping pads are one of the oldest equipment that people used to carry with them every time they set out on an adventure trip. They are the most common type of mats used by outdoor adventure enthusiasts due to their comfort and affordability. These mats are made of different types of foam and vary in terms of shape, the sleeping area they offer, thickness, the thermal insulation they provide, and durability. Closed-cell foam pads are the most common mats these days.

Foam mats are most suitable for fast and light trips, camping directly on rough ground, winter camping or mountaineering, or just to add a layer below an air or self-inflatable mat. Some of the best foam mats include Therm-a-Rest Z Lite Sol, Multimat Superlite 8, and Gossamer Gear ThinLight.
