Increasing demand for adventure tourism: a major market driver
Increasing demand for adventure tourism is one of the major factors driving the global automotive bicycle rack market. Adventure tourism involves exploration or traveling to remote locations, which is growing rapidly among tourism enthusiasts. Adventure tourism involves mountaineering expeditions, mountain cycling, trekking, bungee jumping, rafting, and rock climbing. These activities help rejuvenate mental health and stamina. These activities are gaining high popularity among the population in North America and Europe.
The high demand for adventure tourism is attributed to the changes in lifestyle, demographics, and increasing preference for experiential traveling. Cycling tourism has been a highly popular sport for decades and is one of the most preferred types of adventure tourism. Increased participation in events such as Ride the Rockies and Tour de France has increased the demand for cycling tourism among individuals.
“Cycling infrastructure provides an attraction point for tourists and helps in diversifying transportation option for locals in many traffic-clogged cities. Due to all these factors, governments in many countries are continuously investing in the development of cycling infrastructure. The increasing demand for this kind of adventure tourism will fuel the adoption of automotive bicycles racks,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for auto accessories research.
