European Motor Homes Market Analysis

The Europe Motorhome Market was valued at USD 8.94 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 13.51 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR above 7% during the forecast period (2022 - 2027).

The COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent shutdowns have had an impact on the motorhome market in European countries. The negative effects of the pandemic can be seen in the sales figures for the first few months of 2020 and 2021 in the significant market. However, the motorhome market began to gain traction, and as campers began to prefer safer motorhome vacations, growth is expected to continue in the coming years.

Over the long term, the incorporation of advanced technology for reducing carbon emissions and improve the fuel efficiency of the motor home. Electrification and installation of portable solar panels for motor homes are the major innovation areas for the companies to invest in. Now small functions such as lighting and heating in the camper can be possible with mobile applications. The increasing demand for adventure camping and camping grounds in Europe and initiatives from governments and the promotion of motor home tourism is expected to support the growth of the motorhome market during the forecast period.

The high initial purchase cost is one of the major factors limiting the market growth. The use of innovative and high-quality materials to reduce the weight of recreational vehicles, as well as the customization of interior and exterior features, will significantly increase the overall vehicle cost.

European Motor Homes Industry Overview

The European motor home market is fragmented due to the presence of many local and global players such as Thor Industries Inc., Swift Group, and KnausTabbert GmbH amongst others. The market is transforming at a rapid pace and local companies are facing tough companies from the United States RV manufacturers such as Forest River Inc., Winnebago Industries, Inc., and Thor Industries Inc. As a result, many major American players are acquiring other companies to increase their market presence and diversifying their product portfolio. Also, companies are incorporating the latest technologies in their latest RV models to provide the best experience to the occupants. For instance,

  • In July 2022, Aftermarket suspension upgrades are typically reserved for hot hatchbacks, performance SUVs, or sports sedans and coupes, but Bilstein's latest product is intended for motorhomes. Because the B6 Camper shocks are available for the Fiat Ducato, Citroen Jumper, and Peugeot Boxer siblings, they would also fit an Opel / Vauxhall Movano or a RAM ProMaster, as they are essentially the same van. These vehicles were chosen because they serve as the foundation for more than half of all motorhomes in Europe. According to Bilstein, their product is also available for semi-integrated vehicles.
