SEOUL, June 8 (Korea Bizwire) – Amid the rising popularity of camping, camping equipment that is simple, convenient and easy to use is high in demand.
According to Gmarket, an online shopping mall, sales of simple and convenient camping equipment increased during the period from May 27 to June 2 compared to the same period last year.
Sales of automatic one-touch tents, which don’t require complicated assembly, increased by 65 percent, while sales of air mattresses increased by 27 percent.
Sales of multi-purpose tables, better known as IGT (iron grill table) tables, increased by 7 percent, and LED electric lanterns by 24 percent.
Several multipurpose and convenient one-touch products have also made the best-seller list in Gmarket’s camping product category.
Among them were the One-touch Pop-up Tent, which conveniently pops open with no need of additional assembly, and the Airpod Airbed, which can be inflated in five seconds without the need of an air pump.
The Universal Solar Lantern can be charged using solar energy, and its silicon material allows the lantern to be folded for easy portability. The lantern can also function as a waterproof pouch.
The CoolBiz MatBag is a multipurpose cooler-bag that can be used as an outdoor mat when fully unfolded.
“The latest camping trends are simplicity and convenience,” said a Gmarket official. “And such handy and often unique products are popular among camping fans.”
