ExportersIndia.com, one of India's largest searchable B2B marketplaces and exporter directories that connects manufacturers, exporters, suppliers, and buyers to generate online trade opportunities and buyer enquiries, said that demand for trekking equipment is witnessing a sharp surge ahead of the monsoon season. Adventure Sporting & Trekking Goods top the list, followed by tents and trekking bags.
Between the on season (1 March 2017 to 15 May 2017) and the winter season that had just gone by (15 October 2016 to 31 December 2016) Adventure Sporting & Trekking Goods registered a whopping 145.45 percent traffic difference, followed by tents, at 89.65 percent and trekking bags, at 18.18 percent. It is interesting to note that, people are increasingly choosing monsoons for trekking, over winters, which had been a more popular choice amongst travel enthusiasts.
ExportersIndia.com’s business model is based on a pay per view model, wherein the buyer’s requirement is converted to a supplier’s lead. All relevant leads are the generated based on the products and services displayed, and payments are made only to view the chosen leads that attract the attention of the buyer and seem worthy enough to be procured.
Speaking on the trend, Mr. Sunil Gupta, founder and director, of ExportersIndia.com commented, “Truly interesting trends we are witnessing of late. While the summers saw demand for ACs, water coolers and power inverters crossing the highest mark in India compared to countries like China, Sri Lanka and Taiwan in the same summer period, now ahead of the monsoons we are witnessing massive demand in trekking equipment, like tents, adventure sporting goods, trekking bags and gears. Though monsoons are not quite a trekking-friendly season it still is not stopping the true blue trekking addicts.”
