Tent manufacturers have been on a tear for years.
Their tents are typically built from plywood, and are used by outdoor enthusiasts, campers and even farmers.
But this year, tent makers are starting to capitalize on the market for tents by selling them to consumers.
The new “tent boom” is an increase in demand from consumers as the U.S. government moves to phase out its ban on camping and tent camping.
Tent manufacturers are hoping to make a quick buck by selling tents to consumers as soon as the ban ends.
“I think there’s a lot of pent-up demand right now,” said Scott Stoll, a vice president of research and analysis for the Outdoor Industry Association, a trade group that represents manufacturers.
“The tent industry is really booming right now.”
According to the Outdoor Research Group, tent sales in the U!
grew by 13 percent last year.
“Tent makers are very bullish,” said Mike Peebles, an analyst for Outdoor Brands Group, which is based in Denver.
“They’re making their money off of the idea of having tents and tent campers.”
Tent manufacturers have found ways to capitalize in a boom in demand for tents.
A recent report from Outdoor Brands found that there are nearly 6 million tents and tents accessories on the marketplace, and that sales are on the upswing.
The boom in popularity for tents comes as some states have banned camping and tents, including Texas and New Mexico.
A new rule in Texas prohibits tents on state lands and in public buildings, while New Mexico enacted a similar rule in April.
A new wave of camping products are available, including outdoor tents, camping stoves, camping chairs, and backpacking gear.
The trend is also being welcomed by outdoor-enthusiast groups like the Outdoor Adventure Institute, which has received millions of dollars in grants from the Outdoor Retailer Association to promote outdoor activities.
While some tent makers have found success selling to outdoor enthusiasts in the past, most have struggled with the surge in demand.
Tent makers have struggled to compete with the new product offerings.
Tent maker and producer Chris Gough said that as the boom in tent sales has accelerated, it has been difficult for manufacturers to keep up with demand.
“We’ve gotten so much more demand for the tent,” Gough told Axios.
“It’s almost like we’re just out of supply.
That’s not the case.
The industry is just kind of exploding.”

The B.C. Government is working on a tent ban, but not until next year, so manufacturers can continue to sell to outdoor groups.
Some tent manufacturers have already begun selling to camping enthusiasts.
Gough, however, said the industry is in an “inflection point.”
“If you look at it, it’s just a little bit of a crisis,” he said.
“You have a tent boom and you’re going to have some people who want tents, but there are also going to be some people that don’t.”
The U.K. government is planning to phase-out camping and camping in public places for camping, with a ban on tent camping in 2019.
“Camping has been an industry that’s been here for 100 years,” said Paul Jones, the director of the Outdoor Business Research Institute, an industry-funded research institute.
“So it’s going to take some time before we see a big boom.”
Jones said tent makers need to make sure their products are safe and comfortable.
He said some tent manufacturers are putting safety concerns above other concerns.
“A lot of tent manufacturers, especially with the tent boom, are looking to the safety and comfort of the people they are selling to,” he told Axio.
Jones said that some tent companies have tried to use a variety of marketing techniques to lure consumers into tent camping and the outdoor industry.
He noted that some manufacturers are making tent designs based on real-world designs from other manufacturers.
However, Gough of the BMT Outdoor Group said that most tent makers don’t have a good handle on safety.
“People need to understand that these are not tents, they are tent tents,” he added.
“We’re selling these to people who have tent camping experience.”
Jones has seen tent camping spike in popularity, but said it’s still not a mainstream outdoor activity.
“There are a lot more people out there camping,” he explained.
“People need a little more knowledge about how to properly camp in the woods and in the rain.”
Tented camping is a niche activity, but it’s not an uncommon one.
In 2015, the Outdoor Adventures Association reported that more than 200 million people worldwide camped in 2016, an increase of 8.5 percent from the previous year.
According to Outdoor Brands, the majority of people who camped are younger than 25
