HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — It’s National Great Outdoors Month and nobody is more prepared for the popular summer business of getting back to nature than LINE-X, the leading manufacturer of high-performance protective coatings and industry-leading automotive and lifestyle accessories.
Following a record-setting 48 million households that went camping last year — and this number is predicted to increase — consumer spending on truck accessories and aftermarket services to outfit vehicles for the great outdoors is climbing at a comparable pace. This trend has propelled LINE-X beyond its global recognition as the leader in truck bedliners, gaining new market share for a long list of additional products. For example, the company’s Truck Gear accessories line has experienced 25% growth.
«Nobody could have predicted the huge spike in LINE-X business from the pandemic. Consumers with stimulus money drove more spending foot traffic straight to us when cabin fever took over alongside a historic rise in camping, overlanding and outdoor excursions,» said George Lezon, EVP of Operations. «We don’t envision these consumer purchasing trends stopping anytime soon.»
As consumer road trips continue to increase, so does the foot traffic to more than 550-plus LINE-X franchise locations across North America. LINE-X also has seen a 170% increase in digital consumer leads and online interest year over year.
Business has been strong for the LINE-X patent-protected spray coatings that offer lifetime guarantees and help vehicles navigate the most serious camping trails. Demand is also increasing for other outdoor products in the Truck Gear by LINE-X accessory line like coolers, floor mats, step bars, ratcheting tie-down kits, and tonneau covers.
According to a recent TripAdvisor survey, an estimated 74% of Americans planning to travel this summer will stay in the U.S. The National Park Service is advising travelers to do advanced planning for their journeys, and LINE-X is expanding that message to include the proper maintenance and durability needs of vehicles hitting the roads.
