Holiday Homes |
The NCC collates generic reports from the regular supply of production and sales data it receives from its member manufacturers. The products represented are tourers, motorhomes, holiday homes (all these are leisure accommodation vehicles) and residential park homes. This information is distilled into monthly reports which members use for benchmarking purposes and which also act as the basis for forecasting. Individual company data is held confidentially and not shared. Market share information is not produced by the NCC.
The UK market is also supplied from non-member sources, mainly from Continental Europe. Individuals may also make private purchases from overseas. The proportion of total UK sales related to this varies from sector to sector, but is not significant. In the annual data the NCC produces for public consumption, allowances are included for such non-member activity.
In the UK, it is estimated that there are in current use:
= nearly 1 million leisure caravans
There are over 2,000 licensed holiday/touring parks in UK, the majority in rural areas where tourism is vital to the local economy.
