'Green' user-friendly picnic trolleys on the rise

Non-PVC designs are increasing. The latest releases include heat-sealed and six-wheeled models.


  • "Green" inputs: China suppliers are replacing phthalate-containing PVC with safer and more environment-friendly materials. PEVA lining is increasingly used in picnic trolleys padded with EPE foam. For the coating, PU is the primary choice.
  • Design upgrades: Makers are opting for heat-sealed lining seams to prevent leakage and improve temperature retention. Such liners are removable for convenient cleaning.
  • Six-wheeled models: Recent releases are fitted with two sets of three wheels for a smoother motion, even up a flight of stairs.
  • Sales outlook: Exports are on a downward track due to the economic crunch in the EU and the US. To boost revenue, many suppliers are exploring business opportunities in other destinations, including South America and Southeast Asia.
  • Price forecast: Product quotes are expected to remain at current levels for the next six months amid steady raw material costs.
