Enhancements in picnic mats & blankets boost user convenience

Recent releases can be folded into a tote bag or backpack. Padding and bacteria-resistant materials are adopted in several models.


  • User comfort emphasized: More picnic mats and blankets are fitted with loops or straps to make these easier to carry. When folded, such designs resemble a tote bag or backpack. Certain models have built-in pillows for added convenience.
  • More padded designs: Models with foam padding will continue to increase. A number of recent releases use fabrics specially treated to resist bacteria, mold and mildew.
  • Aesthetic options: Checkered and striped designs remain popular. For printed models, flowers, animals, cartoon characters, portraits and landscapes are the main options. Bright and neutral shades are offered.
  • Export outlook: Makers are optimistic of achieving 10 to 15 percent growth in overseas sales this year. The EU and the US are expected to be key markets.
  • Price forecast: Most China suppliers see product quotes climbing 5 to 7 percent in the next six months. Higher raw material and labor costs, together with the appreciation of the yuan, are projected to push rates upward.
