Global Recreational Boating Industry Analysis and Forecast 2013-2018


   January 1 2013


The global recreational boat market is expected to witness high growth during 2013 and beyond because the boat market bottomed out recently. The global boat market is expected to grow to $23.8 billion in 2018 with significant growth over the next five years (2013-2018). Inboard and sterndrive boats are expected to have the highest market share in 2013 and keep their leading position in 2018.



Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global boating industry and presents its findings in “Global Recreational Boating Industry Analysis and Forecast 2013-2018.”



The growth in North America is expected to be the highest followed by ROW and APAC due to cruiser segment growth. Large companies such as Riviera, Horizon Yachts, and Sensation Yachts plan to target giga-yachts in immediate future. The market share for European boat market is expected to decline in terms of value shipment because of its relative lower growth rate. The shares for the North America boat market are expected to grow as this market is going to witness higher growth than average growth. The growth in APAC region is expected to come from China, India, Southeast Asia, and Korea, as sales are likely to be bolstered by continued economic growth in those countries.



Lucintel study indicates that the huge number of boat builders would make the industry less profitable. Also, the concentration of industry revenue in a relatively small number of major suppliers/industry leaders and product fragmentation more than compensates for the large number of suppliers competing for business.



This report provides a detailed assessment of the demand for the production of recreational boats including inboard boats, outboard boats, stern drive boats, and others on a global and regional basis. This market intelligence report provides the ranking of the top 10 global leaders with their respective market shares.
