Recreational Boating - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US recreational boating product sales will rise 6.1 percent annually to $13.1 billion in 2018. The dominant powerboat segment will benefit from newer engines that add versatility, such as those for pontoons that can pull inner-tubers or skiers. The personal watercraft segment will be aided by its low cost, entry-level market position.

This study analyzes the $9.7 billion US recreational boating industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by material (e.g., plastic, aluminum, coated fabrics), product (e.g., traditional powerboats, personal watercraft, sailboats, propulsions systems) and US regional market.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 41 industry competitors, including Brunswick, Yamaha Motor and Bombardier Recreational Products.
