Palm Beach, FL – March 16, 2022 – News Commentary – Rising consumer expenditure on leisure boating activities owing to increasing disposable income in Europe and North America is driving the industry growth. Technological advancements in leisure boats are expected to augment the industries. Boat manufacturers are integrating joystick piloting to improve maneuverability of the vessel and enhance recreational boating operations. Companies are investing in smart technologies, such as IoT & AI, for developing connected boat solutions to enhance boating experience.   According to GM Insights the Recreational Boating Market size surpassed USD 35 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at over 6.5% CAGR between 2021 and 2027. It said: “The growing popularity of outdoor activities along with increasing participation of adult population in recreational boating and water-based sports is likely to spur the market revenue. A steady increase in fishing activities and rising investment in the rental boat sector will propel the demand. Prominent industry players are collaborating with rental communities to support the rental recreational boating market.”  Active stocks in the markets this week include Boatim, Inc.

Another report from Arizton added: “The global recreational boating market size to reach USD $63.53 billion in 2026, growing at a CAGR of over 11.02% during the period 2020-2026. The leisure boat market is undergoing several transformations. The marine industry is witnessing an increasing appeal among end-users for advanced and innovative features such as joystick docking controls, automatic trim controls, and digital throttles and shifts. Consumers have less time developing driving skills with the hectic lifestyle and compiling practical experience on the water with the hectic lifestyle. Thus, their reliance on automatic controls is growing at an unprecedented rate. The increasing focus on artificial intelligence is the critical technology process that is likely to be implemented in the marine industry. Artificial intelligence can be used to grow corals that are more immune to high sea temperatures and improve salinity and other variables. In the shipping industry, artificial intelligence makes things easier by impeccably incorporating new shipping logistics and communication technology to develop the business model within the industry.  North America and Europe are likely to lead the recreational boat during the forecast period, growing at CAGRs of 10.97% and 9.45%, respectively through 2026.”
