Recreational Boating in the US by Product and Region, 11th Edition
Published: March 31, 2018 Content info: 199 Pages
Description

Demand for recreational boating products in the US is expected to show strong growth between 2017 and 2022, driven by a healthy economy and increased consumer spending. Rising home values and low interest rates will provide consumers with access to equity and loans, which can be used to make luxury purchases. Advances will also be supported by increased penetration of technological advances, like joystick controls and digital dashboards. Outboard powerboats and their propulsion systems will continue to be key to the industry's recovery. Favored for their lower price point, versatility, and performance, outboards are expected to continue to dominate the powerboat market.

‘Recreational Boating ’ answers these questions and more:

  • Given the dominance of outboard motors, what is the outlook for competing propulsion systems?
  • What is the industry doing to appeal to new demographics?
  • What is Rec Lite and how is it reshaping the personal watercraft segment?
