Electric Trolling Motors Market to Face Sluggish Growth during COVID-19 Pandemic; Penetration of Digital Platforms Set to Create New Opportunities, Predicts Fact.MR


by Team Fact.MR

The global electric trolling motors market is expected to surpass a value of US$ 546 Mn by 2020-end, and expand at a CAGR of 3.2% during the forecast period (2020-2030). The rampant spread of COVID-19 is resulting in declining sales, as a number of anglers are staying indoors, which ultimately impacts the sales of electric trolling motors. To maintain business continuity during this crisis, manufacturers are utilizing digital technologies and engaging customers via online portals. Subsequently, the pandemic has shifted consumer focus towards e-Commerce platforms. Moreover, there are several trolling motor manufacturers who have started providing trolling motors through their websites. This, in turn, will strengthen the demand for electric trolling motors.

Manufacturers are aligning with the current market trends and are focusing on offering anglers with tremendous opportunity to fish effectively. For instance, they are integrating motors with GPS systems, which enables the angler to fish at the same spot the next day. This is anticipated to increase the demand for trolling motors and create ample opportunities for players operating in the electric trolling motors market.
