Fishing Waders Market

Neoprene Fishing Waders to Account for 34% of Global Market Revenue, Projects Fact.MR

Published : 11 Oct 2021 Industry: Consumer Goods

Fact.MR’s recently published report on fishing waders forecasts the market to exhibit positive trends, registering a CAGR worth 7.3% across the 2021-2031 assessment period. By the end of the aforementioned decade, the industry is slated to reach US$ 2 Bn in value terms. Increased frequency of recreational fishing will principally drive future market demand.

From 2016 to 2020, the market registered steady growth, expanding at a CAGR of nearly 5%. Prospects temporarily dwindled during the COVID-19 pandemic, attributed to curbs on outdoor recreational activities. This was eventually offset, as plateauing infection curves permitted a resumption of such activities, particularly since Q4 2020.

In the future, it is expected that global demand for fish and other marine products is likely to rise. The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture report published by the Food & Agriculture Organization claims that global fish production reached nearly 179 million tons in 2018. This number is anticipated to rise to 200 million tons by 2029, increasing by 25 million tons, or 14%, from the 2017-19 base period. Hence, demand for fishing waders to undertake fishing operations is bound to increase.
