What’s Augmenting the Sales of Marine Seats?

“Expanding Marine Tourism Activity Worldwide”

In recent years, marine tourism has gained immense popularity around the world and this is expected to be a key trend that is projected to favor demand for marine seats in the future. The increasing capacity of cruise liners and the growing spending of people on cruise ship trips and other forms of marine tourism activities are also projected to uplift market growth over the next ten years.

The cruise industry took a major hit in 2020 as the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic resulted in lockdowns around the world and restricted international travel of any form. The cruise industry has been recovering for the past couple of years and is projected to expand at a good pace to attain its pre-pandemic growth levels in terms of passengers and revenue going forward.

  • As per statistics listed on the Cruise Mummy website, around 13.9 million passengers traveled through cruise ships in 2021, which was only 46% of passengers that were recorded in 2019.

“Delivery of New Cruise Ships”

The shipbuilding industry is in full recovery mode after the snag that it hit in 2020 due to the outbreak of coronavirus. The launch of several new cruise ships and boats is projected to create a highly lucrative market for marine seat suppliers across the forecast period.

  • Royal Caribbean Group, a leading name in the cruise ship industry, is expected to debut its 'Icon of the Seas' cruise liner with a jaw-dropping maximum passenger capacity of 7,600 people and a gross tonnage of around 250,800, which is expected to be higher than any other ship in the world at the time of its launch in 2024.

Will Japan Be an Investment-worthy Market for Marine Seat Suppliers?

“High Demand for Maritime Transportation Leading Marine Seat Shipments”

Japan is heavily reliant on maritime transportation for the import and export of precious commodities. Marine transportation also plays a crucial role in the delivery of goods across 400+ islands of Japan and is a key domestic transportation pathway for Japanese people. The presence of key shipbuilding companies and a robust shipbuilding infrastructure are other factors that could potentially uplift marine seat sales over the coming years in Japan.

The launch of new cruise trips in Japan by international cruise liners has resulted in a rising number of Japanese cruise travelers over the past decade and this trend is estimated to remain relevant across the forecast period.

Which Factors Make Europe a Lucrative Market for Marine Seat Producers?

The aforementioned factor is projected to bolster sales of boat accessories such as boat seats, boat seat cushions, boat seat upholstery, marine steering wheels, etc. in the European region throughout the forecast period.

Increasing ownership of speedboats and yachts by high net-worth individuals in European countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom is also a key prospect that is slated to boost demand for captain boat seats and custom boat seats in the future.

Which Type of Boat Accounts for High Marine Seat Demand?

Cruise ships are the most common type of deck boats that are projected to lead shipments of marine seats in the future. The rising popularity of marine tourism, growing availability of affordable cruise trip packages, and rising consumer spending potential are some of the key factors that are anticipated to bolster sales of marine seats for deck boats in the future.
