Country-wise Insights

Why are Boat Light Manufacturers Queuing Up in the United States?

The U.S. boat lights market held a market share of 89.3% of North America in 2021 and is poised to expand at 5.8% CAGR over the projected years.

The increase in large-scale infrastructure investment projects in the boating industry is expected to boost the growth of the boat lights market in the country. High penetration in the United States is due to busy port operators in the country. Ports serve as important transportation hubs that facilitate goods movement across the country and to international markets as well.

The year-over-year flow of products and passengers has increased, and, as such, more infrastructure, provisioning, and related services are required. These will provide varying degrees of economic and national benefits to boat light suppliers operating in the country.

Why is China Set to Be a Lucrative Market for Boat Light Manufacturers?

The China boat lights market is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 8.9% between 2022 and 2032. Along with developing infrastructure, the maritime industry is also growing side by side.

  • The Cruise Yacht Branch of the China Transport Association predicts that the total number of yachts in China will increase from 38,100 to 163,510 between 2020 and 2025.

The latest technology is used by manufacturers to make existing boats more attractive to the younger generation. Consumer spending, rising disposable income, low-interest rates, and healthy growth in the boating market are factors expected to have a positive impact on the sales of recreational boats, in turn driving the growth of the boat lights market in China.

Category-wise Insights

Which Technology in Boat Lights Holds Dominant in the Market?

LED type boat lights are expected to hold a market share of up to 81.6% globally at the end of 2032.

LEDs have a longer life expectancy than previous lighting systems. LEDs not only take up less space but also come in a variety of colors. LEDs also do not produce radiation, making them ideal for usage in boats.

LEDs are more energy-efficient as they produce less warmth and are themselves are smaller in size. LED lights generally produce more light and consume less electricity. According to Fact.MR, LEDs will replace halogens and other boat lights significantly, and will enjoy a dominant position in the market.

Will Fuel-powered Boats Continue Driving Market Demand?

Fuel-powered boats hold a market share of 65.2% in 2022.

Hydrogen fuel cells are about to make an appearance in recreational boating. The boating industry now uses diesel and gasoline as a source of energy to operate the boats. However, hydrogen cells, unlike batteries, do not run out of power or have to be recharged as long as there is a continual supply of fuel, which will drive the fuel-powered boats segment in this market.

Boat lights, sometimes known as side lights, are used for a variety of reasons in the boating industry, including signaling. They are also employed in the fishing business since aquatic fishing lights attract fish and can lead to extremely better fishing success than fishing without them.
