The global Yacht Industry is projected to reach US$74.7 billion by 2022, driven by the rising interest in luxury cruising among high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals particularly in developing regions of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. The market is richly benefiting from the growing trend towards marine tourism and water-based sports and leisure activity. Large yachts also called super yachts which are custom built and come with a premium price tag are poised to witness strong demand. Manufacturers of cruiser yachts are focusing on luxury features, thoughtful and futuristic seafaring designs, performance and craftsmanship, all of which are vital for delivering the most memorable on-the-water experience. The United States represents the largest market worldwide. China is forecast to register the fastest CAGR of 8.1% over the analysis period, driven by rising personal wealth of citizens, growing base of millionaires and billionaires, rising interest in yachting as a leisure and sporting activity, growing international dominance of Chinese yacht manufacturers based in Guandong and Shandong, and government plans to develop marine infrastructure for supporting yachts in the country.
