Moreover, due to the easy flexibility and customization, aluminium boat trailers are more preferable as compared to steel boat trailers. However, in salty water, galvanized steel boat trailers are preferred because galvanized steel is corrosion resistive in salty water.
- Growth in Marine Time Tourism
The increasing demand for boats and water crafts for recreational activities in developing and developed regions due to the increasing number of tourists in countries that are in close proximity to waterside bodies.
