Top 3 Factors Shaping the Boat Trailers Market

  • Use of High Strength and Durable Materials for Boat Trailers 

    In developed countries across the globe, aluminium is the most preferred type of material for manufacturing boat trailers due to its lightweight and corrosion resistive property. Apart from these features, aluminium boat trailers have high strength and long life as compared to steel trailers.

    Due to its lightweight, it increases the fuel efficiency of boat trailer’s towing vehicle and also require low maintenance as compared to other material trailers. 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. This factor is anticipated to boost the demand for new boats and water crafts, which in turn, increases the sales of boat trailers during the forecast period.

  • High Scale Competition among Manufacturers

    The boat trailers market is fairly fragmented as there are several tier-2 and tier-3 manufacturers in the market. Due to the presence of several boat trailer manufacturers across the globe, the competition for boat trailer pricing is high, which provides moderate to high power of bargaining to the customer of boat trailers. This factor is also expected to drive the growth of the boat trailer market.

Marine Tourists Uplifting the Market Potential of Developing Countries

Personal and commercial applicability of boat trailers has been attracting revenues to North America’s market. However, new growth opportunities are expected in developing Asian countries, backed by rising number of marine tourists and purchasing power of consumers.

Manufacturers thus continue to target these regions through production capacity expansion and stronger distribution networks. Sensing the growing popularity of marine tourism activities, companies are significantly investing in the development of cost-effective and durable products.
