Boat Building in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Boat Building in Canada

As a highly discretionary purchase, boat sales plummeted amid the recession. Several companies were forced to exit the industry, and low demand, coupled with volatile steel prices, limited profitability. However, over the next five years, rising consumer confidence and favourable exchange rates are estimated to boost industry revenue slightly. Still, the lead time for boat building is high and forecasting production is difficult given demand is affected by several unforeseeable factors, such as weather.

This industry is composed of establishments that build boats, which are defined as watercraft not built in shipyards and typically intended for personal use. This does not include establishments engaged in the Ship Building industry (IBISWorld report 33661aCA).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
