Global Life Jacket Market 2019-2023
About this market
Increased emphasis on streamlined and lightweight life jackets to gain traction in the market. Most life jackets are uncomfortable to the users because of their design and bulkiness. These products offer different ranges of buoyancy such as 50 N, 275 N, and 100 N. These are the floatation capacities expressed in Newtons, and with respect to life jackets, it is the buoyant force that a jacket produces. Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the life jacket market will register a CAGR of close to 6% by 2023.
Growing popularity of water sports tourism
With the growing water sports tourism industry, the demand for required equipment, such as life jackets, has increased significantly. The participation in sports such as water polo, surfing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, kayaking, boating, river rafting and river boarding has increased globally.
Frequent need for maintenance of life jackets
Inspection of life jackets on regular intervals is necessary to avoid last minute hassles or fatal accidents, which occur owing to leaks, fabric degradation, or inadequately installed CO2 cylinders. One of the most common reasons for poor failure of life jackets is the use of expired inflation canisters.
