DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vlfsx9/global_scuba) has announced the addition of the "Global Scuba Diving Equipment Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Scuba Diving Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 3.68 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the rise in disposable income levels of consumers. The increase in per capita income, especially in developing countries has led to an increase in the demand for recreational scuba diving equipment worldwide.
Key vendors dominating this space include American Underwater Products Inc., Aqualung International S.A., Johnson Outdoors Inc., Mares S.p.A., and Sherwood Scuba LLC.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Apollo Sports USA Inc., Aeris, Aquatec-Duton Industry Co. Ltd., Bauer Compressors Inc., Beuchat International S.A., Body Glove International LLC, Cressi Sub S.p.A., Dive Rite Inc., Diving Unlimited International Inc., H2Odyssey Inc., Henderson Aquatics Inc., Huish Outdoors LLC, Tsun Kuang Hardware Mfg. Co. Ltd. (Saekodive), Watermark Scuba Inc. (Seasoft Scuba), and Zeagles Systems Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The increase in the transition from beginners to seasoned recreational divers is increasing the demand for diving equipment that facilitates diving deeper, staying underwater for longer durations or carrying more equipment. Many diving equipment manufacturers are thus responding by launching new lightweight and more sophisticated products to address the changing needs of divers. New buoyancy compensators, which can provide lots of buoyant lift with larger ballast pouches and cargo pockets than standard buoyancy converters, are becoming increasingly popular among regular divers. Additionally, vendors are focusing on developing drysuits which can withstand lacerations, abrasions, and punctures better than the drysuits that are currently available in the market. Many products incorporating high-tech materials that are strong yet lightweight and flexible yet resistant to chemicals are being marketed by global manufacturers.
