The market research analysis categorizes the global rafting equipment market into three major product segments. They are:

  • Protective rafting gear
  • Rafting accessories
  • Inflatable rafting boats

Global protective rafting gear market

This segment of the global rafting equipment market includes helmets, rescue throw bags, and personal floatation devices or PFDs. The segment occupies the highest share of the market and is also expected to grow at the fastest rate in comparison to all the other rafting equipment. This is primarily because protective rafting gear products are used in bulk by rafting participants and water sporting institutes. Apart from the need to equip rafting boats with different sizes and formats of most of these products, they also require periodic replacements. The average pricing for all these products together stands at about USD 100, which makes the segment have a sizeable share of the market.

Global rafting accessories market

The second important revenue generating segment in the rafting equipment market includes products like rafting paddles and dry bags. Like the inflatable rafting boats, paddles are also designed for different heights, abilities, budgets, and the kind of rafting being practiced. While plastic and aluminum paddles are cheaper options in the market, carbon fiber shafts and blades are much lighter, offering better performance. The average price of paddles is about USD 75, and their market is expected to grow at the second-fastest rate in comparison to all the other product segments.

Global inflatable rafting boats market

Inflatable rafting boats are a basic requirement for pursuing and practicing rafting. An inflatable rafting boat is composed of a lightweight boat with its sides and bows made with flexible tubes that contain pressurized gas. Some inflatable boats are also designed such that they can be disassembled and packed into a small volume of space for easy transportation. Various styles of one-way valves are also used to add or remove air from these inflatable boats. Some inflatable boats also include the feature of inter-communicating valves, which help reduce the effect of air loss due to punctures.

“Fabric bottom inflatable boats are the most commonly used inflatable boats for recreational purposes like white water rafting, water skiing, inflatable rescue boat racing, and fishing, because these boats can be easily deflated, folded, and stored in compact bags for convenient travel,” says Brijesh.
