The report categorizes the global snorkeling equipment market into four major product segments. They are:

  • Snorkels
  • Snorkeling masks
  • Snorkeling fins
  • Other snorkeling equipment

Snorkels market

Snorkel is used for breathing air from above the water surface while snorkelers' face is submerged. The snorkel has a piece of rubber that attaches the snorkel to the outside of the strap of the snorkeling mask. The dry top technology is considered as a revolution in the snorkel market, as it prevents water from entering the snorkel when the snorkeler submerges. This helps snorkelers to dive a little deeper to observe marine life.

The global snorkels market is the fastest-growing market in the global snorkeling equipment market because of its high replacement rate. On an average, it is advised to replace a snorkel after using it for a month or two or 30 times. Aqua Lung International and Cressi Sub are the major competitors in the snorkel market.

Snorkeling masks market

Snorkeling masks are a viewing device used to view the underwater world. A snorkeling mask creates an air space in the front of a snorkeler's eyes, which is required by them to focus correctly.

Lightweight and large-size masks are made to cater to those who want to go light and those who want to cover the major portions of their face to enjoy longer time under water. These masks offer snorkelers an unrestricted 180° field of vision, and a double air-flow system to prevent the mask's lens from fogging. Moreover, breathing becomes easier in these kinds of masks because of their large size.

The replacement period of a mask is high because of quick wear and tear. On an average, a mask can be used around 50 times. The average price of the mask varies based on technology and style,” says Arushi.

Snorkeling fins market

Snorkeling fins are worn on the feet and are used for in-water locomotion. Fins provide snorkelers with easy movement through the water and allow them to achieve greater distances than snorkeling without fins. They are attached to the feet by way of either a shoe-like foot pocket or a half foot pocket with a heel strap.

Fins are available in several types like closed foot fins, open foot fins, split fins, and paddle fins. Some fins' styles are environment-specific while others are for specialized use. Therefore, fins are made based on consumer preferences.

Other snorkeling equipment market

Other snorkeling equipment includes snorkeling vests and underwater cameras. A snorkeling vest is mainly used to provide means of resting to snorkelers in case they become overexerted while being in the water. A simple addition of air orally to the vest offsets all negative buoyancy, and allows snorkelers to remain comfortably afloat until they are rested enough to continue. Snorkeling vests are highly recommended to children and people who are not very well versed with swimming techniques. Some people use the vest to protect themselves from sunburn.

Rising interest in underwater photography has contributed a bit to escalate the growth of underwater cameras. However, due to high price of cameras, not all people opt to purchase cameras.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Aqua Lung International
  • Cressi Sub
  • Seavenger
  • Tabata
