LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global luxury yacht market report until 2020. This research report also lists 64 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

One of the key drivers of the global luxury yacht market is the increase in adventure tourism and recreational events across the globe. Tourism is a significant contributor to the economic growth, employment opportunities, and social development across the globe. This creates a significant demand for luxury yachts, wherein commercial or fleet operators form a significant part of the business. Europe has one of the largest and attractive ports for yachts.

Other important drivers of this market are high net-worth individual population and overall wealth, and growing number of luxury marinas. In terms of market size, the luxury yacht market was worth 392 units in 2015 and is expected to reach 550 units by 2020, registering a CAGR of just over 7%. The recent fall in prices for luxury yachts is likely to attract a high number of potential buyers, which will result in an exponential growth rate of the market growth during 2018, 2019, and 2020,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for automotive manufacturing research.

Competitive vendor landscape

The luxury yacht market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international and regional builders. International builders, in both the custom and semi-custom segments are increasing their footprint, especially regarding features such as quality, technology, and price. The competitive environment in this market is expected to intensify during the forecast period due to an increase in demand for new models, product and service extensions, and innovations in technology to lure custom boat buyers.

There is a high risk for vendors in this market as companies with better technical and financial resources can develop yachts that can make competitors' yachts obsolete and non-competitive, even before they are launched or able to help recover R&D and commercialization costs. Thus, to remain competitive in the market, vendors not only have to develop new technologies but also have to keep abreast of emerging technologies. This could have an impact on their product lines.
