    Market Highlights

    Personal watercraft (PWC), often known as water motorbikes, is a type of watercraft having a hull that is driven by an engine. The watercraft is designed in such a way that it does not hold water if it capsizes. These are swift and have the ability to change direction in the water. Furthermore, it is controlled by a person who either stands or sits on the watercraft. It is gradually becoming a popular choice for sports and recreational activities.

    Manufacturers are concentrating on developing technologically advanced PWCs that result in less pollution. PWCs have been powered by two-stroke engines since their inception, but because of advancements in technology, they are now driven by state-of-the-art four-stroke engines.

    The PWCs market did not witness any decline since 2011, proving the segment as one of the most attractive ones in the family of powerboats and Powersports. Even in 2020 when most of the vehicle types registered an enormous decline, PWC came out as the high-growth segment and registered double-digit growth. Overall, in the long run, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2022-2027 to reach a value of US$ 3.6 Billion by 2027.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    Based on the type, the personal watercraft market is segmented as recreational, muscle, luxury, performance, and sports. Recreational watercraft is estimated to remain the most dominant type during the forecast period. One of the primary factors driving the growth of personal watercraft is the increased engagement in water sports activities around the world. The growing demand for personal watercraft among police organizations, such as maritime police, to ensure the safety and security of persons engaged in watersports as well as its significant utilization as a recreational and sporting alternative, are propelling the market growth.

    Similarly, based on the seating capacity, the market is segmented as stand, 1-seating capacity, 2-seating capacity, and 3-seating capacity. It is expected that the 3-seating capacity segment would dominate the market during the forecast period, owing to the large preference of the users for the same.

In 2021, the region accounts for over 80% share of the global market. This is largely due to the presence of numerous original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the increasing demand for personal watercraft in the region for recreational and sports applications.
