Global Life Jackets & Life Vests Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A life jacket (US) or life vest (UK) is a piece of personal flotation equipment designed to keep a person afloat in water. The buoyancy of the device keeps the wearer's head above water.

Foam Jackets & Vests:

Foam jackets & vests are lightweight, flexible and comfortable protective clothing used in lifejackets and life vests. It is also known as personal flotation or buoyancy aid. Foam jackets & vest can be easily worn by people of all shapes and sizes which makes it more effective for use in commercial as well as recreational applications.

Inflatable Jackets & Vests:

Inflatable jackets and vests are waterproof, windproof, and insulated jackets/vests which can be deflated & rolled up into a small size for easier storage. These products have witnessed tremendous growth in the recent past owing to their use in various applications including life jackets & life vests. Inflatable jacket is used as an insulation layer between the user and cold water or harsh weather environment which helps avoid hypothermia or hyperthermia situations to the users.

Application Insights:

The adults segment held the largest share of more than 60.0% in 2017. The application of life jackets and life vests among adults is expected to witness a significant rise due to rising incidences of boating accidents and drowning cases globally. According to the statistics published by the U.S.-based National Safety Council (NSC), around 1,225,000 boating-related injuries were reported in 2016 across all age groups in the U.S.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global life jackets and life vest market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position through 2030. This can be attributed to high product adoption, rising water safety awareness, and government initiatives promoting marine safety. For instance, as per the U.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to increasing water-related accidents at sea coupled with growing marine tourism activities along coastal areas of countries such as India.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the importance of life jackets and life vests for safety while swimming or boating.
  • Growing popularity of water sports and activities, which is driving demand for life jackets and life vests.
  • Rising number of accidents involving boats and other water vessels, which is fueling demand for these safety devices.
