Global Portable Kayaks Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

portable kayaks are kayaks that can be easily transported and used in different locations. they are often light weight and made of durable materials so that they can be easily moved.

Inflatable Kayaks:

Inflatable kayaks are a new concept in the portable kayaking industry. They were first launched in 2012 by designers from Portland who had developed an innovative way to convert an ordinary ball into a flat, deflated raft with two comfortable seats and room to store gear. The product was later commercialized by its original designer Eric Gans and his company Inflateco LLC, which also happens to be the largest manufacturer of inflatable boats across North America.

Folding Kayaks:

Folding kayaks are small watercraft made by folding the traditional kayak and then assembling the same way as a chair. These foldable boats can be easily transported in a car, van or truck bed due to their light weight. Additionally, these boats offer easy storage and setup making them an ideal choice for people who enjoy camping but lack space in their recreational vehicles (RV).

Application Insights:

The household application segment accounted for the largest share of over 60.0% in 2017. Portable kayaks are increasingly being used at home as they offer easy storage and can be kept inside the house, ready for use, along with protection from theft or damage. Moreover, these boats have a seating capacity which allows more than one person to travel together in comfort and ease.

Moreover, increasing number of outdoor recreational activities is also expected to drive the regional product demand over the forecast period. Europe portable kayaks market is majorly driven by Germany due to presence of a large number of manufacturers and distributors coupled with high purchasing power there. In addition, rising awareness regarding health benefits associated with sea or lake swimming is anticipated to fuel regional product demand in future as well.
