Global Watersports Impact Vests Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Watersports Impact Vest is a type of personal flotation device that is worn by athletes participating in water sports such as surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, and whitewater rafting. The purpose of a Watersports Impact Vest is to provide flotation and protection for the wearer in the event of an accidental fall or impact into the water.


Nylon is a polymer and it's base material is carbon. Nylon can be manufactured from different raw materials such as ethylene, propylene, and styrene. It has the ability to stretch in both directions; however, it cannot be shrinked or enlarged. This property makes nylon highly suitable for use in elastic lubes & cords that are used for stretching rubber & vinyl sheets of tires during vulcanization (the process of making them hard).


Fiber is a natural material and it's primary function is to carry light from one place to another. It also has some other functions like binding, insulation, and providing strength. Fiber can be used in various ways for different sports or activities. In watersports impact vest market, fiber is used as an ingredient that provides buoyancy or lift in water based sports like swimming or surfing etc.

Application Insights:

The adults application segment held the largest share of over 70.0% in 2017. The adult watersports impact vest market is driven by the rising number of sports activities at resorts, hotels and other locations where water sports are practiced such as surfing, wakeboarding, tubing and boating among others. Furthermore, increasing participation in extreme sports has increased the demand for safety gears including life jackets among other protective clothing which is further propelling growth.

The kid's application segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to growing awareness about safety along with regular swimming lessons being taken by kids across various regions especially in Asia Pacific.

Other applications include marine activities wherein people take boats out on sea waters sporting equipment including surfboards.

Regional Analysis:

Europe was the largest regional market in 2017 owing to growing water sports activities, especially in countries such as Germany, France and Italy. Countries such as Turkey and Greece are popular for their natural aquatic resources which attract tourists to participate in various watersports. The region is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing markets due to increasing awareness regarding marine recreational activities among people of China, Japan, South Korea and India. These countries have a long coastline that offers numerous opportunities for water based adventures including surfing waves at different locations, white-water rafting down swift currents or kayaking through narrow canyons with steep drops along them (known as riffles). This will create growth opportunities for impact vest manufacturers over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing popularity of water sports and activities: The global watersports industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the increasing popularity of water sports and activities, such as swimming, surfing, diving, sailing, and windsurfing.
