The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Surfboard Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global surfboard market size reached US$ 2.7 Million in 2021. A surfboard refers to a narrow and elongated plank used by surfers for riding ocean waves. It is produced using various materials, such as polyurethane, polyester, fiberglass, and Styrofoam. A surfboard is available in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the experience of the riders and the kind of waves they intend to surf. As a result, there has been an escalating demand for surfboards for recreational and competitive sports.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Surfboard Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the emerging trend of surf tourism across the globe. In addition, the introduction of advanced product variants represents another major growth-inducing factor. Nowadays, electric surfboards are gaining popularity over conventional surfboards as they provide superior torque and high-water propulsion and allow individuals to surf without waves. Besides this, various key players are introducing sustainable surfboards made using eco-friendly materials while reducing carbon footprint during manufacturing. They are also adopting advanced technologies, such as computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems, to help individuals modify surfboards according to their specifications. This, coupled with the growing popularity of adaptive surfing among disabled people, is positively influencing the market growth.
