Outlook of the global bodyboard market

Bodyboarding has been a stepping stone for many of the world's top surfers and helps beginners learn surfing more easily. The recent rise in surfing activities from across the globe has boosted the growth prospects of the surfing industry. The International Surfing Association (ISA), a global governing authority for bodysurfing, introduced educational courses to increase the popularity of bodyboarding. These courses aim to develop the knowledge, abilities, and skills required for surfing. The ISA focuses majorly on surfing regions like Indonesia in APAC and the US in North America. This governing body has also partnered with the Surf Education Academy in the US to increase the number of courses offered in the country. The global bodyboard market will grow at a steady rate during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of over 7% by 2020.

An important trend spurring the growth prospects for this market is the introduction of bodyboards with different designs. In order to gain maximum market shares, the manufacturers of bodyboards are attempting to improve the design and manufacturing of bodyboards. The introduction of new technologies by the manufacturers and designers allow surfers to use highly-advanced bodyboards with high-performance capabilities. For instance, Kevin Doherty of Design Icon introduced an electrical bodyguard, which operates on a rechargeable battery. The bodyboard is fitted with motors and can be used above or below the water surface. The availability of such advanced products and the advent of boards like the snorkel aboard will help to increase its sales during the forecast period.
