APAC Outboard Engine Market size is poised to reach USD 2.02 billion by 2028, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.

The market growth is due to the growing demand for customized boats, together with the rising use of high-powered outboard motors in commercial and recreational applications will amplify product penetration across the region.

Enhanced economic conditions coupled with the increasing marine travel will aid the industry progress in the future. Improved boating infrastructure and encouraging regulatory policies will also support the regional demand for outboard motors. Government bodies across the APAC region are enforcing regulations and norms to ensure operational safety during leisure boating. The percentage of high net-worth individuals is growing at a steady rate across the region as well.

In 2021, the number of ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWI) in India grew by 11%, helping the country rank third in the global billionaire population. This has fueled the demand for luxury boats, propelling the deployment of high-powered outboard engines. The presence of several boat manufacturers across the region will support the APAC outboard engine market growth.

In APAC countries like New Zealand the number of people buying boats for recreational or commercial purposes rose post the coronavirus outbreak. For example, boat sales saw a notable jump in New Zealand during the lockdown in 2020. This trend continued in 2021 as well.

These factors accelerated the production of outboard engines to support the demand for small- and medium-sized boats and yachts.

China 4-stroke outboard engine market size will exhibit a 10% CAGR through 2028. Four-stroke engines come in a variety of power outputs, giving customers a wider range of choices. The engine also offers adaptive speed control features that maintain the revolution per-minute (RPM) regardless of the load change, enhancing a customer’s driving experience.

China was marred with numerous waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, which negatively influenced recreational boating activities. However, the government will gradually start easing various travel and movement restrictions to get its tourism sector back on track. For instance, the Chinese authorities have kickstarted the preparations for the 26th China (Shanghai) International Boat Show (CIBS), which will take place in March 2023. This event will showcase different types of boats, boat accessories & equipment, and services offered by the nation’s boat industry. Such exhibitions and initiatives will provide an ideal platform for companies to buy or sell boat components like outboard engines.
