The global amphibious vehicles market is segmented, based on propulsion, into following categories:

  • Propeller
  • Jet propulsion

Amphibious Vehicles Market 

Jet propulsion amphibious vehicles led the overall amphibious vehicles market in terms of revenue. Jet propulsion offers higher efficiency and proves to be faster technique of propulsion as compared to propellers. Introduction of jet propulsion in the amphibious vehicles has provided the much needed speed which can reach up to 55 Knots. With a significant rise in utilization of amphibious vehicles for water sports, the demand for the amphibious vehicles with jet propulsion is set to witness a considerable growth throughout the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.

Propellers are used in a wide variety of military trucks and tanks as they offer better speed control and silent operation as compared to jet propulsion. However, due to their inefficiency and problems associated with propellers, the demand for such vehicles has declined considerably in the past few decades. The overall amphibious vehicles with propellers are expected to demonstrate a sluggish growth in the following years.

The global amphibious vehicles market is segmented, based on end-use, into following categories:

  • Defense
  • Commercial

Amphibious Vehicles Market 

In 2016, the defense end-use segment dominated the overall amphibious market. Currently, amphibious vehicles play a vital role in modern day warfare. Various critical activities such as surveillance, invasions during war and rescue operations can be effectively carried out with the help of amphibious vehicles irrespective of the terrain. In addition, a variety of amphibious vehicles including wheeled, tracked and hovercrafts are extensively used for border patrol and transportation of soldiers and other military cargo. Thereby, the demand for such vehicles for military and defense applications is expected to grow consistently in the following years.

The commercial end-use segment trailed the defense end-use in the global amphibious vehicles market in terms of revenue in 2016. The demand for amphibious vehicles has been growing at a brisk pace for commercial applications such as sports and adventure, excavation, research and recreational activities. Moreover, the introduction of sophisticated and reliable amphibious vehicles has resulted into higher its higher adoption in public and tourist transportation. Thereby, the commercial end-use segment for amphibious vehicles market is set to expand consistently throughout the forecast period.

The global amphibious vehicles market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, into the following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • The Middle East and Africa
    • Latin America

Amphibious Vehicles Market

In 2016, North America dominated the overall amphibious vehicles market in terms of revenue. The amphibious vehicles market in North America is primarily driven by the demand in the U.S. Growing incorporation of amphibious vehicles in various units of the U.S. defense agencies has escalated the growth in the amphibious vehicles market in the country.
