The International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) has released the latest edition of its Recreational Boating Industry Statistics. The trade association’s membership is estimated to represent more than 80% of the world’s leisure boating business, making ICOMIA well positioned to provide an international compilation of data covering the industry’s diversified and varied segments.

Highlights this year include an entry from ICOMIA’s newest member, the Sri Lankan Boat Building Technology Improvement Institute, and a special report on the state of Australia’s marine export and superyacht industries, courtesy of the Australian International Marine Export Group.

As usual the book includes detailed market analysis on the industry’s largest market countries, global summaries of key product segments from 24 countries, export/import data for international trade in boats from 41 countries, marine engine statistics from ICOMIA’s Marine Engine Committee plus international boat show statistics and the Superyacht Group’s Annual Report.
