Insights on the Amphibious Vehicle Global Market to 2027 - Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecasts -

·3-min read

DUBLIN, July 23, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Amphibious Vehicle Market by Mode of Propulsion, Application and End Use: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027" report has been added to's offering.

Amphibious vehicles refer to a wheeled or tracked vehicle capable of operating on both land and water. Different types of amphibious vehicles used in the market include busses, trucks, hovercrafts, aircrafts, tanks, and military combat vehicles. The amphibious vehicles are primarily used by the military forces across the globe to secure the sea borders from increasing conflicts via sea and to transport military troops from ship-to-shore. In addition, amphibious vehicles are widely used for surveillance, rescue, excavation, water transportation, water sports, and recreational activities.

The factors such as rise investment in defense sector and increase in demand for commercial applications are expected to drive the market growth. However, high initial cost of amphibious vehicle and increase in operational costs followed by serviceability hinder the market growth. Further, surge in the use of advanced amphibious combat vehicles (ACV) in marine applications and rise in demand for amphibious excavators for dredging and excavation are some of the factors anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for market growth.

The market is segmented on the basis of mode of propulsion, application, end use, and region. By mode of transportation, it is divided into water-jet, track-based, and screw propeller. By application, it is classified into surveillance & rescue, water sports, water transportation, and excavation. By end use, it is categorized into defense and commercial. By Region, it is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has forced governments to focus on their spending on healthcare and safeguarding the economy, which could possibly result in shifting priorities away from defense spending.

  • Market players are anticipated to experience decrease in demand due to declining budgets and procurement priorities and a flattening of the growth curve over the long term
