Water Sports is projected as the most lucrative segment

Furthermore, amphibious assault vehicles (AAV) comprise of robust engines providing high speed and power in all-terrains. Also, these vehicles are reliable, versatile, equipped with guns and ammunition, and offer high performance during battlefield operations. Thus, countries across the globe are looking forward to procuring these vehicles for their robust defense system. This in turn, fuels the demand for amphibious vehicles market. For instance, according to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), military spending by the U.S grew by 5.3% to a total of $732 billion in 2019 and accounted for 38% of global military spending. Also, China was the second largest military spenders $261 billion in 2019, a 5.1% increase compared with 2018.

Rise in demand for commercial application

Increase in water transportation and water sports activities have led the commercial amphibious manufacturers to develop technologically advanced amphibious vehicles to fulfill the surge in demand from the commercial sectors. In addition, increase in usage of amphibious vehicles in various commercial activities such as land reclamation, excavation, water mud removal, waterway constructions, and others further boost the demand for amphibious vehicles. This factor positively impacts the growth of the amphibious vehicle market. For instance, in December 2018, Chennai Municipal Corporation, India, announced a plans to buy new amphibious equipment, a mini-amphibian, and amphibious robotic excavators to clean smaller water bodies under Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM).

Defense is projected as the most lucrative segment

High initial cost of amphibious vehicle

The adoption of advanced technology-based systems and equipment in the amphibious vehicles increases the initial cost of the vehicle. The design of the vehicle can be customized as per the applications. Thus, the systems used in the vehicle must be compatible with both land as well as water, leading to high expenditure. In addition, the engine used in these vehicles is different from the engine used in the land operated vehicles and has to be specially designed to operate on land as well as water. Such factors increase the initial cost of vehicles and thus are expected to hamper the growth of the amphibious vehicle market.

Growth in demand for amphibious excavators for dredging and excavation

Amphibious excavators are used for dredging, wherein land reclamation is a major application of dredging. An increase in use of amphibious vehicle excavators for dredging applications, such as maintenance of river beds, swamps, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth. In addition, rise in commercial and marine infrastructural activities such as bridge or waterway constructions, land reclamation & development, levee & wet lands reclamation, power line construction, and others across the globe also opens future growth opportunities for the amphibious vehicle market. For instance, in August 2019, Bell Dredging, a Dutch company specializing in engineering and manufacturing dredge equipment, expanded its fleet with an amphibious excavator that can work in shallow water and marshland.
