Analyst Review

The spinnaker pole is a crucial component for controlling different types of sailboats. They push the spinnaker out to windward, increasing its exposure to the wind and avoiding the disturbed wind behind the main sail, thus, controlling the spinnaker trim, as well as adjusting the clew height using the lift (uphaul) and kicker (downhaul).

Furthermore, key players are implementing various strategies such as business expansion, product development, collaboration and partnerships, to strengthen their market position and to improve the product portfolio. For instance, in June 2021, Allen Brothers announced that it has been working on some major projects for marine industry, which include manufacturing of new tapered mast and pole for the Dragon Fleet.  

The market for spinnaker poles was dominated by Europe. Europe produces the most spinnaker poles and exports them to other countries. On a worldwide scale, Germany, France, and the Netherlands are the top exporters of sailboats. The Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at a fast rate. Companies are investing in boats in response to rising consumer expenditure on luxury tourism and exclusive vacation. This factor is expected to increase spinnaker pole sales in this region. Europe is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period followed by Asia-Pacific. Key players operating in the market are AG+Spars, Allen Brother LTD, Axxon Composites, Competition Composites, Inc., CST composites, Hoel Composites, Offshore Spars Co., Selden Mast AB, Sparcraft, and Z Spars UK.
