Worldwide Industry for Diving Suits to 2026 - Inclusion of Advanced Technology In Dive Gear Presents Opportunities - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 18, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2020--

The “Diving Suit Market - Global Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The diving suit market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 4% during 2021-2026.


The global market is witnessing a slew of innovations and technological developments. Over the years, the diving industry has observed advanced technology, aiming to increase safety and security.

Modern scuba kits are consistently evolving as new equipment and apparatus are emerging in the market. New technology is now making diving attractive to a wide range of people. The use of technology is not only limited to breathing equipment but also dive wear. Vendors have started manufacturing drysuits designed with revolutionary materials such as stockinette fabric coated with vulcanized rubber. These materials are not only lightweight but provide improved flexibility, safety, and warmth while deep-sea diving. Hence, increasing innovations in materials and applying new applications in suits are likely to drive the market.

The following factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the diving suit market during the forecast period:

  • Technological Development in Dive wear
  • Growth in Coastal Tourism
  • Establishment of Diving Centers
  • Adoption of Diving Kits in Water-based Activities

The study considers the present scenario of the diving suit market and its market dynamics for the period 2019-2025. It covers a detailed overview of several market growth enablers, restraints, and trends. The report offers both the demand and supply aspect of the market. It profiles and examines leading companies and other prominent ones operating in the market.

This research report includes a detailed segmentation by product, end-user, buyers, price, fabric, distribution, geography. Wet and semi-wet suits are largely used in free, scuba, skiing, boating, kayaking, treasure suit, cave diving, and other water sports-related activities. The demand for diving suits is expected to surge due to the increasing interest in water events and the growing number of centers. The rise in underwater explorations and expeditions to study marine life is propelling diving suit demand. The APAC semi-dry suit market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast. APAC is anticipated to emerge as a profitable region for semi-dry suits. Moreover, the growing number of wave parks and artificial waves is expected to provide significant industry growth opportunities.


In terms of material, the neoprene segment is likely to dominate the market as the material is the main component of wetsuit outfits worn by surfers, divers, and other water sport enthusiasts. North America contributed 42% revenue share of the neoprene fabric segment and is expected to observe an incremental growth of over $45 million during 2021-2026. Although the demand for double-backed neoprene is growing, singled-backed neoprene continues its usage for several specific purposes. Rubber suits are conventional and are suited for commercial diving. However, with consistent product innovation and changing consumer requirements, the market is likely to decline during the forecast period.

The institutional segment is expected to generate over $488 million by 2026 on account of the growth in centers and diving certification institutes. Institutional buying is also increasing as people across the world are exploring water sporting activities. Besides, the growing number of water adventure parks, including artificial waves, increasing diving facilities, and water-based activities at resorts, are the key drivers for the institutional segment’s growth.

Low and moderately-priced diving suits constitute the major revenue segments in the global diving suit market. These outfits are used in recreational activities such as surfing, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, free scuba, and other water-based activities. Emerging countries with diving destinations such as French Polynesia, Malaysia, Cuba, Oman, Norway, and Tanzania are becoming the most potential markets. Oman is gaining popularity in the Middle East & Africa region. The moderately-priced segment is expected to reach a revenue of over $418 million by 2026. The increased tourist participation in water-based activities such as scuba, snorkeling, and other activities is likely to increase moderately-priced suits’ demand. The high priced segment is witnessing popularity among divers as specialized suits offer added features such as sealing, stitching, and flexibility.
