ICOMIA launches latest statistics book


The latest annual statistics book from ICOMIA (the International Council of Marine Industry Associations) is now available, providing the recreational marine industry with global boating statistics.

The ICOMIA Statistics Book sums up international activity. This year’s edition, for the first time, includes market data from China. In addition to statistics collated from MIAs, the Statistics Book includes trend line graphs showing boat production, outboard engine, PWC and diesel engine sales over the past eight years for Finland, Japan, New Zealand and the USA (provided by ICOMIA’s Marine Engine Committee).

The Statistics Book also offers detailed national reports on the industry’s largest market countries and statistics on the superyacht order book (courtesy of ShowBoats International/Boat International Media). The statistics are based on information from 2011.

The Statistics Book also presents results of a 2012 survey summarizing mid-year market trends across 23 responding countries.

Representing the global marine industry since 1967, ICOMIA has 35 marine industry association members estimated to represent more than 90 percent of the global boating business.
