Boat Steering Market 2018 Analysis by Growth, Major Manufacturers, Competitive Strategies and Forecast to 2026


Boat steering systems comprises a wheel, steering cable, helm, and cable connections. These equipment are linked to the wheel to the engine. Among these components, helm is the most important component as it converts the rotary motion of a wheel into a push-pull motion, which further moves the boat right or left. Helm is connected to a mechanical or hydraulic system, which is responsible for changing the vertical angle of the craft. At the point when a ship is made to guide at the left hand side it is called as, ‘swinging to the port side’ and when it is made to control to right side, it is called as, ‘swinging to the starboard side’. The primary components in a boat steering system are telemotor, control unit, and power unit.

According to World Trade Organization, in India transport export by sea accounted for around 66.2% and transport import by sea accounted for 61.4%, in 2016. This is one of the major factors supporting the growth of transportation via sea route, which in turn, is further expected to aid in growth of the boat steering systems market.

However, advent of smart steering systems is one of the major factors expected to restraint growth the of global boat steering market during the forecast period. These smart steering systems are expected to replace mechanical and hydraulic steering systems used by conventional boat manufacturers.

Boat Steering Market Key Restraining Factors

The key factors expected to restraint the market growth are labor-intensive manufacturing processes and government regulations regarding environment protection. For instance, according to Federal Refuse Act, the discharge of fuel, oil, oily wastes and hazardous substances is completely prohibited into the waters of the U.S. or the waters of the contiguous zone. In addition, under state law F&GC 5650 prohibits discharges of petroleum and other substances harmful to fish, plants, mammals, and birds.
