As per estimates by Global Market Insights, Inc. the global water taxi market size is expected to cross $500 billion over 2024.

How will the emergence of autonomous water taxis impact the global water taxi industry outlook over the forecast period?

The rising demand for water taxis in the current scenario has given rise to significant efforts towards product innovation, thereby fueling industry growth over 2018-2024. One significant trend that has gained immense momentum among customers and industry players alike is the emergence of autonomous water taxis. These vehicles are powered solely through batteries run by solar panels and water-based energy and exhibit a range of approximately 80 to 100 kms.

Another technological trend gaining widespread acceptance is the adoption of U.S Coast Guard’s AIS (automatic identification system) vessel tracking data, which helps to gauge ship dwell time. These prominent developments are set to present lucrative growth opportunities to the water taxi market over the estimated timeline.

Which key product segment is poised to take the lead in the water taxi market share across the globe?

Considering the product landscape, it is observed that the sail boats segment plays a dominant role in the global water taxi industry and is expected to sustain this position with over 78% volume share by the end of 2024. These boats are used extensively for short distance commutes which is a prominent factor in their accelerated production rate. Furthermore, sail boats are highly cost effective, which is also likely to add impetus to market expansion in the sector.

Ferries, on the other hand, are expected to exhibit an appreciable growth rate at over 6% CAGR through 2024, as a result of higher affordability in terms of fare rates in comparison with other water taxi counterparts. Ferries are commonly used as a daily means of passenger transport, particularly for work commutes. Flourishing rate of production of the boats is another pivotal driver facilitating market expansion over 2024.
