From lighting accessories and controls to GPS systems, today’s recreational and luxury boats are equipped with a wide range of high tech accessories that require dependable connectivity. Like the components used in the manufacture of mechanical watercraft assemblies, marine accessories must have the ability to withstand not only continual exposure to water but harsh outdoor weather conditions. The challenging marine environment also requires components and connectors that resist corrosion.

Marine Tech Industry is Growing

According to market reports, the marine technology industry is experiencing rapid growth. The Recreational Boating Market – Global Outlook and Forecast 2021-2026 says the trend will continue as the leisure boating market is expected to undergo further growth and transformation:

“The marine industry is witnessing an increasing appeal among end-users for advanced and innovative features such as joystick docking controls, automatic trim controls, and digital throttles and shifts. Consumers have less time developing driving skills with the hectic lifestyle and compiling practical experience on the water with the hectic lifestyle. Thus, their reliance on automatic controls is growing at an unprecedented rate.”
