The global Amphibious Vehicle market was valued at USD 3.15 billion in 2022 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. An amphibious vehicle, also known as an amphibian, is a vehicle that can operate on both land and water. These vehicles are specially designed and built to navigate through water bodies and overcome obstacles on land. Amphibious vehicles are used for various purposes, including military, transportation, tourism, and rescue operations. They are equipped with features such as water jets, wheels, and propellers, which enable them to move efficiently in water and on land.
Amphibious vehicles come in different sizes and shapes, ranging from small recreational vehicles to large military-grade vessels. They can operate on both fresh and saltwater, and some are even designed to operate in extreme weather conditions, including snow and ice. The design of an amphibious vehicle is critical, and it must be engineered to balance the requirements of land and water navigation.
The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing demand for amphibious vehicles from various end-use industries, such as defense, tourism, and transportation. The need for amphibious vehicles in military operations, rescue operations, and adventure tourism is expected to drive the market growth. Additionally, the development of new technologies and materials for amphibious vehicles, which enhance their efficiency and performance, is also expected to boost the market growth. However, high costs associated with the production and maintenance of amphibious vehicles may hinder the market growth. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for amphibious vehicles from the defense and tourism sectors in countries such as China and India.

Impact of COVID
The amphibious vehicle market has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in terms of supply chain disruptions and a decrease in demand. The lockdown measures and social distancing regulations have resulted in factory closures, delays in production, and reduced workforce, leading to supply chain disruptions. Additionally, the decline in consumer spending and the economic downturn has reduced demand for leisure vehicles, including amphibious vehicles. However, the market is expected to recover as the pandemic situation improves and economies stabilize. The increasing demand for adventure tourism and recreational activities is expected to drive the growth of the amphibious vehicle market in the post-COVID-19 period.
Mode of Propulsion Insights
Water-jet: Water-jet propelled vehicles use a pump to draw water from beneath the vehicle and then expel it out through a nozzle, creating thrust. This type of propulsion is efficient and allows for a high degree of maneuverability in the water.
Track-based: Track-based vehicles use tracks or treads similar to those found on a tank to propel the vehicle both on land and in water. This type of propulsion is effective in rough terrain and is commonly used in military applications.
Screw propellers: Screw propeller propelled vehicles use a propeller, similar to those found on a boat, to propel the vehicle through the water. This type of propulsion is effective and efficient but can be limited in maneuverability in shallow waters.
Surveillance and Rescue - This segment includes amphibious vehicles used for military, law enforcement, and emergency response purposes. The segment is expected to hold a significant market share due to increasing demand for security and emergency response vehicles.
Water Sports - This segment includes vehicles used for recreational activities like amphibious ATVs, hovercraft, and others. The segment is expected to grow at a significant rate due to increasing interest in water sports activities and tourism.
Water Transportation - This segment includes vehicles used for passenger and cargo transportation over water bodies. The segment is expected to hold a significant market share due to increasing marine transportation activities and demand for eco-friendly transportation solutions.
Excavation - This segment includes vehicles used for dredging and excavation activities in water bodies. The segment is expected to grow at a steady rate due to increasing demand for maintenance of waterways and ports.
The defence segment is expected to hold the largest share of the Amphibious Vehicle Market due to the high demand for amphibious vehicles in military operations. Amphibious vehicles are used in naval warfare, amphibious landing operations, and troop transportation. Many countries are investing in the development and procurement of advanced amphibious vehicles for their defence forces.
On the other hand, the commercial segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period due to the growing demand for amphibious vehicles in tourism, transportation, and infrastructure development activities. Amphibious vehicles are increasingly being used in tourist destinations and cities with water bodies for sightseeing and transportation purposes. Additionally, they are also used in coastal and offshore activities such as dredging, marine construction, and oil exploration.
The Amphibious Vehicle Market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years due to the increasing demand for amphibious vehicles for both military and commercial applications. The rising need for maritime security and border patrol in coastal areas has resulted in an increased demand for amphibious vehicles.
Moreover, amphibious vehicles are increasingly being used in the tourism industry for water sports and sightseeing activities, which is further boosting market growth. The development of advanced and technologically innovative amphibious vehicles is also expected to drive market growth in the future.
In terms of geography, the Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the Amphibious Vehicle Market, followed by North America and Europe. The growth in the Asia Pacific region can be attributed to the increasing demand for amphibious vehicles in countries such as China, India, and Japan. The North American market is also expected to witness significant growth due to the presence of major amphibious vehicle manufacturers in the region.
