Global Industry Analysts estimates the worldwide surfing industry will be worth more than €13 billion by 2017.The availability of public surfing facilities and artificial reefs has made surfing far more accessible to a wider customer base than in previous years.Surfing has also benefitted from fashion trends to become a well-established market.Though traditionally a younger person's sport,surfing is appealing to more women and older demographics.It continues to become more affordable and accessible.Demand for longboards,which are ideal for learning to surf,is rising in tandem with the growing number of surf schools,both factors fuelling market growth.Professional surfing outfits including the European Surfing Federation and the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association are attracting new surfing enthusiasts through educational and promotional initiatives.Other factors impacting the global surfing industry include consumer demographics,levels of disposable income and the economic climate.The industry is also influenced by seasonal and fashion-led changes.Market maturity and a falling-off in birth rates in established markets will limit market growth,with the US and the EU dominating the global surfing market.Surfing equipment and apparel sales fluctuate depending on demographic trends,with over-30s buying fewer board shorts and t-shirts than younger surfers.Non-surfers also purchase surfing accessories and apparel as a fashion choice.
