Global Hovercraft Market valued approximately USD XXX billion in 2017 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XXX % over the forecast period 2018-2025. Hovercrafts have become one of the comfortable and profitable means of transportation in many countries around the world. Hovercrafts are also referred as air cushion vehicles and are extensively used for military and commercial applications. A hovercraft is a vehicle which is specially designed, to be wholly or partially supported, at least some of the time during their travel over the surface by a thin cushion or film of gaseous fluid which is generally air. The air is supplied continuously at a rate which is enough to maintain the supporting pressure of the cushion of the air retained below the surface of hovercraft. The hovercraft needs both propulsion power and lift power for operating at a desired condition and speed. This can be achieved using various methods including the use of propulsors such as engines and lift fans. Depending upon their design a hovercraft is classified in various types such as: skirted hovercraft, Captured air bubble aircraft, simple plenum chamber hovercraft, sidewall hovercraft, peripheral jet hovercraft, recirculation hovercraft and trunked annular hovercraft. The hovercraft manufacturers are now focusing on designing the hovercrafts in such a way that they are capable to attain high speeds in harsh industrial and commercial environments

The regional analysis of Global Hovercraft Market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World.  Market is anticipated to boost up in Western Europe, owing to increasing involvement of multinational conglomerates in designing quieter and high-speed hovercrafts which can be used for commercial purposes along with transportation of passengers. This will increase the demand of hovercrafts in Western European countries over the assessment period. In Middle East and Africa many governments of Middle East region are increasingly focusing on designing more efficient hovercrafts for military applications. This will further increase the sales of hover craft in the said region over the forecast period. The market is anticipated to have a moderate growth on the North America and APEJ region over the assessment period
