Research and Markets: Scuba Diving Equipment Market in South Korea 2014-2018: Major Driver is Increasing Number of Scuba Certification Courses Offered

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3jtwlg/scuba_diving) has announced the addition of the "Scuba Diving Equipment Market in South Korea 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Scuba Diving Equipment Market in South Korea to grow at a CAGR of 6.71 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing number of scuba courses and certification offered by PADI and SSI through various scuba diving schools in South Korea. The Glo Scuba Diving Equipment market in South Korea has also been witnessing the increase in the number of innovative products and scuba diving accessories in the market. However, the increasing availability of counterfeit products in the market could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space include Beuchat International S.A., Johnson Outdoors Inc., Mares S.p.A., and Nippon Sensuiki Co. Ltd.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Aeris, American Underwater Products Inc., Aqualung International S.A., Aquatec-Duton Industry Co. Ltd., Bauer Compressors Inc., Body Glove International LLC, Cressi Sub S.p.A., Dive Rite Inc., Diving Unlimited International Inc., H2Odyssey Inc., Henderson Aquatics Inc., Huish Outdoors LLC, Sherwood Scuba LLC, Tsun Kuang Hardware Mfg. Co. Ltd. (Saekodive), Watermark Scuba Inc. (Seasoft Scuba), and Zeagles Systems Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The better quality of diving fins into the Scuba Diving market in South Korea was one of the major trends observed in the Scuba Diving Equipment market in South Korea. For instance, there is rise in introduction of scuba diving with diving fin straps made of elastic, especially to be used by open water divers. However, these fins can also be used for various other purposes such as swimming, snorkelling, surfing practice, and windsurfing practice. The non-elastic diving straps suffer from drawbacks, due to which the new line of elastic diving fins straps is gaining popularity among regular scuba divers.
