Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Sea and Coastal Passenger Water Transport industry covers a patchwork of water transport services that carry business and leisure passengers between two destinations or on round trips. While some of these services are feeling the squeeze, others are innovating and developing their markets. Tight economic conditions, high costs and fierce competition have all negatively affected the performance of the industry over the past five years. As a result, industry revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 0.3% over the five years through 2015-16, falling to £2.8 billion in 2015-16. Factors such as the level of household disposable income, the price of oil and trends in tourism tend to determine revenue fluctuations from year to year.
