According to the World Bank, HNWI accounts for less than 1% of the world’s total population and more than 40% of the world’s total wealth. The growing HNWI population is driving the spending on leisure activities, including yacht travels.

The increasing adoption rate of yachts has compelled manufacturers to invest in research and development on building yachts using high-strength composite material for physical structures. Significant amounts of R&D budgets are also assigned for the integration of technologies such as IoT that enable the exchange of information through a single network. Furthermore, the digitalization of propulsion systems has also significantly increased the efficiency of yachts, thus reducing fuel consumption.
