Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: A trend which is helping boost market growth is technologically advanced surfboard-manufacturing machines. Manufacturers have introduced advanced manufacturing techniques to improve and shorten the manufacturing process. Computer-aided design (CAD) has simplified the design process.

This saves a considerable amount of time compared to the traditional methods of building boards manually.
