Steering system is one of the pivotal component of any vehicle, necessary for stabilizing and enabling efficient and smooth maneuverability whether it’s an automobile, aero plane or a boat. A boat steering wheel is one of the part of the helm that connects hydraulic, mechanical or electric system to assist in turning the boat. From paddles to highly efficient electrohydraulic steering system, boat steering system design has evolved significantly. Selection of a boat steering system is based mainly on the location of the propulsion system. Boats with outboard motors require steering wheel to rotate the entire unit, an inboard motor utilizes a pod attached with the propeller while a watercraft uses jet drives to force  water into nozzle that allows the operator to turn to the desired course. The selection of efficient boat steering system also depends on the orientation of the propulsion system. If a boat is stern driven or an outboard, then a steering system has to be carefully selected too reduce feedback, which is effort to put on the steering wheel to just to go straight. With advent of autonomous systems to boats, the autopilot feature, which allows boat sailing without external help is also slowly gaining traction in the premium boat segment.

Global Boat Steering Systems Market Dynamics:

The recovering sales of the recreational boat industry has rejuvenated boat steering systems sales since the last four years. The market is further expected to expand with escalating sales yatch and small boats market in emerging markets. One of the pivotal factor increasing sale of global steering system market is the adoption of electro-hydraulic and hydraulic steering system for mid-size boats and yachts.
