Global Cruise Ships Market SEGMENTATION 



The growth of the market kept pace since this decade as per the statistics but as compared to the previous year there was a significant decrease and a net loss of $19 Billion USD as the current revenue for cruise in-scope (multi-day cruises, ocean cruises and river cruises) beholds $7.8 Billion USD for the year 2020.


Most users from working class segment accessed the cruise services from age of 25 – 44 consolidated a wholesome 51.6% as compares to the other age groups as per the market research survey.


The penetration rate of the cruise segment has significantly decreased significantly for this year and the number of users is estimated to pace up and normalise after three years probably. The cruise users segment decreased by 20,947 from the previous year and expected to increase 8967 users from the current subscriber base of 8055.



The largest ship operators in the world as per the market share are: Carnival Corporation, Royal Caribbean Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Ltd consolidating almost 75% of the gross total of $45.6 billion where all are headquartered at Miami, Florida, USA.


These companies use offshore to avoid an exorbitant pay of $90 billions on the taxes. The cruise lines are only expected to pay around ($4 – $15) ranging when reaching at the port. As per the statistical comparison and data provided by New York Stock Exchange, in the span of two months from January 2020 to March 2020,the stock prices of Carnival Corporation and Royal Caribbean Cruises fell by -63% and -80% respectively.

It was expected in the cruise industry, the supply chain system will pace up as the supply of the tourist or passengers would surmount the demand in the coming years.


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, the cruise industry has been badly affected due to the two most prime factors: low media coverage, lesser involvement of government (as the government is currently working on emphasizing the focus on safety parameters of the people due to the ongoing virus outbreak) and the global cruise market comes under travel and tourism industry have faced a severe decline in global sales with lesser supply and demand as compared to the statistics of the previous years.


Since April 2020, Y-O-Y change the US sales are decreased by -83% in the cruise industry due to the coronavirus epidemic turned pandemic. After growing this business from past decade and putting a hefty $42 billion under the cruise belt, the outbreak has evaporated the net capital in no time damaging the image of this sector.


The optimum challenge is to make a resilient supply chain to increase the operations (vessels and containers), selling old ships and applying new tactics to seek revenue. The major challenge is about the workforce management (People management) of the cruise facility during this pandemic.


During the rise of the pandemic, The Star cruises in Hong Kong signed a contract to have made a temporary housing engagement of foreign workers and moved to go digital by giving customers a soothing experience by just sitting at home and enjoying the cruise on a digital mode. But the real cruise experience hits different.


The future prospect for the next year is people are starting to rebook and the supply chain (despatch of vessels and containers have already started). The growth in future is expected to be less but would gain the confidence of the customers.
