Sun City Board’s CEO, Tom Wilson, has decided that Sun City should take advantage of the global surfing market. He has based his decision on the information he obtained from the industry study summarized below. You are cautiously optimistic about this opportunity and need to advise Tom on the management considerations Sun City must address before embarking on this endeavor.
In this assignment, you will outline and explain the key management considerations for going global, based on the information you’ve been given and the concepts you studied in your readings on globalization and business.
The global market for surfing is projected to reach US$9.5 billion by 2022, driven by growing interest in surfing both as a leisure and sporting activity, increased accessibility to surfing through surf parks and surf pools, and technology innovations focused on developing sophisticated surf-wear and surf-gear…. As warm water surfing in tropical locations turn crowded as a result of mass tourism, there is increasing interest in cold water surfing. The trend is expected to bring conventionally unpopular surfing locations into the spotlight, thus expanding the addressable market for surfing equipment and gear. The United States represents the largest market worldwide (49.0% market share) supported by the long-established surfing culture in the region and the resulting large base of surfer population. Australia is poised to grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.5% over the analysis period, driven by rising tourism, increased spending on family vacations, presence of several attractive national surfing reserves in the country, and the popularity of beach and surf tourism and recreation.
Key players in the global surfing market include O’Neill, Quiksilver, Body Glove, Volcom LLC, Rip Curl International Pty Ltd., and Billabong International Limited.
