This only shows that the company you are speaking of has poor market share it doesn't show that the market is small.
The total revenues for the UK boating industry, including the value of exports, was £1,838 million for 2003 (source: BMF 2004 data)
When i asked about the size of the UK market in 2003 the BMF said:-
Number of rigid inflatable boats (over 2.5m and 20kg) produced in UK, 2003
Which really isn't helpful
having said that it is remarkable how few +7,5m boat were made.
