In Japan, school swimming pools, children’s pools, leisure pools, pools for health and rehabilitative use, competition pools and pool renovation form the major demand for this segment. By material, pools can be categorized into FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastics) pools, metal pools and concrete pools.
[Reference] Advantages of FRP Pools
FRP is a strong, lightweight material that molds easily. FRP pools are resistant to weathering and ear thquakes and retain heat well.
Construction time is also shorter because the units from the factory are simply assembled on-site.
Background of the Business
Utilizing FRP technologies cultivated in its boat development and manufacturing, Yamaha Motor commercially released Japan’s first 100% FRP pool in 1974. Yamaha has supplied a large number of pools across Japan since then.
We have achieved top position in aggregate domestic shipments of school pools, and recorded strong sales of pools for preschools in recent years.
Current Business and Market Conditions
As swimming pools at public facilities, kindergartens and nursery schools, and elementary and junior high schools increasingly deteriorate with age, demand for renovations to extend their useful life is increasing.
Pools are being used at social welfare facilities and private swimming clubs for safe walking and exercise to improve the health of the elderly and persons with disabilities.
Yamaha Motor is proactively expanding its product lineup with pools for a variety of purposes for different generations and lifestyles, while at the same time introducing new technologies and equipment to make pools
environmentally friendly through re-use and recycling.
We are also developing 25-meter pools and children’s pools for overseas markets, primarily South Korea and other nearby Asian countries.
