The electric ships industry will experience a moderate slowdown in 2020 due to recent COVID-19 pandemic. Global trade limitation, temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities, and reduction in fund allocation towards R&D activities are major reasons limiting the growth. The retro fit segment will experience accelerated growth after conclusion of COVID-19 pandemic to cater demand to resume operations in shipping industry.
 

Versatile scope of operation due to dual power source will fuel the electric ships market growth

The hybrid ships segment will dominate the market with around 90% share by 2026. High penetration of hybrid ships can be attributed to their abilities to operate on both power sources, electric as well as conventional. This has resulted in more efficient and reliable source of operation, catering to the market demand.
 

For instance, in February 2019, Hurtigruten’s cruise ship announced the nearing completion of first hybrid cruise ship. The 140m long cruise ship can accommodate 530 guests and is built to sail in extreme conditions. The ship features integration of battery packs, allowing it to be 20% more efficient compared to the conventional ships. The ships plan to conclude three extreme expeditions including Antarctica by 2021.
