Global marine scrubber systems market share is set to witness growth owing to increasing sulfur emission from ships along with rising concern toward pollution by ships. According to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) directives, ships are required to reduce SOx both inside & outside Sulfur Emission Control Areas (SECAs). Moreover, MARPOL has introduced norms with an aim to prevent pollution in sea by fuel & other toxic constituents. Stringency in these norms is anticipated to drive the installation of Exhaust Gas Cleaning (EGC) technology commonly known as scrubbers. These systems are efficient sulfur abatement technologies that eradicates particulate matters by 70% and SO2 by 90%. Moreover, rising concerns pertaining to environment sustainability, adverse effects of SO2 emissions on human health and increasing R&D initiatives toward green shipping will complement the business outlook. IMO, in January 2015, introduced norms to limit emission from PMs and has reduced the SOx release across the ECAs to 0.10%. Furthermore, the MEPC (Marine Environment Protection Committee), introduced a global limit of 0.5% on sulfur fuel content in 2016 that will go into effect on and after 1st January 2020.

Closed loop units witnessing an ongoing consumer shift toward clean scrubbing process

Wet marine scrubber is set to witness growth on account of long-term operational flexibility along with less payback period. This technology is categorized by closed loop, open loop, & hybrid systems. Hybrid technology will grow at a high rate owing to greater flexibility & adjustability pertaining to closed and open loop cycles. Moreover, these systems operate in varying water alkalinity levels further strengthening the product adoption. In addition, low energy consumption and cost efficiency will positively impact the demand for dry scrubbers. This device does not utilize any liquid for the process instead uses a dry chemical for removing the sulfur compounds.

Demand for low emission and sustainable units driving the installation of MGO systems

The Marine Gas Oil (MGO) fuel will grow owing to its ability to generate comparatively low concentrations of sulfur and particulates in the atmosphere. The increased penetration of the fuel across various locations including the polar regions, the North Sea, the Caribbean Sea, the Baltic Sea, and North American waters have further enhanced the industry landscape. The fuel is a blend of heavy gas oil, which is in a higher price range in comparison to its counterparts. The increased adoption of the fuel by ship owners, specifically in SECAs, is further stimulating the demand for scrubbers. Moreover, the hybrid fuel market witnessed a significant turnaround in the recent years owing to the rising concerns toward the environmental protection coupled with strict IMO norms. Further, the growing need to meet the new ECA regulations has encouraged the shipping companies to develop new technologies with an aim to combat pollution.

Commercial applications are projected to contribute the highest share to the marine scrubbers market share. Rapid industrialization across the developing economies along with increasing long international voyage will stimulate the product installation. The commercial segment includes container vessels, tankers, bulk carriers, and roll on/roll off ships. Rising sulfur emission from the ships along with growing environment concerns accompanied by the development of innovative EGC technology is projected to propel the business landscape. In addition, accelerating demand to retrofit existing vessels will encourage the business growth. Significant trade growth coupled with the development in the shipping industry is in turn leading to an increase in the product demand. Further, the rising government investments to strengthen the national security with advanced shipping line are leading to the development of advanced vessels complementing the industry outlook.
