A turbocharger is an important part of a marine engine since the exhaust gases are reused to improve the engine's overall efficiency. It consists of two components, turbine sides and the blower, that need equal attention when routine maintenance procedures are carried out. The growing requirements for reducing operating costs and increasing engine efficiency are likely to spur the market expansion during the forecast period. Stringent maritime emission regulatory framework and rising environmental concerns are expected to boost the demand for environmental-friendly ship engines. A change in engine manufacturers' tendency to conform to the emission limits of IMO Tier III will provide an optimistic outlook for the size of the industry.

Rising need for fuel-efficient marine engines is also propelling the adoption of marine turbochargers. To reduce fuel consumption at lower loads, modern ship motors are fitted with a large range of technologies. Upgrading existing equipment plays a vital role in optimizing the reliability and quality of operation. Technological developments in ship engines including intelligent tuning of engines will lead to product acceptance at all load points. Various studies have been conducted by several organizations, such as the UN Economic Commission for Europe, World Health Organization, and European Environmental Agency, on the deteriorating air quality and its effects on the environment.

Strong growth of radial marine turbochargers

The radial turbochargers segment dominated the global marine turbocharger market owing to its rising applications in small-sized four-stroke engines. Innovation in its designs with reduced emission levels and higher-pressure ratios will escalate product penetration. Moreover, cost-effectiveness and availability in various size ranges are predicted to enhance product adoption.

The axial marine turbochargers segment is poised to witness around 9.4% growth rate till 2026 due to surging applications in large two-stroke engines. Advancements in turbochargers with compact size and high capacity are significantly contributing to the reduction in weight and initial cost without compromising on power output. Additionally, improved part-load performance along with increased output and efficiency is anticipated to augment the industry growth.

Electro-assist turbocharger incorporates a compact and highly efficient electric motor that assists in the driving of the turbocharger. In 2014, Calnetix Technologies and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries developed a unique system called the Electro-Assist Turbocharger (EAT). It provides optimization of plant efficiency, especially when a ship is operating under slow steaming.

The marine turbocharger market for twin turbo segment crossed USD 80 million in 2019. A variety of requirements are imposed on modern ship engines including lower noise, higher output, better fuel economy, and the ability to use heavy fuel oil. Parallel or sequentially mounted twin turbos offer various advantages including improved power output, air pressure, & density, resulting in lower exhaust emissions and fuel consumption.

Development in compressor wheels to impel product sales

Turbine segment will hold 45% of the market share in 2026. Efficient extraction of energy from exhaust gases with minimal frictional loss is achieved using turbine wheels to move the compressor at the expected speed. The availability of turbine blades in various sizes and variants of nozzle rings will spur product penetration.
