Inboard Engines Market size to cross $2.5 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: March 3, 2023

Inboard Engines Market size is expected to reach USD 2.5 billion by 2032, according to the recent research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The expanding recreational boating sector and demand for other water activities is expected to drive the production and sales of boats and yachts across Europe. Countries such as France, Italy, Germany, and the UK are among the leader in yacht production in the region. The imposition of strict emission and noise regulations by the European Union has created lucrative growth opportunities for electric boats and ship manufacturers. Multiple developments in inboard engines along with the addition of features like less noise, longer lifespan, and a high aftermarket resale value, are likely to increase the industry demand.

Widespread application of electric inboard engines

The electric powered inboard engines market is expected to cross a valuation of USD 115 million by 2032. The growing popularity of these engines is due to the improvements in battery technology and their widespread availability. Electric engines create lesser noise and are comfortable to operate all while emitting fewer pollutants. They are excellent substitutes for day cruisers and smaller boats. Efforts to adopt cleaner energy sources that are more efficient would promote the sales of electric-powered inboard engines.

Lesser environmental impact by IC engines

The industry size from the IC engine segment is anticipated to dominate 95% share by 2032. The adoption of hybrid propulsion systems, which combine conventional IC engines with electric motors and batteries, is slowly becoming a popular trend in the marine transport sector. IC engines offer various advantages like lesser noise and vibration along with better fuel efficiency and lower pollutants. Employing alternative fuels like biofuels and compressed natural gas is expected to reduce the negative environmental impact of IC engines.
