Marine Propulsion Engine Market size worth $13.3bn by 2024
Published Date: October 10, 2016 Authors: Ankit Gupta
Marine Propulsion Engine Market size is set to reach USD 13.31 billion by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
High demand for operationally dependable and fuel efficient ships will drive the marine propulsion engine market share over the forecast timeline. Rapid innovation has led to the development of new energy efficient and high performance products. Industry participants such as Rolls-Royce and Wärtsilä have continuously innovated and extended their product offerings to cater to growing demand for capacity handling.
With decreasing demand for fuel bunkers, nuclear propulsion delivers more cargo space without refueling. Growing trend towards the development of the powerful engines in the shipping industry has been supplemented by the introduction of supertankers. Shift towards unconventional energy sources will fuel the marine propulsion market size over the forecast timeframe. Power derived from wind is free from exhaust pollutants. Solar power is also utilized as an auxiliary power source with the help of photovoltaic cells to generate electricity, thus driving the future of propulsion systems.
Growing efforts toward enhancing engine capacities and introduction of larger cargo holding capacity containers has led to rapid innovation and development initiatives. Depleting shale and conventional gas reserves has increased demand for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) as marine fuel. It is used in reciprocating engines owing to its effective combustion capabilities.
Fuel cells will witness substantial growth opportunities due to high performance characteristics in auxiliary propulsion and low-power machinery. The shipping industry has diverted its focus on reducing consumption of fossil fuel by developing electric motors, thereby contributing to energy efficiency.
Stringent emission regulations by International Convention for Prevention of Pollution (MARPOL) may hinder the market size over the forecast timeline. MARPOL regulations are principally applied for marine environment protection. Violations caused due to chemical spills, exhaust gases leading to air pollution, and contamination of oil and sewage waste may lead to severe penalties.
