Marine Engines Market Research Report

Marine engine market is expected to expand at ~ 4.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Marine Engine Market are machines used to provide power to marine vessels such as commercial vessels, offshore support vessels, and other vessels. These engines are made up of crankshaft, liner, pistons, bedplate, and head. These components are made of corrosion-inhibiting materials, and their seals and bearings are specially designed for the sea operating environment. Developing new technologies and manufacturing processes in the marine engine industry have addressed the environmental regulations on the emission of harmful gases. Characteristics such as fuel efficiency, easy maintenance, high performance, reliability, quiet operation, and low harmful emissions make marine engines suitable for marine applications.

Market Dynamics

Rapid growth in shipbuilding activities worldwide has recently been one of the main factors driving demand in the marine engine industry. Growing demand for luxury vessels, such as cruises and yachts, as a result of increasing disposable income among individuals, has been a significant sponsor of increasing demand in the marine engine industry. The global increase in demand for commercial vessels, like bulk carriers and gas carriers, has contributed significantly to the rapid growth of the marine engine industry.

The marine engine market is expected to have substantial developments over the forecast period due to continuous technological advancements in the marine sector linked to growing sea-borne activities. The market is also likely to have a significant number of expansion activities by multinationals and well-established firms. Mergers and acquisition activities are likely to be seen during the forecast period, with many contracts and agreements between leading manufacturers and shipbuilding companies around the globe.
The global market for marine engines is expected to have incredible growth over the projected period. This is attributed to the massive increase in the number of leisure marine travelers, the rapid expansion of the global seaborne transport industry, the introduction of technologically advanced and highly reliable engines, economic stability, and rising individual disposable incomes.

Market Segmentation

The global market for marine engine has been segmented based on power, application, and fuel.

  • Based on power, the global marine engine market has been segmented into Up to 1,000 HP, 1,001 HP to 5,000 HP, 5,001 HP to 10,000 HP, 10,001 HP to 20,000 HP and Above 20,000 HP. Among these, the 1,001 HP to 5,000 HP is projected to lead the marine engine market through 2023. The increase in the manufacturing of small and medium-sized vessels is driving the 1,001 HP to 5,000 HP segment, as 1,001 HP to 5,000 HP range engines provide ideal power output and are highly fuel-efficient. 
  • Based on the application, the global marine engine market has been segmented into commercial vessels, offshore support vessels, and other vessels. The commercial vessels segment led the market in 2016 and is projected to be the fastest-growing application segment. Commercial vessels like bulkers, container ships, cargo vessels, LNG carriers, LPG carriers, pure car carriers, chemical carriers. The rise in the commercial shipbuilding industry and commercial sea-borne activities has augmented for growth. 
  • Based on the fuel, the global marine engine market has been divided into heavy fuel oil, intermediate fuel oil, marine gas oil, marine diesel oil, and other fuels. Heavy fuel oil led the market in 2016 and is projected to be the fastest-growing fuel over the next five years. Heavy fuel oil is inexpensive as well as they are extensively available. Nevertheless, with stringent emission norms coming into effect, there will be an increase in the demand for cleaner-fuels such as Intermediate Fuel Oil, Marine Diesel Oil, and Marine Gas Oil.
