Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Power Market size is expected to cross USD 126 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of marine propulsion and auxiliary power was over USD 11 billion. The shipping industry is committed to cutting back on CO2 emissions and fuel use. In order to comply with strict energy restrictions, they are implementing engineering adjustments and implementing renewable and alternative energy sources. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) will implement new rules in January 2020 that will restrict the sulfur content of marine fuels used by ships in international seas to 0.5% by weight. This represents a decrease from the prior worldwide cap of 3.5% established in 2012. Therefore, it is expected that the imposition of strict energy requirements will boost the market value of auxiliary power and marine propulsion in the coming years.

The increase in the marine industry's use of fuel-efficient technologies and the long-term growth of global trade and commerce depends on the marine and shipping sectors is set to boost the marine propulsion and auxiliary power market growth

Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Power Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Market-Growth-Drivers

Growth Drivers

  • High Focus on Eco-friendly Fuels - Over the projected period, it is expected that the marine industry's increased focus on environmentally friendly fuels will boost marine propulsion and auxiliary power market development. Propulsion and auxiliary power units are widely used because they have low running costs and little administrative work. To get a larger market share, companies in the worldwide marine propulsion and auxiliary power sector are creating electric propulsion systems.
  • High Integration Rate of Marine Transport - Over the course of the forecast period, market statistics should rise due to the high rate of adoption of maritime transport for international trade. More than 90% of all global shipping capacity is handled by marine transport throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Consequently, the region has a major influence on the expansion of the marine propulsion and auxiliary power markets worldwide. With regard to energy efficiency, the government has not given it much assistance.
  • Advancement in Propulsion Technology - Continuous R&D efforts are resulting in the creation of more effective propulsion systems that can lower pollutants and fuel consumption, which is a major factor in the marine propulsion and auxiliary power market expansion.

Challenges

  • Increasing Cost of Fuel - Fuel is one of the largest operating costs for shipping companies, and the cost for shipping companies and the cost of fuel has been rising in recent years. This has put pressure on shipping companies to find ways to reduce fuel consumption, and this has led to the development of a number of new technologies such as waste heat recovery systems and hull optimization.
  • The Demand for More Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Propulsion Systems is Expected to Pose Limitation on the Market Expansion in Future.
  • The Growing Complexity of Propulsion Systems are Expected to Hamper the Market Growth in the Upcoming Period.


Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Power Segmentation

Fuel Type (Diesel, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Natural Gas, Battery, Ammonia, Hydrogen)

Based on fuel type, the diesel segment is set to hold 25% share of the global marine propulsion and auxiliary power market by the end of 2036. It is expected that during the period under consideration, it will be dominant in this sector. The mixture of hydrocarbons obtained through the distillation of crude oil is diesel fuel. For various fuel grades and in a variety of countries, the specifications for diesel fuels vary. The growth of this segment can be attributed on the back of diesel engine technology advancement. Diesel engine manufacturers are constantly developing new technologies that enhance the efficiency and emissions performance of their engines.

Vesel Type (Tankers/Carriers, Barges/Cargo Vessels, Tugboats, Defense Vessels, Ferries, Yachts, Cruise Ships)

In terms of vessel type, the ferries segment is set to dominate the global marine propulsion and auxiliary power market by the end of the forecast period registering a CAGR of 30%. Ferries are vessels of any size carrying passengers and vehicles on fixed routes over short cross-water passageways in many cases. These vessels are intended for the purpose of transporting passengers across a variety of water bodies. Heavy fuel oils and marine diesel are most commonly used on ferry services. An increase in the number of ferries that switch from diesel to heavy fuel oil is expected to drive this segment.
