“The marine gensets market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 3.71% from 2016 to 2021”
The marine gensets market is projected to reach USD 5.40 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 3.71% from 2016 to 2021. Growth in the ship-building industry along with rise in high value commercial vessels will be the main drivers for growth in the marine engines market. The marine gensets market is restrained by stringent emission norms for diesel engine and decrease in oil and gas exploration activities which has resulted in reduction of FPSO and number of offshore vessel.

“Commercial vessels: The fastest growing segment of marine gensets by vessel type”
The growth in the commercial vessels segment will be spurred by rise in maritime trade, a result of a surge in dry bulk carriers as well as rise in gas carrier vessels (LNG and LPG) due to increased demand for natural gas especially in economies such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea.

“Diesel fuel dictates the marine gensets market”
Diesel fuel will dominate the marine gensets by fuel-type segment market. Diesel fuel marine gensets is estimated to lose some market share to natural gas and alternative fuel gensets. One of the factors working against diesel fuel marine gensets is the increasing stringency of emission regulations occurring globally. Despite this hindering factor, diesel fuel gensets are still in high demand as they offer several advantages compared with other fuel types such as a longer engine lifespan, lower maintenance costs, and safe fuel storage.

“Asia-Pacific dominates the global marine gensets market”
Asia-Pacific will dominate the marine gensets market largely due to rise in ship-building activity in China, South Korea, and Japan. These countries are investing heavily in ship-building and the leading players are expanding their manufacturing plants in these countries via new plants and licensees.
