The global marine propulsion engine market size reached US$ 37.9 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 43.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4% during 2022-2028.
A marine propulsion engine burns fuel and enables ships to move across the water. It comprises a piston, valves, towers, casings, bearings, bedplates, crankcases, crankshafts, flywheels, generators, transformers, gearboxes, control panels, rotor blades, electrical controls, and cylinder blocks and liners. It has generators that supply electric power to motors and can operate on heavy fuel or diesel oil. Nowadays, it is widely utilized in modern merchant ships and offshore support vessels as prime movers across the globe.
The rising international trade on account of the increasing globalization and industrialization is escalating the demand for container ships to transport a variety of products, such as oil, natural gas, mineral ores and consumer products. This represents one of the major factors bolstering the global marine propulsion engine market growth. Moreover, the increasing focus on reducing fossil fuel consumption and improving energy efficiency is escalating the adoption of marine electric propulsion engines worldwide. Apart from this, the advent of nuclear propulsion and the growing preference for liquefied natural gas (LNG) are further contributing to the market growth. Besides this, advancements in technology and the rising environmental awareness are resulting in the utilization of alternate fuels, such as bio-methane and algal oils, to run marine propulsion engines with minimal exhaust gas emissions. Moreover, the market players are focusing on enhancing the efficiency of marine propulsion engines to increase the cargo holding capacity of new-generation tankers, which is anticipated to fuel the market growth.
