Electric Boat Market Trends




  • The increasing use of recreational boating in the tourism sector is expected to drive market growth.




The surge in demand for recreational boating in the tourism sector is one of the main drivers for the growth of the Electric Ship market. Recreational boating offers a high level of customization & personalization, as tourists can choose the type of boat, duration, and activities, tailoring the experience to their preferences and making it more memorable. Boat-sharing platforms, organized tours and rental services make it easier for individuals to experience boating without owning a boat. This convenience has opened recreational boating to many tourists who may have yet to consider it. The tourism industry progressively embraces sustainability and eco-friendly practices to meet the growing demand for environmentally responsible travel experiences. Marine Electric Vehicle align with these sustainability goals by offering a clean & quiet boating experience without contributing to air or water pollution. As a result, tourism operators are adopting Marine Electric Vehicle to provide tourists with eco-friendly recreational boating experiences. Marine Electric Vehicle operate quietly, thus reducing noise pollution and providing tourists with a unique & enhanced experience. The absence of engine vibrations & fumes provides a more serene & enjoyable ride, mainly in sensitive marine environments, encouraging repeat tourist visits and positive word-of-mouth. Several Marine Electric Vehicle are designed with low draft capabilities permitting them to steer shallow waters and access ecologically sensitive areas that may be off-limits to traditional motor-powered boats.


Electric Boat Market Platform Segment Insights:


Electric Boat Propulsion Type Insights


Based on propulsion type, the Electric Boat Market segmentation includes hybrid and pure electric. The hybrid will be the majority share in 2022, contributing around 57% to the market revenue. Hybrid boats use both traditional internal combustion engines and electric motors with batteries. This allows the boat to operate using either the internal combustion engine or the electric motor, providing flexibility and extending the range of the vessel. Hybrid boats offer improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, and enhanced performance compared to conventional boats powered solely by internal combustion engines. Thus, the growth of the hybrid Electric Ship market is attributed to rising awareness of environmental concerns coupled with the increasing tourism industry and stricter regulations regarding emissions.

Electric Boat Battery Type Insights


Based on the battery type, the Electric Boat Market segmentation is lithium-ion battery, lead-acid battery, and nickel-based battery. Lithium-ion batteries will dominate the market in 2022. Lithium-ion batteries are becoming popular in the Electric Ship market because they are lightweight, have a high energy density, and last longer than other battery types. They store energy efficiently and provide consistent power output, which allows Marine Electric Vehicle to travel longer distances and perform better. Lithium-ion batteries can also be recharged quickly, reducing downtime, and allowing for more frequent use of Marine Electric Vehicle. They are smaller and lighter than other batteries, making them ideal for portable electronic devices.


Electric Boat Carriage Type Insights


Based on carriage type, the Electric Boat Market segmentation includes passenger and cargo. The passenger held the majority share in 2022. Passenger Marine Electric Vehicle are designed to transport people for recreational, tourism, or commuting purposes. They are environmentally friendly and offer a comfortable and enjoyable experience for passengers. Passenger electric boats can be used for sightseeing tours, water taxis, ferry services, or private leisure activities. They are often found in lakes, rivers, coastal areas, and urban waterways. Electric propulsion systems' quiet and emission-free operation enhances the passenger experience and minimizes the impact on the surrounding environment.


Electric Boat Range Type Insights


Based on range type, the Electric Boat Market segmentation includes range, medium-range, and long-range. The medium-range owners held the majority share in 2022. Medium-range Marine Electric Vehicle are designed to travel moderate distances on a single charge. They are often used for tourism, exploring waterways, or commuting where longer periods of operation are needed. These boats have larger batteries and better energy management systems, allowing them to travel on larger bodies of water, rivers, or coastal areas.


Electric Boat Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The Europe Electric Ship market accounted for ~35% in 2022. It is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR growth during the study period. The Electric Ship market in Europe is growing because people are concerned about the environment and want sustainable transportation. Governments in Europe are supporting the development of Electric Ship by offering incentives, subsidies, and regulations. The European Union's Green Deal initiative promotes sustainable transportation, including Marine Electric Vehicle. France, the UK, and Germany are expected to dominate the electric boat market in Europe because they have long coastlines, inland waterways, and a strong boating culture. Companies like Beneteau Group, Duffy Electric Boat Company, and Torqeedo GmbH are investing in research and development to offer a wide range of Marine Electric Vehicle models with improved battery technology, a longer range, and enhanced performance.
