Marine Hybrid Propulsion System Market Trends




  • Increased global trade is driving the market growth




The marine hybrid propulsion system market CAGR is expanding as a result of increased global trade. The majority of items that are traded globally are transported by ships and cargo vessels. Vessels with changing power requirements have better fuel efficiency thanks to hybrid propulsion. Global trade reached a record value of $28.5 trillion in 2021, according to UNCTAD's Global Trade Update. This represents an increase of roughly 25% over 2020 and around 13% over 2019. The rise in commodities prices, the easing of pandemic restrictions, and robust economic stimulus programmes were all factors in the 2021 increase in global commerce. Thus, the increase in global trade increases the fleet size and number of cargo ships, which in turn fuels the demand for marine hybrid propulsion system.


The maritime tourism sector has been growing over time as a result of rising disposable income and people's increasing tendency to spend money on maritime leisure activities. As a result, luxury yachts and passenger cruise ships are now utilised more regularly. Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), one of the major trade organisations for the cruise industry, asserted in its report that the cruise sector has been expanding consistently over time. The research also highlights cruises' substantial contribution to global tourism, which saw a 7% increase in passenger numbers. This might help the market expand in the future.


The introduction of integrated propulsion systems has become a major development in the marine hybrid propulsion system market. The main participants in the marine hybrid propulsion system market are concentrating on the introduction of innovative hybrid propulsion systems to enhance performance, environmental friendliness, and propulsion system diversity. For instance, Havyard, a Norwegian shipbuilding company declared in November 2020 that its new hydrogen propulsion system for large ocean-going ships should be finished the following year as a potential alternative fuel to help minimize its carbon impact. With integrated LH2 tanks and fuel cells, it has created a ship's propulsion system. Thus, driving the marine hybrid propulsion system market revenue.


Marine Hybrid Propulsion System Market Segment Insights:


Marine Hybrid Propulsion System Application Insights
