Marine Scrubber Market Scenario


Marine Scrubber Market size is projected to reach USD 9.01 Billion by 2027 at 10.13% CAGR between 2020 and 2027.   


Marine scrubbers, also known as exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), are used to remove harmful components such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur oxide (SOx) from the exhaust gases generated as a result of combustion processes in marine engines to implement pollution control. These kinds of systems are deployed to treat exhaust from engines, auxiliary engines, and boilers to ensure that no damage is done to human life as well as the environment due to any toxic chemicals.


The major factors driving the growth of the global marine scrubber market is the rising demand for sustainable methods to control sulfur emissions from ships. Moreover, stringent regulations imposed by the government to address pollution arising due to emission will also boost the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been engaged in a strategy since 2018 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from ships. This strategy specifically focused on CO2 emissions reduction consistent with the Paris Agreement temperature goals. Similar standards and regulations will promote the global marine scrubber market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of revamping a scrubber can restrict the growth of the global marine scrubber market.


Many major players such as CR Ocean Engineering (US), DuPont (US), Yara International ASA (Norway), Fuji Electric Co., Ltd (Japan), and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd (Japan) are actively focusing on signing contracts and agreements with various marine companies. For instance, in February 2019, CR Ocean Engineering entered into a contract with a US-based shipping company to retrofit marine scrubbers in 35 vessels. This contract has helped the company to strengthen its footprint in the North American market and also has helped the company to adhere to the sulfur equivalency requirement in European and North America Emission Control Areas (ECAs). Such developments in the market are expected to drive the growth of the global marine scrubber market during the forecast period.    


The global marine scrubber market has been segmented based on technology, fuel, and application. Based on technology, the global market is divided into wet technology and dry technology. The dry technology segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market and grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period owing to its various advantages, including a reduction in NOx emissions substantially and no production of liquid effluent. All these factors would result in a higher share of the dry technology segment.


Global Marine Scrubber Market is expected to register XX% CAGR during the forecast period.
