Market Overview

There are several attributes that make marine hybrid propulsion systems the preferred choice in the marine transportation industry today. As more and more vessel owners and operators adopt cleaner, more efficiency hybrid propulsion systems, it is expected that the marine hybrid propulsion systems market will register a CAGR of 8.02% between 2014 and 2022. By switching over to hybrid propulsion systems, vessel owners can insulate their operations against fluctuating fuel prices and the environmental regulations that are increasingly turning the heat on conventional fuel sources.

While these factors will prove to be the greatest growth stimulators for the global market for marine hybrid propulsion system, there are also a few restraints that players will have to grapple with. For instance, some vessel owners show a preference for the use of clean fuel in conventional propulsion systems rather than refitting the entire propulsion system. Nevertheless, the expansion of sea routes deemed as emission control areas (ECAs) will bring several opportunities for the growth and expansion of the marine hybrid propulsion market.

Europe currently represents the largest market for marine hybrid propulsion systems. Asia Pacific, however, lags behind both Europe and the North America region in the global market for marine hybrid propulsion systems. Ferry operators in inland and offshore marine routes exhibit the highest demand for marine hybrid propulsion systems. But the adoption of marine hybrid propulsion systems is also increasingly seen in offshore support vessels and tugboats as they strive to achieve operational efficiency. The other types of marine vessels where hybrid propulsion systems are being adopted are small tourist boats and luxury yachts.
