Marine Hybrid Propulsion Market to hit US$ 7.5 Bn by 2027

Description of Global Marine Hybrid Propulsion Market

  • Marine hybrid propulsion systems are gradually emerging as one of the most preferred clean propulsion systems globally and are being used in several vessel categories. One of the major advantages of using hybrid propulsion systems is their clean and efficient mechanism, which significantly lowers emissions as compared to conventional propulsion systems. Features such as silent maneuvering, emission-free operations, and lower degrees of fuel consumption have prompted vessel and towage operators to invest in this technology.
  • Development of the technology originating from the hybrid automotive industry has assisted technology developers in designing efficient and economical marine hybrid propulsion systems. Marine hybrid propulsion systems are designed to use two independent drive systems for propulsion: a diesel engine and an electric motor, where electric power is generally stored in batteries or a super capacitor. The system utilizes the unused capacity of the main diesel engine to generate electricity and store it in batteries for later use.

Shift from Conventional to Hybrid Propulsion Units to Drive Global Marine Hybrid Propulsion Market

  • The switch from fuel-based conventional propulsion to the environment-friendly hybrid variety is increasing owing to the latter’s efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Multiple ship operators are utilizing renewable energy including solar energy as a storage option in hybrid propulsion systems. In marine hybrid propulsion systems, stored solar energy is used during peak hours or at night, eliminating the round-the-clock need for conventional marine fuel
  • Coupled with Stringent regulations related to minimization of harmful carbon emissions have propelled the demand for hybrid propulsion systems. The growing seaborne trade has resulted in the spillage of marine fuel into the marine ecosystem. Thus, governments of several countries are funding and supporting development and adoption of marine hybrid propulsion systems.

Volatility in crude oil prices to Hamper Global Marine Hybrid Propulsion Market

  • Marine hybrid systems utilize diesel, a byproduct of crude oil, for propulsion. Volatility in crude oil prices has resulted in a switch from diesel to LNG. The relatively low price of natural gas and LNG compared to diesel in North America and Europe has attracted investments in LNG bunkering infrastructure in these regions.

Europe and North America Highly Lucrative Region Global Marine Hybrid Propulsion Market

  • Currently, ferries have been recognized as the major ends-user in terms of installation of marine hybrid propulsion systems. Ferry operators, especially in Europe, are anticipated to invest substantial amounts for the installation of hybrid propulsion systems in their respective vessels.
  • The European Union has also supported upgrade of ferries as all vessels traversing through or operating in European waters have to reduce sulfur emissions from 2015. Defense vessels are anticipated to be one of the most prominent end-user segment in terms of future hybrid propulsion installations.
  • Several defense organizations in Europe and North America have started installing hybrid propulsion systems in the respective vessels operated by them. The typical operating profile for naval destroyers and military vessels includes a significant amount of time voyaging at low speed. In such operating modes, electrical propulsion motors can be used to meet the vessel’s power requirement which significantly reduces emissions and saves fuel.
