Marine growth protection systems (MGPS) are also termed as impressed current anti fouling (ICAF) systems. Marine fouling in sea water cooling systems is a major threat to the performance of ships and other installations.

The MGPS systems uses specially alloyed anodes (copper based/aluminum based) that are connected to a small digital rectifier. These are mounted in the sea-chests or strainers and wired to a control panel. The system provides protection against most types of hard and soft marine growth. Major maintenance/replacement activity is of the anodes as it is required periodically. Aluminum and ferrous alloyed rods (anodes) are used to mitigate corrosion. Aluminum anodes are used in combination with copper alloyed anodes to prevent corrosion throughout the ferrous pipe network. The ferrous alloyed anodes are used in combination with copper alloyed anodes to prevent corrosion in the Cu/Ni pipe network.

Based on the structure where MGPS systems are applied/installed, they are functional on both mobile and fixed bases. MGPS in some cases are installed when the ships are dry docked. Anodes which are based on copper alloy are used to prevent marine fouling in pipe strainers, heat exchangers, pumps, and box-coolers amongst others. Since marine growth causes blockages, it also accelerates the internal rate of corrosion. The MGPS systems are designed to remove minute fouling at 2 ppb (parts per billion).

Based on technology, the MGPS market is segmented into anodic copper dosing, sodium hypochlorite dozing, fresh water flushing, Cu/Ni piping’s and others. The most commonly employed MGPS systems for ship’s internal water systems are anodic copper dosing (sacrificial) and chlorine based systems sodium hypochlorite and Cu/Ni piping’s). Fresh water flushing is another system which involves pressurized fresh water jets being applied internally to remove the excess clogging growth. Fresh water flushes are limited to be used in fire water pumps. Usage of fresh water flush is avoided in intrinsic marine machinery since water as a whole contributes in acceleration of corrosion.

The Cu/Ni pipe network has inherent antifouling property which can control bio-fouling in the sea water systems. The others segment includes osmotic shock, activated titanium metal anodes, platinized niobium, etc. Based on the geography, MGPS is expected to witness highest growth rate in Asia Pacific (APAC) due to the fact that the marine fleet is highest in the region. After APAC, Europe has the second highest number of marine fleet in the world and hence the growth rate is expected to be second highest. Based on region, the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness highest growth rate which will be closely followed by Europe.

Based on application, the MGPS market is segmented into marine, offshore oil & gas, offshore wind farms and marine civil industries. The marine segment includes ships/vessels/barges, flood gates, dry-docks and other offshore surfaces. The marine segment is expected to witness highest growth rate since MGPS is most commonly employed on vessel fleets throughout the world. Offshore oil and gas segment will follow the growth rate after marine segment.

Based on application, the Global Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) Market is categorized into following segments:

  • Marine
  • Offshore Oil & Gas
  • Offshore Wind Farms
  • Marine Civil Industries

Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) Market

The marine segment includes all kinds of marine vessels/ships/barges, flood gates, dry docking of ships, and other under water surfaces. Since vessels are the largest users of marine growth prevention/protection systems, marine segment had largest share of the market in 2016 and is also expected to have the largest share during the forecast period (2017-2025). The offshore oil and gas segment involves offshore platforms, jackets, pipelines, risers, SSIV’s, mud mats, chutes, rubber fenders, piles, walkways & pontoons and grout bags amongst others. Marine civil industries includes mining activities, anti-vibration systems, concreting and steel fixing amongst others.

The marine segment is expected to be the market leader for MGPS during the forecast period. Some of the major reasons is that the number of marine fleet, which runs into thousands, travel globally for various services such as trade, offshore oil & gas and offshore wind power activities amongst others. Thus the marine segment is expected to be the largest market for MGPS, globally.

Based on equipment’s, the global Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) Market is categorized into following segments:

  • Anodic Copper Dosing
  • Sodium Hypochlorite Dosing
  • Cu/Ni Piping’s
  • Fresh Water Flushing
  • Others (activated titanium metal anodes, platinized niobium, etc.)

Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) Market

Overall, globally, anodic copper dosing is expected to lead the MGPS market which will be closely followed by sodium hypochlorite dosing. Copper (Cu) is an important trace element for marine organisms and it is the prime element used in anodic dosing. It is found naturally in aquatic environment, in very low concentrations. If the concentration increases, it is considered as most toxic heavy metal to several marine invertebrae’s. Copper is a vital element that has a potential to decrease reproduction and growth rates of many aquatic species. Cu based paints prevents fouling on submerged aquatic structures. Dissolved copper in MGPS (anodic copper dosing) are commonly used to prevent accumulation of marine growth within seawater cooling systems of vessels.

Sodium hypochlorite is a proven effective antifouling agent, it has been used as disinfectant and antifoulant since a very long time. Sodium hypochlorite readily reacts with bromine and bromides present in sea water. They are effective biocidal for large number of bio-fouler. Since sodium hypochlorite is a hazardous liquid, they are stored in hypochlorite generators installed on-board vessels. MGPS dozed with hypochlorite has to maintain perfect concentration levels, because even slight increase in concentration increases the corrosion tendency of the pipes (internal).

Cu/Ni piping’s provide passive fouling control. Cu/Ni in pipes form cuprous oxide or nitrous oxide layers on the piping surface which acts as corrosion resistant. Cupro-nickel alloys are mostly in the ratio 90:10 or 70:30 depending on requirements in the marine environment.

Fresh water flushing treatment involves flooding the internal seawater systems with fresh water (non-saline). This helps in culling of several marine species due to hyposalinity. One of the major restraint in fresh water flushing is that in many cases there may be excessive consumption of fresh water if the system is made to run continuously. Fresh water supply is high cost involving, it may have pessimistic perception with certain communities/areas which are rainfall deficient and high restriction implementation.

Based on geographical distribution, the Global Marine Growth Removal (MGR) Market is segmented into following categories,

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • France
    • Germany
    • U.K.
    • Rest of Europe

Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) Market

Based on regional oil and gas outreach as of 2016, Asia Pacific is the largest region with shipping industry and offshore oil and gas assets and facilities and hence the region accounted for the largest share of MGPS services and is expected to dominate the market for MGPS for the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is followed by Europe and North American region in terms of market value share. Europe has well established biocide regulations where in the owners and operators of vessels must ensure that the MGPS systems comply with EU Biocides regulation standard (528/2012). Hence Europe is also a well-established MGPS market after Asia Pacific and North America.

The marine vessels and offshore oil and gas facilities are the major drivers of the marine growth protection systems (MGPS) market, globally. Since global trade activities is an ongoing process, vessels of all sizes move throughout the world and dock at various ports. The MGPS equipment’s are essential part of the shipping industry as it prevents from bio-fouling which is mainly occur due to marine plants and animals. Asia Pacific being the major trade route and has vast offshore oil and gas installations, this region is expected to be the largest producer and consumer MGPS equipment’s.
