Growing Marine Trade to Stimulate the Demand for Marine Engine Solutions

The marine engines market accounted for a market value of US$ 11.70 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.09% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. Shifts in global demographics and population growth rates, coupled with long-term economic growth in developing markets, are expected to spur the maritime sector in the following years. Growing middle-class populations in emerging economies of Asia Pacific, Africa, and Latin America are further expected to drive the demand for imports of commodities and finished goods. For instance, economic growth in India reached 7.9% in 2018, up from 7.3% in 2014. Consumer spending in India accounts for over 60% of the economy and is the key driver of economic growth.

Rising consumer spending capacity in developing markets drives the long-term growth of container ships. With a significant surge in marine trade, the global maritime sector is seeking an increasing number of vessels. Promising growth in marine vessel production is subsequently expected to drive the surge in the marine engines market across the forecast period.

Similarly, the increasing availability of shipping data and advances in big data analytics are providing greater visibility into market and pricing trends. For instance, a constellation of satellites that keeps track of ships provides deeper insights compared to traditional tracking systems. The adoption of data-driven analytics improves decision-making to opt for suitable routes, taking into account fuel consumption, weather conditions, and piracy risk. With growing technological advances, marine traffic is expected to grow at a rapid pace. Consistently rising marine traffic is further expected to drive the demand for marine engines across the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Commercial Vessels Segment to Witness Significant Adoption for Marine Engines Across the Forecast Period

The marine engines market was led by commercial vessels in 2018, chiefly due to increasing global marine trade that has stimulated the demand for commercial vessels, subsequently driving the marine engines market for the commercial vessel segment. The prospects for seaborne trade are positive. Marine trade volume increased by 4% in 2018 compared to trade volume in 2017. Contingent to steady favorable trends in the global economy, marine trade is expected to surge at a promising rate. With a growing count of commercial marine vessels, demand for marine engines is expected to grow at a significant rate across the forecast period.

Large Production Capacity of Marine Engines to Ensure Dominating Position in the Asia Pacific Market

Presently, Asia Pacific is the front-runner in the overall marine engine market. As well as the region's expected to grow at a higher rate compared to its counterparts. China played a key role in 2018 as the emerging maritime superpower in shipping. The market here witnessed the highest growth in commercial vessel ownership, rivaling the rest of the world combined.

It is also projected that China will become the global hub for the maritime market, leading in seaborne trade and shipbuilding and having vertically interrelated ownership. Similarly, India is expected to become a giant driver of global trade at a similar pace to China. Bourgeoning countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea, among others, are expected to determine the shipbuilding market across the forecast period. The effect is that the region is expected to grow at a higher CAGR compared to other markets.
