Drivers & Restraints-

Development of Hybrid Automotive Technology to Add Impetus


The imposition of stringent regulations on sea emissions is a major factor boosting the global marine hybrid propulsion market growth. This, coupled with the rising switch towards environment-friendly hybrid variety from fuel-based conventional propulsion will also add impetus to the market in the forecast period. Additionally, the rising operational performance of naval vessels will also boost the market for marine hybrid propulsion. Furthermore, nowadays, battery-powered storage systems are used as backup units for propulsion system that will help imitate the external load of the engines used in ships and vessels, thereby reducing the consumption of fuel. This will further add impetus to the market for marine hybrid propulsion in the coming years.


On the contrary, factors such as the high cost of installation and maintenance may pose a major challenge to the market in the coming years. Additionally, the current COVID-19 pandemic has propelled all businesses on waterbodies to a temporary halt, therefore having a major impact on economy. This, coupled with the increasing adoption rate of propulsion systems running on diesel may hamper the market growth in the long run owing to the high price of diesel. Nevertheless, the increasing procurement of offshore vessel support from companies dealing with shipbuilding and increasing expenditure on small cargo ships are likely to help create new growth opportunities to the market for marine hybrid propulsion in the coming years.



Diesel-electric Segment Earned Dominance Owing to Fuel-efficient Technology


On the basis of segmentation by type, the diesel-electric segment earned the highest marine hybrid propulsion market share in 2019. This is accountable to the fact that diesel-electric propulsion is efficient in technology and is highly adopted in naval vessels. However, the gas-electric propulsion segment is likely to emerge as the dominant segment in the coming years on account of its growing use in anchor handling supply vessels.
