The global marine hybrid propulsion market size was USD 3.93 billion in 2021. The market is expected to grow from USD 4.60 billion in 2022 to USD 9.99 billion by 2029 at a CAGR of 11.71% in the 2022-2029 period. This information is provided by Fortune Business Insights™, in its report titled, “Marine Hybrid Propulsion Market, 2022-2029.”

COVID-19 Impact

Shipping Industry Experienced Unparalleled Hurdles during COVID-19 Pandemic

The speedy spread of coronavirus had a prime sway on the global marine industry. Western nations have been imposing country-wide lockdowns since February 2020. China possessed a major role in the global maritime trade market as the globe’s biggest exporter. China exports produced transitional goods to the U.S. and the European Union per annum. The maritime export industry of China needs an on-site attendance of skilled workers, but owing to the lockdown norms inflicted by government authorities, it is not able to assemble the distantly operated work system.

Driving Factors

Growing Demand for Electric Propulsion Technology from Shipbuilding Industry to Drive Growth

Marine hybrid propulsions are basically utilized in merchant ships, recreational boats, and naval ships. The electric propulsion system utilizes diesel generators and gas turbines. Diesel generators primarily produce three-phase electricity. It offers electric power motors to rotate propellers. The electric propulsion technology aids to decline the undesirable noise created by marine engines and eradicates the requirement for gearboxes and clutches. This is expected to bolster the marine hybrid propulsion market growth.

Regional Insights

Europe to Dominate Backed by Increasing Marine Trade Activities

Europe held the largest marine hybrid propulsion market share and was valued at USD 1.11 billion in 2020. The augmented quantity of ships owing to the surging international seaborne trade resulted in growing demand for propulsion systems and propellers throughout Europe.

Asia Pacific is predicted to display the highest growth during the forecast period.
