Drivers and Restraints:

Increasing International Seaborne Trade Activities to Boost Azimuth Thrusters Market Growth

As per the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) maritime transport report 2021, the international maritime trade is predicted to rise by 4.3%. Moreover, Japan, China, and South Korea have arisen as the key nations in the shipbuilding industry. The propeller is an effective system of the marine vessels. Therefore, the rising demand for naval vessels and cargo ships for seaborne trades is fueling the market growth.

High maintenance cost related with substituting the conventional thrusters hinders the growth of the market. There is huge cost engaged in modernization and upgrading of progressive thrusters. Therefore, the requirement of promoted azimuth thrusters in naval vessels obstructs the market growth.
