Drivers & Restraints:

Rapidly Flourishing Global Trade to Drive the Market

Rapidly increasing international trade and the resultant global supply chain are projected to drive the global marine engine market growth. For instance, as per the report published by the International Monetary Fund, the overall growth of the world trade has been an average of 6% over the past 20 years. The growth at this rate is twice as fast as the world output over these years. In addition, technological advancements in marine engines are estimated to enhance growth. However, the lack of fuel options due to strict regulations regarding emissions from several countries is anticipated to limit the demand.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis:

Global Shutdown amid COVID-19 to Disrupt Global Supply Chain

The global merchandise trade relies heavily on the maritime transport sector as it handles over 80% of the former. Therefore, shutdown of the shipment industry amid the COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to cause huge disruption in the global supply chain. Businesses across the world are paralyzed as most of the businesses have shipment as their primary component of operations. We are offering precise market reports based on our expertise and experience in the field of market research, which will help you get rid of the current challenges.

Oxidation & Thermal Stability Characteristics to Augment the Demand for Marine Diesel Oil

Based on fuel, the marine diesel oil segment dominated the global marine engine market with 25.5% share in 2019. The oxidation & thermal stability characteristics and reduced costs are the key factors driving the segment growth. Based on ship type, the gas carriers segment is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is due to its ability to use natural gas as fuel and emit minimum sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides.

Regional Insights:

Presence of Major Manufacturers in the Region to Aid Asia Pacific to Dominate

Asia Pacific is set to lead the global market with a share of USD 5.35 billion in 2019. Leading countries including China and India being the largest manufacturers in the world is a major factor driving the growth of marine engines in the region. For instance, in 2019, nearly 41% of the total goods exported were manufactured in the region. On the other hand, the total value of goods imported reached 62%.

The market in Europe is anticipated to exhibit significant growth in the forecast timeframe. Robust infrastructure for shipping gives a competitive advantage to the region. For instance, the contribution of the EU shipping industry to the European Union’s annual GDP is a total of €147 billion.
