Diesel-Electric Parallel Hybrid Propulsion Demand to Grow Substantially in the Forecast Period

Diesel-Electric Parallel Hybrid Propulsion dominated the global online market as they are gaining prominence due to their flexibility and efficiency. These systems use a combination of internal combustion engines and electric motors, allowing vessels to operate on electric power at lower speeds and switch to diesel power for higher speeds. This setup offers fuel efficiency and emissions reduction, which aligns well with tightening environmental regulations.

Browse summary of the report and Complete Table of Contents (ToC):

Ferries and Short-Sea Shipping are the Leading Application Segment

In terms of application, Ferries and Short-Sea shipping are the leading segment as these vessels often operate on fixed routes and have frequent stops, making them well-suited for hybrid systems that can take advantage of electric power during low-speed maneuvering and harbor operations. Hybrid systems offer benefits such as reduced emissions, improved fuel efficiency, and quieter operation, which align with the environmental and operational requirements of ferry services.

Europe is the leading Market Due to the Technological Advancements

Region-wise, Europe is one of the largest growing markets with a huge emphasis on green and sustainable technologies in the maritime industry. The European Union’s stringent emissions regulations, such as the IMO’s sulfur cap and the European Green Deal, were pushing shipowners and operators to explore cleaner propulsion options. Many European countries had established supportive policies, incentives, and funding for the development and adoption of hybrid and alternative propulsion systems. As a result, Europe was expected to remain a significant market for marine hybrid propulsion systems.
