Marine Scrubber Market Overview


In order to reduce air pollution, dangerous pollutants from marine engine exhaust gases, such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, are removed using a marine scrubber. To remove contaminants from exhaust fumes, marine scrubbers spray seawater or freshwater over the gases. Scrubbing is the name of this procedure. Scrubbing can be carried out using a variety of technologies, including wet, dry, and hybrid scrubbing.

Marine Scrubber Market COVID 19 Analysis

Economically and sociologically, the coronavirus (Covid-19), which has afflicted the entire world, has been a major burden for many nations. While many workplaces were forced to halt working throughout this phase because of COVID-19, several industries kept working. The usage of the maritime route increased as a result of the closing of land borders and airlines. As a result, the maritime industry has become the most significant transportation sector.

Additionally, because it is safer than transportation by land or air in international trade, the marine sector has emerged as the most favored sector in the Covid-19 process. This circumstance once again demonstrated the positive impact the marine industry has on people.

Marine Scrubber Market:

Due to the rigorous measures many nations have implemented to safeguard public health, industrial productivity, and energy consumption have plummeted by as much as 30% in recent weeks. About 80% of world trade is carried by marine transport, so it was necessary to pay attention to maritime transport in order to maintain international trade. This meant that the marine scrubber market will grow globally at a gradual but constant pace.

Market Drivers:

Numerous steps have been attempted to address air pollution, which has been a serious problem for decades. Wet technology in marine scrubbers is among the most efficient ways to lower air pollution. Devices called wet scrubbers are used to clean exhaust gas emissions of contaminants. Due to the increased need for clean air, strict environmental restrictions, and the desire to eliminate hazardous emissions, the market for wet technology has been increasing significantly on a global scale.

Wet technology marine scrubbers have a sizable demand in the marine industry. Strict guidelines for reducing sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions from ships have been established by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). The rule states that in order to limit their SOx emissions, ships must either use fuel with a sulfur content of no more than 0.5% or install scrubbers.

In order to comply with the rules and lessen their environmental impact, cruise ships are also using wet technology. The high levels of SOx, particulate matter, and other pollutants that cruise ships emit are frequently criticized. Due to this, a lot of cruise lines are making investments in scrubber technology to lower emissions and enhance environmental performance. Sales of wet technology marine scrubbers are anticipated to rise as a result of this demand.

The primary drivers for the marine scrubber industry include the implementation of the 2020 sulfur rule, air pollution prevention regulations and legislation enforced by governments to preserve the environment, growth in international maritime freight transit, and a rise in demand for cargo transportation via ships.

Market Restraints: 

The market’s expansion is constrained by factors like stringent regulatory guidelines for the disposal of contaminated effluents from scrubber systems and expensive installation and maintenance costs for marine scrubbers. However, as ship owners race against time to comply with laws and regulations, the growth of e-commerce and online trade as well as the rising demand for retrofit applications are anticipated to present attractive prospects for market leaders in marine scrubbers.

Marine Scrubber Market Segmentation

By Technology 

Wet scrubber systems—closed-loop, open-loop, hybrid, and others—as well as dry scrubber systems, are included in the market segmentation for marine scrubbers based on type. Given that they are the most prevalent and widely regarded as the most effective, wet scrubber systems held the biggest market share. 

By Fuel

MGO, MDO, and hybrid are among the fuel types used in the marine scrubber market segmentation. The marine scrubber market was dominated by the MDO sub-segment in 2022. Different distillates are used to make marine fuels, which are also sometimes referred to as marine gasoil or marine diesel oil (MDO). 

By Application

Commercial applications for marine scrubbers include “container vessels, tankers, bulk carriers, RO-RO,” offshore applications include “AHTS, PSV, FSV, MPSV,” and military applications include “cruise ships, ferries, yachts.”  The commercial sub-segment will hold a sizable portion of the market in 2022.
