Electric Ship Market Size

The global electric ship market is projected to grow from USD 5.1 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 10.5 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2021 to 2026.

As per the U.N. International Trade and Development (UNCTAD), around 80% of the volume of international trade in goods is carried by sea, and the percentage is even higher for most developing countries. As per this research, one large ship releases the same amount of pollutants like 70,000 automobiles release CO2, 2 million cars' release nitrogen oxide, and 2.5 million cars' release fine dust and hazardous particles. Shipping is responsible for 18 to 30% of total oxides of nitrogen emission to the atmosphere. As a result, ships are the most substantial sources of pollution at shipping ports.

The majority of container and cruise ships, as well as oil tankers and cargo ships, run on heavyweight diesel fuel. They also require a lot of resources: Annually, the 90,000 ships in the globe, consume 370 million gallons of gasoline and emit million metric tonnes of sulfur oxide. Hence, alternative energy sources, like liquefied natural gas (LNG), hydrogen, or electric energy, are more economical and greener. One of the benefits of battery operation is that energy is substantially more affordable than oil and, in particular, maritime diesel.

The need for an electric-powered maritime ship has grown in response to the growing need to reduce greenhouse emissions and reduce fuel wastage. Additionally, the market's growth is being aided by shipwrights’ heightened awareness of reducing noise pollution caused by marine vehicles propulsion technology. Furthermore, the growing interest among electric vehicle (EV) producers to access the burgeoning market by enhancing electric ship manufacturing is boosting the market’s growth during the forecast period.

The International Maritime Organization's regulation on decreasing sulfur dioxide emissions, as well as the widespread deployment of fully electric cargo vehicles, are driving the market forward. Electric ships are an ecologically sustainable alternative to the conventional furl deployed in urban shipping and massive cargo ships. In comparison to heavy crude, they are better and more efficient, and electrical charging is far less expensive. Over the forecast period, these factors are projected to drive the adoption of hybrid and all-electric ships.

Due to the global shutdown of production facilities and protectionist measures implemented as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, the expansion of the electric boat and ship business has been impeded. Nonetheless, with governmental regulatory changes to improve economic circumstances, the market is expected to recover over the forecast period. Short-range anxiety and increased buying costs, on the other hand, will function as market restrictions.

global electric ship market

Electric Ship Market: By Type

Based on type, the market is segmented into fully electric, and hybrid. The hybrid segment is estimated to have the largest share in the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of supplemental propulsion technology and rising adoption of hybrid electric ships across the globe. Moreover, shipping companies and transport and logistics organizations all over the world favour hybrid electric ships as they use less gasoline and have lower production and maintenance costs.

Electric Ship Market: By System

Based on the system, the market is segmented into energy storage systems, power generation, power conversion, and power distribution systems. The market for the energy storage system is predicted to have the largest share in the market during the forecast period. The energy storage system offer power backup during outages and moderate the distribution of fluctuating or inconsistent resources like wind and solar by storing additional energy when the wind blows and the sun shines and transferring it when the reverse occurs.

Electric Ship Market: By Ship Type

Based on ship type, the market is segmented into commercial, and defense. Commercial electric ships accounted for the largest market share during the forecast period. This is mainly due to rising competitive pressure among shipping companies and the rising product launch strategies in the market for this segment. Furthermore, an increase in logistics services is contributing to the market's growth.

Electric Ship Market: By Operation

Based on operation, the market is segmented into manned, remotely operated, and autonomous. The growth of the manned segment can be attributed to having the largest share in the market during the forecast period as they help in reduce human inaccuracy, lower crewing costs, improve life safety, and allow for even more economical use of capacity in vehicles design and fuel efficiency. During the forecast period, speedier operations with lower operational expenses are expected to take the market forward.

Electric Ship Market: By Power Output

Based on the power output, the market is segmented into <75 kW, 75 - 745 kW, owing to the growing awareness of environmental conservation, which has resulted in the development of propulsion systems that create little emissions, has given the medium-sized marine vehicles a new lease on life, supporting the growth of the 75-745 KW power output category.

asia pacific electric ship market

Electric Ship Market: By Region

As per the geographical analysis, the market can be classified into North America (the US, Canada, and Mexico), Asia Pacific (India, China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Rest of Asia Pacific), Europe (Germany, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain, Netherlands, and Rest of Europe), Middle East & Africa and Central South & America.

The North American region is expected to hold the lion’s share of the market. This is mainly because of rising social concern about climate change, as well as governments’ efforts to promote electrically driven types of transportation. Additionally, the increasing popularity of electric leisure and recreational ships in the region's tourism industry, underwater adventures, and fishing are some other drivers expected to fuel regional market expansion. The COVID-19 epidemic, which has lately spread across Europe, particularly in Italy, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Germany, is projected to have a detrimental impact on regional market growth.

During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow rapidly. Increased production rates are expected to help the region grow fastest.
