Marine engines are used to provide power to marine vehicles like ships, submarines and boats. These engines consist of different components including crankshaft, liner, pistons, bedplate and head. They are constructed with corrosion inhibiting materials and their seals & bearings are especially designed for sea operating environment. The emergence of new technologies in marine engine market has addressed the regulations pertaining emission of harmful gases. Properties like high performance, durability, fuel efficiency, low emissions, quiet operation and easy maintenance make marine engines ideal for marine applications.
Marine engine market develops in parallel with developments in boat & shipbuilding industry. The international seaborne trade, stringent regulations pertaining emissions of harmful gases, increased production of inland waterways vessels and introduction of new technologies are the major drivers of marine engine market. Due to quiet operation, smoothness, reliability and less pollution emission, four stroke engines are registering rapid growth in the market. Asia-Pacific region accounts for the largest production capacity of efficient inland waterways vessels due to factors like low labor & low production cost. Over production capacity in shipping industry, huge chores of investments required for R&D purposes, oil prices, low goods transportation rates and huge capital requirement for replacing existing vessels can restrain the growth of marine engine market. In addition, complying with government regulations with newly introduced technologies is a challenge for marine engine market.
