Marine Propeller Market Statistics 2021–2030:

The global marine propeller market was valued $5,076.0 million in 2020 and is projected to reach $8,524.3 million in 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.5%.

Marine propeller is a rotating fan like structure, which comprises radiating blades and propeller shaft. It is utilized to propel a ship with aid of power generated by main engine of ship. The propeller produces thrust, which is transferred through transmission system of ships, resulting in movement of the ship. Marine propellers are manufactured using corrosion-resistant materials such as aluminium and stainless steel, which possess the ability to operate efficiently in seawater. A marine propeller can be 2-bladed, 3-bladed, 4-bladed, or 5-bladed, based on speed of the ship.

Greater Demand For Sea-based Logistics & Trade

Sea-based logistics & trade is a convenient way of transporting goods from one nation to another, owing to its cost efficiency. Sea-based logistics costs less in comparison with air logistics. Moreover, post COVID-19 pandemic, rise in demand for sea-based logistics and trade has been observed, owing to rise in consumer demand for e-commerce products.  Another factor that is contributing toward greater demand for sea-based logistics & trade is that several e-commerce companies have been rushing to stock up after a year of pandemic related supply chain disruptions.  

Growth In Demand For Maritime Travel & Tourism Activities

Maritime tourism is very popular across the globe. Several governments have taken initiatives in their region to promote maritime travel & tourism activities. For instance, in 2021, the government of India planned to develop 78 maritime tourism landmarks across India to enhance development of existing lighthouses and its surrounding areas into unique maritime tourism landmarks. Moreover, ships are also utilized in maritime tourism for sightseeing purposes & visiting new places, which is expected to create demand for new ships with improved propellers. This, in turn, is anticipated to contribute toward growth of the marine propeller market.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis 

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in supply-chain disruptions and reduced economic activities resulting in reduced orders for new ships. Low number of orders for new ships result in reduced demand for propellers during the pandemic. Reduced trade activities and ship production during the pandemic also hampered the market growth.

In addition, introduction of new environmental regulations forced ship owners to pay more for cleaner fuel, integrate pollution-reducing scrubbers, or order newer vessels. Higher fuel prices and poor market conditions during the pandemic resulted in scrapping of older ships by ship owners to avoid losses.

Aftermarket is projected as the most lucrative segment

GHowever, in 2021, the industry experienced surge in orders for new shipbuilding across the globe. This is attributed to tremendous increase in demand for manufactured consumer goods during the pandemic with e-commerce giants such as Walmart, Alibaba, and Amazon and restocking their inventory after facing supply chain disruptions during the peak of the pandemic. Greater demand for larger cargo space and faster cross-border shipment of goods and surge in sea freight shipping rates, owing to unavailability of containers and port congestion in Asia, North America, and Europe resulted in greater demand for shipbuilding.

Moreover, majority of orders for new shipbuilding are received by shipyards in China, Japan, and South Korea. This increase in new shipbuilding & repair activities is expected to create demand for several equipment utilized in shipbuilding such as propellers and shafts, which, is expected to contribute toward growth of the marine propeller market.

Analyst Review

There has been increasing focus on adoption of electric propulsion technology in ships. This is attributed to the reason that several countries are aiming to reduce carbon footprint of their shipping fleets. Ship manufactures are adopting new technologies and alternatives to address environmental concerns. For instance, liquefied natural gas as an alternative to diesel engines is expected to aid in reduction of CO2 emissions by up to 25% in comparison to diesel engines.

Increase in demand for marine propellers from emerging economies such as Asia-Pacific, coupled with high shipbuilding & seaborne trade activities in this region, and growth in maritime tourism activities is expected to supplement the market growth. Collaborations and acquisitions are expected to enable leading players to enhance their product portfolios and expand to different regions. Several developments have been carried out by key players operating in the marine propeller industry. In April 2021, Rolls-Royce entered in an agreement with Fincantieri Marinette Marine to design & manufacture up to 40 fixed pitch propellers for the U.S. Navy’s constellation class frigate. Moreover, in March 2020, Schottel won a contract to equip propulsion systems in the U.S. Navy Vessels. The vessels is expected to driven by Rudderpropellers type SRP 270 FP with a propeller diameter of 1.85 m and an input power of 970 kW.
