Battery Pack for Marine Hybrid & Full Electric Propulsion Market: Overview

  • In the marine industry, batteries are used for various purposes such as starting, storage of power, providing backup power to safety equipment, and in propulsion systems. With the growing number of environmental regulations regarding NOx, SOx, and CO2 emissions, shipping companies are shifting toward battery-operated propulsion systems.
  • Rising demand for marine transportation is driving the demand for more reliable and efficient power backup batteries for safe and trouble-free operations
  • Rise in water sports activities and marine tourism is likely to drive the global battery pack for marine hybrid & full electric propulsion market in the near future

Stringent Government Regulations to Reduce Emissions to Drive Battery Pack for Marine Hybrid & Full Electric Propulsion Market

  • Ships run on bunker fuel, which is the most pollution-causing fuel. Furthermore, greenhouse gases is becoming a major concern across the globe. Every year, air pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and particulate matter, are released in large amounts.
  • In order to reduce pollution, governments of countries across the world are implementing rules and regulations. For instance:
    • In 2017, the U.S. Government and the Government of Canada have passed bills to formulate the fuel-sulfur limits and NOx emissions in emission control areas in North America. These areas includes coastal waters of up to 200 nautical miles from coasts of Alaska and Hawaii, the U.S. and Canada.
    • The vessels entering these areas must meet the requirement that fuel-sulfur concentrations should not exceed 0.10 weight%. Engines above 130 kW installed on vessels built since 2000 must be certified to meet appropriate emission standards corresponding to the building date of vessels. As of January 1, 2016, engines installed on new and modified vessels were subject to the Annex VI Tier III NOx standards.
  • Hybrid and full electric vessels can play a major role in reducing pollution, as these vessels run on batteries. Thus, stringent government regulations to reduce emissions are expected to drive the global battery pack for marine hybrid & full electric propulsion market during the forecast period.

High Initial Investments and Inadequate Infrastructure for Charging to Hamper Global Market

  • The initial cost required to install a battery setup and additional machinery required for a propulsion system is high.
