Electric Ships Market Segmentation Analysis

The electric ship market has been divided into commercial and defense segments based on ship type. Commercial ships, particularly commercial passenger ships, are adopting electric ship solutions at a faster rate than cargo ships because they are often inland vessels and cover shorter distances. Ferries for passengers are the category with the fastest growth.

During the projected period, the hybrid electric segment is anticipated to dominate the market. Due to the challenges presented by a shorter range and smaller battery capacity, hybrid electric propulsion is advancing more than other types of propulsion. Hybrid propulsion helps vehicles go farther and carry larger loads in addition to enabling reduced emissions.

The electric ship market has been divided into four categories based on tonnage: 500 DWT, 500–5000 DWT, 5001–15000 DWT, and >15000 DWT. For wheeled freight, small container vessels, roll-on, and roll-off vessels are included in the 500-5,000 DWT category. One of the most often utilized forms of transportation and one of the most polluting boats is container ships. To lessen marine pollution, they were the first to have a fully electric setup.

The electric ship market has been divided into two segments based on end use: newbuild & line-fit and retrofit. Currently, cruise ships and offshore vessels are the main users of the diesel-electric hybrid system employed by electric ships. Due to the rise in offshore exploration and the necessity for energy-efficient ships, there has been a yearly growth in the demand for electric ships. Norway is leading by example by making significant investments in ship electrification.

Hybrid ships will set new deployment records.

A greater focus is being placed on efficient and environmentally friendly ships, particularly hybrid electric ships, as a result of impending environmental restrictions and rising fuel prices. While a plug-in hybrid ship has a traditional engine and uses shore power to charge its batteries, a full-electric ship’s entire power source is its batteries. They are also recognized to provide solutions for modern ship propulsion systems that are power-dense, effective, and versatile.

Because hybridization with batteries may be utilized with diesel, LNG, and biofuels and does not require any charging infrastructure on land, it is seeing widespread deployment in offshore vessels, ferries, and tugs. The market will increase favorably as hybrid solutions become more popular in situations with significant variations in power output.

Thriving need or the production of power

There has been a growing emphasis on various strategies to minimize emissions as the marine sector gradually embraces decarbonization. The increasing demand for power generation systems has been sparked by escalating worries about the usage of fossil fuels and environmental contamination, particularly in marine boats. Concerns about the variations brought on by strong dynamic loads have increased significantly in ships. Shaft generators and other electrical solutions that are becoming more and more popular will be a key factor in the industry’s growth.

Presence in Europe is expanding

Europe is making quick progress in the development of electric shipping, notably light and short-range ferries, thanks to factors including topography and an abundance of hydroelectric supplies. The emphasis on electrifying coastal vessels is expanding as a result of the dramatically rising CO2 emissions and other pollutants from container ships, freighters, tankers, and cruise liners, particularly in Norway. Another factor having an impact on the market expansion is the growing number of commercial ships in the area that are powered by batteries and motor technology.

Furthermore, as ferries and inland vessels dock regularly, providing the opportunity to exchange container batteries or quickly recharge them, the value of electric driving systems has greatly improved. To maintain competitiveness, several electric ship businesses have been aggressively applying various marketing methods, which has further increased market saturation. For instance, ABB stated in July 2021 that it intended to power the first entirely electric tugboat in the United States to provide optimum efficiency and zero-emission operations.
