Auxiliary Engine Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Application (Commercial, Recreational, Others), By Fuel Type (Diesel, Gas, Others), and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI100641 | Status : Ongoing



Auxiliary engines convert thermal energy into a mechanical force that helps maintain synchronization of mechanical components of the main engine. These engines are commonly used to move a ship by consuming a low amount of fuel. The advanced features of auxiliary engines such as the electronic control system and common rail fuel system has resulted in increased demand for products in the maritime industry. Major applications served by auxiliary engines are marine gensets, emergency gensets and harbour gensets. The development of auxiliary engines depends on the usage of the ship and the total amount of power required for its movement.

Manufacturers throughout the globe are trying to adopt new methods to participate in the green shipping era. For instance, Yanmar Co. Ltd., a Japanese manufacturer of commercial auxiliary engine, has designed new types of injectors using eco-friendly technology, that consumes less fuel and generates comparatively more power. Adoption of LNG fuel over the conventional marine fuel is gradually becoming a trend by contributing to the eco-friendly technology that provides a potential market for auxiliary marine engines manufacturers, thus increasing the growth of auxiliary engine market. Eco-friendly technology has resulted in elimination of ballast system. However, the introduction of exhaust gas scrubber system, advanced rudder and propeller system, waste heat recovery system, improved pump and cooling water system, sandwich plate system is expected to result in the growth of auxiliary engines industry.

One of the major factor driving the market’s growth is the increase in commercial shipping. For instance, according to the United Nations Conference on trade and development (UNCTAD) global commercial shipping in 2017 increased by more than 3.9 % and 4 % in 2018. Similarly, according to the Indian Ministry of Shipping, approximately 95% of India’s trading (by volume) and 70%(by value) is done through maritime transport. The increase in the trade carried out through the marine transportation system, is expected to result in the growth of auxiliary engine market over the forecast period. Furthermore, the integration of smart controls and fuel-efficient system in the commercial ships is expected to increases the global trade market volume. However, the change in policies among various nation is expected to affect market growth. For instance, the withdrawal of United Kingdom from the BREXIT lead to the downsizing of the trading market through commercial shipping, thus impacting the demand of auxiliary engines.
