Key Market Drivers

Need for reduction in carbon emissions

The 75-150 kW segment is projected to dominate market share in the power segment during the forecast period

Based on power, the 75-150 kW segment is projected to dominate the market share during the forecast period. Medium-size passenger ferries are considered under ships with a power range of 75–150 kW. The need for a reduced or zero-emission transport system across countries is high. The electrification of the ferry for green transformation will also act as a major step towards reducing the emission made by the conventional propulsion engines of the maritime tourism industry.

The Energy Storage System segment projected to dominate Electric Ship market during the forecast period

Based on System, Energy Storage System is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Energy storage systems currently being used in several ship types such as ferries, yachts, cruise ships, container ships, and cargos ships consist of batteries, ultra-capacitors, flywheels, and fuel cells. Among batteries, lithium-ion is the most used in fully electric zero-emission ferries with short routes of 5 to 10 km. Hybrid energy storage systems can be implemented in high power/energy density applications, which are mostly used in either retrofitted ships or newly built medium and large ships.

Manned segment to dominate the market during the forecast period

Based on mode of operation. Manned segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Manned ships are traditional crewed vessels with a human operator to make decisions onshore as well as offshore. Manned ships are expected to lead the electric ships market during the forecast period, driven by the retrofitting of diesel-driven ships with electric and hybrid propulsion.
