Report Overview

The global marine fuel injection system market size was valued at USD 4.8 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.36% over the forecast period. The seaborne trade across the globe is increasing, which in turn, is driving the demand for marine fuel injection components, such as pumps and valves. Moreover, stringent government regulations pertaining to marine emissions is expected to propel the product demand.

Europe marine fuel injection system market size

Shipbuilders as well as component providers are investing in research and development activities to develop highly efficient products. The international trade is increasing as a result of reduced subsidies and reduced restrictions on exports and imports respectively. Importers and exporters prefer maritime transport due to higher transportation capacity and lower costs than road or rail transport.

Moreover, sea transport is more carbon-efficient than other mediums of transport. In addition, rising trend of retrofitting old ships with the latest systems and technologies is expected to have a positive impact on the products sales. Fuel injection systems form a vital part in the entire propulsion system of the ship and are responsible for maintaining the adequate fuel supply in the combustion chamber for efficient functioning of the engine.

The complex functioning of these injectors makes them prone to damage or malfunction and therefore requires frequent replacements. Thus, short lifespan of these components coupled with rapidly expanding shipping industry is expected to boost the product demand over the forecast period.

Component Insights

Based on component, the marine fuel injection system market has been segmented into injectors, pumps, valves, Electronic Control Units (ECUs), and others. The others segment includes components, such as fuel pressure regulators. The injectors segment held the largest market share in 2019. The ECU segment is projected to register significant growth over the coming years.

The ECUs regulate and alter the vital control units that include air, fuel, as well as the injection timing. The entire functioning of the ECU is based on the signals received from a series of sensors installed in it. The ECUs, therefore, play a vital role in achieving high engine performance along with reduced emissions.

Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into commercial and defense. The commercial segment held the largest share in 2019 and will maintain its dominance during the forecast years. Increased maritime trade across the globe is expected to boost the demand for ships and would also increase the usage of existing ships in the marine ecosystem. As a result, the product demand in the commercial segment is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period.

Global marine fuel injection system market share

Maritime trade accounts for around 90% of the global overseas trade due to cheap and efficient transport of fleet offered by this mode of transport. In addition, the regulatory bodies have made stringent CO2 emission policies due to which component suppliers are investing in developing efficient fuel supply components.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific region led the market in 2019. It is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The higher share of the region is attributed to the countries, such as China, Japan, and South Korea, as they hold majority share in the shipbuilding activities across the globe. However, due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 has highly impacted the global economies including that of China. However, reduction in the effects of COVID-19 would involve a sudden boost in the production and therefore in the amount of exports. As a result, Chinese companies will make high use of marine transport to export goods at low costs. This is expected to have a positive impact on regional market over the forecast period.

Europe is expected to register the highest growth rate over the forecast period. The region has a major maritime tourism market across the globe, which has resulted in the increased number of ships, thereby propelling market growth. Moreover, rising popularity of watersports in this region is propelling the product demand, which in turn, boosts market growth.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Key companies have undertaken various strategies, such as mergers & acquisitions, partnerships, and contractual agreements, to achieve higher market share. Moreover, companies are investing in R&D activities to develop new and advanced products. For instance, in November 2018, Liebherr International AG introduced its newly designed & developed hydraulic injection components for the Chinese market. Some of the prominent players in the marine fuel injection system market include:

  • Caterpillar, Inc.

  • Rolls-Royce Plc

  • Yanmar Co. Ltd.

  • Woodward, Inc.
