The Marine Propulsion Engine Market shows signs of renewed vigor in economies worldwide

Big Market Research added a report on “Marine Propulsion Engine Market By Power Source (Diesel, Gas Turbine, Natural Gas, And Others {Steam Turbine, Renewable Energy, Hybrid, And Fuel Cell}) And Ship Type (Cargo Or Container Ships, Tanker, Bulk Carrier, Offshore Vessel, Passenger Ships, And Others {Tugs & Service Ships}) – Global Opportunity Analysis And Industry Forecast, 2014-2022”

Marine propulsion engine is a machine that, creates thrust to move ships forward or backward. This system comprises sources of energy, engine, and propeller. The marine propulsion engine market is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. This is mainly due to various ongoing government investments in shipbuilding industry and waterways. Ships may integrate with one or more than one propulsion engines, depending on the size (gross tonnage) of ships. Moreover, in the early stage of marine propulsion, steam turbines were used; however, due to advancement in technology nowadays, diesel or alternative fuel engine and gas turbine have greater penetration.

Prominent market players invest significantly in R&D to enhance their technical expertise and product portfolio. For instance, in November 2016, Caterpillar launched C7.1, a six-cylinder, inline, four-stroke diesel marine propulsion engine with turbocharging and after-cooling.
