Tugboat Engine Market : Industry Insights, Trends and Forecast upto 2025

Tugboats, also known as tugs, are powerful boats used for maneuvering larger containerships, tankers, and cruiser ships in and around dockyards and harbors. Tugboats are also employed for pushing or pulling non-self-propelled vessels such as barges and oil platforms. These boats are quintessential in docking/harboring operations and help larger vessels and ships to pass through slender passages. Engines required to empower these tugs are also large and powerful. These engines provide power to move huge vessels around.

Rise in trade and commerce calls for more number of shipping containers, oil tankers, and bulk carriers. This is boosting the demand for tugboats and their engines. Increase in demand for LNG has also led to commissioning of large number of LNG carrier ships. Growth in tourism has also resulted in commissioning of larger and better cruise ships. These factors are driving the demand for tugboats for harbor operations and canal passage. Advancements in technology for improving fuel efficiency, safety, and smooth operation of tugboats is also a major factor augmenting the tugboat engine market.
