Market Trends for Marine Turbochargers

  • The global marine turbocharger market is segmented into two segments based on operation type: axial and radial. In terms of volume and value, the radial segment led the global marine turbocharger market in 2020.
  • Radial turbochargers utilize less engine power than axial turbochargers and are easier to install, hence demand for radial marine turbochargers is high. In terms of revenue, the axial sector also maintained a major proportion of the market in 2020. During the forecast period, the segment is expected to grow.
  • In terms of revenue, the recreational boats category accounted for a significant part of the global market in 2020. The increased selling of yachts and motorboats around the world is expected to drive demand

Global Market for Marine Turbocharger: Regional Outlook

Various reasons are propelling the growth of the marine turbocharger market in different regions. These are:

  • During the forecast period, North America and Asia Pacific are expected to be very profitable markets. The increased demand for recreational boats in these regions is expected to drive the marine turbocharger industry.
  • The rising trend of marine and coastal tourism in these locations is expected to push the marine turbocharger market. Asia Pacific, after North America, accounted for a considerable share of the global market in terms of both revenue and volume in 2020. The existence of ship manufacturers throughout the region is also expected to propel the Asia Pacific marine turbocharger industry.
  • In North America, there is a significant emphasis on upgrading and retrofitting existing marine vessels to meet stricter emission standards and improve fuel efficiency.
  • Many older vessels may not meet current environmental regulations, and turbochargers are often retrofitted to existing engines to enhance their performance, reduce emissions, and comply with environmental standards. This need for retrofitting and upgrading older vessels is driving the demand for marine turbochargers in the North American market.
