    Turbochargers increase the power and efficiency of marine engines. Turbochargers work by using the exhaust gases from an engine to drive a turbine, which, in turn, drives a compressor. The compressor then forces more air into the engines, which allows it to burn more fuel and produce more power. The marine industry has been experiencing the most disruptive journey in the past decades, with the key emerging areas being net zero emissions, fuel efficiency, alternative fuels, and increasing lifespan. Almost all the major turbocharger manufacturers are putting efforts into the development of turbochargers addressing most of these trends. 

    Growing requirements for minimizing operating costs and increasing engine efficiency, a shifting inclination towards decreasing fuel consumption and emission levels coupled with enhancements in the efficiency of engines, stringent maritime emission regulatory norms, increasing environmental concerns, and the strong presence of manufacturers are the major factors driving the growth of the market.

    Recent Product Developments:

    • By 2025, Accelleron will release next-generation axial turbochargers for net-zero carbon fuel applications, such as green ammonia, in low-speed and large medium-speed turbochargers for the marine and power industries.
    • In 2020, Accelleron launched the TPX Turbocharger for high-speed diesel and gas engines, which is 30% lighter in weight and requires 16% less space.

    Recent Market Collaborations:

    • In 2022, Accelleron, formerly known as ABB Turbocharging, and Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) have inked an agreement, allowing Accelleron turbochargers to be utilized in UE Engines, one of the top three manufacturers of low-speed marine engines worldwide.
    • In 2022, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment Co., Ltd. (MHI-MME) concluded a licensing agreement, giving Mitsui E&S Machinery Co., Ltd. the rights to manufacture and sell its MET turbochargers.

    By Mode of Operation

    Based on the mode of operation, the marine turbocharger market is segmented into radial turbochargers and axial turbochargers. Radial turbocharger is projected to be the dominant segment of the market owing to their increasing applications in small-sized four-stroke engines. New innovative ideas for recreating its design with minimized emission levels, higher-pressure ratios, cost-effectiveness, and availability in various sizes are further expected to boost product demand during the forecast period.

    On the other hand, the axial turbocharger is estimated to witness a significant growth rate during the forecast period, owing to increasing applications in large two-stroke engines. Further, enhancements in turbochargers with compact size and high capacity are leading to a decrease in weight and initial cost without compromising power output, fueling the market growth in the coming years.

    By Engine Type

    Based on the engine type, the marine turbocharger market is segmented into low- & medium-speed engines and high-speed engines. Low & medium-speed engines are projected to be the dominant engine types of the market owing to the high usage of low-speed engines in commercial ships, especially merchant ships with single engine sizes of 8-80 MW. The Medium-speed engine is preferred for coastal and inland vessels, offshore vessels, ferries, and cruise ships (2-20 MW single engine size); hence, the larger fleet of commercial ships, offshore vessels, and cruise ships have a higher number of low- & medium-speed engines. The high-speed engine is preferred in military ships and recreational boats. High-speed engines are lighter in weight and require less maintenance.

    By Technology-Type

    Based on the technology type, the market is segmented into single turbo, twin-turbo, electric-assist turbo, and variable geometry turbo. Single turbo is estimated to remain the dominant technology type during the forecast period. Single turbos are becoming increasingly popular in Asia-Pacific and Europe due to the high usage of turbochargers in China and Japan. Single turbos are cost-effective and reliable, making them a good choice for smaller engines. They are also less complex and easier to maintain than the twin turbos, which makes them a good choice for powerboats and cruise applications. Two-stroke engines are more commonly used for low-speed engines, as they are simpler and less expensive than four-stroke engines.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for marine turbochargers during the forecast period. This region has a large number of ship-building activities, and the presence of major OEMs, such as Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and MAN Energy Solutions, in the Asia-Pacific region make the region a growth engine of the marine industry. Most of the marine turbocharger suppliers also have their presence in the region to address the emergent needs of OEMs and to be the partners for their fuel-efficient versions of existing marine programs. Rising global trade with China, Japan, and India is also driving the region’s growth.
