Marine propulsion is a mechanism or system used to generate thrust to move a ship or boat across water. The setup of a propulsion system depends on the vessel size, transport system, and type of operation. Diesel marine propulsion system is a common type of marine propulsion system. The segment constitutes more than 46% share of the global marine propulsion market. Diesel marine propulsion systems are used in almost all types of vessels such as mall boats, ferries, defense vessels, and recreational vessels. In full electric marine propulsion systems, the engine is directly connected to the generator. Full electric marine propulsion enhances the overall efficiency of the vessel and also reduces the carbon footprint. Full electric marine propulsion system consists of a series of motors and generators. Electric power is transmitted from the engine to the propeller shaft through the motor controller and electric motor.

Implementation of stringent regulations related to minimization of harmful carbon emissions has propelled the demand for advanced propulsion systems. Increase in seaborne trade has resulted in spillage of marine fuel in the marine ecosystem. Therefore, governments of several countries are funding and supporting development and adoption of the latest technology in marine propulsion systems.

Several firms are actively developing fuel-efficient marine propulsion systems. Rise in demand for small- and mid-size vessels with fuel-efficient propulsion systems used in inland waterways is expected to drive the global marine propulsion market during the forecast period. Developed as well as developing countries are investing significantly in the defense sector. Demand for marine propulsion systems in Asia Pacific is gaining momentum due to the rise in seaborne trade and increase in the manufacture of new vessels as well as upgrade of existing vessels.
