Exploring possibilities in the sea for natural resources and other benefits are experiencing precedence in the present and future plans of various countries. But the last few years is also witnessing a shift in the trend of the vehicles used in doing so. The trend is shifting more towards the adoption of the electric vehicle sidelining the traditional fossil-fuel based ones considerably. This trend is growing popular as they produce less carbon and are perfect supplements for the traditional ones.
The latest technologies are also backing it up amply by generating new sources of renewable energy such as solar, wind, water, and nuclear. The cost is expected to drop down considerably to boost the market further. Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) have massive application in hydrocarbon extraction, detailed mapping of the ocean shore and scientific research. Defense sector profits much from these kinds of vehicle. Owing to the multiple uses of marine electric vehicles the global market for it is expected to register a staggering 10% CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023), reveals Market Research Future (MRFR) in a minutely studied report.
However, high battery cost and related issues can forestall the expected growth during the review period. Subsequently, many vehicle owners may refuse to switch to this by neglecting the profits in the long run. But this cannot deter the growth for long.
Growing ecological awareness has influenced international bodies such as the International Maritime Organization considerably into taking actions against water pollution perpetrated by the traditional boats. The organization has planned to reduce carbon footprint by 40% by 2030 and has asked people to install batteries instead of using fossil fuels.
MG Energy Systems has introduced recently high-end lithium-ion batteries, a result of advanced technologies, to offer optimal performance to marine vehicles that are expected to set new trends in marine transport category.
The global market for a marine electric vehicle can be segmented by craft application, vehicle type, and platform.
By craft application, the market is further segmented into military, workboat, leisure & tourist surface boat, autonomous underwater vehicle, personal & tourist submarine, and others. In terms of value, military segment holds the largest market share.
Based on vehicle type, the market includes battery electric vehicle, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and hybrid electric vehicle. Hybrid vehicles are gaining traction owing to their wide range of uses.
Platform-wise, the market includes on-water and under-water.
