Electric Ships Market – Trends Forecast Till 2028

Electric Ships Market Size is projected to grow at a USD of 15.7 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 10.8% from 2021 to 2028.

An electric boat is a form of electric vehicle designed to carry off marine operations by propelling the boat through batteries rather than by fuel. Batteries used in electric boats are similar to the batteries used in electric vehicles. Electric ships are mainly ferries and small passenger ships on inland waterways that sail completely with electricity. They sail only short distances and dock often.

International Maritime Organization’s ruling on reducing sulphur emissions and worldwide adoption of fully electric passenger vessels is the factor that has supported long-term expansion for Electric Ships Market.

The COVID-19 pandemic hampered the growth of the electric boat and ship market due to the shutdown of manufacturing facilities and trade restrictions imposed worldwide.

Electric Ships Market Report

Europe is projected to grow the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the increase in demand for electric ships for fully electric passenger vessels, tugs, yachts, and cruise vessels, among others. Countries such as Norway, Finland, and Denmark have actively started replacing conventional passenger ferries with fully electric passenger ferries. Major developments in autonomous electric vessels that use fuel cells and remotely controlled electric vessels are also driving the market in Europe to grow.
