Market Overview

The Chinese controllable pitch marine propeller market was valued at USD 415.97 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 607.21 million in 2027 by registering a CAGR of 5.93% during the forecast period (2022 – 2027).

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic hindered the growth of the controllable pitch marine propeller market in China as the shipbuilding activities were on halt due to lockdown measures and a halt in international maritime transportation. However, since the second half of 2020, as the international logistics activities started to become normal, the demand for ships and vessels witnessed an increase, driving the demand for marine propellers.

With that, the global logistic industry is gaining back its pace, which will increase marine transportation, for it is a relatively budget-friendly way to transport goods and parcels. Alongside, maritime tourism is also on the rise, which will further drive the demand for various ships.

As China is the world's largest shipbuilder, the Chinese controllable pitch marine propeller market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. For instance, in 2021, China accounted for a 43.1% global share in the number of orders delivered and 48.8% of the global orders.

The Chinese controllable pitch marine propeller market is fairly consolidated. Some of the major players include Wartsila Oyj Abp, UC Marine (China) Company Limited, MAN Energy Solutions SE, and Hyundai.

Scope of the Report

A marine propeller is a machine with a rotating hub attached to several blades that produce thrust when supplied with rotational force. Of various types, the controllable pitch marine propeller is among the most advanced as the pitch of the blades can be varied. The pitch of the blades controls the amount of thrust produced by the propeller. The steeper angle of attack translates to more thrust by the propeller.

The Chinese controllable pitch marine propeller market is segmented by number of blades (two and three blades, four blades, and five blades), application (passenger vessels and commercial/cargo vessels), and ship type (tug and push boats, ferries, ice breakers, and other ship types). The report offers market size and forecast in USD million for all the above segments.

Key Market Trends

Growth in Marine Logistics

The shipping or logistics industry is considered the backbone of the global economy as it accounts for a large share of the goods transported across the world. In the logistics industry, seaways are the relatively budget-friendly mode of transporting parcels and goods. Growth in maritime logistics is expected to drive the demand for new ships, which in turn, will drive the demand for controllable pitch propellers.

Over the years, the number of goods transported via seaways has increased, and over 90% of the global trade is carried out by maritime transportation. The trade volumes are expected to triple by 2050. For instance, in 2019, 11,071 million metric ton of loaded freight was transported through seaways. Despite worldwide lockdowns, the number fell by just 3%. The trade volume is expected to increase during the forecasted period.

As China is the leading shipbuilding industry across the world, the demand for controllable pitch marine propellers is anticipated to witness growth. The country has a total of 1,200 registered shipyards that produce a wide range of fleets, including vessels of different sizes and capacities.

Two and Three Blades Propeller to Witness Significant Growth

Two- and three-blade propellers are primarily used in small passenger boats and ships. Two- and three-blade propellers have their own positives, such as lower manufacturing costs and high-speed operation, which is beneficial for small boats and vessels. Therefore, a significant number of controllable pitch propellers are three-blade propellers.

The two and three-blade propellers segment accounts for the majority of the market share, and the rise in demand for small boats and ships is expected to boost the Chinese controllable pitch marine propeller market. For instance, many countries are placing orders with Chinese ship manufacturers for LNG vessels that will aid in the growth of the market. For example,

  • In January 2022, Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group Co. received an order for six LNG carriers from Japan's Mitsui OSK Lines worth USD 1.18 billion.
  • In October 2021, Qatar signed an agreement of USD 3 billion and placed an order for four LNG vessels with Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding Group Co. (Hudong), a unit of China State Shipbuilding Corp.
