Marine Battery Market Analysis

The marine battery market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 18% during the forecast period.

  • The global marine sector witnessed the mild impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Review of Maritime Transport Report 2021, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on maritime trade volumes in 2020 was less severe than initially expected. The report stated that maritime trade contracted by 3.8% in 2020, but it recovered later in 2020 and is projected to increase by 4.3% in 2021.
  • Growing demand for marine freight transportation, an increase in water sports and leisure activities, and rising investments in vessel modernization programs drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, growing automation in marine transportation and rising demand for electric and hybrid vessels will drive market growth in the coming years. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), ocean shipping is the major transport mode for global trade, around 90% of traded goods are carried by sea, which is likely to supplement the growth curve of the market over the forecast period.

Marine Battery Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Marine Battery Market according to our research experts:

Lithium-ion Segment is Projected to Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

The Lithium-ion battery segment is estimated to show remarkable growth during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the growing maritime trade and increasing demand for commercial vessels with electric propulsion. These marine batteries are lightweight, more efficient than lead-acid batteries, and can last up to ten times longer. The batteries provide various advantages such as longer durations, improved safety, higher discharge rates, and required less maintenance. The lithium marine batteries have a lifecycle from 3000 to 5000 cycles. Furthermore, these batteries have high storage capacity, reduced weight, and size. Thus, the rising demand for marine vessels due to increased maritime trade and growing investment in the marine sector will create higher demand for lithium-ion batteries, which will drive the growth of the market.

For instance, in June 2022, Saft, a subsidiary of TotalEnergies, launched a new lithium-ion battery system, Seanergy 2.0, for hybrid and full-electric vessels. It can be scaled to suit propulsion and other loads on board vessels such as workboats and tugs, ferries, cruise liners, offshore support vessels, and yachts. Also, in November 2021, Electric Fuel, a global manufacturer of high-performance batteries launched its new 48V high-energy density lithium-ion marine battery at the METSTRADE 2021 show, held in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The new 48V batteries generate the standard voltage for e-boats and e-mobility. Such factors are likely to drive the demand for lithium-ion batteries over the forecast period.

Europe Is Projected to Dominate the Market During the Forecast Period

Europe held the largest market share in the marine battery market and is anticipated to continue its domination during the forecast period. Europe has the largest maritime territory in the world. Eurostat report stated that 3.5 billion tonnes of freight were handled in European Union ports and the Netherlands remained the largest maritime cargo transport country across the region in 2021. Furthermore, the presence of a large number of commercial vessel operators and the growing procurement of advanced electric propulsion systems for marine vessels drive the growth of the market across Europe.

For instance, in November 2022, Vision Marine, the global innovator in the electric transition of the recreational boating industry, announced that it completed a production contract with Negi, a French manufacturer of specialized batteries and systems. These batteries would be installed in 120 full systems for Vision Marine's E-Motion 180E propulsion system offered to OEMs. In June 2022, Leclanché, a Swiss battery manufacturer, completed the development of the third generation of a marine battery system Navius MRS-3. The first systems are scheduled for delivery in 2023. Thus, growing expenditure on the development of advanced marine batteries boosts the market growth in Europe during the forecast period.

Marine Battery Industry Segmentation

Marine batteries act as a primary power source for naval vessels and use chemical energy to provide power for numerous applications such as windlass, lightning, start-stop, fish locator, and others. Marine batteries are designed for use on ships, with heavier plates and robust construction designed to withstand the vibration that can occur onboard any powerboat. These batteries are designed with sturdier and more elevated plates for electricity. The batteries are protected from the short circuit while bouncing around with the boat during rough waters. These batteries have thicker plates with high levels of antimony, making them capable of large discharges over long periods.

The marine battery market is segmented based on battery, ship type, and geography. By battery, the market is segmented into lithium-ion, nickel-cadmium, fuel cell, and lead-acid. By ship type, the market is segmented into commercial and defense. By geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.
