Ship scrubbers are exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS) that clean exhaust emissions by removing hazardous substances. Increasing stringency in regulatory standards for sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides emissions by government agencies such as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the European Commission is driving the market size for marine scrubbers. Moving large volumes of cargo around the world, the shipping industry is one of the leading sub-sectors of the transport sector that adheres to strict IMO environmental standards. The Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) has prioritized air pollution elimination and as a result numerous laws have been implemented to reduce hazardous emissions from ships such as carbon dioxide, sulfur oxide and nitrous oxide. SOx and NOx are both combustion products that are released into the environment as smoke.

Sulfur washing is an attractive option to meet International Maritime Organization requirements while reducing vessel operating costs. Leading manufacturers are developing scrubber technologies with special features to enable the maritime industry to operate more sustainably. One of the trends in the ship washer market that is contributing to the success of the industry is the growing interest in ship automation. In addition, the increasing use of various sensors in ship washers will drive the market demand in the coming years.

Impact of COVID-19 on Marine Scrubber Market Split

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, shipowners are delaying or canceling the installation of ship scrubbers that extract toxic sulfur emissions from their ships. Due to the industry’s financial constraints created by a drop in demand for cargo services as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, shipowner scrubbers may have fewer opportunities to comply with regulations. The IMO mandated ship scrubber installation regulations from January 1st, 2020 were expected to create significant opportunities in the market, although the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic has presented an obstacle to the growth of the ship scrubber market. Aside from that, some leading companies have shipped a record-breaking number of scrubbers in 2020 despite the COVID-19 epidemic. This shows the continued interest from the global fleet in emission reduction systems as long-term solutions. For example, in November 2020, Wärtsilä received a major order from Japan Marine United (JMU) to install a 25 MW scrubber onboard a new Japanese-owned Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC), due for delivery in 2022.

Marine Scrubber Market Dynamics

Growing environmental concerns and improving government regulations are driving ship scrubber market share. The increasing focus on occupational safety is another factor driving the growth of the industry. Increasing demand for ship washers in large containers and oil/chemical vessels is expanding market share. However, the high cost of installing these systems and the need for significant onboard storage for handling the reactants are some of the factors limiting market growth.

Immediate regulation of the sulfur ceiling imposed Through International Maritime Organization (IMO) Drive Market share of marine scrubbers

According to International Maritime Organization (IMO) standards, the sulfur content of fuels carried by merchant ships must be reduced to 0.5% worldwide and in ECAs (Emission Control Areas; The North Sea Area, The Baltic Sea Area, The United States, Canada and the US-Caribbean Territory). Stricter sulfur limits have essentially halved sulfur dioxide emissions near SECAs, benefiting local residents in coastal regions and ports, while having little overall economic impact on the sector. As a result, ship scrubbers are being installed on a large number of ships to meet international standards and requirements while staying within budget.

Marine Scrubber Market Segmentation

The global market has been segmented into five categories: Technology, Fuel Type, Vessel Type, Application, and Region.

The technology area is divided into wet and dry technology. The wet technology segment is further categorized into closed-loop, hybrid and open-loop. Among them, hybrid technology is expected to gain considerable traction in the coming years due to its numerous advantages compared to open-loop and closed-loop technologies.

By fuel type, segmentation includes MDO, MGO, LNG, and Hybrid. Based on our ship scrubber industry analysis, the MGO fuel type is likely to see rapid growth due to its ability to produce comparatively lower quality sulfur emissions into the atmosphere.

Vessel type includes commercial (bulk carriers, containers, tankers and roll-on/roll-off), recreational vessels (cruise ships, yachts, ferries), offshore (AHTS, PSV, FSV and MPSV) and marine. In 2021, merchant vessels generate maximum market revenue for sea scrubbers due to growing international trade. However, the leisure and offshore vessels are expanding with rapid growth in the projected timeframe of 2022 to 2030.

In addition, the application segment is divided into new construction and retrofitting. According to our ship washer market forecast, the retrofit application is expected to lead the market with the largest shares. The high growth in this segment is attributed to the immediate mandatory installation of ship washers and the requirement for lower installation expenditure on existing structures compared to new build applications.

Regional Outlook for Marine Scrubber Market

North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa account for the bulk of the global ship washer industry. In 2021, the European Union collected a significant market share of ship washers. The growing regulatory standards to reduce sulfur emissions and the existence of the world’s leading commercial shipping line support the European ship scrubber market. Additionally, the North American marine scrubber market stood for a second-largest position in the global scenario due to increased budget spending on military vessels and increased focus on offshore applications. The Asia-Pacific region, on the other hand, is likely to see the fastest growth rate in the coming years due to the growing fleet of ships in countries like China, India, Japan and South Korea.
