What is the future of Shore Power Market? Know Covid Impact on Size, Share & Forecasts

on July 26 at 11:10 AM


July 26,2021/IndustryNewsGlobal/ The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Shore Power Market.


Shore Power Market is likely to witness an impressive CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period. The major drivers propelling the growth of the market are the increasing number of cruise liners in the shipping industry, the reduction of low-frequency noise and emissions at ports, and installation of retrofit shore power systems.


Shore Power is the delivery of electrical power to a shore-side ship when its engines are damaged and shutdown. It helps in saving consumption of fuels and eliminates air pollution caused due to fuel. This is a process in which electrical power is supplied from shore to a vessel at berth, enabling auxiliary engines to be turned off. Through this process the shore power removes the diesel emission and other air pollutants.


This report studies the market covering a period of 12 years of trend and forecast. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.


Based on the component type, the market is segmented as transformer, switchgear, frequency converter, cables & accessories, and others. The frequency converter segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the market and is also likely to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Shore power frequency converter lets a ship to be powered by the port’s electrical grid, even though the vessel may have a different operating voltage. By the reduction of the consumption of diesel fuel, energy is conserved with the help of shore power frequency converters. Further, they also bring down air pollution caused by operating the engine unnecessarily while at the port. All these factors contribute to the growth of the segment in the coming five years.


Based on the connection type, the market is segmented as new installation and retrofit. The new installation segment is expected to account for the larger share of the market during the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the fact that ships are required to be properly equipped so as to receive power from a local grid or an outside source. This facilitates the shore power to be effectively implemented. Prevalent ships usually need to be retrofitted with explicit electrical equipment, such as connectors, wiring, transformers, and switchgear, whereas many new ships are now being designed and built with this equipment as an integral part of their electrical system architecture. The new installation segment is expected to bolster the market during the forecast period as the process of retrofitting of shore power in prevalent vessels is far costlier against a new installation, eventually sometimes adding up to twice as much as incremental of the new-build investments.


In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is estimated to account for the largest share of the shore power market during the forecast period and is expected to remain dominant during the same period. The region’s growth is driven by countries such as China, whose container capacity clocked around 250 million standards in 2020. Additionally, China is seen with a promising growth to be the seventh out of the ten largest ports during the forecast period. Other regions such as North America and Europe are also expected to mark their presence in the shore power market during the forecast period driven by increase in installation of retrofit and low-frequency noise reduction & emission at the port.
