Global Marine Scrubber Market is valued at approximately USD 4.9 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 16.2% over the forecast period 2022-2029. A marine scrubber, also known as a marine exhaust gas cleaning system, is a technology used to reduce air pollution emissions from marine vessels, such as ships and tankers. The system works by cleaning the exhaust gases emitted by the ship's engines, which typically contain pollutants such as sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and particulate matter (PM). The scrubber system uses a combination of water and chemicals, such as caustic soda, to neutralize these pollutants before they are released into the atmosphere. Marine scrubbers can be installed as either an open-loop system or a closed-loop system. Open-loop scrubbers use seawater to neutralize pollutants, while closed-loop scrubbers use fresh water and store the resulting wastewater for later treatment or disposal. The use of marine scrubbers is a cost-effective way for shipping companies to comply with regulations on emissions, such as the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) sulfur cap. This regulation, which came into effect in January 2020, limits the amount of sulfur in fuel oil used on board ships to 0.5% or less, down from the previous limit of 3.5%. The key factors driving the market growth are air pollution prevention policies and laws imposed by the government to protect the environment, implementation of sulphur 2020 rule, growing international marine freight transport, and rising demand for cargo transportation through ships are anticipated to create the lucrative demand for the market during the forecast period.
The rising maritime freight transportation is anticipated to create demand for the market. With the increase in international trade and marine freight transport, there has been a corresponding rise in the number of ships operating globally. This has led to an increase in demand for marine scrubbers as shipping companies seek to reduce their emissions and comply with regulations. As per the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (Japan)., coastwise shipping moved about 324.66 million tons of goods in the fiscal year 2021, up 6.1 per cent from the prior year. Most of the domestic maritime freight was transported by private vessels, totalling about 323.76 million tons. Also, according to The Indian Brand Equity Foundation, sea ports handle almost 95% of India's international trade in goods. Along with these, according to India's Ministry of Port, the cargo traffic at the country's main ports in 2020 was estimated to reach 414.20 million metrics tons. In 2021, this traffic climbed 12.9% over the first quarter of the previous year. As a result, the rising international maritime trade is anticipated to support market growth. Additionally, rising demand for sustainable methods to control sulfur emissions from ships and growing e-commerce and online trade is anticipated to create a lucrative opportunity for the market during the forecast period. However, the high installation and maintenance cost of Marine Scrubber stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.
