Global Electric Boat Market Overview
Electric boats are mostly used for
recreational purposes, and they are operated through the battery-powered rotor
to move in the water. The electric boats are increasingly replacing
fuel-powered boats due to stringent government norms for controlling carbon
emissions and growing environmental concerns. The electric boat market consists
of manufacturers, engine manufacturers, trade partners, equipment suppliers,
and service providers.
The market is undergoing substantial technological alterations. Some of the manufacturers use smart sensors in boat building to enhance safety. They also bring variations in the materials used to make boats cost-effective and efficient with optimum weight. Awareness about technology advancements in boats and other features and easy financing options also propel the demand for electric boats. The government initiatives in favor of aqua tourism, growing used of electric boats in water sports, infrastructure and tourism development, and increasing recreational activities across the globe have induced the market for electric boats.
Electric Boat Market Outlook and Trends
Increasing Emphasis on Reducing Carbon and
Different governments introduce compliance to harmful emissions of sulfur and carbon dioxide from liquid fuels to decrease the pollutants in water bodies and air. For instance, the European Commission introduced amendments in compliance standards to minimize the sulfur content to 0.5% in fuels by 2020 for all marine boats. Some states have banned internal combustion engines from maintaining ecological balance. For instance, SunMoon Lake boat operators in Taiwan unanimously agree to use emission-free fuel. Such regulations and growing ecological concerns drive the growth of the electric boat market.
Growing Investment Outlays and
Advancements in Technology
The number of electric boat manufacturers
has increased, and they are also enhancing investment in their capabilities and
advanced technology. The advanced batteries used in hybrid and electric boats
improve the affordability and efficiency of the boats. These factors are likely
to trigger growth for the electric boat market. Pure electric outboard motors
have become more affordable, and more energy harvesting is possible on the
craft to charge batteries, improving range. The lithium-ion batteries give
longer life, fast charging, and higher load-carrying capacity.
Higher cost and Difficult
Replacement of Propulsion System
The electric boats include high
horse-powered motors requiring fast speed chargers, in turn, escalating its
cost. The higher cost restricts its market growth. Besides, the maintenance and
replacement of components in the electric boat propulsion system are
complicated, hindering the fast adoption of electric and hybrid marine
Technical limitations of lithium-ion
Though lithium-ion battery offers many
advantages as mentioned above, electric boats using these batteries are not
suitable for extensive marine use. They face technical limitations related to
energy and power density, useful life, charging rate, size, and weight, and
this factor limits its market growth.
Impact of COVID-19 in industry
People across the globe are following
social distancing and prefer to work from home due to prevalent coronavirus
conditions. Most of the economies are facing slowdown or slump in economic
activities, and the economic indicators such as national income, employment
rate, industrial production, investment rate, and other indices are showing
The electric boat market caters to the
recreational requirements of the population. But due to COVID-19 prevalence,
people prefer to stay at home for safety and avoid outing activities. But once
this situation ends, the electric boat market is expected to grow
Global Electrical Boat Market Segmentation
The Global Electric Boat Market is
segmented into three categories based on Propulsion Type, Battery Type, and
Power Output. Based on Propulsion Type, the market is subdivided into the
Hybrid Boats and Pure Electric Boats. Hybrid boats are widely deployed because
of their reliability, low operational costs, and higher load capacity. This
segment is expected to record the highest CAGR during the projected period.
Based on Battery type, the market is again
divided into Lead-acid, Lithium-ion, and Nickel-Based Battery electric boats.
Lithium-ion battery-based segment attracts more demand due to fast charging,
longer useful life, and higher load capacity and is anticipated to dominate the
Global Electric Boat Market.
Based on Power Output, the electric boat
market is divided into Large, Medium, and Small Boats. The electric boats
require power output as per their size. For recreational activities like
fishing and kayaking, small boats with lesser power output requirements are
preferred, while large or medium boats are suitable for family recreational
activities or parties.
Europe Electric Boat Market is expected to
record the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the growing demand
for electric boats for different purposes and stringent environmental
compliances to reach net-zero greenhouse emissions. Countries like Britain,
France, Italy, Germany, and Spain use electric boats for recreational purposes.
In contrast, Norway, Finland, and Denmark actively use the same for ferrying
passengers. Also, increasing participation of people in boating activities and
rising recreational boating events & trade shows by manufacturers are anticipated
to supplement the market growth.
North America is the second-largest market
for electric boats. It is expected to register a significant growth rate during
the upcoming period due to the rise in demand for recreational watercraft.
Also, factors such as higher living standards and disposable income in these
regions drive the market growth.
The Asia Pacific market is poised to
witness a significant growth rate due to the use of abundant water resources by
significant countries such as China and India. The government of China has
actively undertaken measures to promote recreational boating activities.
The Global Electric Boat Market is highly fragmented with
numerous unorganized players. As new players are likely to enter the market
with new models during the forecast period, it will become even more
fragmented. North America and Europe have a large number of manufacturers. The
key players in this market are Canadian Electric Boat Company (US), Ruban Bleu (UK),
Baja Marine Inc. (US), Grove Boats SA (Switzerland), Bavaria Yachtbau
GmbH(Germany), Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) Inc.(Canada), Brunswick
