Rising Usage of Ferries for Transportation Purposes to Boost Market

Marine propulsion is a system or mechanism which is employed for generating thrust to move boat or ship across water. In hybrid and full electric marine propulsion systems, mostly battery packs are used for the propulsion. The minor difference between these two types of propulsions include the source of power for generating the propulsion. In full electric marine vessels, complete propulsion is made by the usage of rechargeable batteries. On the other hand, in hybrid marine vessels, alternate fuel such as LNG and Diesel as well as battery are utilized to make the propulsion. Such USPs are driving the global hybrid and full electric marine propulsion market. Along with this, governments’ stringent regulations in pertaining carbon emissions along with oil spillage are augmenting demand in the global hybrid and full electric marine propulsion market.
