The marine propulsion engine market was valued at $9 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach $12 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 4.1 percent from 2016 to 2022, according to a new report published by Allied Market Research. Diesel propulsion system segment is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Asia-Pacific accounted for the highest share of 51 percent in 2015, and is anticipated to maintain this trend.   Increase in production and sales of ships globally and rise in international seaborne trade drives the market growth. In addition, increase in demand for resources such as crude oil, coal, steel, and iron from developing countries is another driver for the growth of the market. However, stringent environmental rules and regulations and large capital investment required to set up new manufacturing facilities hamper the market growth. Moreover, rise in usage of inland waterways and advancement in technology, such as new alternative fuel propulsion engine, are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for new products and boost the market growth.   Power source segment is divided into diesel, gas turbine, natural gas, and others (steam turbine, renewable energy, hybrid, and fuel cell). In 2015, diesel propulsion engine accounted for the largest revenue, and is anticipated to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to high efficiency and low cost of engine as compared to others
