Lithium-Ion ESS in Commercial Ships Market To Reach USD 3,539.1 Million By 2032 | DataHorizzon Research

The growth of Lithium-Ion ESS in the commercial ships market is propelled by the advancement of technology and digital transformation solutions.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Feb. 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Lithium-Ion ESS in Commercial Ships Market size was valued at USD 260.1 Million in 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of USD 3,539.1 Million by 2032 at a CAGR of 30%.

Lithium-ion energy storage systems are commonly used in commercial shipping to increase fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These systems can be used in all-electric or hybrid propulsion systems in conjunction with diesel or gas turbines, generators, and electric motors.

Hybrid propulsion systems are especially attractive to passenger ferries and shuttles that spend most of their operational life in the harbor for docking and undocking. By switching to clean electric power in the harbor, GHG emissions can be considerably reduced, and port authorities can meet their environmental targets. Additionally, these systems offer much quieter operations that reduce noise pollution in the local community. When the yacht is moored, the battery can also support hotel loads, providing a green, quiet, and vibration-free alternative to running diesel generators while waiting for access to harbor power points.

Furthermore, merchant vessels operating in the Baltic and the North Sea emission control areas have adopted hybrid propulsion systems to reduce their environmental impact and take advantage of the region’s cheap hydropower and wind power energy sources. The Sten Tor and Sten Odin are two chemical tankers that mainly operate in this region, and they are the first tankers to use a hybrid propulsion system. With a battery size of only 181 kWh, Sten Tor has achieved a yearly fuel savings of approximately 22%, demonstrating the significant savings that can be made using these hybrid propulsion systems. Therefore, the focus on increasing energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions is expected to drive the adoption of hybrid propulsion systems and, in turn, the demand for lithium-ion energy storage systems over the forecast period.
