Global Marine Fuel Management Industry was valued at USD 4.33 Billion in the year 2018. Global Marine Fuel Management Industry is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2018 to 2025 to reach USD 6.2 Billion. The global marine fuel management industry is estimated to expand at a rapid pace, driven by rise in fuel oil prices and stringent regulations imposed against vessel emissions and fuel usage. Moreover, strict laws against the consumption of natural resources such as crude oil have compelled the fleet owners to use marine fuel oil conservatively. In order to make effecient use of marine fuel oil, owners prefer metering and monitoring solutions to gauge the quality and quantity fuel oil. The price of Marine fuel depend upon the crude oil price in market. Fluctuations are observed in prices of crude oil due to imbalance in its supply and demand and the costs associated with its extraction and transportation. Increase in prices of crude oil would imply a rise in prices of marine fuel oil. High prices of marine fuel oil would result in the necessity for efficient fuel management. Thus, escalation in prices of marine fuel oil and stringent regulations against emissions and usage of marine fuel oil are anticipated to drive the marine fuel management industry in the near future.
Under the International Maritime Organization (Regulation 14), a review was undertaken to assess fuel oil availability, and the fuel oil standard was decided to be 0.50% m/m (effective from 01/01/2020). Henceforth, ship vessels that operate both outside and inside the ECA will operate on different fuel oils in order to comply with the respective limits. Under these circumstances, prior to entering the ECA, the vessel needs to completely operate on ECA compliant fuel and has to undergo a complete change-over to ECA compliant fuel oil while exiting the ECA.
Under International Maritime Organization (Regulation 18), actual sulfur content of the fuel oil that is bunkered is to be monitored and measured. There are methods by which equivalent levels of SOx and particulate matter emissions can be controlled. The primary method avoids the formation of the pollutant and the secondary method removes some degree of pollutants prior to discharging the exhaust gas stream to the atmosphere.
In terms of revenue, Europe and Asia Pacific are the leading regions of the marine fuel management industry. Globally, oil and gas prices are expected to rise at a moderate pace. The Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit highest growth of more than 4% CAGR for the forecast period. This trend is likely to be followed by the Middle East & African region during the forecast period. In terms of industry capitalization, Europe and Asia Pacific region are industry leaders and are expected to follow the trend during 2018-2025. The fuel monitoring segment is expected to expand at a rapid pace, especially in developing economies of APAC and MEA. The fleet management segment is projected to expand at a rapid pace due to rise in awareness among the fleet owners and increase in adoption rate of fuel management systems. In terms of country, the industry in China, Singapore, Brazil, and Mexico are is expected to expand at a significant CAGR on account of movement of fleets, fleet size, fuel consumption, and trading activities in these regions during the forecast period.
