Global Electric Boat and Ship Market to Reach US$ 11.22 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Enhanced Focus on Sustainable Development

Published on Mar 09, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Electric Boat and Ship Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global electric boat and ship market reached a value of US$ 5.28 Billion in 2021. Electric boat and ship refer to small-sized passenger ships that are generally propelled using batteries. They mainly comprise a controller, an electric motor and a battery pack that offers improved operational efficiency. Their batteries are commonly manufactured using lithium-iron-phosphate, nickel and lead-acid materials that provide electric propulsion to electric boats and ships. In comparison to traditional marine vessels, they are environmentally friendly, create lesser noise, have minimal fuel requirements and are cost-efficient to operate. Along with this, they are produced using durable and lightweight materials that generate minimal dragging and optimal propulsion for the vehicle.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
