The global ship hull inspection services market size reached US$ 12.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 14.6 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 2.4% during 2023-2028.
Ship hull inspection services assess the damage and corrosion in the ship hull and aid in determining the ability of the vessels to continue in service without any issues. In line with this, they help ship operators, insurance companies, and government agencies to quantify the extent of corrosion in the hull. These inspection services are widely preferred by the end-users since undetected or delayed identification of hull cracks can lead to significant spending on replacement or repair services later. Hull inspections also have a considerable influence on the environmental performance of a vessel as a clean and smooth hull improves the fuel efficiency of the ship, thereby reducing both emissions and fuel costs.
Ship Hull Inspection Services Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the increasing need for new ships and operations. This demand is fueled by the widespread adoption of uncrewed remote observation vehicles (ROV) for inspection services and vessel maintenance instead of commercial divers with handheld equipment. Moreover, continual developments in ship hull inspection services, such as fully automated ultrasonic scanning, non-destructive testing, and software solutions to track the condition of the hull, are providing a significant boost to the market growth. Besides this, numerous hull inspection service providers are now partnering and collaborating with prominent technology companies to offer advanced solutions that aim to minimize the operation duration of services while ensuring cost savings. The market is further driven by significant growth in the marine industry, a considerable rise in vessel production and the expanding sea routes. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include rapid improvements in ship repair and maintenance supply chains and significant investments in the research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key market players.
