Outboard Engines Market: Segment-wise Analysis
On the basis of power, the global outboard engines market is segmented into less than 30 HP, 30HP to 100 HP, and above 100 HP. The high horsepower category outboard engines are in high demand owing to the increasing demand for heavier boats. The increasing sales of lengthy boats is expected to drive the demand for heavy outboard engines in the coming years. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on introducing high power engines. Although, high power engines are gaining significant traction in the market in terms of volume share, low and mid-sized engines account for relatively high demand.
By technology type, the global market is segmented into five segments such as two stroke carbureted, two stroke electronic fuel injections, two stroke direct injection systems, four stroke carbureted, and four stroke electronic fuel injections. The four stroke electronic fuel injection segment is projected to dominate the global market throughout the forecast period owing to its high demand for being noiseless and vibration free. Furthermore, the four stroke carbureted segment is expected to be the second most opportunistic segment in the global market.
By start type, the global outboard engines market is categorized into electric start type and manual start type. However, the manual start type segment is significantly lower in cost, electric start type outboard engines are more popular in demand. The electric start type segment is estimated to account for nearly 75% of the total market throughout the forecast period.
On the basis of the boat type, the global outboard engines market is segmented into three segments such as fishing vessels, recreational vessels, and special purpose boats. From the global perspective, the fishing vessels segment is estimated to dominate the market accounting for above 40% share. The growing marine tourism is anticipated to propel the demand for recreational vessels. This, in turn, is estimated to project substantial opportunities in the global outboard engines market.
