Global and China Marine Diesel Engine Industry Report 2018 -


The "Global
and China Marine Diesel Engine Industry Report, 2018"
has been added to's offering.

The depressed world shipbuilding industry has dragged down marine diesel
engine industry since 2011, and the global output of marine diesel
engine showed a CAGR of -17.4% between 2012 and 2016. As the global
shipping market began to rally over the past two years, the production
of marine diesel engine revved up, reaching roughly 33.5 million
horsepower in 2017 with a year-on-year increase of 7.0%.

The world-renowned marine diesel engine manufacturers are mainly from
South Korea, China and Japan. China produced 10.009 million kW (a third
of the global total) marine diesel engines in 2017, up 2.2% on an annual
basis, and showing production recovery in the country after a decline
for five consecutive years.

By product in China, output of low-speed marine diesel engines was
around 5.791 million kW in 2017, occupying 57.9% of the country's total
marine diesel engine production; that of high-speed marine diesel
engines remained at roughly 799,000 kW, with market share falling to
8.0% in 2017 from 26.7% in 2012 as it gets used less.

As concerns rivalry, Chinese marine diesel engine market is almost
monopolized by affiliates of China State Shipbuilding Corporation
Limited (CSSC) and China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC). In
the low-speed market, Hudong Heavy Machinery Co., Ltd. and Dalian Marine
Diesel Co., Ltd. take a combined share of virtually 80%; in the
medium-speed market, Weichai Heavy Machinery Co., Ltd., CSSC Marine
Power Co., Ltd. and Hudong Heavy Machinery Co., Ltd. collectively
accounted for over 70%.

Currently, the global low-speed marine diesel engines are absolutely
dominated by MAN, Wartsila, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries; in
medium-speed engine market, Wartsila, MAN, and Caterpillar held a
combined market share of 86% (in 2017); high-speed engine brands include
MTU, Deutz, MWM, SACM, Pielstick, Ruston, and Paxman. In China, marine
diesel engines are mainly produced through patent licensing by MAN,
Wartsila and MTU.
