Growth in the global marine pumps market continues to pick up pace, driven by strict marine emission standards and a focus on energy efficient, high performance, advanced marine pumps that can operate in challenging conditions. Increased international trade volumes and booming maritime tourism are boosting demand for new ships and aiding revenue growth.
Manufacturers must focus on competitive pricing, innovation and technology developments to sustain growth in a mature, highly consolidated ecosystem.
“Most end users are reducing capital expenditure investment in new equipment and are more likely to spend on refurbishing or servicing their installed pumps,” said Frost & Sullivan Industrial Automation & Process Control Research Analyst, Anand M. Gnanamoorthy. “To gain a competitive edge, maritime pump manufacturers should offer aftersales service packages such as integrated pump system bundles.”
