Analysis of the European Marine Generator Set Market

LONDON, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Analysis of the European Marine Generator Set Market

Investment in oilfield exploration activities drives demand

The European marine generator set market is mature, thus, has slow growth. Much of the shipbuilding activities have migrated to the Asian countries of South Korea, China, and Japan. Eurozone recession, combined with financing difficulties, is affecting demand for new vessels and, thus, gensets used in Europe. However, Europe has its competitive advantage in building advance ships. Moreover, oil and gas exploration and production activities and growth in renewable energy (especially offshore wind) are key driving factors for ships and vessel production and, thus, gensets in the European market. The study is from 2010 to 2017 and the base year is 2012.

Executive Summary

•The European marine generator set (genset) market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) ofX% from 2012 to 2017 in revenue and units are expected to increase from X in 2012 to X in 2017.
•Commercial vessels such as cargo ships, tankers, and tug boats accounted for more than half of the genset unit sales, followed by pleasure vessels such as ferries, yachts, and ships.
•Oil and gas exploration activities in the North Sea and the focus on manufacturing advance ships are driving the growth of the marine sector in Europe. However, Asia is the hub of shipbuilding with the bulk of business concentrated in China, South Korea, and Japan.
•Moreover, the Eurozone debt crisis and the ongoing recession are affecting demand for boats and ships and, hence, demand for gensets is low.
•The low power range generator set of rating below XkW is highly competitive. Regional distribution faces fierce competition from Turkish, Chinese, and Korean manufacturers.
•Medium to large power range gensets (X kW to X kW and above X MW) are having good growth and not much price erosion compared to the smaller power range.

CEO's Perspective

1. The European marine genset market is mature, however, slow growth is indicated.
2. Eurozone recession and financing difficulties are affecting demand for new vessels and, thus, gensets used.
3. Oil and gas exploration and production activities are the driving factors for ships and vessels, indirectly increasing genset demand.
4. Eighty-nine per cent volume of gensets sold in Europe is in the range ofX kW-X kW. However, the X kW-X kW and X MW-X MW both account for X% of the revenue.
5. Hybrid power and propulsion (use of lithium-ion batteries, renewable energy, and biofuel gensets) are gaining popularity.

Market Overview—Definitions

Marine Gensets
•A marine genset (including engine and alternator) is an auxiliary power plant that provides the electricity needed to operate ships. The typical marine generator, similar to all mobile generators, burns either diesel fuel or gasoline.
•This study includes all marine gensets installed on ships that have been built in Europe, irrespective of the ships' destination.

Definition by End User
Pleasure Vessels: Pleasure vessels include sailing and sports yachts, cruise vessels, ferries, catamarans, and ocean liners. They are used to carry people for sports or recreational purposes.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
