A marine lubrication system is an integral part of the vessel’s engine system as it assists the smooth and efficient operation of the engine. The marine vessels experience extreme environments and hence the installed machinery and equipments are desired to be durable. This differentiates between the marine lubrication systems and the general lubrication systems. An efficient marine lubrication system helps in maintaining the engine temperature which further maintains the oil film thickness and ensures smooth functioning of the engine. Though being costly, an efficient marine lubricating system downsizes the runtime costs of the vessel. It is estimated that almost 15% of energy generated in the engine is lost due to friction. Preventing this can result in significant amount of savings for the players involved in the shipping business. Typically, a marine lubrication system is made up of cooler, pumps, filters, cylinder lubrication box, cylinder lubricating oil service tank, among others.
Technically, a lubricating oil should not be circulated for more than 15 times in an hour. Hence, a higher quality of lubricating oil along with the marine lubrication system are preferred among the ship builders and marine engine manufacturers.
Marine Lubrication System Market: Dynamics
The global marine lubrication system is estimated to grow in tandem with the global shipbuilding and maintenance industry. With majority of manufacturers, especially in emerging economies such as China and India, are focusing on large scale production and export, the shipping industry is poised to grow. As per assessment, over 80% and 70% of the international trade in terms of volume and value respectively is handled by the sea ports. The marine trade is anticipated to maintain its stronghold in the market and hence the market for marine lubrication system will expand in line with the same.
Environmental regulations surrounding several lubricants forces the manufacturers to design the marine lubrication systems that are compatible with the environmentally acceptable lubricants. Hence, it has been noted that the manufacturers are constantly engaged in research, development and commercialization of marine lubrication system. Being a niche market, the existing players largely dominate the marine lubrication system market. However, driven by innovation, the entry for newer players is estimated to be moderate over the forecast period.
