The global marine diesel engine market share can be segmented on the basis of product, application, and region. By product, low speed (two-stroke) and high speed (four-stroke) diesel engines are the major segments. Inland waterways vessels, commercial vessels, and offshore support vessels are the key applications.

The inland waterways vessels application segment is likely to witness significant gains over the forecast period. Rising demand in several regions such as Europe, Africa and South America has led to an increase in production. Majority of these vessels are manufactured in Asia Pacific owing to low labor and manufacturing cost. However, high initial cost is anticipated to hinder the demand over the forecast period. Commercial vessels are expected to be the fastest growing application segment over the next seven years.
