Marine Diesel Engine
is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel that has been injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the high temperature which a gas achieves when greatly compressed in marine ship. As the core of the ship equipment, according to their effects, marine diesel engine can be divided to host and auxiliary engines. The host engine is for the ship's propulsion, the effects of auxiliary engine are to drive a generator, an air compressor or a water pump.
Marine diesel engine is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel that has been injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the high temperature which a gas achieves when greatly compressed in marine ship.
The marine diesel engine is highly concentrated, the production of top sixteen manufacturer account 90% of global production, and high-end products mainly come from China and Korea.
In the world wide, the plants of major manufactures mainly distribute in China and Korea, like Wartsila, has a number of plants around the world, particularly in China and Korea, taking a leading share in these areas.
China is also the largest consumer of marine diesel engine. In 2015, the consumption of marine diesel engine is about 15814K KW in China; its proportion of total global consumption exceeds 39%. China has witnessed a major chunk of the consumption of marine diesel engine in the Asia Pacific region.
The import and export business of this industry is relatively frequent. The main reason lays in that major manufacturers is highly concentrated in several country.
This industry is affected by the economy and policy, so it’s important to put an eye to economic indexes and leaders’ prefer. With the global economic recovery, more and more countries focus on marine ship especially in underdevelopment regions that have fast economic growth and potentially huge marine ship consumption, the need of marine diesel engine will increase.
