ANALYSIS: COVID-19 Impact On The Marine Gas Turbine Market Limited--So Far

An examination of the marine gas turbine market by Forecast International suggests that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is less than first feared. So far, a combination of allowances made for strategically-essential industries, the fundamental structure of the shipbuilding industry, flexibility in scheduling and astute planning by the major marine turbine companies have kept disruption to a minimum. However, Senior Analyst for Industrial and Marine Gas Turbines, Stuart Slade, points out that continuance of this situation cannot be guaranteed. "There is a growing body of opinion that the infectiousness of COVID-19 may result in it becoming an established feature of the 'disease landscape'. It may never go away completely and the marine gas turbine industry may have to learn to live with it."

The study by Forecast International projects that 640 marine gas turbine machines will be produced during the period 2020-2029. This represents a decline of 6.6 percent from the total projected in last year's edition of this market analysis. These engines have a total value of $5,784.33 billion, a decrease of 3.3 percent from the equivalent total last year. Slade suggests that the major reason for this decline is the end of numerous shipbuilding programs at a time when their replacements in the shipyards are not yet fully defined.

While problems caused by the COVID pandemic have been contained in the short term, Slade sees a longer-term problem emerging. The marine gas turbine industry and its clients have coped with the maintenance and support side of its operations partly by running down established stockpiles of components and partly by deferring scheduled maintenance for which parts were scarce or unavailable. The latter, in particular, can only be done for so long and such deferred work is likely to escalate in cost and extent. Thus, the impact of COVID-19 on the marine gas turbine industry may not be over soon.

Between them, General Electric (including IHI), Rolls-Royce and Zorya-Mashproekt account for 96 percent of the marine gas turbines to be produced and 90 percent of the value of gas turbine production during the forecast period. The worldwide focus on marine gas turbines has centered on General Electric Co (USA) and Rolls Royce, but Zorya-Mashproekt continues to offer marine gas turbines in the output range of 4,500 36,300 hp for Russian, Ukrainian, Indian, and Vietnamese vessels.
