Maritime is the most important mode of trade and commerce in Malaysia with approximately 95% of the overall trade being conducted through waterways. As the trade between Malaysia and other nations in the Asia-Pacific region increases, the marine and trade industries are expected to generate significant demand for new vessels.
According to 6Wresearch, Malaysia Marine Engine market revenues are projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during 2018-24. The shipping and maritime industry of Malaysia is heavily dependent on oil trade and transportation with oil tankers constituting more than 30% of the Malaysian fleet of ships. Strengthening of oil industry, government initiatives such as SBSR (Shipbuilding and Ship Repair) strategic plan 2020, and tax exemption schemes would help in increasing the demand for marine engines over the coming years in Malaysia.
