Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) Market | Asia Pacific and European regions are expected to lead the market growth

The Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2016 to 2025.

Bio-fouling has a tendency to impose significant operational inability and safety penalties on the marine fleet. Seawater systems in ships are used to supply fire suppression, cooling and heat exchange water. These systems are prone to severe fouling pressure. Due to their complexity in structural design, many areas of the systems are inaccessible for maintenance. For example, sea chests are a niche area for the settlement and growth of a variety of bio-fouling organisms. It is rather difficult to control and protect these areas with a conventional system, such as anti-coating and primer coatings.

Access Sample:

In vessel operations, biofouling has the potential to cause blockage of essential pipe network systems, degrade the structural integrity of pipework systems and fittings. This leads to changes in systems intake patterns, corrosion of essential structures, and irregular and unscheduled maintenance. Untimely maintenance often involves more time and more capital expenditure. The operational problem only becomes apparent after months of colonization of marine growth. This is when the fouling organisms have grown large enough to notice the obstruction. HVAC systems, heat exchangers and other systems are often subject to heavy cooling/heating loads when their internal seawater cooling systems are clogged by marine growth.

This indicates that the system must be free from marine growth. Marine growth prevention is often preferred over marine growth removal techniques as MGR techniques do not have reach to the intrinsic arrangement of the systems. From an environmental point of view, vessels/ships/barges are one of the primary vectors for the transfer of non-indigenous (often considered exotic/rare species) species of pests to the marine environment. Vessels internal seawater systems have the potential to transfer non-indigenous and indigenous organisms between countries across oceanic borders, which has to be avoided. The root cause of marine growth must, therefore, be targeted for elimination. MGPS services perform marine growth elimination effectively. The market is therefore expected to grow at a healthy rate for the forecast period.

Some of the major consequences of marine growth and marine fouling is that they block and narrow the passage of cooling water in the marine asset systems. This results in impaired heat transfer systems, overheating of several water-cooled machineries, increased corrosion rate and thinning of pipes and reduced efficiency in terms of speed & time loss.

The key MGPS equipment’s producers, developers, suppliers/dealers and service providers are, but not limited to: Cathodic Marine Engineering Pte. Ltd., Deepwater Corrosion Services, Inc., Cathelco, Titanium Tantulum Products Ltd., MME Group, Marine Cathodic Protection Systems.

Key Trends:

  • MGPS systems are conceptualized as a source of eliminating root cause of marine growth
  • Asia Pacific and European regions are expected to lead the MGPS market growth in the coming years
