Global Passenger Ships Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A passenger ship is a merchant ship that carries passengers on voyages for pleasure or transportation. The importance of Passenger Ships is that they provide a way for people to travel from one place to another without having to use an airplane.

Conventional Passenger Ships:

Conventional passenger ships are those used for transporting passengers and goods. They are mainly cargo vessels or cruise ships that have been converted to passenger use. Some conventional passenger ships, such as the SS Norway, were purpose-built as floating hotels and restaurants.

High-Speed Passenger Ships:

High-speed passenger ships are large, fast and luxury vessels that link major ports with destinations across the globe. They are used to transport passengers and their luggage between two points with relatively short travel times.

Application Insights:

The transportation segment dominated the market in 2017 and is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for passenger ships for tourism purposes as well as for commercial purposes. Increasing air traffic across various regions coupled with rising number of cruise passengers has led to increased need for passenger ships in this application segment.

Entertainment was the second largest application segment accounted for 24% share of the total revenue in 2017 due to growing trend towards luxurious river cruising vacations that offer an immersive experience along with activities such as fine dining, live music, spa treatments, and enrichment classes. Growing popularity among millennials has paved way new trends such as floating cities where entire families can spend a night on vacation at once while traveling by cruise ship or luxury liner. These trends are expected to drive growth over the forecast period especially during summer season when most popular destinations receive millions of tourists every year from all around world resulting into huge demand which will positively impact industry growth during upcoming years.

Regional Analysis:

Europe dominated the global market in terms of revenue with a share of over 40.0% in 2017 owing to the presence of major ports including Southampton, Rotterdam, and Le Havre. Europe is home to several cruise ship destinations such as France, Italy, Croatia, Norway among others that are popular tourist destinations renowned for their beauty and historical significance.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period from 2018 to 2030 due to increasing passenger traffic on account rising disposable income especially in China and India coupled with growing tourism industry resulting from these factors will drive demand for passenger ships across this region. Furthermore growing travel & tourism sector along with developing infrastructure will also contribute towards regional market growth over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for cruise holidays: The global cruise industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the period 2016-2020. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for cruise holidays, especially from emerging markets such as China and India.
  • Rise in disposable income: The rise in disposable income has led to an increase in spending on luxury items, including cruises. In addition, the number of affluent consumers is also rising, which is contributing to the growth of the passenger ships market.
  • Proliferation of low-cost carriers: Low-cost carriers (LCCs) have revolutionized air travel by making it more affordable for people across different economic segments. This has led to an increase in demand for cruises as well, as they offer a similar cost advantage over traditional vacations packages that include airfare and hotel stay together.
