Global Rudder Systems Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A rudder system is a mechanism used to steer a ship, boat, or other watercraft. The rudder system typically consists of one or more rudders mounted at the stern of the vessel and controlled by cables or hydraulic lines. The primary purpose of a rudder system is to provide lateral control for the vessel, allowing it to be steered in different directions.

Intelligent Monitoring System:

Intelligent monitoring system is a tool that helps to monitor the health and efficiency of an aircraft's critical systems such as hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical. It also provides information about the performance of each component used in flight. The IMS offers various benefits such as reduced maintenance cost due to early failure detection, increased reliability & safety by providing comprehensive data on components' behavior under pressure or temperature etc., which are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Twisted Leading Edge Rudders:

Leading edge rudders are a type of hydrofoil structure that is used in the design of ship or boat rudders. The shape of these hydrofoils generates minimum resistance to the water and hence provides high efficiency in terms of fuel consumption. Leading edge rudders are widely used as an alternative to conventional vertical and horizontal surfaces for improving steering characteristics, such as turning radius at low/medium speeds, maneuverability at high speeds, etc.

Application Insights:

Container ships were the largest application segment and accounted for a volume share of over 50.0% in 2017. Container ships are widely used for short sea transport between various ports across the world, thus making them highly maneuverable vessels. Containers have to be stowed securely while ensuring ease of access during unloading operations at both ends of a ship, which makes them susceptible to rollover accidents when operated by unskilled crew members or operating with inadequate equipment on board such as improper load securing procedures or insufficient number of crew members.

The bulk vessel segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to their ability to operate in waters where container ships cannot due largelyto their size and deadweight capacity that enables them carry more cargo per voyage than other types of vessels can do.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest regional market over the forecast period owing to growing trade activities across various sectors. Increasing maritime transport in this region is anticipated to fuel product demand, especially for container and bulk vessels. The increasing number of shipbuilding projects in China, India, South Korea and Japan are also projected to have a positive impact on industry growth over the next eight years.

Europe accounted for more than 25% of global revenue share in 2017 owing to high adoption rate of advanced rudders coupled with stringent regulations regarding water pollution by ships operating without intelligent systems installed.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for data-driven decision making across enterprises
  • Rudder Systems’ ability to provide actionable insights in real time
  • Growing popularity of cloud-based solutions
  • Rudder Systems’ strong partnerships with leading technology providers
  • The company’s focus on innovation and customer satisfaction
