“As the global shipbuilding industry recovers from a downward turn in the past and retrofit installations continue to move on an upward swing, manufacturers of marine fin stabilizers should be looking at a period of sustained demand,” says FMI analyst. “Growing efforts of vessel operators to increase crew and enhance safety and comfort of passengers will also work to the advantage of the manufacturers.” 

Rise in Retrofit Installations to be a Prominent Trend

First fit installations of marine fin stabilizers has always led the market, owing to passenger safety & comfort becoming a prerequisite. Although marine fin stabilizers have been in the market for almost 90 years, they were not widely adopted until the 2000s. They are installed on a variety of ships like passenger vessels, navy vessels and merchant vessels, but the rise in cruise ship and luxury yacht orders has resulted in increased demand for marine fin stabilizers. As a large proportion of older merchant ships and passenger vessels, still exist without marine fin stabilizers, operators have been opting to retrofit to upgrade safety measures and comfort levels.

Hence, the growing age of old vessels and the high number of vessels without stabilization systems is expected to drive retrofit installations in the marine fin stabilizer market.
