Global Marine Segment Applications and Products

We track global applications in 13 industry segments, but we place special emphasis on five segments. They are Agriculture, Construction, Industrial, Commercial Vehicles (MHV and LCV) and Power Generation. The other segments we track are:

  • Lawn & Garden
  • Marine Auxiliary
  • Marine Propulsion
  • Minivans and SUVs
  • Passenger Cars
  • Railway
  • Recreational Products

Our analysis of the global Marine segment includes quarterly updates of our databases, which are distributed to our clients in the form of extensive Update Bulletins. In addition to database update details, these quarterly Bulletins include five-year forecasts by region and industry segment.

We have four proprietary databases that have been built and updated over the last 41 years and that contain information on marine equipment:

  • EnginLink™, contains information on global engine production down to the engine model detail. It also contains five-year production forecasts by engine model.
  • OE Link™ contains information on global OEM production volume and forecast data, including model specifications.
  • PartsLink™ is a comprehensive resource providing in-service population data for engine-powered vehicles and equipment.
  • MarineLink™ tracks the production of pleasure boats and the manufacturers producing them. This comprehensive database contains annual boat volumes broken down by numerous engineering, performance and market parameters. MarineLink monitors the trends and developments in the boat builder industry, including model characteristics and detailed market analysis. Along with production volumes, this database also contains company and production profiles of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), OEM model descriptions and engine installation specifications.

Information on marine engines is contained in both EnginLink™ and OE Link™ as well as in the MarineLink™ database. Basically, special purpose marine propulsion engines are listed in EnginLink™ and general purpose engines below 5,000 hp that can be adapted for marine use are listed in OE Link™. You can find details on the way we treat these marine engines in the downloadable PDF titled, "Classifying Marine Engines" on this page.

We divide marine equipment into two segments: Marine Auxiliary and Marine Propulsion. Here is more information on these two segments.

The applications we track in the Marine Auxiliary Segment are:

  • Marine generators
  • Thrusters

The applications we track in the Marine Propulsion Segment include:

  • Commercial vessel engines
  • Outboard engines
  • Pleasure craft engines
