IMO 2050 Setting sail towards decarbonisation

Report summary

This insight presents our base case outlook for marine fuels to 2050 and explores some of the emerging issues as the International Maritime Organisation seeks to decarbonise international shipping. Oil bunkers is expected to peak in 2025 at nearly 5.4 million b/d. Marine LNG is the main source of market growth during the next decade, displacing 0.6 million b/d of oil bunkers by 2030. The global marine fuel market is expected to start declining in the early 2030s as improving fuel efficiency erodes demand despite rising global trade. Growth in marine LNG then slows post-2040 as synthetic e-fuels become more widespread, supported by the increasing availability of green hydrogen capacity.
