The growing demand for helideck monitoring systems owing to exceptional weather information and accurate data analysis is projected to fuel the market in the forthcoming years. Helideck monitoring is a system that offers precise information about weather and helideck motion during helicopter landing and take-offs. The system helps in improving passenger and flight safety by monitoring the extreme weather condition of the helicopter ports. The system can interface with various weather sensors such as wind direction, wind speed, QFE/QNH Barometric, humidity, temperature sensors, cloud height, and visibility motion. It has numerous applications in the marine and oil and gas industries. These factors are likely to propel the demand for such advanced systems around the world.

Oil and Gas Industry is Facing Unprecedented Challenges due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 virus outbreak has majorly impacted the helicopter industry, resulting in decline production, delayed product deliveries, contracts on hold, and others. Helicopter OEMs are expected to deliver 25% fewer helicopters due to disrupted supply chains, production halt, and financial crisis. Offshore-equipped and configured support helicopters suffered a lot due to GDP contraction, reduced contracts, and investments. According to IBA Group Ltd., the future projections reveal a cutdown of 20-25% in the oil and gas industry. In the second quarter of 2020, Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that global liquid fuel production averaged 91.8 million b/d, which was in the second quarter of 2020, down 8.6 million b/d year over year. All these downturns are likely to have a negative impact on the market in the forthcoming years.

Introduction of innovative eVTOL Technology to Propel the Market Growth Globally

In recent years, the helicopter industry is witnessing strong growth due to increasing demand for numerous applications such as oil & gas and marine. The rise in the research and development capabilities by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the eVTOL concept is likely to showcase significant growth in the near future. eVTOL provides features such as vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability, automation of controls, and electrification of lift and thrusts. It provides a low noise level, high safety, reduced weight, and low operating costs.

With the growing use of electric propulsion, the latest technology emerged as user-friendly, faster, reliable, and highly efficient for overall operation. Development of compatible software for helideck monitoring systems that provide weather information such as wind speed and direction, temperature, and cloud data. Recently, Observator Group launched the OIC-2020 helideck monitoring system HMS 2.0 that has reduced cost, compact design, and less cabling during installation.


Rising Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration Activities to Drive the Market

Growing investments in oil and gas exploration and production in countries such as the U.S., Canada, Saudi Arabia, China are creating a high demand for offshore helicopters. As per the data shown by Rystad Energy, global offshore investments were nearly USD 155 billion. Increasing offshore oil and gas exploration projects and rising investments from countries in the Middle East drive the growth of the market. According to World Oil’s survey, global offshore drilling will rise by 4.7% with an increase in every region. In 2019, the U.S. became the largest crude oil producer by surpassing Russia.

Escalating use of Ships and Vessels to Boost Demand for Helideck Monitoring Systems

Nowadays, offshore vessels and rigs are completely dependent on helicopters for crew and equipment transportation to and from work. An increasing number of ships, growing investments in naval projects, and rising global trade through sea are factors boosting the helideck monitoring system market growth. The helideck monitoring system provides real-time information for helicopter pilots that helped in reducing the risks of potential hazards in offshore operations. Furthermore, stringent safety norms to avoid accidents may lead to improved demand for monitoring systems.  


Concerns about Cyber Attacks to Hamper Market Growth

The helideck monitoring system monitors air temperature and barometric pressure, wind speed and direction, vertical velocity, and helideck attitude. The helideck report includes motion data, meteorological data, vessel information, and logistic data useful for helicopter operations. Sensors are interfaced with meteorological software to analyze data from hardware systems.

In the last few years, the four biggest maritime shipping companies APM-Maersk, Mediterranean Shipping Company, COSCO, and CMA CGM suffered security threats. The malware lands on the internal IT network of the ship and target shore-based systems. Thus, the digitalization of ships and vessels can help receive information through software leading to cyber-attacks and subsequently hindering safety and security.
