Integrated marine automation is a system used to monitor and control operations on a ship. This automation system increases the operational efficiency and safety of the marine vessel. Growing demand for digitalization in the maritime sector is anticipated to increase the growth of the global integrated marine automation market. The short-term impact was observed on the market due to COVID-19 impact. However, the market is expected to recover by the end of 2022.


COVID-19 Outbreak has Increased Demand for Digitalization in Maritime Sector Propelling Market Growth

The spread of coronavirus has negatively affected the overall marine sector. Huge revenue losses resulted in the first two quarters of 2020 due to lockdown and travel restrictions. The decreased demand for marine trades and travel caused the termination of new ship orders, negatively impacting the market. Thus, owing to the drop in new ship demand and decrease in manufacturing operations, the market of marine automation systems witnessed slow growth.

However, the COVID-19 outbreak has also led several companies in the marine industry to adopt digital technologies for remote operations such as fleet monitoring and control, fleet optimization, and others. For instance, shipping companies and OEMs are adopting artificial intelligence (AI) for intelligent scheduling, predictive maintenance, and real-time analytics for improving operational performance. Companies such as ABB, Honeywell International Inc., Hyundai Heavy Industries, Hoglund, and COSCO Shipyard Group witness decline in the orders for marine automation system during COVID-19. However, from 2022, rise in the demand was observed. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to speed up the shift towards digitalization post 2022.

Emergency of Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) to Fuel Growth

The ECDIS is a dedicated digital navigation computer. The ECDIS integrates electronic navigation software with modern navigational tools such as RADAR, GPS, ARPA, and others. It stores a set of Raster Charts or Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs) that display all the essential geographic information to complete a voyage. There is a rise in demand for the integration of ECDI systems in ships as these charts incorporate more data than conventional navigation tools. The system also automates necessary functions such as automatic route planning and monitoring, which reduces crew tasks. The surge in the adoption of ECDI systems in new and old ships is expected to fuel the market's growth.


Increased Development of Software Solutions to Optimize the Operational Activities to Boost Growth

Major players are focused on developing software solutions for automating ship operations. The growing development of software to ensure efficient ship operations, vessel traffic management, and ship health monitoring is anticipated to drive the market growth. 

  • For instance, in September 2020, a U.K.-based company, Windward launched a maritime software Maritime Artificial Intelligence Analytics (MAIA) 4.0 that can search, screen, and analyze dynamic maritime data and learn potential risks. This software is designed to determine voyage irregularities. 

Hence, the rising developments in software are anticipated to propel the market growth. 

Moreover, the growing adoption of technologies such as Big Data Analytics, the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and others are expected to augment the integrated marine automation system market growth during the forecast period.

Rising Investment for Incorporation of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Ships Expected to Fuel Market Growth

The shipbuilding and shipping companies are investing in the automation of vessels to save cost and increase efficiency of the ship operations. Moreover, increasing research and development of automated solutions by market players is expected to fuel the market growth.

  • In July 2020, Sea Machines Robotics, an autonomous vessel software provider, raised USD 15 million in funding to accelerate the deployment of its technologies in an unmanned ship and naval boats.

Growing maritime trade, emerging port infrastructure, and digitalization of ships &shipyards have increased the demand for integrated marine automation systems.


Increased Risk of Cyber Threats May Restrain Growth of the Market

The risk of a cyber-attack on a ship increases due to automation. The ships travel via routes mapped by the satellites during their voyages, increasing the risk of cyber threats. The rise in demand for connected ships, autonomous ships, has increased the adoption of integrated marine automation systems. The integration of automation systems is the first step toward automating complete vessels. However, this automation is predicted to make ships vulnerable to cyber-attacks. With growing online threats and attacks worldwide, the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has announced provisional guidelines to prevent cyber-attacks on ships’ systems.
