Maritime surveillance and intervention systems are used to optimize maritime security. The MSI comprises various components such as combat management systems, detectors, surveillance, tracking system, geographic information system (GIS), and others. They are used to perform reconnaissance operations. The advanced surveillance and intervention solutions are used to offer help in securing merchant vessels, coastal lines, ports, and critical infrastructure facilities. The rising sea traffic due to an expansion in payload vessels for transportation simultaneously sees increments in oceanic crimes.

The MSI can provide protection solutions against various seaway crimes, such as drug trafficking, human trafficking, illegal immigration, illicit fishing, piercing, smuggling, and others. Therefore, the growing deployment of advanced surveillance systems and supportive regulatory intervention will fortify the country's ocean security. Moreover, the growing geopolitical tensions and disputes among neighboring countries in high growth regions would showcase an increase in global maritime surveillance and intervention market growth during the forecast period.


COVID-19 had a Positive Impact on Maritime Surveillance Due to Increased Adoption of UAV Surveillance Activities

The outbreak of coronavirus had a large impact on the maritime industry. The lockdown had temporarily stopped many marine operations such as transportation, fishing, and oil and gas processing, to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Thus, to monitor the coastline, the coastguards used unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to perform maritime surveillance operations remotely. If any lockdown violators were detected, the coastline law enforcement team took strict action against them for breaking the regulations. Therefore, the demand for maritime surveillance UAVs was increased to enhance the security and safety of the coastline.


Rising Adoption of Robotic Technology to Enhance Maritime Surveillance Capabilities during the Forecast Period

The emerging trend towards the adoption of robotic technology has increased the development of advanced autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and underwater intervention vehicles. These robotic vehicles take surveillance capabilities to the next level. These solutions consist of advanced electronic components such as high-quality cameras, advanced sensors, laser profilers, and so on.

For instance, Kongsberg Gruppen ASA designed autonomous underwater vehicles, Hugin and its other updated version called Hugin superior. This system can be used in commercial as well as defense applications. In the defense sector, it is used for applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), rapid environmental assessment, and mine countermeasures.

Growing Focus on Strengthening Maritime Safety and Security to Fuel Demand for Maritime surveillance and Intervention Solution

The maritime traffic is on the ascent, with growing ocean trade across the world. Maritime trade is the most established and highly preferred form of cargo import and export, as it can carry heavyweight goods. The rising seaway transportation has expanded the presence of various trading vessels in the sea, which has simultaneously increased the rate of ocean crimes around the world. This has prompted the adoption of MSI solutions to prevent ocean criminal activities such as illegal immigration, piracy, smuggling, and others. Besides, developing international pressure and terrorist activities have fortified the selection of MSI to reinforce the country's oceanic wellbeing and security. These are the development factors responsible for the growth of the Marine Surveillance and Intervention market.

Development of Upgraded Maritime surveillance and Intervention Aircraft to Deliver Optimized Surveillance and Intervention Facilities to Aid Growth

Trend-setting innovation-based frameworks, such as thermal imaging, automatic identification system, satellite radar, underwater robotic system, and long-range identification and tracking devices, are utilized for improving the capacities of sea reconnaissance and security activity. In this way, the interest in groundbreaking marine surveillance and intervention aircraft is expanding, which has coordinated the reconnaissance frameworks. These airplanes are uncommonly intended to screen sea development. If the sensor framework recognizes any unlawful movement, it will be straightforwardly sent to the oceanic law implementation group to deal with the circumstance further. For instance, the sea surveillance airplane fabricated by Saab AB is utilized for a variety of operations, such as safeguarding, illicit immigration control, search and rescue operations, coastline surveillance, and economic zone monitoring.


Detection of Stealth Vessels and Constant Danger of Digital Assault to Hamper Growth

With developing technology, the development of stealth vessels is likewise expanding. The stealth vessels are difficult to detect with low generation monitoring system technology. So, there is a need to build an advanced surveillance solution. To develop an advanced system, a high initial cost is necessary, and that is the major challenge for the original equipment manufacturers. Moreover, the growing risk of cyber-attack inferred from changing war nature and marine territorial disputes among neighboring countries is another challenge that is hampering the growth of the market during the figure time frame.
