Digital Technologies

Effective real-time information exchange across groups is essential for the maritime sector. The information and communication technology that links all the participants and permits the efficient flow of information, intelligence, and communications is the foundation of the global naval network. Advanced vessel traffic services (VTS), which are commonly deployed by major ports, waterways, and maritime authorities, are also used for incident management and maritime rescue coordination on a large scale. Integrated traffic management systems and solutions provide high performance and dependable services to meet the constantly evolving maritime safety regulations. Incident detection is crucial in the maritime industry. Surveillance equipment such as radar, sonar, AIS, and closed-circuit television (CCTV) is required to provide operators with real-time situational awareness. Therefore, there is a high demand for integrated solutions that would enable data analysis to stop maritime terrorism and piracy, which is creating significant opportunities for the maritime information market growth.

Digital technologies are being used increasingly in maritime operations, processes, and business models to boost efficiency and security and reduce costs. Digital transformation has become essential for the long-term profitability and competitive advantage of any company. Businesses worldwide are embracing digitization to enhance their internal operations and boost productivity and revenues. The marine industry is also going through a paradigm shift due to changing business models, technology adoption, cost structures, and increased competition. The creation of new business models, digitalization of fundamental processes, and application of analytics for improved decision-making are among the significant aspects of the digital transformation of the maritime sector. Businesses employ maritime information to improve daily activities such as freight routing, cargo handling, port operations, vessel deployment, and empty repositioning. Process improvement, high operational effectiveness, cost cutting, and human error minimization are driving the demand for digital solutions in the global maritime sector. As a result, the demand for digital solutions, such as marine information, is likely to surge in the global maritime sector in the coming years.

The COVID-19 outbreak dramatically impacted the global economy in early 2020, and the crisis has hampered business activities in maritime industries. The pandemic caused delays in the flow, storage, and transit of commodities, which negatively impacted the expansion of the logistics & transportation sectors in 2020. The outbreak also disrupted the market player’s competitiveness, labor availability, and economic expansion. During the pandemic, some of the biggest logistical shipping contractors ceased their businesses due to restrictions on foreign trade activities, ship entry and exit, cargo backlogs, and quarantine requirements. As a result, the shipping industry in APAC reduced the need for maritime information systems in the first two quarters of 2020 and witnessed moderate demand in the last two quarters of 2020.
