The global integrated marine automation system market grew from $4.37 billion in 2022 to $4.81 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.1%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The integrated marine automation system market is expected to grow to $6.8 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 9.0%.
The integrated marine automation system market includes revenues earned by entities by power management systems, vessel management systems, process control, and safety systems.The market value includes the value of related goods sold by the service provider or included within the service offering.
Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.
An integrated marine automation system entails a variety of control systems, from small stand-alone alarm systems to fully integrated alarm and control systems.These systems are composed of various hardware and software components that capture, process, store, transmit, and present information about the vessel’s system.
The system’s essential quality is its ability to continuously provide trusted information to control personnel, allowing for quick and appropriate responses. The integrated marine automation system is used to monitor and control operations on a ship.
Europe was the largest region in the integrated marine automation system market in 2022. The regions covered in the integrated marine automation system market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.
The main types of autonomy in integrated marine automation are partial automation, remotely-operated, and autonomous.Partial automation refers to propulsion systems, power management systems, alarm and management systems, and others that are being demanded by ship operators that take over longitudinal and lateral control, but the driver must permanently monitor the system and be prepared to take over control at any time.
The different systems include power management systems, vessel management systems, process control systems, and safety systems. The various ship types include commercial, defense, and unmanned that are used by the end users, such as original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and aftermarket.
Increasing marine accidents are expected to propel the growth of the integrated marine automation system market going forward.Ocean economic activities consist of multiple activities, from transporting goods from one place to another, running cruise ships, or carrying passengers.
Due to critical ocean weather conditions, there is a possibility that a mishap might occur with the ships, resulting in an accident or casualties.The most common causes of marine disasters are collisions, grounding, stranding, heavy weather, explosions, or fire.
These disasters can be avoided with the assistance of an integrated marine automation system, which provides critical information on the system for the safe and efficient operation of ship machinery and auxiliary systems.For instance, according to a Marine Accident Recommendations and Statistics report published by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch in 2021, the number of marine casualties and marine incidents reported was 1,217 in 2020, up from 1,090 in 2019, showing an increase of 11%.
Therefore, the rising number of marine accidents is driving the demand for an integrated marine automation system market.
Technological advancements are the key trend gaining popularity in the integrated marine automation system market.The market is witnessing an increase in control system software developed on AI-based technologies.
The control systems provide seamless control integration through mathematical modeling and design of various marine operations.For instance, in October 2021, ABB, a Finland-based automation company, launched a C-CAM automation solution for merchant marine vessels.
This C-CAM is a user-friendly and handy solution that automates and integrates control, alarm, and monitoring of critical systems on board, offering access to system data through mobile devices.The automation solution is based on artificial intelligence and is applicable to vessel systems, power management, cargo control, and tank gauging.
It improves efficiency and safety by allowing faster troubleshooting and maintenance and improving situational awareness.
In December 2020, Rolls-Royce, a British aero-engine manufacturing company, acquired Servowatch Systems.The acquisition would help Rolls Royce to expand its portfolio in the fields of ship automation.
Servowatch System is a Uk-based supplier of integrated marine automation solutions for commercial vessels and navies.
The countries covered in the integrated marine automation system market report are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, USA.
