How Will The Demand From Defense Sector Impact Marine Communication Market?

The Coast Guard and the Army Corps of Engineers are pioneering the future of riverine, intra-coastal, and coastal navigation. To increase coastal safety and security, the Coast Guard Office of Navigation Systems and Coast Guard Research and Development Center are working with the Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center.

Defense sectors in many countries are continuously focusing on the improvement of navigation and communication for autonomous and continuous broadcast systems that exchange safety and security information between participating vessels and shore stations.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The effects of the coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak will extend well beyond health and the threat to human lives. There are already signs that the virus will significantly impact international trade and the shipping industry.

The epidemic has caused the shipping and maritime industry to face the worst circumstances as the workforce in these sectors has been shut down for the safety and prevention of the escalation of COVID-19. The market disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in 5%-7% Year on Year (YoY) decrease in annual maritime communication equipment’s in 2020.

However, amid the pandemic, various governments globally has continued to focus on developing and innovating marine communication technologies by launching advanced marine communication satellites for faster and reliable data transfer between shores and ships. For instance, on September 2020, China has launched its 3rd maritime satellite into space to carry out high-precision maritime environment monitoring. Thus, the continued innovation in maritime communication technologies has resulted in significant growth in the market.

Increasing Demand for VHF-based Data Exchange System

The VHF-based Data Exchange System (VDES) provides a robust and globally standard communication system for e-navigation. It supports the safety and efficiency of ship and shore operations. The reduced cost of deployment and improved communication is creating demand in various countries around the globe.

Moreover, marine electronic vendors are also focusing on offering cost-effective satellite-based communication. For instance, EGNOS, a European satellite-based augmentation service (SBAS), provides correction to GPS signals to increase the accuracy of position information. Thus, the demand for satellite-based communication system is driving the demand, and is fuelling the global marine communication market.
