Maritime Satellite Communication Market Insights:

The maritime satellite communications market is growing considerably around the maritime industry. It is a platform for two-way voice communication for users in remote locations or frequent travelers between ship and coast stations. It is crucial for all vessels and ships on water to sustain appropriate maritime communicationsand ensure smooth facilitation of trade and other services. Transfer of status and data of vessels back and forth reduces error marginsand keepsbeneficial ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship communication. The role of satellite communication is transforming from voice calls to further user-oriented data services, such as tracking, entertainment, and monitoring services.In addition, this platform is used for diverse applications including disaster management, DTH broadcasting, navigation, and weather forecasting. 

Impact of COVID-19 on Maritime Satellite Communication Market:

  • The widespread economic shutdowns due to pandemic caused unprecedented break to the cruise sector along with considerable short-term disruption caused by collapsing oil prices.
  • Cruise ships and vessels are repatriating crew members. However, after the pandemic they would require to transport goods, acquire crew, and perform essential services.
  • Maritime end-users are looking for ways to safely operate in the current situation as well as post pandemic; hence, the demand for connectivity may continue to increase on a per-vessel basis.
  • Regulatory pressure on crew welfare and communications is the major factor pushing maritime operators to install new generation satellite communication systems on their vessels.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Need of enhanced data communication in the maritime industry for improved on-board security & surveillance, operation efficiency, and employee/passenger welfare majorly drives the maritime satellite communication market. In addition, less expensive satellite communication technology introductions by key players drives the market by attracting end-users, which were unable to access satellite communication services earlier. In addition, extensive applications/benefits of satellite communication systems in maritime industry is leading to growing adoption of this systems. However, lack of awareness among end users about these technologies and the need of expensive infrastructure hampers growth of the market. On the contrary, growing adaptation or implementation of an integrated management system and rise of the cloud-based satellite communication platform providers are key opportunities for the market growth in next few years.

The global maritime satellite communication market trends are as follows:

Adoption of e-navigation to flourish the market

E-navigation strategy is developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to maintain better communication between ship-to-shore and ship-to-ship. It is facilitating greater data and information exchange between ships. It reduces human error and failure margins by employing a superior functioning system that consist of enriched electronics, navigational tools, and satellite communication systems.

E-navigation systems that are widely being used in the maritime industry includes Automatic Identification System (AIS), Long Range Identification and Tracking Systems (LRIT), Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS), Automatic Radar Plotting Aids (ARPA), Integrated Navigation Systems (INS), Integrated Bridge System (IBS), and Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS).

Increase in adoption of maritime satellite communication systems for autonomous ships

Autonomous ships are aimed at making ships self-drivento increase productivity and competency, thus allowing smooth functioning of tasks. It minimizes human errors and reduces manpower required for operations on ships.

Presently, these types of mostly unmanned ships are being experimented,which areequipped with several upgraded technologies such as tracking systems, a positioning system for being informed about different routes, advanced sensors to avoid obstacles, and control systems to operate these ships from the teams at the shore if needed. These ships are constantly connected with the onshore teams and hence, this trend of autonomous ships fuels growth of maritime satellite communication market.
