Connected ships enable interconnection between various systems and subsystems of ships to provide a common operating picture to ship operators and shipping companies to help them organize and operate their ship fleets in an efficient manner. Connected ships are the evolution of the ship automation solutions as they integrate disparate systems of ships to onshore platforms to facilitate effective management of ship fleets. These ships use different techniques of Big Data analytics for monitoring their performance. The connected ship market is projected to grow from USD 5.92 billion in 2018 to USD 7.19 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 3.95% from 2018 to 2023.
A number of technological advancements such as improved connectivity of ships with onshore stations and automation of various processes of the marine industry to reduce human errors as well as enhance the safety and increase the operational efficiency of ships are taking place across the globe. The introduction of e-navigation by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in the marine industry has led to the development of the concept of connected ships.
Some of the key players operating in the connected ship market include Northrop Grumman (US), General Electric (US), Wartsila (Finland), Kongsberg Grumman (Norway), and Marlink (Norway). These players have been focusing on securing contracts from shipyards and shipbuilding companies across the globe to strengthen their position in the connected ship market. These companies are also investing increasingly in R&D activities to increase their shares in the connected ship market.
