The integrated marine automation system is projected to grow from USD 4.9 billion in 2020 to USD 7.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 10.0% from 2020 to 2025. Some of the major factors driving this market include the increasing global sea trade, improving marine navigational safety resulting in lesser accidents, and growing maritime tourism. The demand for new ships and the retrofitting of existing ships with advanced technologies are expected to grow with increased trade activities. New defense and commercial vessels are equipped with advanced systems for improved safety and efficiency.
Automation systems act as important risk management tools as they help in the detection of individual component failures in a ship to ensure safety. According to the report published by Sea Europe in 2018, the marine sector witnessed growth in the number of delivery of ships, boats, and submarines since 2011. However, in 2016, the shipbuilding industry reported a decline in orders for new ships due to the oversupply of tankers, container ships, and bulkers. Nonetheless, the growth in maritime tourism resulted in an upsurge in sales of passenger ships and cruises in the same year. Thus, the rise in the number of commercial vessels is one of the most significant factors driving the integrated marine automation system market.
