Maritime Safety System Market

Thales Group (France) and Smiths Group (UK) are leading players in Maritime Safety System Market

Maritime safety helps to protect ports and provides coastal surveillance technologies and services to safeguard the interest of a nation and its people against various maritime threats. Maritime safety has become crucial due to the increasing number of maritime threats, piracy, sabotage, unlawful acts, as well as the increasing importance of international trade by sea. Traditionally, maritime safety only involved activities, such as patrol by coast guards and sea marshals, and semaphore techniques. However, technological proliferation over the last couple of decades has brought in the integration of advanced technologies, such as radio and satellite communication systems, innovative detection techniques, and real-time onshore and underwater surveillance.

The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) triggered a global health and economic crisis with wide-ranging implications for maritime transport and trade. Restrictions introduced in response to the pandemic have caused disruptions, affecting ports, shipping, and supply chains. Many industries faced challenges along their supply chain. Some of these challenges were raw material shortages, lead-time issues, ocean blank sailings, port closures, reduced working hours at ports, equipment and labor shortages, and transport capacity constraints. These obstacles undermine the smooth movement of trade flows and supply chain operations and significantly erode transport services. Governments have both flag and port states, which have issued circulars and other forms of communication on COVID-19. The maritime sector in various countries across different regions has issued several port marine circulars related to COVID-19. After initially announcing that crew changes were suspended, following feedback from the industry and unions, it has established a prescribed process, considering whether the seafarer has served the maximum time on board and no further extension of the employment contract is granted by the flag state.

The long-term impact of the pandemic is yet to be fully understood. All indicators are pointing to significant immediate challenges for the maritime sector. These differ depending on the maritime transport segment (e.g., container, bulk, reefer, tanker). These indicators vary by region, level of development, and the state of prior preparedness to shocks and disruptions. The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented situation worldwide. To slow the spread of the disease and lessen its impact, governments around the globe have restricted travel and closed borders. Numerous ports and airports have shut, ships have been denied entry, and planes grounded. About 90 percent of global trade is moved by maritime transport. Commercial fishing is a major source of the world’s food. Many seafarers are on board for extended periods. Therefore, to avoid fatigue, crews need to change regularly. This involves some 100,000 seafarers every month. However, because of restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, around 90,000 seafarers are currently stuck onboard cruise ships without passengers and sometimes even without pay. The Maritime Labor Convention 2006 has proved to be a strong and practical instrument that has supported both seafarers and ship owners during this pandemic.
