Key Market Trends

Commercial Industry to Hold Major Share

  • The commercial users have benefitted by the increasing applications and developments of advanced sensor technology, which aids data generation related to the engine, fuel, traffic, cargo, weather, etc. The demand for maritime analytics solutions is expected to increase, as cargo flows are set to expand across all segments with containerised and significant dry bulk commodities trades.
  • European Commission has stated in the 2018 report that the Mediterranean Sea has the highest sulphur oxide emission due to international shipments in the year 2005 with the value 764,000 metric tons. Also, it is expected to witness a drastic reduction to 167,000 metric tons by the year 2020 but will still hold the leading position. The shipping companies are moving with sustainable strategies to reduce these emissions and adopting such analytics solutions for emission monitoring.
  • According to the International Maritime Organization, the world’s maritime industry is expected to have new anti-pollution measures by the end of 2019. These new anti-pollution measures aim to reduce the amount of high-sulfur ingredients in “bunker” fuels; drive the demand for maritime analytics solution for its monitoring.
  • As the maritime industry includes both shipbuilding and recreational craft along with increasing fleet size across the world, the demand for maritime analytics solutions across its operations is increasing. The marine insurers are also adopting the maritime analytics software solutions to optimise risk selection, improve productivity and deliver better results.

Competitive Landscape

The maritime analytics market is inclined towards fragmentation with the evolution in technology for data sensing, connection, and exchange with a central console in real-time, transmitting data ashore, and the use of AI enhanced tools to develop a deep understanding of sea vessel assets and machinery. Overall, the market has intense competitive rivalry among existing competitors and innovative strategy of different companies expected to increase the demand for maritime analytics.

  • March 2019 - ioCurrents announced the completion of a USD 5 million financing round by Imagen Capital Partners, to support the continued roll-out of its MarineInsight analytics platform. The company has planned to incorporate this capital to provide machine learning-based predictive analytics on the performance of engines, generators, and other vessel assets, derived from aggregated data sets collected on the ship.
  • February 2019 - Spire Global Inc. launched a new business unit called Spire Maritime and is dedicated to developing satellite data and analytics solutions for the Maritime industry. With this new unit, the company will be able to place even greater focus on the high growth opportunities in maritime AIS data and analytics for activities at sea.
