New York, USA, August 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Marine Internet Market Overview

According to a comprehensive research report by Market Research Future (MRFR), “IoT Maritime Market Information by Component, Application, Vessel Type and Region – Forecast by 2027The market is projected to grow by 6.2% CAGR from 2020 -2027.

The main drivers of growth:

With the IoT or Internet of Things gaining widespread traction in the industrial, healthcare, and housing sectors, the maritime industry is rapidly emerging as a significant application. According to Ericsson AB, over 3 billion objects (excluding smartphones) will be connected to the use of mobile technology by 2022. Some of these are robotics, connected vehicles, transport containers and agricultural fields and equipment. The growing presence of IoT in the maritime sector has improved transportation and logistics, increasing security levels on board while reducing operational costs. These benefits are said to be the main reasons for the strong market demand soon.
The maritime sector generates significant amounts of data such as travel, weather, location of assets, maintenance, status of cargo and machinery. Marine IoT, similar to other sectors, operates on the basis of a network of connected devices and sensors that communicate supported by satellite network or 3G / 4G or even 5 / G LTE network. It is expected that the stunning growth witnessed by the maritime tourism sector worldwide will also benefit the global market. Moreover, the escalation of the use of renewable energy sources along with the developments in hybrid propulsion technology can present attractive opportunities for market expansion in the coming years.
