The collision avoidance and object detection maritime market is projected to reach US$ 450.61 million in 2022; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% during 2022-2028.

The rising number of ships, cruises, and yachts is boosting the growth of the collision avoidance and object detection maritime market. Autonomous navigation technologies, including path planning, guidance and control, obstacle detection, and mapping, play an essential role in the safety of unmanned surface vehicles (USVs). The automatic detection of surrounding objects and estimation of their motion are key aspects in the marine industry, and since such systems operate in harsh environmental conditions, reliable and robust performance is necessitated. Information on surrounding vessels can be obtained using navigational aid systems enabled with the LiDAR and SONAR technologies, among others. The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs) adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) control the design and operation of collision avoidance systems. The use of cameras and LiDAR sensors for the target motion analysis of close‐range obstacles in marine environments is growing rapidly with advancements in optical sensor technology. Further, developments in AI and deep learning are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the collision avoidance and object detection maritime market size during the forecast period.

A rise in the demand for expedition cruises for exhilarating adventures, and cultural and wildlife-spotting outings in watersport activities is a key trend bolstering the demand for safety features in water vehicles, which is triggering the collision avoidance and object detection maritime market size. The increase in disposable income and rising trend for adopting luxurious lifestyle are the key factors promoting the demand for expedition cruises.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Collision Avoidance and Object Detection Maritime Market Growth


In 2020, many electronics and semiconductor manufacturers in the US operated with a limited workforce or temporarily stopped their production due to strict government regulations. This adversely affected the supply chain and the import & export of semiconductor chips and electronic products. Supply chains of collision avoidance and object detection solutions include equipment such as LiDAR systems, cameras, imaging systems, and radar systems. Containers on the west coast of North America were stuck on ships in 2020. Although the containers were finally delivered and emptied later in that year, their return to China was hindered by a slowdown in marine transport across the intermodal network. Owing to such disruptions, semiconductor manufacturers were unable to meet their delivery timelines, which also led to the decreased production of collision avoidance and object detection solutions.
