The maritime information market was valued at US$ 1,882.01 million in 2021 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2022 to 2028.

Digital transformation in the maritime industry has enabled users to collect vital information on the ownership, movement, specifications, and commercial activities of naval vessels. Maritime information solutions help ships adapt to rough sea conditions by monitoring multiple parameters, thus enabling users to make better strategic and operational decisions. In addition, these solutions offer benefits such as enhanced productivity and overall safety while ensuring the efficiency of maritime operations. Such factors are bolstering the Maritime Information Market size.

Maritime information solutions play an important role in ensuring the security of the economy; hence, these solutions are widely used by government agencies across the world. These solutions help various countries reduce maritime threats such as human trafficking, terrorist attacks, environmental destruction, and illegal immigration by sea. Furthermore, there has been a significant increase in the number of ships crossing the oceans due to the liberalization of world trade, which is boosting the demand for these solutions. In addition, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has mandated all ships to have an Automatic Identification System (AIS) to monitor ship traffic and avoid collisions with other ships. Moreover, manufacturers in the maritime industry are funding research and development activities to achieve the ability to accurately detect signals from naval vessels. Such factors are bolstering the Maritime Information Market size.

With the rising maritime traffic, it has become essential to improve the safety and security of ships and preserve their environment. For instance, according to India's Ports Department, in 2020, cargo traffic at the main ports of India was 414.20 million tonnes, which increased by 12.9% in 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. Furthermore, the exchange of information encourages various parts of the maritime industry supply chain to work together for smooth operation. Integrated systems with vessel traffic monitoring capabilities and effective tracking systems, such as AIS and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), have become vital for ships, which is contributing to the maritime information market growth.

A few of the major companies operating in the maritime information market are Inmarsat, L3 Harris Technologies, ORBCOMM, Raytheon Company, Thales Group, exactEarth, and Iridium Communications. For instance, in April 2022, Spire Global introduced weather information solutions for the maritime industry. The company collects global weather data through a fully deployed constellation of more than 100 satellites that reach remote areas, including open oceans, that have been challenging to observe. Spiers delivers weather insights and saves customers time and costs by combining weather data with marine expertise through machine learning and artificial intelligence.

In September 2022, BAE Systems announced its plan to launch the first multi-sensor satellite cluster into low Earth orbit by 2024 to deliver high-quality maritime information and intelligence in real-time from space to military customers.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Maritime Information Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic caused long-term effects on marine trade and transportation. Ports, shipping operations, and supply chains were adversely affected by the pandemic-related restrictions. Raw material shortage, lead-time issues, blank sailings, port closures, shortened port hours, equipment and labor shortages, and transportation capacity restrictions were a few of the difficulties marine vessel operators faced during the crisis. These impediments seriously damage transportation services and jeopardize the smooth operation of supply chains and trade flows. The maritime industry in several nations and areas released several port marine circulars connected to the COVID-19 crisis.

Governments of various countries imposed travel restrictions and closed borders to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2. As a result, ports and airports were shut down. Approximately 90% of world trade is transported by sea. Additionally, the social and physical distancing measures imposed by governments of various countries have led port authorities to limit their vessel operations, which reduced the demand for maritime information and analytics solutions. However, with the upliftment of lockdown and successful vaccination processes in 2021, several companies have resumed their operations, and ease of travel restriction helped the maritime industry regain its momentum. Thus, in 2021, the demand for maritime information solutions increased across the world.
