Vessel Tracking System Market: Introduction

  • Growing concern about vessel security and safety, globally, is driving the vessel tracking system market
  • The International Maritime Organization has a setup a regulatory framework to ensure maritime safety globally, which requires vessel to use tracking and monitoring systems
  • Rise in vessel traffic, piracy threats, and demand for safe navigation in international waters are boosting the vessel tracking system market

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Vessel Tracking System Market

  • Shore-based vessel tracking has become a standard practice for maritime authorities across several nations to ensure safe navigation, marine search & rescue, and to protect the environmental.
  • The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) requires the vessels engaged international voyages to be installed with the Long Range Tracking and Identification (LRIT) type vessel tracking system. Majority of countries across the world have adopted the LRIT since its inception in 2008. Around 8000 ships in the Panama port of registry have adopted the vessel tracking system.
  • The LRIT vessel tracking system is unable to transmit accurate data when sailing in polar waters, as the geographic coverage it provides is limited to 76° latitude in both hemispheres.

High Demand for Long Range Tracking and Identification (LRIT)

  • LRIT is required to be installed in all passenger carriers, cargo carriers, high speed boats, and other vessels that weigh more than 3000 tons. The SOLAS convention. Non-signatory SOLAS countries are expected to adopt vessel tracking to be more transparent in marine operations and be able to participate actively in global maritime trade. The LRIT system transmits the vessel identity, location, time of the location to the port authorities on shore

Demand of Automatic Identification System (AIS) to Increase due to Rise in Number of Vessels

  • AIS systems works on very high frequency and share varied information such as ship identity, vessel type, speed, course, position, cargo, destination with other ships and shores. AIS enhances safety & security of the vessel. The data derived from AIS is also utilized to assess efficiency, navigational feasibility, and for shipping applications.

Cargo ships to Lead Vessel Tracking System Market

  • Based on vessel type, the cargo ships segment is expected to lead the global market, owing to their higher numbers. The passenger carrier segment is also estimated to expand at a high growth rate owing to a rise in tourism, thereby driving the use of cruise ships.
