However, amid the pandemic, various governments globally has continued to focus on developing and innovating marine communication technologies by launching advanced marine communication satellites for faster and reliable data transfer between shores and ships. For instance, on September 2020, China has launched its 3rd maritime satellite into space to carry out high-precision maritime environment monitoring. Thus, the continued innovation in maritime communication technologies has resulted in significant growth in the market.

Increasing Demand for VHF-based Data Exchange System

The VHF-based Data Exchange System (VDES) provides a robust and globally standard communication system for e-navigation. It supports the safety and efficiency of ship and shore operations. The reduced cost of deployment and improved communication is creating demand in various countries around the globe.

Moreover, marine electronic vendors are also focusing on offering cost-effective satellite-based communication. For instance, EGNOS, a European satellite-based augmentation service (SBAS), provides correction to GPS signals to increase the accuracy of position information. Thus, the demand for satellite-based communication system is driving the demand, and is fuelling the global marine communication market.
