Advanced Trends to Shape the Future of Marine Electronics Market

With impressive advancement in technology in the recent years, several unique trends are emerging in marine electronics market. Ship owners can now experience smart fleet management and changing face of ship emission. Furthermore, there has been incorporation of well-advanced technologies in the marine electronic industries such as deeper level of machine learning, artificial intelligence, industrial IoT, augmented reality, virtual reality, blockchain, and many more.

It is also estimated that this year there will be a demonstration and trials of autonomous surface vessels which can be used for testing the boundaries. It is also influencing on the construction of world’s first autonomous commercial ship. Drone technology is also targeted for assisting the surveyors on ships. It can help the surveyors to collect information from difficult-to-reach areas on ships and to test ship emission. Wearable technology and robotics are also a part of the development in marine electronics.

Trends in Marine Electronics

Marine electronics comprises electronic devices designed for marine environment which are resistant to water so the salt water cannot affect the. Here are certain new and advanced trends in marine electronics:

  1. Smaller and Better GPS

Earlier, marine GPS use to come in a size as big as a shoe box which requires six hours wait to check if it is working or functional. Today, it has miniature of integrated circuits, discrete, and surface-mount components which are exceptionally small. Rakon in Aukland, New Zealand has developed a micro-size GPS receiver which is smaller than a coin which can be built into the small handheld radios.

  1. Wearable Technology

3.6-oz. monocular video “eyewear” device allows to see the information on the yacht’s display screens such as chart plotter, radar, sonar, or any video image. It is adapted from virtual-reality and military applications and can be used with other devices such as video iPod. Such monocular eyewear gives a clear view of both the screen and the outside world.

  1. Advanced Automatic Identification System (AIS)

This marine electronic system is an equivalent to radar transponder in air-traffic control system and has revolutionized the marine traffic communications. The AIS transponder tells maritime address, position, and more to every AIS receiver by broadcasting a signal.

Such trends and enhancement in marine electronics are sure to be adopted significantly in the near future. Manufacturers are also focusing on developing devices that ease the work help in understanding the depth of this field.
