Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Marine Communication Systems Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global marine communication systems market: Inmarsat, Leonardo, ORBIT Communication Systems, and Saab.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Iridium Communications, Oculus Technologies, ROHDE & SCHWARZ, and Telemar Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is advancements in SATCOM-based marine communication system. SATCOM uses communication satellites to transmit radio frequency and microwave signals. It amplifies these signals and relays them to the sender and receiver who are widely separated and assists in information exchange. Such satellites find their application in radio and telephone communication.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is growing focus on better and faster communication mechanism. The rate of data transfer is proportional to its bandwidth. It is especially vital in military applications, where communication speed plays a significant role. However, often, navies have limited available bandwidth, which hampers their data transfer rate. Therefore, efforts are being directed toward improving the speed of communication through bandwidth enhancements. In 2013, the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) initiated a test program, under which the agency equipped ships with the maritime cellular infrastructure to augment the existing satellite-based communication.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is security issues pertaining to information technology. Information technology is a crucial component of modern maritime ships, which includes shipboard digital communication systems that are computerized. This presents high chances of cyber threats such as network intrusion and hacking. As VSAT networks on ships are mainly engaged in the transmission of messages and access to the internet, they remain extremely vulnerable to hacking. Most often, the systems are connected to other devices that form a part of the ship's broader network.
