Autonomous Ships Market by Autonomy (Fully Autonomous, Remote Operations, Partial Automation), Ship Type (Commercial, Defense), End Use (Linefit, Retrofit), Solution (Systems, Software, Structures), and Region - Global Forecast to 2030

Autonomous Ships Market by Autonomy (Fully Autonomous, Remote Operations, Partial Automation), Ship Type (Commercial, Defense), End Use (Linefit, Retrofit), Solution (Systems, Software, Structures), and Region - Global Forecast to 2030

Growth in seaborne trade coming years is the key factor impacting the growth of the autonomous ships market

The autonomous ships market size is expected to grow from USD 6.1 billion in 2018 to USD 13.8 billion by 2030, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.00% during the forecast period. The increasing seaborne trade and the growth in maritime tourism drive the autonomous ships market. Digitalization making ships vulnerable to cyber threats and the shortage of qualified professionals in the maritime industry serve as restraints for the autonomous ships market.

Partial automation segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous ships market in 2018 due to the increasing demand for automation systems in commercial and naval ships

Based on autonomy, the partial automation segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous ships market in 2018. Systems such as propulsion systems, power management systems, alarm & management system, and others are being demanded by ship operators. The increase in demand for such systems is expected to drive the market for partial automation in ships. Kongsberg Gruppen, Rolls-Royce and Siemens are manufacturers that provide automation systems for commercial ships.

Increasing demand for various ship health & safety systems is expected to drive the market for automation systems

Based on solution, the market is segmented into systems, software and structures. Increasing demand for reliability, and health & safety management systems & the requirement for real-time connectivity in marine ships is expected to drive the demand for systems segment.

Asia Pacific is estimated to hold the largest share of the autonomous ships market in 2018

The Asia Pacific is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous ships market in 2018. Increasing demand for commercial ships from countries such as India, China, and Japan and the increasing investment in autonomous ships is expected to drive the market for autonomous ships in Asia Pacific.
