Top 10 Marine Tech Solution Companies - 2021

With the growing tides of technology underpinned by necessity, the marine landscape is changing. Shipbuilding, smart shipping, propulsion, innovative materials, big data and analytics, robotics, sensors, and communications, together with an increasingly skilled workforce, are all affecting how the marine industry approaches new challenges and opportunities.

With the launch of 5G and new generations of satellites, communication between ships and stakeholders is set to enhance even further. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is used to help asset management throughout the life of a vessel, and live video and audio monitoring can also be used to keep track of the status of ships remotely. Furthermore, advancements in sensor technology can help track a wide range of information, including position and environmental data. Real-time monitoring and data analysis can also increase operational performance, lengthen the average lifespan of a shipping vessel, and increase commercial shipping efficiency.

There are many solution providers delivering tailored marine solutions using cutting-edge technologies to improve the efficiency, safety, and quality of air and marine transportation systems. They are also designing and supplying sensors, communication systems, and tracking systems for marine vessels.
