The field of maritime safety is associated with the protection of property and life with the help of management, regulation, and technological development of varied forms of waterborne transportation. The major factors promoting growth of the maritime safety market include huge rise in travel and trade activities by seaways, rising awareness about maritime safety, and compliance with regulatory guidelines and standards. The maritime safety refers to the safety of both, people on board as well as ashore and safety of cargo. The threats to the maritime safety may involve potential environmental effects that may cause due to accidental or operational discharge. Factors affecting the security of maritime can be grouped into external and internal factors. External factors may refer those arising due to waterway conditions, quality of vessel traffic services, hydrographic services, pilotage, maritime safety devices, availability of information on water levels, weather condition, and ice among others. Internal factors may include onboard equipment, onboard crew competence, and condition of the ship. Maritime safety is necessary to avoid the instances of intentional damage to cargo, crew, or ship as a result of piracy or terrorism, violence, and theft. The market for maritime security has started to gain attention worldwide after the New York terror attack of 9/11.
The market for maritime safety is expected to witness increased momentum during the forecast period owing to the rise in maritime safety-based services. Increase in marine terrorism related incidents and rising piracy across the globe has led the vendors to offer augmented maritime safety services and solutions, thereby supporting transport and shipping enterprises from such illegal and unethical threats & acts.
