Market to Fully Recover Post the Adverse Effect of Covid - 19

The spread of the COVID-19 disease has had a significant negative influence on a number of different types of businesses, one of which being the marine industry, which includes activities such as shipping, boating, and sailing. Due to the shutdown of facilities caused by this outbreak, boating repair and other activities related to boats have come to a halt. In an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus, all commercial and marine recreational activities, as well as personal pleasure boats, have been temporarily halted. According to the insights provided by Willis Towers Watson, more than three billion people throughout the world have been placed under lockdown, which has led to a reduction in the amount of economic activity and a 3% decline in the global economy. The delay in re-establishing the supply chain networks and the capacities of logistics will have an impact on the industry of boat manufacturing and maintenance.

Increasing Demand from Recreational Boating Industry

It is projected that the growing need for boats used for leisure purposes will enhance demand in the market for boat construction. Boating for pleasure is a well-liked pastime activity in many countries throughout the world. Recreational boating includes a wide variety of activities, such as water skiing, fishing, and travel, that are enjoyed by a large number of people. For instance, in 2021, the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), which represents producers of recreational boats, engines, and marine accessories in North America, reported retail unit sales of new powerboats in the United States increased by approximately 12% compared to 2019. This was in comparison to the previous year, 2019. Over 311,000 brand-new powerboats were purchased in 2020, which brought the recreational boating industry to its previous level. It is probable that the increase in boating for recreational purposes will contribute to the demand in the market for boat repairs.

Expected Fair Performance Economic Indicators

The expectation of consistent performance of economic indicators in a large number of developed and developing nations is beneficial to the market for ship and boat construction as well as boat and ship repair. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) projects that the growth of the global GDP will be 3.3% in the year 2020 and 3.4% in the year 2021. It is anticipated that the rising commodity prices, which have experienced a major drop throughout the course of history, would further contribute to the expansion of the industry. It is also anticipated that developed economies will maintain stable growth over the time covered by this forecast. In addition, during the period covered by the forecast, it is anticipated that the growth of emerging markets will continue to be slightly ahead of that of developed markets. The market is likely to be driven during the forecast period by stable economic growth, which is expected to raise investments at end-user markets, which in turn drives the market.

Application of Cutting Edge Technologies to Increase Efficiency

In the marine business, robots are utilised for the performance of a wide variety of duties, ranging from cleaning and maintenance to fully driverless ships, with the goals of lowering the danger of injury to humans and improving the overall efficacy of the process. For example, the Robotic Hull Bio-Inspired Underwater Grooming Tool, commonly known as the Hull BUG, is a miniature robot that can clean the surface of the hull of a ship by attaching itself to the underside of the ship. Estimates provided by Sea Robotics indicate that a reduction of one billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions and a saving of around $15 billion in annual fuel expenses can be achieved by increasing fuel efficiency by five % through routine cleanings. It is anticipated that robots would provide benefits that are green and favourable to the environment. Therefore, cutting-edge robotics that are having an impact on maritime operations is a significant development that is driving a crucial trend in the maritime business. Platforms based on the SaaS model are assisting in the reduction of unanticipated costs in the field of ship repair and maintenance.
