COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The effects of the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic will extend far beyond health and the threat to human lives. There are already signs that the virus will have a significant impact on international trade and the shipping industry.

The outbreak has caused the shipping and shipping industry to face the worst circumstances as the workforce in these sectors have been shut down for safety and prevention of COVID-19 escalation. Market disruptions due to the coronavirus pandemic have resulted in a 5% to 7% year-on-year (YoY) decline in annual marine communications equipment in 2020.

However, amid the pandemic, various governments around the world have continued to focus on the development and innovation of marine communication technologies by launching advanced marine communication satellites for faster and reliable data transfer between coasts and the boats. For example, in September 2020, China launched its 3rd maritime satellite into space to conduct high-precision monitoring of the maritime environment. Thus, continuous innovation in maritime communication technologies has resulted in significant market growth.
