Market Insight

Smart ports use innovative technologies and automation to optimize their operations. A well-built digital infrastructure helps ports optimize their physical infrastructure as well as predict and prepare for future investment and maintenance needs.  Better solutions for data storage and sharing enable more transparent, compliant, safer, and faster transport management. The port industry has reached the consensus that ports are transforming from the mechanical era into the era of AI when AI enables ports to become smarter.


However, entire maritime operations from shipyards to carriers of bulk commodities have been affected due to pandemic. A restriction by countries at the ports like a ban on crew changes is disrupting global supply chains. As different countries are in various stages of lockdowns, this affects the port congestion with cargo and containers. Offshore drilling in many countries has also been affected due to the crisis. This largely affects the smart ports market. A growing need for real-time information is driving the growth of the smart ports market. The smart port uses solutions such as regulations, standards, employee training, and periodic control of facilities, risk assessment, proper designs, and monitoring systems to detect any security issue, increase port preparedness, and improve resilience.


Overall port performance in this sense is measurable through exploring port safety management systems, security management systems, and integrated monitoring and optimization systems. It further, gathers better-educated individuals, skilled workforces, intelligent infrastructures, and automation to facilitate knowledge development and sharing, optimize the port operations, enhance the port resiliency, lead sustainable development, and guarantee safe and secure activities. Additionally, rising environmental concern is to boost the growth of the market. The fast and easy flow of this information facilitates wise and well-informed decision-making by port authorities and port customers. This ultimately brings increased productivity, fewer costs, high market competition ability for the port, less emission, energy efficiency, and green logistics. In addition, automatized machinery can replace the human workforce in ports and reduce existing human errors, safety issues, port congestions, and turnaround time as well as increasing operations efficiency. However, the limited availability of a skilled workforce is affecting the growth of the market. Moreover, government Initiatives toward Smart Infrastructure/Port will provide a significant growth opportunity for the market.
