Global Marine Autopilots Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Marine autopilots are used to navigate boats and ships. They are important because they help keep boats on course, which can be especially important in rough weather or when traveling through difficult waterways.


Hydraulic is the force that is generated when a liquid is applied at constant pressure on the surface of an object. In other words, hydraulic means “liquid applied pressure”. The word comes from the Greek word "hydro", which means water. When we talk about hydraulic systems in an automobile, it generally refers to systems that are used for steering and suspension purposes; i.e.


Electronic is the part of technology that involves electrical circuits and associated devices. It's usage in marine autopilots has been growing rapidly as it helps to increase safety, enhance efficiency and comfort, and help to reduce human errors. Electronic controls are used in various applications such as engine control systems, navigation systems, communication systems etc.

Application Insights:

The passenger ship application segment led the market and accounted for more than 40.0% share of the global revenue in 2017 owing to increasing demand from cruise liners for marine autopilots with enhanced features, such as advanced maneuvering capabilities and increased safety equipment. The growing trend of cruising has resulted in an increase in passenger ships on scheduled cruises as well as on-call charters, thereby augmenting product demand over the forecast period.

Cargo ships are expected to be among fastest-growing segments during the forecast period due to rising demand from bulk carriers for improved maneuverability while loading and unloading cargo at port facilities. Furthermore, these vessels also require autonomous navigation systems that can help avoid collisions at sea by providing a digital map display along with a radar system that provides accurate range measurements and vessel position information toward avoiding obstacles during cargo operations at sea. These factors are anticipated to drive product adoption across various types of cargo ships over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a share of more than 30% in terms of revenue and is likely to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increasing maritime trade activities, especially across Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam among others. Increasing demand for passenger ships from developing economies such as China and India coupled with rising investments by various governments in these countries are some factors that are projected to drive regional growth during the forecast period.

Europe was valued at USD X billion in 2017 owing to growing marine transportation activities across European countries including Germany, Italy among others which are major consumers of marine autopilots worldwide due to their well-established shipbuilding sector along with advanced technology adoption rate higher than other regions globally making it one of the most attractive markets globally for industry players seeking high growth potential through expansion or joint ventures etc.).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for marine autopilots from the commercial shipping sector as a result of the need to improve safety and efficiency at sea.
  • The increasing popularity of recreational sailing, which is driving demand for marine autopilots from the leisure boating market.
  • The development of new and more advanced autopilot technologies that can provide greater levels of accuracy and reliability.
  • Growing awareness among boat owners about the benefits of using marine autopilots, which is helping to boost sales growth in this market segment.
  • The increasing number of regulations governing maritime safety, which are encouraging boat owners to invest in marine autopilots as a way to ensure compliance with these regulations
