Market Overview:

The global powered data buoy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for data buoy in oil & gas, defense, research and other applications. In terms of type, the solar powered data buoy segment is expected to hold a major share of the market during the forecast period owing to its advantages such as low installation and maintenance cost as compared to battery powered data buoys.

Global Powered Data Buoy Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A powered data buoy (PDB) is a floating, autonomous device that collects and transmits oceanographic data. The importance of PDBs is twofold: first, they provide a cost-effective way to collect high-quality oceanographic data; second, they help fill gaps in our knowledge of the ocean by providing information in areas where traditional observations are not feasible.

Solar Powered:

Solar powered data buoy is a device that aids in the collection of hydrographic data and it is used for marine research activities, such as soundings, oceanographic surveys, etc. It works on solar energy which provides power to drive its equipment and also helps in monitoring water temperature & salinity.

Battery Powered:

Battery powered is a device which utilizes rechargeable battery as its source of energy. It can be used in various applications such as monitoring water levels in reservoirs, tracking oil spills and monitoring pollution levels. Battery powered devices are widely used for data collection from ships and other marine vessels, wireless sensor networks, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and wind power stations among others.

Application Insights:

The others application segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The oil & gas industry has been one of the major adopters of data buoys as they help in reducing offshore costs by around 60%. The industry saves onshore costs by avoiding expensive mooring systems and installation hardware.

The defense sector was another key segment that adopted powered data buoy technology owing to its benefits such as enhanced accuracy, high precision, real-time tracking capability, secure communications network and a highly durable system. These products are used extensively across various sectors such as weather monitoring, research activities along with providing critical infrastructure protection services at sea.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global powered data buoy market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing offshore oil and gas activities in the Gulf of Mexico, which will drive demand for exploration and production (E&P) equipment. In addition, growing offshore wind energy projects off the coast of Massachusetts is anticipated to further boost product demand over the forecast period.

Europe accounted for a significant share in terms of revenue as well as volume in 2017 owing to high penetration levels across major industries such as marine, defense, research institutes along with other applications that require real-time tracking and monitoring systems.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for data buoy from the oil and gas industry for offshore exploration and production activities
  • Rising demand for data buoy from the defense sector to monitor naval operations and maritime security
  • Growing popularity of data buoy among research institutes and universities for oceanographic research studies
  • Proliferation of smart ocean technologies that are driving the adoption of data buoys across various applications
  • Stringent regulations on shipping emissions encouraging the deployment of emission control systems using data buoys
