Smart Port Market Segmented by Product, Top Manufacturers, Geography Trends & Forecasts to 2027

The Global Smart Port Market is estimated to reach USD 8.4 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 24.2%, says forencis research (FSR).

Smart port is defined an automated port that uses emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and Blockchain to enhance its performance. As the volume of trade is growing notably, implementation of these technological solutions helps in automated functioning improving internal efficiency.

Smart Port Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Drivers:

Demand for Operational Efficiency at Ports

The global trade is increasing at faster pace, this have increased vessel size, cargo volumes, traffic at port, which increases pressure on the yards and the stakeholders involved. Because of this increased pressure, the internal efficiency at operational level gets affected at the ports. Incorporating smart solutions may help in optimizing operational activities, improving efficiency and reducing logistics cost. Sensors installed at the ports helps in monitoring infrastructure, scheduling maintenance activities, and optimizing many other operational activities.

Thus, demand for operational efficiency at ports may contribute in the growth for the smart port market, during the forecast period.

Implementation of Cloud Computing to Reduce Carbon Emission

Carbon footprint created by shipping industry is very large. According to International Transport Forum (ITF), approximately 85% of carbon dioxide emissions were produced by ports. To reduce the amount of emissions produced various steps are taken by the industry. Installing cloud computing may help the industry to achieve their target for lower emissions. The organization can migrate the workload to the cloud server which will save energy consumed by on premise infrastructure. Cloud computing helps in saving energy, cost and resources to great extent.

Thus, implementation of cloud computing to reduce carbon emission may contribute in the growth of the smart port market, during the forecast period.

Market Challenges:

Cyberattacks Issue

Recently, the ports are experiencing digital transformation to optimise operational activities and expand the capabilities, such as monitoring of infrastructure, collecting real-time data, and automation. This transformation is based on the technologies such as big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and incorporation of these technologies in the system has made the ports vulnerable to cyberattacks. To utilise technologies at their full potential awareness regarding cyberattacks can be raised among the stakeholders and cybersecurity can be developed.

Thus, cyberattacks can be challenging factor for the growth of the smart port market, during the forecast period.
