The current global Internet market forecast for market growth by 2028 is expected to be lower than the previous COVID-19 estimates. The epidemic has had a devastating effect on the global defense industry. In the defense industry, due to declining tax revenues by declining GDP, it is also expected to reduce the need for new military aircraft, naval vessels, submarines, related systems, and military equipment in the next few years. This is also expected to reduce the internet demand for marine resources.

Many governments around the world are focused on controlling the COVID-19 outbreak in their countries. Therefore, they invest heavily in health care and vaccine development. Therefore, the cost of protection for new products is expected to decrease over the next few years. The cost of protection is expected to increase gradually during the forecast period after the end of the epidemic.

Similarly, due to the decline in global trade, the maritime transport industry is also growing at a slower pace. Therefore, the need for new technologies for commercial shipping operators is expected to be lower in the coming years.

The route & operation optimization segment held the greatest market share. This is due to the increased usage of IoT in route mapping and operation optimization.

During the projection period, the asset tracking segment is expected to increase at the fastest CAGR. The usage of IoT in asset tracking has grown in recent years, allowing for more effective asset management. During the projected period, the equipment monitoring segment is expected to develop at the fastest CAGR. IoT equipment is linked to the Internet network, which allows for effective monitoring of all equipment, fueling the growth of this segment.

The marine internet of things market was controlled by this category. Cargo vessels such as container ships, bulk carriers, tankers, and general cargo ships are part of the commercial segment, as are passenger vessels such as yachts, cruise ships, and ferries, and other vessels such as fishing vessels, tugs and work boats, dredgers, research vessels, and submarines. The need for IoT systems and solutions for commercial applications is expected to rise throughout the research period as a result of factors such as increased seaborne trade, a developing maritime tourism industry, rising IoT usage, and the implementation of the IMO Sulfur Regulation. During the study period, the segment is predicted to increase at a faster rate. Destroyers, corvettes, frigates, offshore support boats, aircraft carriers, and submarines are all part of the defence sector. Military investment on the development of new and improved combat vessels is projected to drive demand for IoT technologies.

The market is divided into four product categories: network connection, sensing devices, IT solutions, and IoT platforms, with the network connectivity sector expected to account for the lion's share of the global marine internet of things market. This might be attributed to the increasing use of satellite connectivity solutions by maritime vessel owners, as well as significant investments by enterprises in delivering unparalleled connections.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
