Scope of the Study
Self-driving ships are autonomous marine vehicles intended to be guided by their own and uses the technology similar to the driverless cars or pilotless aircraft. Shipping, being an important mode of transportation, has witnessed various advancements and self-driving is expected to provide a perfect platform for full-fledged AI incorporation in the marine industry. Noticing the importance of such development, countries like Norway, the United Kingdom, Japan, Finland and China are already exploring all the possibilities and research & trials are underway in this regard.
The market study is being classified by Type (Maritime Self-driving Ships and Small Self-driving Ships), by Application (Commercial & Scientific and Military & Defense) and major geographies with country level break-up.
Kongsberg (Norway), Rolls-Royce (United Kingdom), ASV Global (United States), DARPA (United States), NYK Line (Japan), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (Japan), HNA Group (China), Yara (Norway), Airbnb (United States), Automated Ships Ltd. (United Kingdom) and Vigor Industrial etc (United States) are some of the key players profiled in the study. Additionally, the Manufacturers which are also part of the research are Uber (United States), Airbnb (United States) and Spotify (Sweden).
Research Analyst at AMA predicts that United States Manufacturers will contribute to the maximum growth of Global Self-driving Ships market throughout the predicted period.
