Market Definition

VHF data exchange system (VDES) is emerging into marine communication like ship to ship, ship to shore, and ship to satellite. Major VDES market players have been effective in positioning their products through the 'Innovation in VDE system technology' approach to a wider target audience. Though clients and customers majorly prefer the VDE system over the AIS system due to technological advancement in VDES. The VHF data exchange system (VDES) is seen as an effective and efficient use of the radio spectrum, building on the capabilities of AIS and addressing the increasing requirements for data through the system. Hence increasing IOT technology in maritime communications is one of the major driving factors for the Europe VHF data exchange system (VDES) market. After things got steady and the Europe economic slowdown scenario improved, these companies were able to regain their market shares by improving the quality of their products. Growing world trade and the rise in marine traffic is also major driving factor that provides a positive boost to the Europe VHF data exchange system (VDES) market.

Europe VHF Data Exchange System (VDES) Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • Growing government funding for VDES

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) VHF data exchange system is considered a revolutionary element as it is capable of transforming and digitalizing the maritime industry. Even though the current Automatic Identification System (AIS) technology is still being upgraded, it has its limitations which maritime professionals have widely echoed. As a result, various space agencies have collaborated with each other, as well as private companies, to develop such satellites to leverage the VHF band for data exchange in the marine communications industry. The marine industry around the world is facing a lack of investments to develop. Thus, huge investment by government agencies and collaboration among each other for the development of VDES is a major factor expected to drive market growth.

  • Development in marine security

Every country's government tries to protect the naval boundaries of their country, and the VHF data exchange system act as a surveillance and communication medium to protect the ships from any dangerous activities. The U.S. government has set up some regulatory bodies to improve development in marine security. If marine security improves, then it will make an ultimately positive impact on the market.

Opportunity

  • Growing preferences for VDES by businesses

The businesses engaged in the maritime industry and related authorities increasingly prefer the VHF data exchange system (VDES) over another available system in the market. As the AIS (Automated Identification System) is currently the communications benchmark in maritime, the emergence of the VDES standard is expected to change this condition in the future. This is due to the technological advantages that VDES offers on the current AIS. Following are a few major factors that have enabled businesses to incline toward VDES in maritime satellite communications.

Restraints/Challenges

  • The high initial cost associated with VDES

The multi-polarized antenna is used in the VHF data exchange system (VDES). This antenna consists of copper and aluminum. Due to the rise in the cost of copper, aluminum, and other raw material, there is an increase in the cost of the VHF data exchange system (VDES). Due to the high cost associated with VDES devices and equipment, it's not easy for private organizations to use VDES for tracking vessels. Hence, it renders the growth of the Europe VHF data exchange system (VDES) market. Most organizations are working on the effective cost of VDES devices. But due to inflation in North America and Europe, the VHF exchange system cost increased. For instance, VHF Antennas cost USD 79.45/unit. This makes the VHF data exchange system devices at a high cost, and hence it is expected to act as a restrain for the market growth.

Post COVID-19 Impact on Europe VHF Data Exchange System (VDES) Market

COVID-19 negatively impacted the Europe VHF data exchange system (VDES) market due to the shutdown of Europe logistics and transportation and the lack of testing for the system.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Europe VHF data exchange system (VDES) market to an extent in negative manner. However, increasing IoT technology in maritime communications and growing world trade and a rise in marine traffic is expected to act as driving factor for the growth of the market and also help the market to grow during and after the pandemic. Also, the growth has been high since the market opened after COVID-19, and it is expected that there will be considerable growth in the sector.

The market players are conducting multiple research and development activities to improve the technology involved in the accessories. With this, the companies will bring advancement and innovation to the market. In addition, government funding for the VDES has led the market growth.
