Change brings challenges and opportunities
The naval industry is in the middle of one of the most profound transformations in its history. Across both the commercial and defence sectors, the entire business model is rapidly evolving. As the market becomes globalised, the expectations are becoming increasingly challenging in terms of production deadlines, cost control and quality. Technologies are disrupting operational approaches, demanding that the industries’ major players respond to the opportunities presented by automation, drones, artificial intelligence and data science.
Widespread use of digital-communication solutions is also boosting demand for cybersecurity and safety. For the commercial sector, the major challenges include environmental constraints, with pressure mounting to find solutions that will limit its impact on the planet. In the military sphere, navies are expecting greater performance from their fleet, with reduced forces and lower operational costs.
