Middle East and Africa Vessel Monitoring System Market to Grow at a CAGR of 9.9% During the Period 2022-2027, Driven by Need for Greater Monitoring of Vessels to Curb Illegal Fishing Activity

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Middle East and Africa Vessel Monitoring System Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the Middle East and Africa Vessel Monitoring System market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% during the period 2022-2027, led by innovative solutions.

The Middle East and Africa Vessel Monitoring System market is expected to be driven by the need for greater levels of monitoring, control, and surveillance (MCS) of vessels. The ability of vessel monitoring systems to aid law enforcement and facilitate calls for help are expected to help market growth. Further, advanced features offered by modern systems are likely to boost market growth. However, higher costs may hinder market growth. Vessel monitoring systems are used by fisheries authorities, coastguards and navies for surveillance, search and rescue, resource management and fisheries control.

Modern systems have become increasingly sophisticated, and come with the capability of being integrated with other management tools. Such solutions are expected to drive the Middle East and Africa Vessel Monitoring System market. Service providers offer advanced features such as:

Electronic catch reporting (e-logs) - Facilitation of near-real time catch reporting to enable fishery managers to more easily correlate catch and effort data with vessel monitoring system position information and inspection reports.

Integrated catch documentation schemes - Tracking and tracing fish from the point of capture through the supply chain, recording and certifying data that identifies where, when, and by whom the fish were caught.

Observer programs - Onboard observers independently gather information at sea, for example, tracking bycatch, catch composition, and gear configuration data. When combined and verified with vessel monitoring system, the information assumes critical importance for responsible fisheries management.

Catch share or quota monitoring - Catch shares, or quotas, allocate a particular area or percentage of a fishery’s total catch to an individual, community, or association. Vessel monitoring system can help fix participant accountability by offering near-real time information on vessel position as well as catch reporting through e-logs.

The Middle East and Africa Vessel Monitoring System market is expected to be driven by growing adoption of modern solutions. For example, in 2021, it was reported that The Sultanate of Oman would install automatic tracking devices for coastal fishing vessels to develop electronic monitoring systems.

In 2016, SRT announced that it had received an order for 400 AIS Identifier VMS Transceiver kits to be deployed in West Africa for the tracking and identification of small fishing vessels.

In 2016, SRT announced that it had received an initial order and first payment for the supply of AIS vessel monitoring transceivers for deployment in Saudi Arabia.

In 2022, The Nigerian Government disclosed the establishment of a Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) in Lagos, South-West Nigeria and Abuja, the country’s capital, to monitor and regulate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing along Nigeria’s continental shelf.

Companies like ORBCOMM offer vessel monitoring solutions, providing vessel owners and operators with regulatory compliance and real-time visibility and insight into marine operations. Approved by the South African Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), ORCBOMM VMS also helps fleet operators comply with United Nations Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing legislation (IPOA-IUU).
