Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) Market Report on Global Trends, Status and Forecast, by Players, Types and Applications


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/02/2018 -- Market Highlights:

Voyage data recorder (VDR) is a record-keeping device, invented specifically to be installed in a watercraft. It gathers information from different sensors on board, and stores it in an externally mounted protective storage unit. This recording is recovered, in a compressed and digitized format, and is used for investigation in the event of accidents. Improved safety standards in maritime industry are the primary factor driving the growth of the market. Organizations such as the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), International Maritime Organization (IMO), and several other regional associations, have come up with major mandates to ensure safety of maritime industry. In addition, the demand for unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) is continuously increasing for naval intelligence, mine countermeasures (MCM) operations, ISR roles, and anti-submarine warfare missions. It creates an opportunity for the market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of next-generation black boxes, may hamper the growth of the market.

The market is driven by various factors such as improved safety standards at sea, introduction of advanced VDR technologies, and proactive usage of VDRs. The VDR market also has various opportunities such as tapping into the naval sector, and equipment with the unmanned undersea vehicles.
