Integrating Maritime Security and Surveillance Operations Through Collaboration and Next-Generation Technology
Today’s maritime security needs have become highly sophisticated and multi-dimensional with the exponential rise in maritime terrorism, drug trafficking, piracy and other non-traditional seaborne attacks. Technological advancements and modernization are also shaping governments’ spending in the maritime defence and security sector.
Following 15 years of continuous success, the Maritime Security & Coastal Surveillance series has established itself as the preferred annual gathering point for Navies, Coast Guards, Air Forces, Marine Police, Government Agencies and leading technology players.
- Global market for new procurement of military platforms will be worth US$838 billion by 2029

- Annual global spending across all classes of vessels is expected to increase from US$77 billion in 2019 to US$82 billion in 2024
- Asia-Pacific is witnessing a surge in naval procurement as it reacts to growing capabilities among neighbouring countries. Excluding China and India, nations in the region are expected to spend in excess of US$95 billion by the end of 2029
