Automation processes on board are becoming more complex because of the constant progress of technology and due to a rise in the number of systems. In order to efficiently use these systems, operators need special training. An onboard training system (OBTS) is designed to be permanently available on-board, whereas a land-based training system LBTS is developed specifically for use in shore-based training in centers. The LBTS and OBTS systems helps in training a ship’s technical crew members in the onboard processes, allowing them to fully exploit the potential of these automated systems. LBTS and OBTS also help sea-going personnel to provide training related to ship simulations in operational/real-time situations. This results in reproducing highly accurate conditions on the actual automation software to raise the level of operating security and minimize the operating error rate, leaving hardware, people, and the environment less exposed to risk.

Low operational cost, enhanced operational efficiency, and better management of processes are a few benefits of onboard and land-based training systems. A major factor likely to drive the global onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market in the next few years is a rise in demand for crew safety solutions for identifying maritime emergencies and guiding rescue operations. Increase in the adoption of automation, IoT, and cloud computing in the marine sector has led to the advancement of the centralized training system. Real-time training also helps comply with ship security alert service (SSAS) and long range identification and tracking (LRIT) regulations. Furthermore, simulation-based training at sea improves operational effectiveness without causing machinery damage or stress. The simulation also incorporates onboard systems such as fuel and fresh water supplies and sea water firefighting installations. These are some of the factors anticipated to drive the global onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market in the near future.

However, the cost of implementation of OBTS and LBTS systems is expected to restrict the growth of the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market. Furthermore, cybersecurity is a major concern for vendors in implementing on-board training systems. Data security issues are estimated to hinder the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market during the forecast period.

The global onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market can be segmented based on component, ship, platform, application, and region. In terms of component, the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market can be divided into hardware, software (on-premise, cloud (public cloud, private cloud), and hybrid), and services (managed services and professional services (maintenance, integration, and installation)). Based on ship, the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market can be classified into commercial and defense ships. In terms of platform, the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market can be categorized into on-board and land-based. Based on application, the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market can be classified into management, monitoring, test, and communication.

In terms of region, the global onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market can be classified into North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to account for a major share of the global onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to a rise in government involvement in port and coastal security. Moreover, high investments in the development of inland waterways to promote interconnected modes of transport are propelling the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be a rapidly expanding region of the onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market from 2018 to 2026. This is due to a rise in the adoption of training systems in the marine industry across the region. Companies in the marine sector in countries such as India, China, and Japan are investing heavily in advanced technologies in order to gain a competitive edge.

Major players operating in the global onboard training system (OBTS) and land-based training system (LBTS) market include Siemens AG, Seagull Maritime AS, Industrial Training Services, Inc., VIKING Saatsea, Kongsberg Maritime, Elbit Systems of America, LLC, Maersk Training, Survivex, and DELTA Safety.
