Insights from Maritime Industry Experts: Predicted Trends for 2023

In the maritime industry of 2023, challenges abound, but collaboration, green transition, security, and energy costs create a promising future.

Welcome to the world of maritime industry trends in 2023! With the ongoing challenges of Covid-19, geopolitical tensions, and environmental concerns, it’s no surprise that the industry has seen its share of turbulence. But with a focus on collaboration, green transition, security, and energy cost trends, we believe that the future looks bright.

As an industry leader, we want to keep you informed about the latest trends and developments. That’s why we are excited to share the predictions of maritime experts for 2023.

In spite of these challenges, collaboration and optimism are expected to set the tone for the shipping industry over the next decade or so. Experts predict that by 2023:


Collaboration is the key trend in the maritime industry in 2023. Shipowners are working together to develop and deploy new technologies that reduce emissions, improve efficiency and save money.

Collaboration between clean technology companies and shipowners is also on the rise as they look for ways to improve their products’ performance while reducing costs.

The increased collaboration among these groups will help them achieve their goals faster than if they were working alone or even in competition with each other.


Green Transition

The green transition is a major trend that industry experts predict for 2023. Shipowners and operators are becoming increasingly well-equipped to ensure their fleets are environmentally friendly, with modern vessels now using less fuel and emitting fewer pollutants than ever before.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by at least 50% by 2050 compared with 2008 levels. The IMO also encourages industry members to use alternative fuels such as LNG or renewables where possible, and it has introduced new regulations on air pollution from ships’ engines which require them to meet strict standards on particulate matter emissions by 2020.



Security: The maritime industry is a critical component of global supply chains, and it’s important to protect this infrastructure from cybercriminals. In 2023, the transportation and shipping sector will continue to be targeted by cybercriminals who seek to manipulate supply chains through various means such as ransomware attacks or data theft.

Regulations: As regulations around the world continue to tighten, companies must ensure they’re compliant with all applicable laws in order to avoid fines or other penalties that could impact their bottom line.

Energy Cost Trends

The maritime industry is in a state of flux as it grapples with the effects of climate change, rising energy costs and shifting consumer preferences. The world’s largest shipping companies are already investing heavily in new technologies that will help them cut their carbon emissions by up to 50 percent by 2030.

But this transition won’t happen overnight–and there are still many hurdles to overcome before we can say goodbye to fossil fuels entirely. For example, if you’re a procurer or operator making decisions about how much money should be spent on new vessels today, what factors do you consider? What do you think about when deciding whether or not your company should invest in zero-emission foiling vessels?


The maritime industry has always been a place of collaboration and innovation, but it’s time for us to step up our game. The future is here, and we need to embrace it together. We can do this by focusing on sustainable practices, building a more sustainable future for all of us.
