Increasing demand for high-tech vessels is the second major trend driving the marine industry today. Shipowners or operators show a growing interest in multi-role or multi-purpose vessels, especially in the leisure and naval markets. At the same time, the demand for autonomous vessels is also gaining momentum. To succeed, shipbuilders need to deliver versatile vessels that can navigate in a broader range of conditions. However, the shipbuilding process involves more suppliers and partners, thus becoming more complex and putting profitability at risk.
