The second annual Global Maritime Issues Monitor takes a global look at major issues that are likely to impact the maritime industry in the coming decade.

Global Maritime Issues Monitor 2019

The Global Maritime Issues Monitor 2019 examines the impact, likelihood and preparedness of 18 global issues potentially affecting the global maritime industry in the coming decade. The report is based on research among senior maritime leaders from 46 countries around the world and commentary from more than a dozen other leaders and experts. The report also undertakes deep dives into the emerging trends in the workforce of the future and into the barriers on shipping’s path towards decarbonization.

Key findings include:

  • Environmental and climate related issues jump to the top of decision-makers’ agenda
  • ‘Global economic crisis’ ranked to have potentially the greatest impact on the maritime industry over a ten-year horizon
  • ‘New environmental regulation’, ‘geopolitical tension’ and ‘cyber-attacks and data theft’ perceived as most likely to occur in the next 10 years
  • Industry deemed least prepared for global issues considered to have the biggest impact – although more confident in some financial areas

The second annual Global Maritime Issues Monitor is published by the Global Maritime Forum, Marsh, and the International Union of Marine Insurance.
