Ocean of Opportunity

The global blue economy is estimated widely to be worth in excess of $5t by 2030, more than doubling in size from now. The ports and maritime sector sits at the nexus of the blue and green economies, and this sector alone contributes over £116bn to the UK economy facilitating over 95% of the UK’s international trade and 90% of trade globally.

Cleantech solutions in maritime and the wider blue economy provide a growth opportunity being driven by a sector rapidly shifting to modernise legacy operations through innovation, digital transformation and developing more sustainable products, services, infrastructure and tech solutions which are less carbon intensive.
