Maritime Innovation Ecosystem

Over the last decade, Singapore has built up a respectable maritime innovation ecosystem, comprising a large base of demand drivers (our global hub port and IMC), a vast network of potential solutions providers (technology developers and start-ups), as well as a robust research community (including centres of excellence within local research institutes). This is supported by an enabling environment conducive for growth, with a highly educated workforce, strong protection for intellectual property, and quality R&D infrastructure. As a testament to our strength in maritime R&D, the recent 2017 Menon Publication ranked Singapore as 2nd in the category of maritime technology, amongst 30 cities being benchmarked.
