5 Key Outcomes for OPV 2018:
- Define a blueprint for future builds which will maximise deployability, survivability and endurance for OPV operations in the complex environment
- Enable future deployed operations by better integrating and leveraging the advanced situational awareness and C2 capabilities of the OPV
- Execute multiple mission sets by integrating modularity and adaptability from the design phase – without compromising on baseline capability
- Approach continuous vessel operation and minimise downtime by implementing predictive approaches to sustainment, maintenance and support
- Network the OPV with unmanned and manned airborne assets to increase the platform’s ability to patrol beyond line of sight

The market for offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) is buoyant as countries seek to modernise, upgrade, and replace platforms to keep up with the pace of technology change and the evolving threat spectrum. Their multi-role capabilities also makes them a popular choice for militaries and governments as they seek to get more bang for their buck.
Ahead of the Offshore Patrol Vessels conference (14 – 16 September, 2016 - Glasgow, UK), Defence IQ commissioned a survey of naval experts and industry professionals to gauge how the market is evolving and to identify the key trends in the market over the next ten years.
Based on a survey of 429 industry experts and military stakeholders, this report looks to analyse the data and provide an insight into the OPV market. It focuses on the key challenges for modernising the platforms, looks at the potentially game-changing new technologies coming to market, the benefits of modularity, and the regional markets targeted for growth.
Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) are the fastest growing segment of the Naval Vessels Market. At least 36 countries are known to have a total of 167 OPVs on order and 28 countries have plans for up to another 239 at a total value of over $60 billion. The total number of OPVs on order has increased by 23% in the last year, although the number planned has decreased by 13% as plans have transferred to orders.
The total number of OPVs in operation worldwide has increased from 776 to 839 in the last year, a growth rate of 8%. Around 87 countries now operate OPVs or have them on order. Asia has the largest proportion of the current fleet (46%) and the numbers on order (49%). Japan and India have 46% of the Asian vessels between them, while India alone has 25% of the total vessels on order worldwide.
