Learn how the Blue Economy will develop
Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm

The ocean is the lifeblood of a wide variety of industries and will undergo extensive transformations in the coming decades. 

At this free online event, you will get the highlights from DNV’s new report Ocean’s Future to 2050 and hear from our panel of industry and ocean experts.

The report provides a comprehensive overview of how the blue economy will develop over the coming decades, including: 

  • Oil and gas is the dominant ocean-based industry today, but offshore wind will take over that position in just three decades. 
  • Aquaculture production will more than double and approach the level of wild catch
  • There will be an enormous growth in demand for space in the ocean, leading to fierce competition and pressure on ocean ecosystems
  • Greater China will establish itself as the global powerhouse for ocean industry
