Since the operating conditions vary widely along different coasts, a wide range of ships are required. In general, coastal patrol military vessels are smaller than the large patrol vessels and operate within sight of land. However, some coastal patrol military vessels are capable of handling very rough conditions as well. Some of the latter are "large patrol boats" and are the exceptions generated by extremely rough coastal waters. Their speed is moderate to high. The armament is usually machine guns and small arms.
From combating piracy, smuggling and terrorism to smaller surface combatants capable of operating in littoral waters and equipped with advanced weapons and communication systems that enable these ships to perform multiple missions, the global coastal patrol military vessel market has witnessed a paradigm shift. This has also resulted in the continuous evolution of the role of coastal patrol military vessels. The changing trends have motivated manufacturers to develop vessels with strategic sea-lift and amphibious operations capabilities which enable the vessels to serve more than one role. Such smaller vessels are gaining popularity in countries with limited naval budgets as this enables them to maximize their buying power. In addition, defence budget cuts in major defence spending nations has also resulted in an increased demand for smaller multirole vessels.
It is estimated that the global coastal patrol military vessel market will be fuelled by high demand for cost-effective coastal security by governments of various regions and growing investment by emerging economies such as India and China. Given its need to maintain the minimum fleet size, the North American region is expected to grow at a steady pace over the forecast period. With ongoing budget cuts in major defence spending countries, the European region, however, is expected to register a decline over the forecast period. The market is, therefore, expected to display a significant increase over the forecast period.
