Major benefits (economic impact) of maritime activities could be broken down into direct and indirect effects.
- Direct effect considers the economic activity and jobs generated directly by the cluster.
- Indirect effects include the jobs and demand created up and down the supply chain, as well as the consumption generated in the rest of the economy.
Thus, the value and demand generated in the clusters trickles down through the overall economy to create further jobs and demand, making the combined economic importance of an even greater nature than simply direct activities. This has led to the realization that the full economic significance of maritime activities is not the jobs at sea, but rather the derived employment and economic activities on shore. Further it enhances the competitiveness and growth in local maritime economy.
