Summary/Abstract: The most crucial strategic mode of transport for world trade is the sea. Shortly, it will be inevitable to think of space as an endless ocean. The concept will change sea power theories and also controlling methods of main seaborne trade routes. Establishing area dominance in any part of the world geography will only keep sea control as in the past. The imbalance between the countries' military capacity and their foreign trade volume changes the maritime strategies to be implemented. A long time has passed since Mahan's famous “influence of sea power” strategy. Therefore, it will no longer be possible to maintain classical naval doctrines. As innovative marine technologies industrialized, the capacity of maritime trade will be increased simultaneously. However, these conversions brought up new hybrid alliances and changed the dominant actors of sea control. The articulation of the space economy to the maritime trade will bring all aspects of geopolitical factors and changed the main shipping lanes. The term geopolitics has been defined in three different meanings in The Dictionary of Turkish Language Association (Turkish: Türk Dil Kurumu, TDK)
