Key Trends in the Market

Sonar system, also known as sound navigation and ranging, refers to a method of the identifying objects located in the environment and analysing their distance and direction. Typically, sonar systems comprise of transmitters, numerous omnidirectional sensors, and receivers. In the sonar system, the transmitter emits sound waves which are then measured and recorded by the sensors and receivers. Objects in the environment, such as in the air or on or under water, reflect sound waves differently, enabling accurate tracking of objects and their location. 

 

  • The global sonar system market growth is being propelled by the increasing investments aimed towards the development of modern sonar systems equipped with artificial intelligence and acoustic layers, which are expected to improve the efficiency of the systems.
  • The increasing application of sonar systems for search and rescue, security and surveillance, and navigation for deep sea exploration activities, is further propelling their demand.
  • The increasing demand for sonar systems for anti-submarine warfare and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), owing to the growing geopolitical tensions and increasing naval expenditure of the sovereign military powers are expected to accelerate the growth of sonar system market.

Market Share by Platform

The defence vessels segment, based on platform, holds a significant share in the sonar system market. Sonar equipment are gaining traction in warships and submarines to facilitate safe underwater navigation, especially in disputed territories. The increasing importance of sonar systems in modern warfare, amidst the escalating geopolitical stress, is leading to an increased demand for sonar technology. In addition, technical upgradations in sonar systems, including the induction of hydrophones and advanced radio communication with reduced self-noise, are bolstering the applications of sonar systems in defence vessels. Over the forecast period, the increasing emphasis by the governments of emerging sovereign military superpowers such as India, are leading to a robust development of new sonar system capabilities. 

 

Market Share by Application

Search and rescue applications account for a decent share in the sonar system market. Sonar systems are fully capable of detecting humans, animals, or objects inside the deep-water areas where turbid waters reduce visibility for high-resolution cameras. It provides great support to police, rescue teams, and naval forces. 

 

Meanwhile, the anti-submarine warfare segment is expected to witness a steady growth in the forecast period as the proliferation of defence vessels deployed in contested waters increases. Major submarine manufacturers are investing in upgrading sonar systems with special components such as advanced soft acoustic layers and artificial intelligence (AI).
