Sonar Systems Market to be dominated by Hull-mounted Sonar through 2027

Advancements in sensor technology and growing demand for seaborne trade activities are expected to drive the demand for global sonar systems market in the forecast period, 2023-2027.

According to TechSci Research report, Sonar Systems Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2017-2027, the global sonar systems market is anticipated to witness impressive growth in the forecast period, 2023-2027. Sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) can be defined as a technique that uses sound waves for navigating, detecting lost or hazardous objects, and communication purposes. It sends the sound waves reflected from objects and detected by the sonar systems. Sonar systems find applications in nautical charting activities, oil exploration, fishing, hydrography, and marine observation activities.

The major factors driving the growth of global sonar systems marker are rapidly expanding naval fleet by modernization of the existing fleet and purchase of new ships and submarines. Also, the increased demand for sonobuoy for tactical purposes influences market demand. They use an advanced transducer and a radio transmitter to transmit and record underwater sounds. Advanced sonobuoys can provide additional information about water temperature and wave height, which is the major reason for their high sales among the end-users.

However, concerns regarding the adverse effect of the sonar system on marine animals may restrain the growth of the global sonar systems market in the forecast period.

The global sonar systems market is segmented into product, installation, platform., application, regional distribution, and competitive landscape.

Based on product, the market is divided into hull-mounted sonar, stern-mounted sonar, dipping sonar, and sonobuoy. Hull-mounted sonar is expected to hold the largest market share in the forecast period. They are the most commonly used sonars, and they are attached to the bottom of the vessel. The hull-mounted sonars can be used to perform different tasks like fish finding, anti-submarine warfare, seabed monitoring, and diver detection. They can be classified into omnidirectional sonar, forward-looking sonar, and echo sounders.

Based on the installation, the market is bifurcated into fixed and deployable. Deployable sonars are expected to capture the highest market share in the next five years. Deployable sonar is dopped via aircraft into water or dip, and they can be dropped from an altitude of 30,000 feet. It uses radio transmitters and transducers to detect, record, and convey underwater convoys.

Based on the platform, the market is divided into commercial vessels, defense vessels, unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), aircrafts, and ports. Commercial vessels are expected to capture the highest market share over the next five years. The naval sonars are capable of operating both in active and passive conditions. Sonars do not transmit signals as they act as listening signals. The passive operating mode can identify enemy ships and animals in the ocean as they can maintain stealth and secrecy during the operations.

Based on application, the market is divided into anti-submarine warfare, port security, mine detection & countermeasure systems, search & rescue, navigation, diver detection, and others. Anti-submarine warfare applications are expected to witness the fastest incremental growth in the forecast period. Anti-submarine warfare employs the use of surface warships to locate, track and destroy enemy submarines. With the launch of advanced anti-submarine, the detecting capability is improving, boosting their sales among the end-users.

Major market players operating in the global sonar systems market are:

·         Aselsan AS

·         Sonardyne International Ltd

·         Ultra Electronics Holdings

·         Northrop Grumman Corporation

·         ThyssenKrupp AG

·         Western Marine Electronics Inc.

·         Lockheed Martin Corporation
