Sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) refers to a technique which employs sound waves for navigating, communicating, and detecting lost or hazardous objects. The sound waves are reflected from the objects and are detected by sonar systems which analyse the information contained in them. Sonar systems are generally divided into passive and active sonar. Active sonar systems emit acoustic waves into the water and listen to their echoes underwater, whereas, passive sonars do not generate their own signals and listen to the sounds produced by other vessels. Nowadays, sonar systems are widely used for fishing, hydrography, oil exploration, marine observation and nautical charting activities.
On account of the rising number of terrorist attacks, governments across the globe are increasing their defence budgets for building warships and deploying nuclear submarines as a part of their military strategies. Moreover, the growing applications of sonar systems in preventive defence processes and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) have boosted their demand across the globe. In line with this, advanced systems are being developed, such as synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) which produces higher resolution images. In addition, consistent enhancements in the arena of autonomous underwater vehicles and rising demand for unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) for commercial exploration of oil and gas are also anticipated to bolster the growth of the market.

The global sonar systems market was valued at US$ 4.7 Billion in 2021.
We expect the global sonar systems market to exhibit a CAGR of 1.9% during 2022-2027.
The rising adoption of sonar systems as a surveillance technique in naval ships and submarines for
facilitating underwater communications as well as detecting and tracking enemy vessels and torpedoes,
is primarily driving the global sonar systems market.
The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had led to the implementation of stringent lockdown
regulations across several nations, resulting in the temporary closure of numerous manufacturing units
for sonar systems.
Based on the mode of operation, the global sonar systems market can be bifurcated into active, passive,
and active cum passive. Among these, passive mode holds the majority of the total market share.
Based on the product type, the global sonar systems market has been segregated into hull mounted
sonar, towed array sonar, sonobuoys, dipping sonar, and driver detection sonar. Currently, hull mounted
sonar represents the largest market share.
Based on the installation, the global sonar systems market can be divided into vessel mounted, airborne,
towed, UUV, hand-held and pole mounted, and others. Among these, airborne installation accounts for
the majority of the global market share.
Based on the type, the global sonar systems market has been categorized into multi beam, side scan,
single beam, and synthetic aperture. Currently, multi beam exhibits a clear dominance in the market.
Based on the application, the global sonar systems market can be bifurcated into military, hydrographic
charting, offshore oil and gas, port and harbor management, coastal engineering, and others. Among
these, the military sector currently represents the largest market share.
On a regional level, the market has been classified into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin
America, and Middle East and Africa, where Asia Pacific currently dominates the global market.
Some of the major players in the global sonar systems market include Raytheon, Lockheed Martin,
Thales, Kongsberg Gruppen, Ultra Electronics, L3 Technologies, Teledyne, Sonardyne, Atlas Elektronik,
Furuno, Navico, JRC, etc.
