Sonar Systems Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Market Overview:

The global sonar systems market reached a value of US$ 3.74 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

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.

Global Sonar Systems Market Drivers:

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.

Key Question Answered in this Report

The global sonar systems market was valued at US$ 3.74 Billion in 2020. 

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 currently driving the global sonar systems market. 

Sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had led to the implementation of stringent lockdown regulations across several nations resulting in temporary closure of numerous manufacturing units pertaining to sonar systems.

Based on the mode of operation, the global sonar systems market can be segmented into active, passive, and active cum passive. Currently, active 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, where hull mounted sonar currently represents the largest segment.

Based on the installation, the global sonar systems market can be categorized into vessel mounted, airborne, towed, UUV, hand-held and pole mounted, and others. Currently, vessel mounted exhibits a clear dominance in the market.

Based on the application, the global sonar systems market can be segmented into military, hydrographic charting, offshore oil and gas, port and harbor management, coastal engineering, and others. Among these, hydrographic charting currently represents the largest segment.

On a regional level, the market has been classified into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa, where North America 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, and JRC.
