Aircraft underwater location beacon (also known as acoustic beacon) is a device that is incorporated into aircraft recorders of aircraft avionics. In certain cases, the aircraft underwater location beacon is also attached to the fuselage of the airplane. Its main purpose is to emanate ultrasonic signals when the aircraft suddenly crashes into a water body. There are two independent and different units of data stereos for an airplane. The flight data recorders monitor many parameters of the flight such as altitude, heading, and position of rudders and elevators.

One of the drivers of growth of the aircraft underwater location beacon market is growing appropriation of new generation aircrafts. In the coming years, air travel is predicted to rise double due to the increase in flights in key countries like India, China, Russia, the U.S. and Indonesia. The year-on-year rise in air traffic has also mandated the initiation of new aircrafts, leading to further rising demand for underwater location beacons. It is expected that a huge section of newer generation aircraft would necessitate the combination of new generation aircraft underwater location beacons to comply with aviation procedures. One of the developments in the market is growth of beacons with combined pressure sensor. A pressure sensor in an aircraft underwater location beacon is used to measure the water pressure of a collapsed aircraft. This sensor can measure the depth of water as the pressure reading in an aircraft underwater location beacon is directly proportional to the underwater depth of the beacon. The combination of a pressure sensor is likely to improve the performance of battery in an aircraft underwater location beacon. The newly designed underwater location beacon includes a processor, pressure sensor, water button, aquatic pulse transmitter, and battery. In the event of an aircraft crash in water, the water button gets activated, and the battery sends power to the pulse generator to generate an acoustic pulse periodically. One challenge in the market is delays in scheduled aircraft delivery. Aircraft manufacturers face several development challenges while keeping step with the market competition. The delivery and order cycles for companies have been irregular for the past decade with the rise in orders, even though the aerospace manufacturer has touched maturity. The manufacturing process in the aircraft industry is evolutionary as compared to other fields such as biotechnology, where machinery is highly advanced. This leads to an increase in the lead time for manufacturers, affecting the overall supply chain and causing delays in the procurement process of sub-component manufacturers.

The aircraft underwater location beacon market can be segmented on the basis of aircraft type, end user, and region. By aircraft type, the market is segmented into commercial aircraft, military aircraft, and helicopters. Military aircraft can be further subdivided into combat aircraft and non-combat aircraft.  Among various aircraft types, the aircraft underwater location beacon is adopted primarily in military aircrafts and commercial aircrafts due to risk factors associated with air crashes (required for detecting the aircraft from sea or river). By end user, the market is segmented as military aviation, civil aviation, merchant navy, and marine defense. Furthermore, the aircraft underwater location beacon market can also be studied according to regional bifurcations such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. The commercial aircraft segment is seeing highest growth rate in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa due to strong growth in tourism industry. This has made the Asia Pacific one of the attractive regions for new and existing vendors in the market.

Many players are active in the aircraft underwater location beacon market with extensive solution portfolios. Some of major players active in the market include , Dukane Seacom, Novega GmbH, L3 Technologies, Inc, Radiant Power Corp, Ocean Innovations, InterTrade, (Rockwell Collins Company), Satair Group, Teledyne Benthos, Benthowave Instrument, and so on.
