A submarine houses a wide-ranging array of sensors consisting of a group of active and passive sonars for target detection. Active sonar sensors record noticeable pings to create echoes that helps in revealing objects around the submarine. However while doing so active sonars can at the same time reveal the submarine’s presence to the enemies. Therefore, the use of sonars is increasingly becoming unpopular among naval forces. The passive sonar sensors comprise of a set of different and sensitive hydrophones that are integrated into the trailed in a towed array.
One of the primary driving factor of submarine sensors market is due to the increasing deployment of attack submarines. Submarines are the most effective instrument which is capable of destroying a target like land based and naval based military assets from far locations. The modern submarines are employed to release a barrage of nuclear weapons against land based or naval based enemy targets. Moreover, they are capable of countering emery submarines or any other submerged platforms.
Another important driver of this market is the advancement of electromagnetic and acoustic sensors. Electromagnetic sensors submissively scan the radio frequency spectrum from hostile forces for intentional electronic transmissions. These electronic emissions originate from land sites, ships, and aircraft. Advancement in these sensors is likely to help the submarines to detect objects accurately. It is likely to help in monitoring non-radiating aircraft in the operational areas while remaining electromagnetically silent themselves. The electromagnetic signals are scattered by the aircraft which can be received by the existing antennas of the submarines which allows the submarines to detect the speed and position of the aircraft. Collaborative efforts and technology transfer is also fuelling the growth of the submarine sensors market globally.
The market is challenged due to retrofitting costs and high maintenance. The growing geopolitical conflicts and maritime disputes require the defense agencies to upgrade their fleet of submarines with ballistic missile defense capabilities by making high investments. Such situations force them to institute improved maintenance standards for their existing fleet of submarines.
Data breaching due to cyber wars is restraining the growth of submarine sensors market globally during the forecast period. Advancement in technology has also led to the increasing cyber security which is one of the major restraining factor in this market. Due to the risk of cyber security, prone to data breaching has increased. Any obsolete technology and hardware used can led to data breaching that is likely to cause fatality.
One of the major opportunities in the global submarine sensors market is Ohioclass submarine replacement program. Ohio class submarines are the nuclear powered submarines that are used by the U.S. navy. Countries like U.K., U.S., Germany, India and France are likely to replace their existing military submarines since they have the high military expenditure. The replacement of vessels is likely to result in greater investments that would support the addition of high-quality missiles, launch systems and navigational payloads. Moreover, growing investments in undersea warfare capabilities is also acting as an important opportunities in the global submarine sensor market.
The global submarine sensors market based on types is bifurcated into SSKdiesel electric submarine sensors, SSNnuclear attack submarine sensors and SSBNballistic missile submarine sensors. Based on regional split, the market is bifurcated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
Some of the major players in the global cluster munitions market comprise ATLAS ELEKTRONIK, Harris, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, DRS Technologies, Ducommun, L3 KEO, Safran Electronics & Defense and Raytheon among others. To withstand themselves in the extremely competitive environment, key companies are offering high-quality and cost-effective sensors for submarines. Due to the huge demand of advanced military submarines, growth opportunities has increased for the key market players across the world.
