Market Definition

SONAR (Sound Navigation & Ranging) systems use sound waves to navigate, communicate, and locate lost or hazardous objects. They detect the sound waves reflected from objects & analyze the information they contain. There are two types of sonar systems, viz., passive & active. Passive sonars do not generate their own signals but listen to the sounds produced by other vessels. On the other hand, Active sonars listen to the echoes of acoustic waves they emit underwater. Hydrography, fishing, oil exploration activities, nautical charting, & marine observation are the prime applications of sonar systems used worldwide.

Market Insights

The Global Sonar System Market is projected to grow at around 10% CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. The growth of the market is driven primarily by the rapidly soaring defense budgets for building warships & deploying nuclear submarines as a part of military strategies on account of the rising number of terrorist acts worldwide.

Moreover, the growing utilization of sonars in preventive defense processes & Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), leading to the increasing development of advanced systems like Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) that generate high-resolution images, is also driving the global market.

Besides, consistent enhancements in Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and the surging demand for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) for commercial oil & gas exploration activities and military operations are other prominent aspects projecting significant growth opportunities for the global market in the coming years.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Sonar System Market

The advent of Covid-19 in 2020 had relatively low effects on the Global Sonar System Market. Across the commercial sector, the global crisis negatively influenced maritime trade in the initial phase and for a few months of 2021. However, trade levels entirely recuperated by the end of 2021, which projected an increased procurement of new cargo ships in the coming years.

On the other hand, the naval shipbuilding & sonar manufacturing industries were also affected due to supply chain problems in 2020, coupled with delayed deliveries of various components, parts, and systems equipped in naval vessels, but soon recovered since the demand for new naval vessels mostly remained unhampered amidst the pandemic. Hence, the overall impact of the pandemic on the Global Sonar System Market was somewhat low.

Market Segmentation:

Based on Product Type:

  • Hull Mounted Sonar
    • Forward Looking Sonar
    • Omni-Directional Sonar
    • Echosounders
  • Stern-Mounted Sonar
    • Variable Depth
    • Towed Array
    • Dipping Sonar
    • Sonobuoy

Amongst all product types, Hull mounted sonar systems held the largest share in the Global Sonar System Market in the previous years, and the same trend is likely during 2022-27. The surging requirements for forward-looking sonars in the defense vessel and the mounting inclination of defense forces globally toward enhancing their ASW capabilities are the prime aspects driving the demand for hull-mounted sonar systems in the global market.

A hull-mounted system comprises forward-looking sonars, echo sounders, & omnidirectional sonars. It is the primary underwater sensor of naval platforms, attached at the vessel's bottom, and used for detecting submarines, UUVs, divers, etc., performing tasks like anti-submarine warfare & seabed monitoring, but majorly for vessel traffic management to improve the efficiency of naval ships.

Nevertheless, rapid advancements in stealth technologies, owing to which underwater threats are becoming more challenging to detect, are infusing the need for multiple sensors & state-of-the-art sonar capabilities. As a result, it would further augment the market growth for hull-mounted sonars in the years to come.

Based on Application:

  • Defense
    • Port Security
    • Diver Detection
    • Mine Detection & Countermeasure Systems
    • Search & Rescue
  • Commercial
    • Fisheries
    • Hydrography
    • Navigation

Here, the defense application of sonar systems is projected to dominate the global market during 2022-27 since they are used extensively in naval warfare owing to their superior effectiveness against mines. Many firms are actively manufacturing sophisticated sonar systems like hull-mounted, diver detection, sonobuoys, etc., for the naval forces worldwide to suffice the mounting requirements for anti-submarine capabilities & sonar systems.

Additionally, the evolution of UUVs into feasible tools that can collect data to track enemy submarines at long ranges and reform the ASW using their advanced sensing capabilities is another crucial aspect driving the global market across the defense sector.

Moreover, numerous nations worldwide engaged in developing low-frequency sonars to precisely detect the presence of UUVs with lower acoustic signature levels shall also augment the demand for new & advanced sonar systems for the defense sector and, as a result, would boost the market in the coming years.

Regional Landscape

Geographically, the Global Sonar System Market expands across:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • South America
  • Middle East & Africa
  • Asia-Pacific

Of all countries globally, Asia-Pacific is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the Sonar System Market during 2022-27, primarily due to the increased expenditure of several countries in the region on their respective naval sectors, mounting production of domestic ships across China & South Korea, and the region's enormous water bodies. Across Asia-Pacific, Japan is experiencing rising deliveries of commercial ship systems, and various shipbuilding players in South Korea are integrating automation into their ships. These are other crucial factors projected to drive the regional market over the forecast years.

The Asia-Pacific's geopolitical situation has made it a hub for armed standoffs & unforeseen quarrels, which, in turn, has compelled many countries in the region to acquire new naval vessels while upgrading the existing ones. China and several other countries are massively investing in expanding their Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) capabilities to improve their situational cognition in the sea. Hence, these aspects project a remarkable growth for the Sonar System Market in Asia-Pacific through 2027.
