Undersea Warfare Systems Market By System Type (Detection Systems, Weapons, Communication Systems, Counter Measure Systems) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Published: Dec 2017 | Report Code: 58877-12-17

The defense sector has always been a front-runner in adoption of advanced defense technologies. Embracing latest technologies not only helps various countries to reduce fatalities but also to gain a competitive edge over other countries. The undersea warfare space has witnessed drastic technological developments in the recent past. Technologies which were earlier just prototypes have now been turned into actual defense systems. With evolution of combat technologies, countermeasure systems too have evolved in defense sector. Amongst these, sonar has been one of the most remarkable areas witnessing attention from numerous manufacturers and R&D agencies.

Growing disputes between countries over maritime borders is one of the primary factors driving undersea warfare systems market growth. The magnitude of these conflicts can be understood from the fact that out of over 500 potential maritime boundaries, less than half of them have been agreed upon. This have created an environment of uncertainty and further created the possibility for disputes. Some of the recent instances of maritime border disputes include:

  • Kenya and Somalia
  • Australia and Timor-Leste
  • South China Sea dispute

These growing tensions have resulted in various countries to invest heavily in acquiring the latest of undersea warfare systems, thus spurring the market growth. Moreover, defense modernization programs is another important factor driving the undersea warfare systems market growth. Countries such as the U.S., Germany, the U.K and China have been consistent in spending over modernization of their navies. This is expected to continue having positive impact on undersea warfare systems market in the following years.

Their contribution to the global undersea warfare systems market in 2016 is as shown in the figure below:

Undersea Warfare Systems Market

In 2016, detection systems segment led the overall undersea warfare systems market worldwide. The segment contributed to more than 45% of the total market value, in 2016. Detection systems such as Sonars, which are widely used to detect objects on or under the water surface, have gained substantial attention from manufacturers. Its use in undersea warfare is expected to rise drastically in coming years owing to the vital role it plays in alarming naval forces about enemy submarines or weapons. Manufacturers are investing substantial amount of money towards R&D activities for advanced detection systems. Some of the R&D efforts are directed towards increasing the range and reliability of sonars. For instance, recently, Thales Australia was awarded a contract from Australian Government to develop sonar systems with improved signal processing systems for the Collins submarines.

Weapons segment follow detection systems segment, in terms of value. Torpedoes are one of the most used undersea weapons. Technological advancements in recent years have resulted in their increased destruction capability and speed. Moreover, modern generation torpedoes are lightweight and capable of covering a larger distance. Government organizations and defense agencies have been investing heavily in manufacturing and development of advanced and efficient undersea weaponries.

Based on the geography, the global undersea warfare systems market is segmented as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Russia
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Korea
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • Middle East & Africa (MEA)
    • Latin America

Undersea Warfare Systems Market

North America dominated the global undersea warfare systems market in 2016 and accounted for more than 40% of the overall market value generated worldwide. The dominance of the region is mostly due to highly advanced defense sector coupled with heavy expenditure in the U.S. The country has enjoyed status of the world’s only hyper power for nearly a generation and has always embraced the most advanced and latest technologies. This factor is complimented by the fact that the U.S. has the largest defense budget in the world. Some of the largest undersea warfare system companies such as Northrup Grumman Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation and Textron, Inc. are headquartered in the region, thereby supporting the market growth here. 

Asia Pacific is another important undersea warfare systems market and is expected to witness a high growth during the forecast period. China accounts for the largest market size in the region owing to its huge defense budget. The defense budget of the country grew by 7% in 2017 over 2016. A significant portion of this budget is allocated towards the advancement of naval technologies. Moreover, in recent years, China has had maritime disputes with several countries on claims over the East and South China Seas. This has led to higher attention towards developing naval systems. Other prominent markets for undersea warfare systems include India, Japan and South Korea among others.
