SONAR Systems Market Share, Size, and Forecast 2026:

SONAR Systems Market was worth US$ xx million in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ xx million by the end of 2026, growing at an annual compound rate of 8.1% between 2021 and 2026.

SONAR stands for Sound Navigation and Ranging, a technique used to detect objects above or below the surface of the water. It can be used for a variety of applications, such as military, commercial, scientific, fishing, hydrology, underwater warfare, and threat detection mines. SONAR systems are also used for robotic navigation and atmospheric navigation. They use very high acoustic frequencies. The side scan and the multi-beam SONAR are cutting-edge technologies that help in detailed mapping and obtaining seabed images.

SONAR Systems Market Recent Developments and Trends:

In 2017, Raytheon signed a US$ 28 million contract from the US Navy to supply variable depth SONAR to the battle class on the battlefield.

In 2018, Kongsberg Gruppen signed an agreement to supply five autonomous HUGIN water vehicle systems from Ocean Infinity.

In June 2019, the experts of the Atlantic Underwater War (ASW) of the US Navy. They ordered a trailer surface ship probe system to help warships track silent enemy submarines on different sea beds.

In July 2018, the Navy ordered a TB-29X Advanced Tow Array probe system for the US Navy submarine, from L-3 Chesapeake Sciences Corp.

In 2016, Lockheed Martin Corporation announced that it would provide the US Navy at $ 425 million contracts to offer the latest advances in SONAR systems for guidance and control systems for MK 48 Mod 7 torpedoes.

In 2018, the Indian Navy announced that it would receive six low-frequency active traction matrix (ACTAS) SONAR systems from Germany, which would be installed in the new Kamorta-class Corvette.

In 2019, Ultra Electronics Maritime Systems announced that it would build and integrate low-frequency active and passive traction array SONAR systems and next-generation hull-mounted SONAR mounted on future Canadian surface combat ships (CSC).

SONAR Systems Market Growth:

The main factors driving market expansion are the growing number of maritime trade activities worldwide, the increasing demand for shipowners to comply with maritime safety standards, and the burgeoning marine tourism sector.

SONAR Systems Market Drivers:

Governments and large corporations are investing heavily in this new technology, which could lead to the growth of the SONAR systems market. Innovation is expected to continue in the synthetic opening SONAR leads the market to improve the quality of resolution for complementary applications and achieve several contracts. Some of the critical factors affecting the market are advances in underwater combat technology, the development of digital signal processing that has improved the handling and communications underwater, the growing demand for Sonobu in operations of tactical defense and active development. The increase in investment in research, the use of unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), and the acquisition in recent years have greatly improved the market. UUV has become a platform for many commercial and military applications, including surveillance and mining measures. This is likely to stimulate the SONAR systems market in the future.
