Underwater Connectors Market Size, Trends & Forecast (2021 - 2026)

According to our latest research report, the Underwater Connectors market size is estimated at a decent growth in CAGR of 5.4% between the forecast period of 2021 - 2026.

Underwater connectors help to install and connecting the electrical or optical circuits underwater. These connectors help to terminate oil-filled hose or cables, which contains optical fibers or conductors of electricity.

Underwater connectors are being manufactured since the 1950s to facilitate SONAR networks through power cables by interconnecting them. Then with the technological advancements over the years, they have been developed as a thriving market, and there has also been an increase in the acquisition of patents. Underwater connectors are considered as one of the bridges to progress in industries like military and defense, oil and gas, oceanographic, and other industries, as they make it easier to conduct onshore and offshore testing, and manage cable assemblies. 

Driving Factors

Major factors that are boosting the economy of underwater connectors are increased number of manufacturing units equipped with high-end technologies, organized network of distribution, and rise in investments in industries like oil and gas, fish farming, and commercial purposes, high performance even under extreme weather conditions, and the increase in demand for energy across the world leading to rise in exploration activities of oil and gas.

Major Restraints

Significant challenges faced by the underwater connectors market are a reduction in the performance of offshore applications due to corrosion of materials, fracture of equipment due to pressure variation in between surfaces resulting in a low life span of the connectors, maintaining continuous power supply and connection while transferring data during severe environmental conditions. 

Potential Opportunities

  • The underwater market is consistently growing and expected to continue the trend over the forecast period with the emergence of a wide range of applications that are depending upon underwater connectors. 
  • Companies that are involved in this market are launching innovative and attractive products to increase their economy.

Recent developments:

  • A new underwater connector called SWIM by Souriau in the year 2018, which is applied under the water with depth up to 300 meters to carry out operations like maritime surveillance, oil exploration, weather buoys, and also for commercial purposes like scuba diving, deep-sea diving, snorkeling.  
  • Subsea Supplies manufactured cable assemblies and in particular, connectors using BURTON Subsea, which were licensed by the Eaton group in 2018. 
  • Hydra Group plc has launched rubber-molded subsea connectors with five variants in 2019, which are used in a wide range of applications.
  • SEACON’s launched rubber-molded connectors to meet the growing demands on these connectors in a variety of underwater applications.
