Global Sonar Systems Market to 2024 – Growing Applications in Preventive Defense Processes and Anti-Submarine Warfare

DUBLIN, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The “Sonar Systems Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024” report has been added to’s offering.

The global sonar systems market was worth US$ 4.2 Billion in 2018

Sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) refers to a technique which employs sound waves for navigating, communicating, and detecting lost or hazardous objects. The sound waves are reflected from the objects and are detected by sonar systems which analyze the information contained in them. Sonar systems are generally divided into passive and active sonar.

Active sonar systems emit acoustic waves into the water and listen to their echoes underwater, whereas, passive sonars do not generate their own signals and listen to the sounds produced by other vessels. Nowadays, sonar systems are widely used for fishing, hydrography, oil exploration, marine observation and nautical charting activities.

Global Sonar Systems Market Drivers:

On account of the rising number of terrorist attacks, governments across the globe are increasing their defense budgets for building warships and deploying nuclear submarines as a part of their military strategies. Moreover, the growing applications of sonar systems in preventive defense processes and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) have boosted their demand across the globe.

In line with this, advanced systems are being developed, such as synthetic aperture sonar (SAS) which produces higher resolution images. In addition, consistent enhancements in the arena of autonomous underwater vehicles and rising demand for unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) for commercial exploration of oil and gas are also anticipated to bolster the growth of the market.

Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 5.3 Billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of around 4% during 2019-2024.
