Market Overview

The global sonobuoy market is anticipated to witness considerable growth during forecast period. North America is projected to be prominent region for sonobuoy market due to presence of key manufacturers such as General Dynamics Corporation, Sparton, and Lockheed Martin Corporation. Europe held second-largest share of global sonobuoy market in 2010. Growing investments in the research to conduct the underwater acoustic surveillance in regions such as Asia-Pacific and Middle East are predictable to drive growth of global sonobuoy market in coming years.  Furthermore, naval modernization programs are driving the market growth in the Asia-Pacific. The rising demand for submarines and increase in industrial applications of the sonobuoys are key drivers for growth of global sonobuoy market. Additionally, 2020, COVID 19 pandemic is further expected to create vital impact on the market.

Segment Overview

The active sonobuoys segment is anticipated to command the major market share of global sonobuoy market, by type, during forecast period. Active sonobuoys produce soundwaves that redirect off objects in water. They are utlilized to identify quiet diesel submarines or the submarines in attack mode. Active sonobuoys are similarly used in the command activated sonobuoy systems and the DICASS (i.e. Directional Command Activated Sonobuoy Systems). The active segment accounted for the larger market share of over 60% in 2019, with market value of over USD 250.0 million.

Regional Overview

The global market has been divided, by region, into Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East & Africa (MEA), and Latin America. In North America, a rise in investments in the environmental research by the 2035 is anticipated to create the opportunities for players in the market. Naval innovation efforts and building of naval capabilities, including use for submarine detection, are motivating market growth in the region.

Competitor overview

In Dec 2018, Lockheed Martin signed contract with ERAPSCO, Inc. to supply and manufacture advanced sonobuoys to U.S. Navy.

In Oct 2018, the General Dynamics Corporation-Canada, subsidiary of the General Dynamics Corporation, signed contract to deliver significant anti-submarine warfare upgrade for Royal Canadian Navy product 12 Halifax-class frigates.

In Oct 2018, Thales Group launched sonobuoy called SonoFlash, which combines powerful emitter and high-performance and the low-frequency passive sensor.

In Aug 2018, Sparton signed contract with the Ultra Electronics Group to provide sonobuoys to U.S. Navy.
