There are various classes of ships available with navy such as submarine, aircraft carriers, destroyers, littoral warships, amphibious warships, and support craft. Submarines operates under the sea and targets its enemy with the help of periscope and missiles. Submarines are of the best defense and offense ships available in the market.
Globally, the submarines market has been witnessing a relatively steady growth. Due to increase in differences between the neighboring countries such as China and Japan and India and Pakistan, the market for submarine is increasing. US is one of the highest investors in submarine to project force.
The global navy shipbuilding is also driven by the factors such as national security, territorial integrity and sovereign state. National security is a concept that a government, along with its parliament(s), should protect the state and its citizens against all kind of "national" crises through a variety of power projections, such as political power, diplomacy, economic power, military might, and so on. Whereas Territorial integrity is the principle under international law that nation-states should not attempt to promote secessionist movements or to promote border changes in other nation-states. Conversely it states that imposition by force of a border change is an act of aggression.
The capability of undersea warfare is one of the major driver of submarine market especially for the countries situated on the coastline.
Life span is one of the major drawback for submarines. The average lifespan is approximately 30 to 40 years. Most of the submarines are out of operation and requires huge investment in maintenance and it’s very risky to operate a submarines which is older than 30 to 35 years.
The report comprises of companies operating in the global submarines market such as Thales, Fincantieri, BAE System, DCNS, Huntington Ingalls Industries, Navantia, Wincaton, Finmeccanica, Northrop Grumman Corporation, General Atomics, Babcock, United Shipbuilding, Cochin Shipyard and others. Market players have been profiled in terms of attributes such as company overview, financial overview, business strategies, and recent developments.
Scope of the Report:
The submarine market is mainly divided according to the technology capabilities and it has been segmented as follows:
Based on Technology Type:
Air Independent power system
Missile Launching System
Radar Absorbent Material
Surveillance and Reconnaissance System
Based on Region:
Rest of the World
Recent Industry Trends:
Countries are improving its over-the-horizon (OTH) targeting capability with sky wave and surface wave OTH radars, which can be used in conjunction with reconnaissance satellites to locate targets at great distances.
Insight 1: With respect to conventional attack submarines, the Yuan-class (Type 039A), has air-independent power which significantly enhance its undersea warfare and strike capabilities.
Insight 2: China is building four improved variants” of the Type 093 Shang-class nuclear-powered attack submarine (SSN) to add to the two already deployed.
Insight 3: Over the next decade, China may construct a new Type 095 nuclear powered, guided-missile attack submarine (SSBN), which not only would improve the PLA Navy’s anti-surface warfare capability, but might also provide it with a more clandestine, land-attack option.
The quantitative and qualitative data collected for the submarine report is from a combination of secondary and primary sources. Research interviews were conducted with senior executives and/or mangers in the destroyer Industry. These Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) were then provided a questionnaire to gather quantitative and qualitative inputs on their operations, performance, strategies and views on the overall market, including key developments and technology trends. Data from interviews is consolidated, checked for consistency and accuracy, and the final market numbers are again validated by experts. The global market was split by product types and geography based on different factors like primary and secondary sources, understanding of the number of companies operating in each segment and also KOL insights.
To understand the trend in research and development of navy ship segments, and their priorities, the publisher undertook exploratory patent analysis to lay an initial foundation for future research on development and use of submarines. The exploratory analysis focused on identifying development related to technology of ships based systems, with an emphasis on certain technology parameters which intended to understand the roles that various countries sees for naval systems. In addition analyzing trends in development of ships system and exploring how countries could deploy these systems; and identifying areas for further research and potential future developments. The publisher has analyzed patents in several different parameters in navy ships segment technologies. The patent analysis has also helped us to deduce and map the futuristic technologies in most efficient way. The technology roadmap is developed using bottom-up approach. The technology roadmap is categorized in three parts i.e. short term (less than 10 years), medium term (from 10 to 20 years) and long term from (more than 20 years).
