Sound navigation and ranging, also known as SONAR, is a method or device for detecting and locating objects especially underwater by means of sound waves sent out to be reflected by the objects. Globally, SONAR systems are used in a wide range of applications ranging from commercial to military applications. Advancements in digital signal processing has improved underwater SONAR signal processing and communication along with the usage of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) over the past decade are some of the key growth factors which are expected to drive the demand for SONAR systems during the period of study.
Geographically, North America dominated the SONAR systems market driven by higher demand and consumption SONAR systems in a wide range of applications by end-users in the region. North America was followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe as second and third largest market for SONAR systems market. Asia Pacific is projected to have the fastest growth, owing to a rapidly expanding end-use industrial base in the region especially in developing nations such as China and India.
