In 2020, detection systems segment led the overall undersea warfare systems market worldwide. The segment contributed to more than 45% of the total market value, in 2020. Detection systems such as Sonars, which are widely used to detect objects on or under the water surface, have gained substantial attention from manufacturers. Its use in undersea warfare is expected to rise drastically in coming years owing to the vital role it plays in alarming naval forces about enemy submarines or weapons. Manufacturers are investing substantial amount of money towards R&D activities for advanced detection systems. Some of the R&D efforts are directed towards increasing the range and reliability of sonars. For instance, recently, Thales Australia was awarded a contract from Australian Government to develop sonar systems with improved signal processing systems for the Collins submarines.

Weapons segment follow detection systems segment, in terms of value. Torpedoes are one of the most used undersea weapons. Technological advancements in recent years have resulted in their increased destruction capability and speed. Moreover, modern generation torpedoes are lightweight and capable of covering a larger distance. Government organizations and defense agencies have been investing heavily in manufacturing and development of advanced and efficient undersea weaponries.

North America dominated the global undersea warfare systems market in 2020 and accounted for more than 40% of the overall market value generated worldwide. The dominance of the region is mostly due to highly advanced defense sector coupled with heavy expenditure in the U.S. The country has enjoyed status of the world’s only hyper power for nearly a generation and has always embraced the most advanced and latest technologies. This factor is complimented by the fact that the U.S. has the largest defense budget in the world. Some of the largest undersea warfare system companies such as Northrup Grumman Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation and Textron, Inc. are headquartered in the region, thereby supporting the market growth here. 

Asia Pacific is another important undersea warfare systems market and is expected to witness a high growth during the forecast period. China accounts for the largest market size in the region owing to its huge defense budget. The defense budget of the country grew by 7% in 2021 over 2020. A significant portion of this budget is allocated towards the advancement of naval technologies. Moreover, in recent years, China has had maritime disputes with several countries on claims over the East and South China Seas. This has led to higher attention towards developing naval systems. Other prominent markets for undersea warfare systems include India, Japan and South Korea among others.
