It describes the market size of the SONAR systems and technology market during the next six years, and covers the market share of different sub-sectors for each region.

SONARs are used for variety of commercial, military, and scientific applications such as hydrography, fisheries, anti-submarine warfare, underwater mines and threat detection and torpedo defense systems but integrated SONAR system, countermeasures, airborne processing and sonobuoy are major defined offerings from the system providers. Enhancement in anti-submarine warfare techniques, advancement in active and passive SONAR technologies, and rising demand for sonobuoy in tactical defense operations are some important factors which are expected to drive the growth of this market in the forecast period.

The increasing underwater threat in major oceans across the world has led to increase in investment through technologies for the development of more efficient SONAR systems. Until recently, side scan and multi-beam SONARs have been the leading technology for detailed mapping and imaging of the seabed. However, the market for Synthetic Aperture Sonars (SAS) which provides ultra-high image resolution combined with very efficient area coverage rates is expected to show phenomenon growth in near future.
