Global Sonobuoy Market Report 2022: Significant Growth in Marine Industry Fuel Supply Sector – | New

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 4, 2022–

The “Sound Buoys Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunities, and Forecasts 2022-2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The global sonobuoy market size reached US$440 million in 2021. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach US$609 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 5 .57% in 2021-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we continuously monitor and assess the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use sectors. This information is included in the report as a major market contributor.

A sonobuoy refers to a portable sonar system used to track underwater objects and conduct research. It consists of a radio transmitter and hydrophones to transmit in ultra-high frequency (UHF). Sonobuoys are launched into the ocean by aircraft and ships for maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare applications.

Some of the common types of sonobuoys include passive, active, multistatic, bathythermograph, and DIFAR (Differential Acoustic Frequency Analysis and Reading) buoys. They transmit sound waves to the seabed, which are reflected off the buoy, and help detect the presence of other submarines within range to prevent potential attacks.

The significant growth in the maritime industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive market outlook. Furthermore, increasing adoption of sonobuoys to detect the presence of other submarines and monitor underwater seismic waves is also driving the growth of the market. Sonobuoys also find many applications in the oil and gas industry, where they are used to map the composition of seabed layers to identify salt domes and oil deposits.

This, along with various technological advancements, such as the use of advanced sensing, range, and direction capabilities, acts as another growth driver. Active sonobuoys are incorporated with radio transducers, receivers and advanced acoustic detection systems to improve operational efficiency. Other factors including rising defense spending and growing adoption of unmanned underwater vehicles are expected to further drive the market.
