The sonobuoy market refers to the market for the various types of sonobuoys used for underwater acoustic sensing and monitoring. A sonobuoy is a device that is used to detect and locate underwater sounds, such as those produced by ships, submarines, marine mammals, and other sources. Sonobuoys typically consist of a hydrophone (an underwater microphone), a radio transmitter, and a battery, and can be deployed from aircraft, ships, or other platforms.
The sonobuoy market is driven by various factors, including increased maritime security concerns, growing demand for oil and gas exploration, and the need for underwater surveillance in defense and military applications. The market is also driven by advancements in technology, including the development of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and other underwater sensing technologies.
Sonobuoys are an important component of anti-submarine warfare (ASW) solutions used by countries' naval and military forces. Due to this, the primary customers of this technology are governments and the military.
Factors that influence the purchase of sonobuoys are the defence budget of the country, the marine area under its control, and potential threats they may face from countries with which it has unstable relations. Although defence is the primary sector that invests in sonobuoys, marine research and various underwater infrastructure, such as underwater data centers, can act as potential market drivers for the sonobuoy market.
- In April 2021, Elbit America, the American branch of Israel weapon manufacturer, Elbit systems, acquired Sparton that is a supplier of sonobouys to the US Navy. The acquisition will allow Elbit America to improve its presence with the US customers and improve its product offerings.
- In March 2021, Thales group was approached by the French government defence agency for the manufacture and dispatch of SonoFlash the sonobuoys developed by Thales group, the sonobuoy is an active/passive sonobuoy and the French Navy requires it for their anti-submarine warfare (ASW).
