LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors for the global sonobuoy market in their latest research report. This report also lists three other prominent vendors who are expected to contribute to this market’s growth over the forecast period.

Request sample report:

“The US Navy is the largest investor in the procurement of unmanned underwater vehicles, ASW systems, and acquisition of sonobuoys for marine mammal research. It also spends extensively on tracking hostile submarine movement to counter unseen threats in the ocean. However, ongoing naval border disputes in the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean have raised concerns over the deployment of anti-submarine and naval warfare systems. Deployment of sonobuoys will be a viable option to counter such maritime threats,” said Abhay Singh, one of Technavio’s lead analysts for defense.

“End-users of the global sonobuoy market are shifting their focus from quantity to quality. There is also an increased emphasis on cost-efficiency in military operations and emerging markets in APAC and the Middle East. Western military forces are looking for high-end, modernized weapons and are upgrading their defense systems,” added Abhay.
