LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global unmanned sea systems market report. This research report also lists seven other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

As the modern warfare has evolved in the form of more asymmetric in nature, the defense agencies across the globe are required to incorporate advanced and effective surveillance and counter-strike mechanism. Thus, unmanned sea systems are largely being used in the current tactical missions. Most of the unmanned sea systems used presently are capable of undertaking highly autonomous operations. This is because these systems themselves have the onboard intelligence to ensure real-time adjustments to the mission parameters, based on new information and/or changing conditions. The market for unmanned sea systems is anticipated to propel a steady rate in the next five years.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global unmanned sea systems market is highly competitive with the presence of many vendors. The market vendors compete in terms of cost, product quality, reliability, and aftermarket service. On the changing nature of undersea warfare, vendors are required to provide cost-effective and high-quality sensors for submarines, which can help them survive and succeed in an intensely competitive environment.

Merger and acquisition activities, along with increased collaboration with alliance partners around the world, is expected to drive the global unmanned sea systems market during the forecast period,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense research analyst from Technavio.

Government organizations, like the US DoD and the UK MoD, serve as certification bodies and encourage the development of underwater vehicles and their electronic components. As a result, vendors also invest in creating advanced, cost-efficient, and effective unmanned sea systems.
