DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Submarine Air-Independent Propulsion (AIP) Systems Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The global submarine air-independent propulsion (AIP) systems market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 13.8% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Submarine Air-Independent Propulsion (AIP) Systems Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the development of second-generation submarine AIP batteries and fuel cells. Defense contractors for marine technologies are developing new-generation AIP systems to meet the evolving demands of naval forces. Currently, fuel cell-based AIP systems are the most efficient means to improve the submerged endurance of conventional-propulsion submarines. Therefore, defense contractors are focusing their innovation efforts in the development of next-generation fuel cells and associated batteries for the second-generation fuel cell-based AIP systems.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the enhancement in underwater endurance of non-nuclear submarines. While a non-nuclear submarine is submerged underwater, it uses the on-board batteries to power its propulsion systems and other on-board electrical systems. The average endurance of these batteries lasts for a week, after which the batteries need to be recharged by running its engines. To run the engines, the submarine requires contact with the surface atmosphere to intake fresh air and to vent out engine exhaust. This is done by snorkeling, where the submarine positions itself just below the surface of the water and exposes its air intake and exhaust systems to the atmosphere above the surface of the water.
