With the surge in demand for sonobuoy among end users, the sonobuoy launching container manufacturers are striving hard to develop technologically robust systems. This factor is anticipated to drive the sonobuoy launcher market in the future. Since the demand for various types of antisubmarine warfare (ASW) technologies is rising among the naval forces, the manufacturers are continuously engaging in research and development of robust devices and systems. Sonobuoy are among the most attractive antisubmarine warfare technologies used for detecting and locating enemy submarines. On the other hand, torpedoes and underwater missiles are used to destroy enemy submarines. Integrating sonobuoy launchers with combat management systems is an emerging trend in the sonobuoy launcher market. The development of sonobuoy launchers for UAVs is creating business opportunities for the market players. However, long lifespan of sonobuoy launchers and availability of other submarine detection technologies hinder the growth of the market.
The US, Canada, and Mexico are major economies in North America. Amid continuous technological developments, the need to ensure the security of nations is becoming essential. The major countries in North America leverage advanced technologies to maintain antiwarfare situations and combat underwater threats to ensure the high-end security. Advancements in underwater acoustic surveillance technologies are encouraging the naval forces in the region to invest substantial amounts in adopting technology to combat the rising number of underwater threats. This would promote the use of sonobuoy systems to detect potential threats, thereby fueling the sonobuoy launcher market.
