The Sea Mine continues to be a constant threat to global navies, with relatively primitive moored and drifting contact mines to technologically sophisticated influence mines. About a million naval mines are reported to be held by more than 60 nations. Since the end of World War II, naval mines have severely damaged or sunk nearly four times as many U.S. Navy ships as all other modes of attack combined. Sea mines inflict damage that costs many times larger more in vessel reconstruction and maintenance than the unit cost of the mine detonated by the ship. Even though mines fail to cause casualties, they have been successful in disabling choke points, stopping, or slowing down amphibious landings, and limiting access to enemy coasts.

Based on specialized low-signature warships usually armed with hull-mounted or dynamic depth sonars, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) for mine detection and destruction, and advanced data systems for mine warfare, Navies globally are focusing on modernizing their legacy MCM capabilities. The major areas of investment being focused on in the mine countermeasures market are sonar advancements, the deployment of remotely controlled minesweeper, upgraded command and control (C2) systems, autonomous and unmanned systems, innovative mine effectors, and improvised explosive device (IED) disposal.

Variables such as focusing on improving frontline situational awareness and increasing occurrences of asymmetric and network-centered warfare have a major positive impact on the mine countermeasures market. Moreover, the increase in defence spending, particularly in emerging economies, and subsequent investments in the procurement of such systems are further boosting the growth of the market. Factors such as high cost of acquisition, and nations with no coastline, however, hinder the growth of the market to some extent. Increasing terrorist attacks and a focus on counter operations, and the launch of modernization programs by many nations around the world, have created promising opportunities for the mine countermeasures market to grow.
