BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated global underwater acoustic communication market size at USD 1.9 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects global underwater acoustic communication market size to grow at a significant CAGR of 13.6% reaching a value of USD 4 billion by 2029. Major growth factors for global underwater acoustic communication market include the increasing use of underwater acoustic communication for exploration, security, and monitoring by a variety of end users. Due to the increase in security threats, major countries, such as the US and Canada, are increasingly employing underwater acoustic communication devices for naval and security purposes in unmanned underwater vehicles. Continuous R&D to tackle the challenges of underwater communication is expected to propel the industry forward. Another market driver is an increase in environmental consciousness and a major increase in efforts to conserve and protect the environment. A surge in underwater exploration programs for environmental protection is another aspect driving expansion. Underwater acoustic communication devices are gaining ground on established methods for seafloor mapping and data collection. Underwater audio communication is also becoming more popular as a warning system for underwater earthquakes or tsunamis, as well as for monitoring underwater pollutants and habitat. They are also used to check water quality and forecast the weather. These factors are expected to drive the expansion of global underwater acoustic communication during the forecast period.
Global Underwater Acoustic Communication Market – Overview
Underwater acoustic communication is a method of sending and receiving signals beneath the surface of the water. Underwater acoustic communication differs from terrestrial communication in that it uses acoustic waves rather than electromagnetic signals. Sound waves are used for improved communication in underwater acoustic communication because they move well under water. Underwater acoustic communication is concerned with the underwater propagation of sound and mechanical wave interactions that aid in the development of sound within water. In the recent decade, underwater vehicles have been used to explore natural undersea resources and collect critical data in underwater marine research operations.
Impact of COVID-19 on Global Underwater Acoustic Communication Market
COVID-19 had a limited impact on the underwater acoustic modem business. Rising coronavirus incidence around the world resulted in stringent social distance and lockdown norms, causing supply chain disruption and hurting product demand. There was a decrease in military and defense spending, affecting product demand during the pandemic.
