Global Air Independent Propulsion Systems for Submarine Market Research Report: Information by Type (Stirling, MESMA, Fuel Cells, and Others), Fit (Line Fit and Retro Fit), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America)—Forecast till 2025
Submarine is a major weapon in the hands of the navy. Traditional diesel-electric submarines have an underwater endurance of only a few days and they need to surface frequently to charge their batteries.
As battery technology improved the endurance of these submarines but it was not enough. While underwater, the batteries on board power the propeller and other electrical systems on the submarine. These batteries run out of charge within 4-5 days and needs to recharge them.
This is done by snorkelling, which exposes them to detection by enemy radars and makes them an easy target. Hence we need a system which can allow diesel-electric submarines to recharge their batteries without running their engines. This will allow them to continue sailing underwater and remaining undetected. The system which permits all this is Air Independent Propulsion (AIP).
Such systems are majorly used for enhancing the performance of small defensive submarines. Moreover, increasing importance of submarines in naval warfare, submarine upgradation programs over the years to drive the market for combat systems, among others can be considered as the indirect factors driving the AIP systems market. The AIP technology can be installed on existing older generation submarines by inserting a new hull section during a retrofit.
Air-independent propulsion technology design to allow the diesel submarines to operate without having to access the surface for atmospheric oxygen. This will helps diesel submarines to carry out operations in a stealthy manner reducing their chances of being seen by enemy ships and aircraft.
The AIP systems comprises of an engine, fuel, a generator attached to the engine, and a battery. The popularity of these systems has risen and there is a large number of navies seeking to build submarines with AIP systems. These days, several AIP schemes are under development or already in operation, can increase slow-speed endurance to as much as a month. While it is still dwarfed by the potential of nuclear power, AIP offers diesel submarines a remarkable increase in capability.
Moreover, other factors responsible for the growth of the air-independent propulsion systems for the submarine market are demand for technology advancement in the submarine system.
This is the primary factor that drives the growth of the global air-independent propulsion systems for submarine market and has gained prevalence in the recent times, with the usage of best in class technologies in the naval sectors. Thus, the growth of the air-independent propulsion systems for the submarine market is expected to go hand in hand with the growth of investment in the submarine industry.
SAAB AB (Sweden), Siemens AG (Germany), DCNS SA (France), China Shipbuilding Industry Co., Ltd. (China), UTC Aerospace Systems (U.S.), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S.), General Dynamics Corporation (U.S.), Kongsberg Gruppen ASA (Norway) are some of the prominent players profiled in MRFR Analysis and are at the forefront of competition in the global Air-Independent Propulsion Systems for Submarine Market.
Global Air-Independent Propulsion Systems for Submarine Market: Regional Analysis
North American region is dominating the market of the global air-independent propulsion systems for submarine market due to countries such as U.S., Canada, spending heavily on their naval capabilities. These investments are targeted on the submarine building.
Asia Pacific market is referred to as the second-largest air-independent propulsion system market due to factors such as high demand for naval submarines with high endurance capabilities have fuelled the demand for global air-independent propulsion systems for submarine market. For instance, China invested heavily on its naval capabilities as a part of their strategic investment to increase their naval capabilities.
