Drivers and Restraints

Rising Exploration Activities to Underpin Growth Potentials

Industry players are likely to witness an exponential demand for autonomous underwater vehicles for ocean current profile with tides, sub-bottom profiling, optical imagery, and salinity profiles. Considering the demand for AUV systems to collate information, the underwater connectors market share is likely to gain traction. Prominently, in October 2021, India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology rolled out a deep-sea exploration mission to develop, test, and manufacture underwater deep-sea exploration vessels. Moreover, advancements in the subsurface fleet and development of submarines could add fillip to industry growth. Notably, the U.S. Navy has upped efforts to foster unmanned underwater capabilities.

However, soaring installation and maintenance costs could dent the penetration of underwater connectors.

Competitive Landscape

Industry Players to Focus on Product Portfolio Expansion to Bolster Footfall

Leading companies are likely to emphasize strategic approaches, including product launches, mergers and acquisitions, RandD activities, and technological advancements. Current trends suggest key players could invest in strategic expansion during the forecast period.
