SSNs are in high demand due to their beneficial features, such as higher endurance, enhanced speeds, and better efficiency, over the traditionally powered SSKs. The current generation of SSNs do not have to be refueled to extend their lifespan (which is 25 years and more) and can host powerful weapons and sensors. The increasing investments in developing nuclear-powered submarines and improvement in designs have surged the fleet orders for SSN globally. 

Market growth by the SSN segment will be faster than the growth of the market by the SSBN and SSK segments. This report provides an accurate prediction of the contribution of all the segments to the growth of the submarine market size.

Submarine Market: Key Drivers and Trends

Submarine market analysis at Technavio predicts that the global submarine market will grow at a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period. This market research analysis identifies the growing arms race among countries as one of the primary factors for the submarine market growth. With the growing number of conflicts involving maritime borders and trade routes, countries across the world have the need to improve their underwater combat capabilities. To gain or sustain military supremacy, countries are increasingly focusing on developing and procuring the most sophisticated and high-end military platforms such as submarines, which will subsequently drive market growth. Countries such as Japan, South Korea, Pakistan, Australia, and Taiwan have already started making significant investments in this domain.

Li-ion batteries can store up to 100% greater energy than lead-acid batteries and can be fully charged at a faster rate. The performance of these batteries is consistently fair even in low levels of charge. Additionally, these batteries can be recharged at sea by snorkeling and have minimal need for maintenance. This, in turn, will result in the integration of lithium-ion batteries in submarines, which will be one of the major submarine market trends that will gain traction during the next few years.
