Air-Independent Propulsion Systems for Submarine Market Size Estimated To Reach At 5.01% CAGR 2020-2030

April 2023 "Global Air-Independent Propulsion Systems for Submarine Market Research Report - Forecast to 2030”

Global Air-Independent Propulsion Systems for Submarine Market – Overview

Air Independent Propulsion Systems (AIP) Market Size Is Anticipated To Reach USD 180.01 Billion 2030, And At 5.01% CAGR 2020-2030

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.

The high demand for air-independent propulsion systems for the submarine market is due to the growing need for extended submerged periods, cost-efficiency, and increased investment in research and development, thus increasing the participation of manufacturers. Rapid technology advancement, along with the increased focus of OEMs on strengthening naval capabilities, is expected to result in an increase in submarine expenses and add to the growth of the market. However, the engineering challenges in existing fuel cell technologies act as a barrier to the growth of air-independent propulsion systems for the submarine market. The revolution of second-generation submarine results in many naval submarines upgrading technologies with AIP batteries and fuel cells.

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.
