Submarine Battery Market Overview


From the recent research reports, the submarine batteries industry is foreseen to grow in terms of value up to USD 1.33 billion by 2027 with an attractive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.45%. Submarine batteries are used to power the equipment and in-house systems in submarines when submerged underwater. The batteries that are installed in a submarine are also deployed for propulsion whenever required. The stringent laws regarding marine emissions have also increased the demand for submarine batteries. The average shelf life of these submarine batteries is approximately 30 to 40 years.


Moreover, there are many major manufacturers that design these batteries with adequate submarine battery capacity. Submarine batteries are used for both human-crewed and uncrewed vehicles. Lithium energy packs have been grown in popularity, especially for human-crewed submarines. The submarine battery market is making some notable technological strides from the relentless efforts of some batter manufacturers to meet the most stringent conditions under which submarines work. Several lead-acid solutions have emerged, and new chemistries of batteries are likely to pave the way to further innovations. The submarine battery market has thus evolved on the evolving demand for battery management systems for these vehicles. Electronics companies have teamed up with battery manufacturers to dole out new products with higher shelf-life and performance guarantees supported by technical documentation.


COVID-19 Analysis


With the COVID outbreak, there has been a sharp pullback in economic activities due to mandatory lockdowns and other containment measures. The demand for submarine batteries across different applications is likely to fall as the outbreak is likely to restrict the supply chain and the adoption of such batteries due to severe disruptions in businesses and the global economy. The outbreak of the pandemic has slowed battery supply chains as the maximum battery cells are made in China, thus throwing light on the overwhelming dependence on China and the related supply chain risks.


Market Dynamics:




  • Market drivers




The major factors driving the growth of the global submarine battery industry include increased spending by the government in the defense sector. Moreover, the investment by key players in developing advanced submarines is also expected to drive the use of submarine batteries. For instance, in September and May 2019, the US Navy had planned to invest USD 2 billion for its next-generation nuclear submarine program. It is expected to increase the demand for submarine navy batteries that are an integral component of submarines. Moreover, increasing investments in the Navy in developing countries are likely to be an opportunity for the submarine battery market players.




  • Market restraints




However, high maintenance cost is expected to hinder the global market. The biggest threat to submarine batteries is nuclear power, as nuclear-powered submarines can stay underwater for a long time, i.e., weeks/months. Furthermore, nuclear fuel lasts much longer than diesel fuel. A nuclear submarine does not have to come to a port to refuel.




  • Technology analysis




Hanwha Defense will use submarine batteries' know-how to develop ESS technology for civilian ships. ESS is a power storage system that comprises batteries or even specially designed battery packs. The global submarine battery market company will develop technologies like safety control, lightweight and miniaturization, optimal design for a marine environment, firefighting in module units, and preventing heat transfer. Electric power is required to operate equipment and other in-house systems in submarines. For underwater and surface propulsion, submarines are equipped either with diesel engines, which run on fuel (diesel) or utilize nuclear reactors that use nuclear fission for propulsion. Several submarines are also equipped with battery banks to supply electrical power. A fully charged battery is the only source of submarine propulsion during emergencies. On the surface, these submarines utilize diesel engines for propulsion and thus charge the main storage battery. Once the batteries are ultimately charged, the submarine can head underwater and perform underwater operations. Thus, a submarine equipped with a charged battery is the only way a diesel submarine can submerge underwater.


Market Segmentation


The submarine battery market has been divided all across the globe based on type, application, and region. The lead-acid battery segment held the dominant position in the market in 2017 and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is due to various advantages of lead batteries, such as being reliable, robust, and capable of delivering high current. Lead-acid battery helps to provide standby and propulsion power in various submarines. Continued technical improvement in lead-acid battery technology has accelerated the segment's growth in the market.


Based on the Type


The market has been divided all across the globe based on the type into flooded lead-acid batteries, valve-regulated lead-acid batteries, and many others. The valve-regulated lead-acid batteries segment holds the largest market share.


Based on the Application
