Market Dynamics

The global underwater connectors market growth is driven by the growing demand for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs).  AUVs are being deployed for underwater survey missions required in defense, commercial, and scientific research sectors. These vehicles require connectors, which are water and corrosion resistant as they are majorly exposed to seawater. The implementation of underwater connectors in AUVs provides wireless power transfer, increasing its adoption in these vehicles. 

 

Underwater application areas that require underwater power connectors are offshore oil and gas, defense systems and equipment, and others. Moreover, According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), total world military expenditure rose to $1,822 billion in 2018, representing an increase of 2.6 percent from 2017.  The five biggest spenders in 2018 were the United States, China, Saudi Arabia, India, and France, which together accounted for 60% of global military spending.

 

Besides, the oil & gas sector offers promising growth for underwater connectors in the coming future. In 2018, according to the International Energy Administration, China had record oil and gas imports and remains the number one crude oil importer in the world after surpassing the United States in 2017 and is the number two natural gas importer, behind Japan.

 

Steady rise in oil and gas industry coupled with a significant increase in military and defense spending is expected to fuel growth in the global underwater connectors market.

 

Market Segmentation

By Type, the global underwater connectors market is segmented into Rubber-molded, Inductive Coupling, Fluid-filled Underwater Mateable Connector, and Rigid-shell/Bulk-headed. In 2018, the rubber-molded segment accounted for the majority share in the market. Rubber molded underwater are cost-effective, therefore used in a wide range of industry verticals.  Suitable for underwater lights and cameras, ROV systems, diver communication, and towed-array cable systems, rubber molded connectors have also witnessed relatively high innovations and investments. For instance, in 2018, SEACON announced that all TE Connectivity MOG (Marine, Oil & Gas) Rubber Molded Series will be manufactured complying with RoHS guidelines and requirements.

 

By Application, the global underwater connectors market is segmented into Oil and Gas, Military and Defense, Telecommunication, and others. Underwater connectors have enabled significant progress in the modularization of multiple systems in oil & gas, defense, and oceanographic industries.  In the oil & gas industry, the demand for advanced technology is being witnessed. These connectors are being highly used during the extraction process of oil & gas from ocean floors. They provide smooth performance and optical connection in extreme environmental conditions. Several underwater connectors market players are focusing on providing innovative products to improve the efficiency of the underwater equipment.
