Underwater Acoustic Modem Market – Trends and Forecasts by Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#EmbeddedSystems–Technavio’s latest report on the global
underwater acoustic modem market
provides an analysis of the
most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from
2017-2021. Technavio
defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to
significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

The global
underwater acoustic modem market
is expected to grow at a CAGR of
close to 13% during the forecast period. Underwater acoustic modems are
the major components used for underwater communication. These devices
are the backbone for underwater and marine communication, navigation,
and location-based services. The defense sector is increasingly adopting
underwater modems for communication between submarines. With every
region trying to build a strong marine defense, the adoption of these
modems has increased.

Jujhar Singh, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on embedded
sector, says, “The increase in oil and gas mining
worldwide, especially in emerging economies such as Brazil, Russia,
India, China, and South Africa, is expected to be a major driver of
revenue growth in the underwater acoustic modem market during the
forecast period. These underwater acoustic modems are used for pipeline
monitoring systems, environmental monitoring systems, and oceanographic
instrumentation in oil fields and plants.”

Introduction of modems with expanded memory option and data logger

Underwater acoustic modems gather data and smart information and are
used for the transfer of various information. With the increase in the
amount of information being transferred daily, there is a need for
expanded memory slots in modems to store large volumes of information.
Also, there is a need for data logger standards to accommodate
historical data logs and keep ample memory space for future use.

“Teledyne Marine, a group of leading-edge undersea technology
companies, is already manufacturing ATM-900 Series modems with the
expanded memory feature. Other leading vendors are expected to follow
this trend during the forecast period,”
according to Jujhar.

Use of corrosion-resistant materials to improve lifespan of modems

The use of technologies, such as GPS and Wi-Fi, beneath the water
surface, is possible because of the adoption of underwater acoustic
modems. Modems have a short lifespan because they are largely used under
water and are prone to corrosion. Therefore, vendors are developing
acoustic modems that are made of corrosion-resistant materials. These
acoustic modems have a hard-coat anodized aluminum composite housing
that makes them resistant to corrosion and increases their lifespan. The
920 Series ATM-925 by Teledyne is an example of this type of modem.

Advent of Internet of Underwater Things

The IoT is the latest trend in the global technology arena. The IoT can
connect billions of devices worldwide, including TVs, laptops, coffee
makers, automated door locks, wearable devices, mobile phones, and
GPS-enabled pet trackers, with the Internet. During the forecast period,
the market will witness the development of the Internet of Underwater

With the rapid growth in the IoT, there will be an increase in the
network of smart devices connecting all systems, from home appliances to
shipping containers under water. For instance, submarine robots
communicate in a way that is similar to dolphins and whales that use
underwater sonar.

The key vendors are as follows:

  • DSPComm
  • EvoLogics
  • LinkQuest
  • Nortek AS
