Submarines have become the major weapon for naval warfare for carrying out sensitive undersea operations. There have been multiple efforts towards the development of more powerful and quieter submarines that could help in eliminating the risk of being tracked by the enemy radars. Conventional diesel-electric submarines produce lesser noise as compared to the nuclear submarines as they run on battery charge through electric engines. However, these submarines face some of the challenges related to the storage of batteries.

For recharging their batteries, submarines need to get back to the water surface to get fresh oxygen in order to run their engines. Once the batteries are recharged, submarines dive into the ocean and silently perform the operations on battery power independent of the diesel generators.

This whole process of recharging submarine batteries exposes them to the enemy forces and increases the chances of being detected. Therefore, there has been a continuous development towards increasing underwater endurance of diesel-electric submarines. As a result of which, air-independent propulsion systems have been developed. These propulsion systems help submarines to remain submerged without the need for fresh oxygen, thus, increasing their endurance. With various forms of innovations in the field of AIP technology, advanced systems are being developed that are extremely efficient and are cost-effective as well.

BIS Research Analysis:

Based on the ongoing developments in the field of different AIP technologies, the total market size of AIP systems for submarines was valued at $174.1 million in 2016. The market of AIP systems is expected to show robust growth due to increasing need for safe and secure underwater military operations and demand for submarine modernization plans by the naval forces. Saab, DCNS, ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), Siemens and United Technologies Corporation, among others, are some of the major players of the AIP systems market.
