Global Underwater Acoustic Modem Market 2017-2021

About Underwater Acoustic Modem

A modem (modulator-demodulator) is a device that modulates one or more wave signals to encode digital information for transmission. It demodulates signals to decode the transmitted information. The objective is to generate a signal that can be transmitted and decoded easily to reproduce the original data. Modems are used with any means of transmitting analog signals, from RF to microwaves to LEDs. A common type of modem is one that modulates the digital data of a computer to produce electrical signals for transmission through telephone lines. The signals are demodulated by another modem at the receiver side to recover the original digital data.

Underwater acoustic modems are used to transmit data wirelessly in water or marine surroundings. With the use of underwater modems, consumers can monitor, navigate, and communicate under water. The use of technologies, such as GPS and Wi-Fi, beneath the water surface has been made possible through the introduction of underwater modems, which are better known as acoustic modems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global underwater acoustic modem market to grow at a CAGR of 12.88% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Underwater Acoustic Modem Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global underwater acoustic modem market: DSPComm, EvoLogics, LinkQuest, and Nortek AS.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ocean Innovations and Teledyne Marine.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Advent of Internet of Underwater Things. The Internet of Things (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 Things. 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.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in adoption of underwater acoustic modems in naval defense. The naval defense has been one of the major users of underwater communication systems. These systems are used in applications that include submarine communications; diver communications; and remote underwater monitoring, command, and control. Since 2013, NATO member nations have strategically strengthened their underwater defense and security and have collaboratively responded to threats from Russia and China. These countries are focusing on strengthening their naval defense and underwater patrolling. Various underwater submarine devices and naval bases use acoustic modems for underwater communication.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Multipath reflections distort transmitted signals. Multipath reflections happen when various signals reach the receiving antenna by two or more paths. It is caused by atmospheric ducting, ionospheric reflection and refraction, and reflection from water bodies and terrestrial objects, such as mountains and buildings. This results in a loss of signals and decreases the efficiency of modems under water.
