Nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines are set to be fastest-growing segment in the global submarine market by 2029, says GlobalData

By GlobalData

Submarines are a large sector in the naval warfare market and offer a unique perspective on the battlefield. Currently, the biggest factors driving demand for submarines are high-value procurement programs; these include the US Navy’s Virginia-Class procurement, the Indian Navy’s SSN program, and the French Navy’s Barracuda-Class procurement. The impact of these programs is an ever-growing global submarine market.


Navies are increasingly investing in submarine enhancements to improve undersea warfare capabilities.

GlobalData’s report The Global Submarine Market 2019-2029 will explore the latest developments in undersea naval technology, and provide key insights into naval technology providers.

Navies across the world are enhancing their undersea capabilities by commissioning advanced submarines, primarily to gain an advantage over opposing forces. The main drivers for enhanced submarine-based capabilities are disputes over offshore territories, and the need to explore previously undiscovered offshore oil and gas reserves.
