The key players in global naval combat vessels are Israel Military Industries (Israel), BAE Systems (U.K), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S.), Raytheon (U.S.), General Dynamics Corporation (U.S.), SaaB AB (Sweden), Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc. (U.S.), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (Japan), Kawasaki Shipbuilding Corporation (Japan), and Kockums AB (Sweden).
Global Naval Combat Vessels is estimated to witness a CAGR of 4% from 2018 to 2023.
Combat vessels are an important part of warfare ships that are built for battle on the water surface and are designed for applications such as war fight with submarines or aircraft and can execute other missions related to counter-narcotics operations and maritime interdiction operations (MIO). The increased need for modernization of naval combat systems has led to the increasing demand for the development of naval combat vessels. The increased focus on technology advancement of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) will enable manufacturers to offer new growth opportunities to the market players. For instance, Lockheed Martin signed a contract with U.S. Navy to design the largest unmanned underwater drone, the Orca. However, there are some shortcomings, such as difficulty in integration, which will restrain the growth of this market. The market for naval combat vessels is estimated to witness a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period.
On the basis of region, the Naval Combat Vessels Industry is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America. In North America, increasing incorporation of advanced combat systems into the naval vessels will boost the market. In 2017, Lockheed Martin signed a contract with the U.S. Navy to design the largest unmanned underwater drone, the Orca. In 2018, BAE Systems signed a contract with the U.S. Navy to modernize the guided-missile destroyer, USS Howard. In 2015, Israel Military Industries signed a contract with Germany for 4 TKMS MEKO Patrol Vessels.
