The global air-independent propulsion (AIP) Systems for submarines market is expected to display high growth during forecast period. The air independent propulsion systems (AIP) systems growth drivers for the market include the underwater endurance of non-nuclear submarines that will have a lasting impression on the market. The engine of submarines requires contact with surface for an inlet to fresh air and let out engine exhaust into the atmosphere.
The function of Air-Independent propulsion (AIP) systems for submarines market is to help a submarine recharge its batteries without need to break for surface which does not affect combative operations of submarine and so too its underwater endurance increases. Submarines are designed to stay silent for long hours and be untraceable and propulsion systems help submarines get to their desired motive quite successfully.
The AIP Systems are different from traditional submarines in respect of replenishing their batteries and this growth factor helps AIP systems score over diesel engines. The segmentation of air-independent propulsion (AIP) systems for submarines market by product includes sterling engine submarine AIP Systems and fuel cell submarine AIP systems. By region, segmentation of air-independent propulsion (AIP) systems for submarines market includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, MEA and Latin America.
The sterling engine submarine AIP systems took largest share of the market and heat which enables the engine’s functionality that is produced in a combustion chamber and isolated from actual engine. AIP Systems signify growth on account of being formulated for solving problem of getting fresh oxygen from atmosphere thus driving growth in air-independent propulsion (AIP) systems and which is at a complete disadvantage with traditional diesel systems. Traditional diesel systems are hence risking exposure to enemy targets.
The advantages of AIP Systems are that they operate with low power and are less noisy than conventional diesel generators of submarines. The emergence of fuel cell AIP as compared to other AIP systems will find attraction among naval forces and submarine contractors across the globe thus driving growth of fuel cell AIP systems. The leading players in the market include United Shipbuilding Corporation, Saab, ThyssenKrupp, UnitedTechnologies, SIEMENS and SENER.
