Advances in Undersea Warfare will be a Key Market Trend

There are increasing possibilities for undersea attacks as security measures are getting stricter about conventional international borders. Countries that are situated along the coastlines have a need to protect themselves from such threats. Hence, countries are investing in building their maritime defense capabilities in the interest of national security. Of all the other naval platforms, submarines are used for ensuring a high level of naval defense. This is due to its capabilities to launch covert counter attacks and its ability to stay submerged for extended periods without being detected. Thus, advances in undersea warfare is expected to drive the growth of the market.
