The growing need for safe and reliable communication among end users in the defense and homeland security sector is driving the market for underwater acoustic communication. A significant aspect influencing the market's expansion is the increase in the use of underwater acoustic modems in naval defense. Demand for underwater acoustic communication technology is increasing as more autonomous underwater vehicles are being added, coupled with newly developed sensors that offer options for surveillance and danger detection. In addition, the market for underwater acoustic communication will benefit from the expansion of undersea exploration projects and rising environmental protection needs. Also, Technologies for underwater audio communication are developing as a result of new methods being developed and access to a large amount of underwater data. Significant money is being given for the collection of in-water data in developed nations like the US and Europe. Another market-driving factor is the rise in environmental awareness and the appreciably increased efforts made to protect and maintain the environment. Moreover, the level of pollutants in the water is measured using these acoustic sensors. They are also used to check water quality and forecast weather. These factors are anticipated to advance the sector and act as its key drivers.
Underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs) transmit data at a pace that is around 200,000 times slower than terrestrial wireless sensor networks (TWSNs). While UWSN acoustic channels can only move at a speed of around 1500 m/s, TWSN radio channels may move at a speed of 300,000,000 m/s. Therefore, ensuring restricted end-to-end latency in underwater communication would be difficult. However, it is projected that market development would be restrained by the slow transmission and delayed delivery caused by the slower speed of sound in water. In comparison, water has a lower sound speed. Complications like delayed delivery, data loss owing to geometric spreading, signal absorption, etc. come from this. These elements may hinder the flow of information, which would constrain the market. Additionally, underwater conditions may have an impact on bandwidth. These elements are believed to inhibit growth.
