Hydrographic survey is the process of recording physical features of coastal areas, oceans, rivers, seas, and lakes. The equipment that are used to do such surveys are called hydrographic survey equipment. Hydrographic surveys test the depth and analyzes the distance from the coast between survey ships. Moreover, hydrographic survey describes the features which affect maritime navigation, dredging, offshore oil exploration, maritime construction, and related activities. Earlier, hydrographic technology used hardware setup in order to connect with satellites for accessing information. However, at present, hydrographic technology has moved from hardware setup to software such as QINSy (Quality Integrated Navigation System).  The main objective of hydrographic surveys is to ensure the safety of maritime navigation.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • Due to COVID-19 situation, the ongoing research & development in hydrographic survey equipment has been affected due to the declared lockdowns and government restrictions on public gatherings.
  • The business of offshore companies has negatively affected due to COVID-19 restrictions, which will directly affect the demand of hydrographic survey equipment.
  • The government all across the globe has closed the boundaries of their countries to curb the transmission of virus, which is restricting engineers & other workers to move and hence affecting production of hydrographic survey equipment.
  • Demand may rise significantly in near future in the global hydrographic survey equipment market in upcoming quarter as industry’s production has started to get momentum after tough phase of COVID-19.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Rise in offshore renewable wind energy projects, increase in maritime commerce & transport, and increase in the use of AUV & ROV are some of the major factors which drive the growth of the global hydrographic survey equipment market. However, factors including the high costs associated with carrying out hydrographic surveys and lack of technical expertise in undertaking hydrographic surveys is expected to restrain the growth of the hydrographic survey equipment market. Contrarily, technological advancements in hydrographic survey equipment and rise in offshore oil & gas exploration expenditure are expected to further boost the growth of global hydrographic survey equipment market in the future.

Rise in offshore oil & gas exploration expenditure 

Development in offshore infrastructure projects such as bridges, effluent disposal systems, and ports for various industries & coastal thermal power plants has been increased. Such projects use hydrographic survey equipment for several activities such as measuring the depth of the sea, navigation etc. Hence, rise in offshore oil & gas expenditure is encouraging the development in the hydrographic survey equipment market, and thereby expected to generate significant demand in the global hydrographic equipment market in the future.
