The global hydrographic survey equipment market was valued at $3.1 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $5.3 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.73% from 2021 to 2030.

A hydrographic survey or a bathymetric survey refers to the process of measuring several factors under the surface of the water. The survey can be performed on still water as well as running water. The primary objectives of hydrographic survey equipment are the measurement of tides for sea coast with its scope of application in the construction of sea defense works and harbors. Data can also be used for the establishment of leveling dams for reducing sounding, and for the determination of bed depth. The hydrographic survey can also identify soundings for navigation, location of rocks, sand bars, and underwater works volumes of underwater excavation. In connection with irrigation and land drainage schemes, hydrographic survey equipment is used for the determination of the direction of current in connection with the location of the sewer, measurement of the quantity of water, and flow of water in connection with water schemes, and flood controls.

Hydrographic Survey Equipment Market, Hydrographic Survey Equipment Industry

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an adverse effect on the overall marine industry and thereby on the hydrographic survey equipment industry as well. Global travel restrictions and the ban on commercial and logistics trade routes across the globe had a significant impact on companies operating within the hydrographic survey equipment market. Moreover, limited logistics support due to trade restrictions disrupted the manufacturing industry, resulting in increased overhead costs, enforcing companies to book losses within the timeframe. To cope with the supply-demand gap, companies with international supply chains may need to analyze critical components that are in short supply and should consider strategies for alternative sourcing. For instance, the majority of the hydrographic survey equipment manufacturers depend on China for certain equipment such as underwater cameras and temperature, pressure, and other sensors. In addition, the implementation of strict social distancing guidelines is anticipated to increase the adoption of unmanned vehicles, such as ROVs and AUVs, for conducting hydrographic surveys globally. Risks associated with the spread of the virus reduced, owing to an increase in usage of unmanned vehicles.

Adoption of new technologies within the hydrographic survey equipment

Conventionally, the hydrographic survey was referred to as a logistically complex, costly, time taking, and risky process. As a result, the survey was often delayed and postponed. However, the integration of new technologies such as autonomous unmanned systems, advanced sensing, navigation, and optical components, coupled with strong processing units propels the market growth. Furthermore, the integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies within business operations of the hydrographic survey has notably reduced the time and cost of operations.

Companies operating within the vertical are engaged in acquiring huge data sets and gathering repositories of data that can be integrated with AI and ML, allowing them to provide a better end user experience. For instance, in April 2022, the UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) announced that they will provide S-100 navigation data for the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) project. During its trial, the MAS demonstrated abilities to interact with S-100 navigation data provided by UKHO and maneuver autonomously and recreate its passage through the sea.

High production cost and increased market competitiveness

The purpose of hydrographic surveying is to make digital infrastructure for efficient and safe navigation at sea. Hydrographic surveys are essential to display the most significant and crucial depth soundings. Proper execution of a bathymetric surveying task, from its beginning to the final submission of the results, is a continuous process, all parts of which have to be systematically and accurately carried out if the complete value is to be gained. The processes included in performing hydrographic surveys are planning of hydrographic survey, survey reconnaissance, data acquisition, coastline delineation, data processing, and data rendering. Moreover, the data collected in the most accurate manner can be wasted if it is not administered carefully and assembled & extracted in an understandable manner.

To conduct a bathymetric survey properly, various equipment is used to get information regarding the characteristics of the seabed. Equipment, such as multi-beam sonars, side scan sonars, LiDAR, laser scanners, and sound speed profiles, are readily used while conducting a hydrographic survey. The cost of the equipment makes surveys quite expensive, which is one of the main factors that are expected to hinder the growth of the hydrographic survey equipment market during the forecast period.
