Hydrography also predicts the changes in these physical features over time. The primary objective of hydrography is the safety of navigation and other marine activities such as offshore oil and gas, security and defense, scientific research, port and harbor management, and environmental protection. Commissioning of new hydrographic surveys and updating of nautical charts are the main growth stimulating factors for this market.

This report presents a complete analysis of the global hydrographic equipment market across the forecast period. It analyses the factors driving the market, challenges faced by the industry, factors restraining the growth of the market, and opportunities for industry players. It also provides an understanding of hydrography related contracts implemented, along with the ongoing procurement trends of the sub-segments in this report.

The forecast has been done by focusing on the commercial shipping sector. Based on the vessel type, we have considered equipment ranging from sound and acoustic systems, positioning systems, and environmental instruments. Sound and acoustic products comprise of side scan sonar, towed or fixed sonar system, single beam, and multi beam echosounder. Positioning system includes traditional GPS and DGPS (Differential Global Positioning System). Environmental instruments comprise of tide gauges.Key technology trends that may influence the global hydrographic equipment market have also been discussed.

With respect to applications, hydrographic charting captures a majority of the market size with 70%, followed by offshore oil and gas, coastal engineering, and port and harbor management. However, the offshore oil and gas application for exploration, drilling, and lying of pipeline is on the rise.The increase in the fuel prices is leading to exploration of offshore oil and gas reserves and rising demand for new nautical charts by seafarers globally will drive this market in the future.

The commercial ship industry is one of the largest consumers of hydrographic equipment. The shipping industry trends during the forecast period indicate a massive change in the vessel type depending on its size and gross tonnage. Future deliveries of vessels would definitely require the latest hydrographic data pertaining to navigational aids, like nautical charts, vessel traffic management at ports and harbors.
