    What is a Torpedo?

    An explosive warhead is attached to a self-propelled weapon called a torpedo, intended to explode as it meets the target or closes by. Heavyweight and lightweight torpedoes are the two market segments for torpedoes, respectively, depending on weight. The sector of lightweight torpedoes includes those that weigh less than 500 kg, whereas the segment of heavyweight torpedoes includes those that weigh more than 500 kg.

    Market Dynamics

    Major economies are involved in trade and cold wars for their interest and disinterest, positively impacting market growth. For instance, the US was in a trade war with China, which shattered in 1949 as part of the Chinese mainland, the delivery of technology that would allow Taiwan to produce its advanced weapons.

    The defense industry's growth directly impacts the Torpedo market's growth. The high demand from the navy is closely attributed to the growth. The increasing number of territorial conflicts worldwide will show positive market growth during the assessment period.

    The globe is seeing a lot of navy modernization efforts since maritime security is one of the most important defense units. Various ships, aircraft, wire-guided torpedoes, and wake-homing torpedoes are all part of China's navy modernization effort, including improvements in maintenance & logistics, personnel education, and training. China's navy modernization efforts are intended to improve capabilities for handling any unfortunate series of events or for gaining more control over China's near-seas region, protecting China's commercial sea lines of communication (SLOCs), particularly those connecting China to the Persian Gulf, posing a threat to the U.S.'s influence in the Western Pacific, and reaffirming China's status as a major world power. Consequently, this will fuel the expansion of the worldwide torpedo market throughout the anticipated time.

    Several investments in the defense industry have been directed at Torpedo in recent years, which would boost the overall market. Some of them are:

    • Overall funding for the US Department of the Navy was sought at USD$211.7 billion, which is a 1.8% increase above the FY21 proposal. However, the Navy's share of that is just USD$163.9 billion, or 0.6%, higher than in FY21.
    • India is now continuing to invest in its naval forces. Last month, the Union Minister of State for Defence announced that expected orders for surface ships and submarines with torpedos from 2020 to 2030 by the Indian Navy would be worth $51 billion.
    • According to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), from April 2020 – June 2021, the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) equity flow in the Indian Defense sector was valued at $10.15 million.

    Covid-19 Impact

    Nearly all industrial sectors have been proven to be negatively impacted by COVID-19. COVID-19's impacts on the defense sector were minimal compared to other market industries. However, there was even a little decline in growth rate because of the temporary shutdown or halt in industrial facilities brought on by the lockdown effect. Due to significant financial losses brought on by the epidemic, the world is currently experiencing an economic crisis, which has restricted investment in the defense industry. The government has backed investments in defense equipment to protect the military and the populace. This aspect has accelerated the expansion of the torpedo market size, and it is anticipated that this growth will continue significantly to meet the stated CAGR.

    Segments Analysis

    By Operation Type

    There are two types of operations in the torpedo market: autonomous and guided. Due to numerous qualities like rapid speed and high capacity, which are useful in warfare, the autonomous category has accounted for the biggest torpedo market share between the two. Therefore, the autonomous category is expected to see the highest growth rate throughout the projection period.

    By Launch Type

    The torpedo market is segmented into aerial and naval platforms. Aerial platforms include helicopters and airplanes, while naval platforms include ships and submarines capable of torpedoes with significant weight. Consequently, the naval sector has seen the highest share in recent years.

    By Propulsion Type

    Thermal-powered and electric-driven propulsion is the two categories under which the torpedo market is divided. Due to the increased lethality and effectiveness of electric-powered torpedoes in naval combat operations, the market for these has dominated in recent years.

    By Category Type

    The torpedo market is further divided into heavyweight and lightweight torpedoes. Lethal warheads can be added to the highly weighted torpedoes, increasing damage. As a result, in recent years, the heavily weighted category has represented the biggest market share for torpedoes.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America is likely to maintain its supremacy in the Torpedo market throughout the forecast period. During the anticipated term, it is anticipated to have the quickest growth. Regions like the US are speeding the growth of the torpedo market in the North American area due to the rise in investment in missile and rocket systems to develop the naval warfare system. Due to the need for military equipment for diverse military activities in navy and air force missions, the remaining regions, including Europe and the Asia Pacific, continue to develop steadily.

    Concurrently, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the global Torpedo market during the forecast period.  The key factor responsible for the swift growth is the increased demand for torpedos by the navy. The increased defense and individual spending on security in countries such as China and India inject huge growth prospectus for the Torpedo market in the Asia Pacific region.
