The echo sounders market is expected to be worth US$ 298 million by the end of 2022. During the forecast period of 2022 to 2032, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3%, with a closing value of US$ 412 million. Historically, the market grew at a CAGR of 2.9% between 2016 and 2021.
Single beam echo sounders have a wide range of capabilities, including frequency agility to support existing transducer installations, compatibility with traditional thermal record printing, and modern PC screen-based interfaces. However, as multi-beam echo sounders have evolved, their capabilities have expanded with features such as pulse length, number of beams and coverage, and operating frequency, allowing them to be used in new areas.
Echo sounders are a type of Sound Navigation and Ranging (SONAR) device that records the time intervals between emission and pulse return to determine the depth of the water as well as the sound speed. Following the Titanic disaster in 1912, German physicist Alexander Behm developed the technique of echo sounding to detect icebergs and measure sea depth.

Furthermore, a dual-beam technique in the 1970s, permitting direct fish size in-situ through target strength estimation was invented, followed by the development of the first portable split-beam hydro acoustic system for better accuracy and less variable estimation. The global echo sounders market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to low power consumption, inexpensive tools, and innovations in product development.
Echo Sounders Market: Dynamics Drivers:
Single beam echo sounders provide an inexpensive seabed mapping tool when attached to a recording device and GPS which is expected to enhance the growth of global echo sounders market during the forecast period. Furthermore, technological advancements in multi-beam echo sounders are potentially making them a cost-effective system. Moreover, the requirement for compact systems with low power consumption in autonomous or remotely operated vehicles are expected to augment the echo sounders market over the forecast period.
Echo Sounders Market Restraints:
The speed of sound is directly proportional to density of the water that can be affected by various factors such as turbidity, temperature of water sample, pressure and salinity, and consequently expected to hamper the growth of the global echo sounders market during the forecast period.
Echo Sounders Market Trends:
With the development of the multi-beam echo sounders systems for offering narrow bandwidths, there is further demand for complementary increase in the number of beams provided to retain full ensonification of the seabed. Furthermore, to provide better control over the application and distribution of soundings, progress in the provision of greater number of soundings has been allied for advancement in beam-forming technology.
Echo Sounders Market: Region-wise Outlook
North America is expected to dominate the global echo sounders market during the forecast period owing to stringent marine regulations and awareness among consumers for better operations. Furthermore, Europe is estimated to witness significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to growing military defense applications in France, the U.K. and other parts, with growing adoption of advance technologies for better and accurate results.
Moreover, Asia Pacific is expected to register substantial growth over the forecast period majorly due to countries such as China, India and ASEAN, which deals with import and export through shipments as their way of business. The Latin America and Middle East Africa markets are estimated to enhance the growth of the global echo sounders market due to adoption of single as well as multi-beam echo sounders for better safety and results.
