Echo sounders are a type of Sound Navigation and Ranging (SONAR) used to determine depth of the water along with sound speed through recording time interval between emission and pulse return. After the disaster of Titanic in 1912, Alexander Behm, the German physicist, discovered the technique of echo sounding to detect icebergs and to measure the depth of the sea. Furthermore, dual-beam technique in 1970s, permitting direct fish size in-situ through target strength estimation was invented, followed by development of 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 the product development.

Echo Sounders Market: Dynamics


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.


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.
