Report : North America Underwater Connector Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Type (Rubber-Molded, Inductive Coupling, Fluid-Filled Underwater Mateable Connector, and Rigid-Shell/Bulk Headed), Connection (Electrical, Optical Fiber, and Hybrid), and Application (Military & Defense, Oil & Gas, Telecommunications, Oceanography, ROVs/AUVs, and Others)

At 6.1% CAGR, the North America Underwater Connector Market is speculated to be worth US$ 568.97 Million by 2028, says Business Market Insights

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the North America underwater connector market was valued at US$ 399.35 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 568.97 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 6.1% from 2022 to 2028. Surge in oil & gas usage across the region and advanced subsea system for commercial and military applications are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.

With growing government and private investment in research and development activities, underwater connectors are used in offshore, geophysical, oil and gas, oceanographic, and marine defense applications operated by research, commercial, and defense organizations. Industries are integrating new technologies and using different raw materials to produce new underwater connectors with improved performance and durability under underwater

 conditions. Various carriers and network firms require high-speed data transmission systems, which demand the use of a modern undersea cable connector. Integrating new technologies increases the demand for underwater cable connectors as undersea mining and oil exploration become more common. For instance, NiobiCon is a novel type of underwater electrical connection that allows for power and data transfer without the use of seals, oil, or moving parts. This technology was created to solve the inefficiency of the underwater recharging of autonomous vehicles. The niobium connector develops its own thin isolating layer when it comes into contact with water, which is scraped off when the connection is completed. The layer regenerates immediately after being unplugged. Northrop Grumman engineers developed the technique to establish a safe, dependable, and economical means to link electric currents in a wet or corrosive environment while keeping the power flowing. Moreover, the investment for new technology by government and private institutes has increased. As a result, the underwater connector market has an opportunity to rise rapidly over the forecast period

On the contrary, tough environmental regulations hurdles the growth of North America underwater connector market.
