Key Market Trends

Increased Investment and Joint Collaboration Programs are Propelling the Market Growth

The European naval shipbuilding companies are developing advanced vessel designs that have witnessed a huge demand from foreign countries such as the United States. Italy's Fincantieri developed a frigate in collaboration with France for the national navies of Italy, France, Egypt, etc. and in April 2020, it bagged an order of USD 795 million to develop first of ten guided-missile FFG (X) frigate for the United States Navy. In April 2020, Spain joined the European Patrol Corvette program aimed at developing corvettes that can serve the missions performed by off-shore patrol boats and light frigates. The 3300 tons frigates, being developed by Naviris, a joint venture between France's Naval Group and Italy's Fincantieri, were initially proposed to serve naval security forces of France, Greece, and Italy but now after the entry of Spain, support from Navantia is expected to increase in the program. Russia is also investing in modernization of the existing fleet and has achieved significant developments in sound suppression technology for submarines. All these factors are propelling the market growth for naval vessels in the European region.

Russia to Exhibit Significant Growth During the Forecast Period

In 2019, Russian naval forces added 23 new vessels to their fleet which is 3 less than the 26 vessels added in 2018 but the rate of fleet expansion is more compared to the US and China. In May 2020, Russia ordered 6 Karakurt Class advanced corvettes for its Baltic fleet. Russia is also making investments in missile warships and its Irkutsk class of submarine fleet is undergoing up-gradation to house hypersonic Zicron missiles to counter threats posed by aircraft carriers, destroyers, etc. Such developments will propel the naval vessels market in Russia during the forecast period.
