Underwater tactics are means of attacking and defeating an enemy ship or fleet at sea during a conflict. The battlespace is the core idea of underwater warfare. It is a zone around a naval force in which a commander is sure of discovering, monitoring, engaging, and destroying enemies before they pose any harm to the relevant country. Surveillance (patrolling of littoral waters bounded by hostile coasts and harbors), reconnaissance which means gathering information from acoustic, electromagnetic, and optronic sensors without being detected, engagement means deploying missiles and torpedoes unanticipated by the enemy, and self-protection are all key functions of underwater warfare systems (utilizing forward-looking active sonar integrated torpedo counter systems). Underwater warfare systems must be adaptable enough to operate in complex naval battles.

The COVID-19 crisis has created uncertainty in the submarine military industry, a sharp decline in supply chain, a decline in business confidence, and an increase in panic among customer segments. The governments of various regions have announced the complete closure and temporary closure of factories, thus having a negative impact on total production and sales. The impact of the COVID-19 epidemic has led to delays in the development of submarine warfare systems and declining tests and demonstrations and limitations on key player performance. Governments around the world have prioritized the healthcare industry to combat the COVID-19 virus, which has adversely affected the functioning of the defense industry. Epidemic closures were removed and re-introduced to curb the spread of COVID-19 infections as public services were gradually opened up in major countries such as the UK, India and Italy. Lack of components, sub-systems, and electronic systems, due to regulations related to the import and export of goods has caused production delays. The development of submarine military systems has also had an impact due to material shortages, due to production closures in China, South Korea and Taiwan. However, in the aftermath of the epidemic, improvements in the submarine systems have been observed. With the relaxation of door-closure measures, vaccination measures, and the opening of global markets, the demand for submarine military systems is expected to grow significantly in the near future.

Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
