Increasing Applications of the Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) in Oceanographic Studies to Bolster the Market Growth

Based on type, the autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) is significantly contributing to the growth of the market. AUVs are a crucial component in oceanographic studies as they are used for data collection, exploration, and can create 3D reconstructions or maps. Over the forecast period,  AUVs are likely to witness a significant demand from the oil and gas industry, owing to the ability of the product to inspect and repair submerged infrastructures, which, in turn, is anticipated to propel the market growth. In addition to this, the rising applications of AUVs in search, recognition, and localisation tasks is further predicted to have a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Apart from this,  remotely operated vehicle (ROV) is likely to witness significant growth in the forecast period, owing to its rising applications in offshore industries, including the maintenance of marine structures, marine sciences, naval defence, marine renewable energy, and scientific purposes.

 

North America is Projected to Account for a Significant Share in the Market Growth of Underwater Drones

In the coming years, North America is likely to occupy a substantial share in the overall market growth of underwater drones. This can be associated with the  growing demand for underwater drones for  ocean exploration in the region.  In addition to this, the rising investments and advancements towards expanding the capabilities of AUVs and ROVs, for better exploration, more extended operations, and precise data collection is likely to provide impetus to the market growth in the forecast period. The market is further anticipated to be aided by the rising demand for REMUS AUVs in the United States for the purpose of detecting mines, surveying, and mapping the areas.
