Global Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market: Growth Factors

The increasing demand for the autonomous underwater vehicle in the military and defense applications such as environmental assessment, monitoring of smuggling of the illegal products, mine countermeasures, border surveillance and security, and antisubmarine warfare is expected to boost the global autonomous underwater vehicles market. The rising offshore oil and gas production and vigorous research being carried out under large depths help escalate the growth of the global market. The deep underwater operating capability of large AUVs makes them suitable for applications such as search and recovery operations applications, oceanography, and environment research further attributes the global market growth. The stringent government policies regarding the AUVs flight and high maintenance cost hinder the global market growth.

Global Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market: Segmentation

The global autonomous underwater vehicles market is bifurcated based on the technology, type, and application. The technology segment is divided into propulsion, imaging, navigation, sonar, communication, and collision avoidance. The propulsion subsegment is further categorized into propulsion motor, pump motor, fin control actuator, and linear electromechanical actuator. The navigation subsegment is classified into compass-based navigation solution and inertial navigation system. The type segment is divided into medium AUVs (depth of about 1000m), shallow AUVs (depth of about 100m), and large AUVs (depth of about 1000m above). The application segment is grouped into oil and gas, military and defense, environmental protection and monitoring, search and salvage operations, oceanography, and archeology and exploration. The oil and gas subsegment is further bifurcated into a geophysical survey, debris or clearance survey, pipeline survey, and baseline environmental assessment. The environmental protection and monitoring subsegment are categorized into fishery study, habitat research, water sampling, fishery study, and emergency response. The military and defense subsegment is grouped into environmental assessment, monitoring smuggling of illegal goods, border security and surveillance, antisubmarine warfare, and mine countermeasures.
