Global Unmanned Surface Vehicle Market 2017-2021
About Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs)
USVs are also known as ASVs. They are autonomous or semi-autonomous or can be operated with a remote controlling device. These vehicles are pre-programmed to perform certain defined tasks. Vendors in the marine system industry that have traditionally been dealing with unmanned underwater vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles are expanding their scope to provide USVs.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global USV market to grow at a CAGR of 13.72% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global USV market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of USVs.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors in the USV market are working on innovations, which can allow collaboration between different types of unmanned vehicles to attain efficiency in transportation, deployment, and support and recovery of unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs).”
According to the report, the ocean covers around 70% of the Earth, in which many are unexplored due to the large coverage area, difficult operating conditions above the water surface, and communication challenges. USVs are extensively being used for research in the fields of hydrography and oceanography as they have more capabilities than weather buoys. Also, they cost lesser than weather ships and research vessels.
Further, the report states that there are various limitations in operating USVs safely over the horizon due to limited developments in fields such as collision detection and avoidance, situational awareness, and satellite communication. As certain ASVs, especially those used in inland waterways are small, they are often difficult to detect and have the potential to cause navigational hazards and damage vessels, buoys, fishing nets, and other debris, in a water body. Thus, collision detection is an area, which still needs considerable research.
