Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market by Type (Shallow, Medium, and Large AUVs), Technology (Collision Avoidance, Communication, Navigation, Propulsion, Sonar, and Imaging), Application (Oil & Gas, Oceanography, Military & Defense) - Global Forecast to 20

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market by Type (Shallow, Medium, and Large AUVs), Technology (Collision Avoidance, Communication, Navigation, Propulsion, Sonar, and Imaging), Application (Oil & Gas, Oceanography, Military & Defense) - Global Forecast to 2022

“Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market projected to grow at a significant rate”
The said market is expected to grow from USD 211.8 million in 2016 to USD 497.9 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 15.31% during the forecast period. The high demand for autonomous underwater vehicle worldwide by the countries for monitoring their sea borders and by the oil & gas industries is a key factor responsible for the growth of the AUV market. However, stringent government regulations on using AUVs in the countries such as United States is a key factor that is restraining the growth of the autonomous underwater vehicles market.

“Search and salvage operations application projected to grow at the highest rate”
The market for the search and salvage operations application is expected to grow at the highest rate among all the applications. Incidences such as Malaysia Airlines flight MH-370 crash have been a vital factor for driving the growth of the AUV market for search and salvage operations. AUVs are expected to be adopted as an important tool for carrying out search and salvage operations in cases such as airplane crash in oceans, crash of warships, and breakdown of other commercial water vehicles.

“Imaging technology is estimated to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022”
Imaging systems on AUVs are capable of capturing the pictures of the sea bed and the surrounding habitat which help the researchers in their oceanography or habitat research studies. Along with this, the growing awareness about the ability of the imaging systems to provide the exact information such as color and size of the objects present within the area under survey is one of the key factors which propel the growth of the imaging system market.

“North America is the major region for the AUV market”
The North American market is expected to hold the largest share in 2016, where the AUVs and its related products such as launch and recovery surface platforms are gaining momentum from various applications such as military & defense, oil & gas, environment protection and monitoring, oceanography, archeology and exploration, and search and salvage operation. The market in the APAC region is expected to grow at the highest rate. In the APAC region, especially in India, the plans to boost manufacturing under the project “Make in India” is one of the key driving factors for the AUV market in APAC.

reakdown of profile of primary participants:
