Global offshore AUV & ROV market was valued USD 3.53 Billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at an impressive rate of 11.48% CAGR during 2021-2026.The global offshore AUV & ROV market is driven by the increasing offshore oil & gas discoveries in different countries across the globe. Additionally, these AUVs & ROVs help in detecting submerged rocks and obstructions and raise alarms & alerts. As a result of this they are highly preferred and used in the navigational system of marine vehicles. However, this is quite capital intensive and requires huge investment thereby restricting the market growth during the forecast period.

The exceptional services offered by autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) as well as remotely operated vehicles (ROV) have created a huge demand across the world. The excessive use of fossil fuels has led to an increasing adoption of AUV and ROV among end users across the world. The constantly rising demand for hydrocarbons has encouraged companies to focus on offshore drilling activities, to enhance green energy. The role of AUVs in studying seafloors before construction of subs-seas infrastructure has fueled the demand for AUVs in recent years. Additionally, the incorporation of technologies such as intelligent control systems and sensor-based steering will contribute to an increase in the demand for AUVs and ROVs across the world. The report encompasses several factors that have constituted an increase in the global offshore AUV and ROV market.

The global offshore AUV & ROV market is segmented based on product type, propulsion system, depth, application, end user, company, and region.
