The market for autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is expected to grow from USD 362.5 Million in 2017 to USD 1,206.9 Million by 2023, at a CAGR of 22.20% between 2017 and 2023. The growth of this market can be attributed to factors such as the growing importance of more reliable security measures worldwide and the increasing offshore oil & gas production.

Among all applications, the autonomous underwater vehicle market for archeological and exploration applications is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. AUVs are widely used as an important tool for underwater exploration activities to extract minerals such as cobalt, zinc, and magnesium; these minerals are used in the fabrication of smartphones, laptops, and hybrid cars, among others. However, military & defense applications are expected to hold the largest share of the autonomous underwater vehicle market in 2017.

The market for large AUVs is expected to grow at a high rate between 2017 and 2023. Large AUVs can operate at a depth of more than 1,000 meters and are widely used for hydrographic exploration, deep ocean search, and deep water surveys. The AUVs intended for exploration activities in deep waters are specifically used for deep water mapping and surveying applications, including pipe surveys for the oil & gas sector. There is a growing demand for new energy sources worldwide, which can be met with the help of large AUVs as this type of AUVs can reach great depths underwater.

Navigation technology held a major share of the AUV market in 2016. As navigation information, such as the location of an autonomous underwater vehicle, is essential for the safe operation and recovery of an autonomous underwater vehicle, this technology is critical for achieving an accurate mission completion. However, among all the technologies, the AUV market for imaging technology is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023.

Among all the payloads that can be mounted on an AUV, cameras held the largest share of the AUV payload market in 2016. However, the market for sensors is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. The growth of the market for sensors can be attributed to the increasing adoption of sensors in scanning, detecting, mapping, and remote sensing applications.

North America held the largest share of the autonomous underwater vehicle market in 2016. The increasing adoption of AUVs for military & defense applications in the US is driving the growth of the AUV market in North America. However, among all regions, the AUV market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023. The rising need for energy, along with the high GDP growth rate, in developing countries in APAC, such as China and India, is creating huge opportunities for manufacturers of AUVs in this region.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market

Though the demand for AUVs has been increasing rapidly in almost all sectors, there are a few restrictions imposed by the governments and defense authorities in various countries, such as the US, on using AUVs. Some of these international, federal, state, and local authorities include the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Trade Commission, and the US Department of State and Defense Regulations. In addition, the high operation costs of AUVs are limiting the growth of the market.

Kongsberg Maritime has a well-established portfolio of AUVs. The company, with the help of its subsidiaries, has been successfully meeting the need of its customers in Europe, the Americas, and APAC. The company focuses on consistently improving the efficiency and productivity of its products. Kongsberg Maritime invests significantly in the development of cost-effective products and system solutions. The company intends to establish a strong position in all the segments of the AUV market and develop a portfolio of after-market activities and services. The company’s strong R&D capabilities have helped it sustain its leading position in the growing AUV market. However, the company witnessed a decrease of 74.80% in its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in 2016 compared with that in 2015 due to restructuring costs, significant impairments of inventories, currency hedging, and other project-related activities, such as relocation and reinstating. The company and its subsidiaries adopted product launches as their key business strategy in 2016. For example, in March 2016, Hydroid, Inc. (US), a subsidiary of Konsberg Gruppen ASA, launched the new-generation REMUS 100 AUV/marine robot.
