Impact of Covid-19 on Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market:

The impact of COVID-19 on the AUV market and on consumer demand is currently unclear. However, it is estimated that there would be a short-term reduction in the production of AUVs as the oil & gas industry, which is the largest consumer of AUVs, is facing a shortage in demand for oil & gas. This shortage in demand for oil & gas is a result of travel restrictions imposed in a number of countries, such as Albania, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Japan, Jordan, New Zealand, Qatar, the Republic of Moldova, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, Ukraine, and China, to contain the spread of the virus.

However, the demand in the military segment is gradually increasing as many countries such as the US China and India have increased their defense budgets in 2021. In the case of military & defense applications, the effect of the pandemic is less dire. This can be mainly attributed to the constant demand, which is protected by budgeted government spending and a supply chain that has minimal exposure to disruptions (as countries mainly rely on local manufacturers for defense equipment).

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Increasing capital expenditure of companies in offshore oil & gas industry

The offshore industry basically includes oil & gas plants. The global energy demand has tripled in the past 50 years owing to several technological innovations in emerging economies. As traditional onshore reserves are continuously depleting, offshore resources are playing a key role in meeting this growing energy demand. This has led to the shifting of oil & gas production facilities to subsea regions. Also, AUVs have emerged as a cost-effective substitute for deepwater drilling operations as they eliminate the requirement of surface vessels and can operate autonomously. The use of small and portable AUVs has increased significantly over the past 5 years in the oil & gas sector. For instance, the ECA GROUP (France) entered into a partnership agreement with Petrus Resources (Canada), a global oil & gas services group, to offer inspection and survey services using an A18D AUV. Thus, the increase in offshore oil & gas production is one of the key drivers for the growth of the AUV market globally.

Rising defense spending in several countries worldwide

Security issues, concerns over contested territories, and threats have led to a significant increase in defense spending worldwide. Defense forces use AUVs for mine countermeasures; rapid environmental assessment; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance activities; harbor protection tasks & port clearance operations; and anti-submarine warfare. Hence, AUVs are expected to be used increasingly in the coming years to tackle underwater security threats, thereby leading to the growth of the market globally

Restraints: High operational costs of AUVs

AUVs are expensive maritime systems. For instance, the A18 AUV (ECA GROUP), with a depth rating of up to 3,000 m, has a cost ranging from USD 2–6 million. The deployment costs of AUVs used in exploration or surveying activities add to the actual cost of exploration and surveying missions. Moreover, the high costs of maintenance, manufacturing, research & development, and system complexity associated with AUVs are also resulting in their slow adoption, although they are being used increasingly in simple missions such as environmental monitoring.

Torpedo AUVs will have the highest growth in the coming years

Torpedo AUVs is expected to account for the highest growth of the overall Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market by 2026. Torpedo AUVs are widely adopted worldwide owing to their hydrodynamic shape, which results in less drag, high speed, and improved efficiency. They have an optimum surface area of the hull that makes them suitable for use in deep waters without compromising on their speed.

Sensors segment of AUV payload market is expected to hold the largest share in 2026

The large market size of the sensors segment can be attributed to their advantages such as it is widely used in AUVs for scanning, detecting, mapping, and remote sensing applications. AUVs use them for mapping underwater environments and detecting objects of interest for antisubmarine warfare (ASW) missions and pipeline inspections. Sensors are also used to identify the location of ferrous objects in the seabed, examine undersea cables, and detect and classify a wide variety of chemicals in seawater.

AML Oceanographic (US), EvoLogics GmbH (Germany), and CODAR Ocean Sensors (US) are some of the key suppliers of sensors used in AUVs.

APAC is attributed to grow at the highest CAGR in Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market during the forecast period (2021-2026)

The Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market in APAC has been segmented into China, Japan, and India, which are the fastest-growing market for AUVs. Factors such as increased military spending, growing need for energy in emerging economies, and the rising adoption of AUVs in various application areas are driving the growth of the AUV market in APAC. The demand for AUVs for mine exploration and oceanographic studies has increased significantly in the past few years. In addition, the rising military capabilities of developing nations such as India and South Korea are expected to boost the demand for AUVs in APAC.
