Report Code: SE 3671 Apr, 2020, by marketsandmarkets.com

[188 Pages Report] According to MarketsandMarkets, the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market (without payload) is projected to grow from USD 638 million in 2020 to USD 1,638 million by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.8% from 2020 to 2025. AUVs are widely used in the oil & gas industry for oil & gas reserve exploration and pipeline monitoring applications. Increase in the capital expenditure in the offshore industry is a key driver fueling the growth of the AUV market.  

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market

The large AUVs segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025.

The large AUVs segment of the AUV market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing demand for large AUVs for use in military & defense and oil & gas exploration applications is fueling the growth of this segment of the market. For instance, in March 2020, MSUBS (UK) received a contract from the British Royal Navy to develop the world’s largest extra-large unmanned underwater vehicle (XLUUV), which is expected to be 100-feet in length with the capability to carry weapons. The capability of large AUVs to operate at great depths (more than 1,000 m) also make them suitable for oceanography, habitat research, and search & salvage operations.

The imaging technology segment of the AUV market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The imaging segment of the AUV market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increased use of AUVs in military & defense and offshore industries. Imaging systems used in AUVs are capable of capturing pictures of the seabed and surrounding areas. The use of imaging systems in AUVs makes them suitable for habitat research, fishery study, oceanography, and archeology & exploration applications. The sub-bottom profilers used with AUVs penetrate sediments on the seafloor, allowing the detection of layers within sediments. This type of imaging is extensively used in the oil & gas industry for the exploration of oil & gas reserves.

The military & defense segment to hold the largest share of the AUV market from 2020 to 2025.

In 2020, the military and defense segment is expected to hold the largest share of the payload-mounted AUV market. Countries such as the US, Canada, France, and China are increasingly adopting AUVs for military & defense applications; this is driving the growth of the AUV market. For instance, Cellula Robotics (Canada) received a contract from the Canadian Defense Science and Technology Organization for the development of the Solus-LR long-range unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). The design phase of this vehicle started in early 2019 that was followed by its development and factory testing. The archeology & exploration segment of the market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. AUVs can be 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.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Market

The AUV market in APAC expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The increasing adoption of advanced underwater systems in emerging economies in APAC, including China and India, is resulting in significant growth opportunities for the manufacturers of AUVs in this region. For instance, in February 2020, Kongsberg Maritime (Norway) received a contract for providing a Hugin AUV system to the Indian National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT). The Hugin AUV system ordered by NIOT can be operated at depths of up to 6,000 meters and is expected to be equipped with a KONGSBERG HISAS 1032 synthetic aperture sonar and EM2040 multibeam echo sounder, designed for hydrographic and seabed classification applications. India has adopted Adamya AUV with a depth rating of 1,500 m. It can be launched from submarine torpedo tubes and surface ships. Adamya AUV can be used for hydrographic surveys, underwater mine detection and countermeasure operations, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions.

The study involved the estimation of the current size of the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market. Exhaustive secondary research has been carried out to collect information about the market and its peer markets. It has been followed by the validation of findings, assumptions, and sizing with the industry experts across the value chain through primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches have been employed to estimate the complete size of the market. It has been followed by the market breakdown and data triangulation methods to estimate the size of different segments and subsegments of the market.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources have been referred to for identifying and collecting information pertinent to this study on the AUV market. Secondary sources include annual reports; press releases; investor presentations; white papers; journals and certified publications; and articles by recognized authors, directories, and databases. Secondary research has been conducted to obtain key information about the supply chain of the industry, value chain of the market, the total pool of key players, market segmentation according to the industry trends (to the bottommost level), geographic markets, and key developments from both market- and technology-oriented perspectives.

After the complete market engineering (which include calculations for the market statistics, market breakdown, data triangulation, market size estimations, and market forecasting), extensive primary research has been carried out to gather information, as well as to verify and validate the critical numbers obtained for the AUV market.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after gaining knowledge about the current scenario of the AUV market through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with the market experts from both demand (commercial survey conductors) and supply (AUV manufacturers and distributors) sides across 4 major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Rest of the World (RoW). Approximately 20% and 80% of primary interviews have been conducted with parties from the demand side and supply side, respectively. Primary data has been collected through questionnaires, emails, and telephonic interviews.

Market Size Estimation

In the complete engineering process, both top-down and bottom-up approaches, along with several data triangulation methods, have been used to estimate and validate the size of the AUV market and other dependent submarkets. Key players in the market have been determined through primary and secondary research. This entire research methodology involved the study of the annual and financial reports of the top market players and extensive interviews with industry experts such as chief executive officers (CEOs), vice presidents (VPs), directors, and marketing executives for key insights (both qualitative and quantitative) about the AUV market. All percentage shares, splits, and breakdowns have been determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources. All the possible parameters that affect the market segments covered in this research study have been accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to get the final quantitative and qualitative data. This data has been consolidated and supplemented with detailed inputs and analyses from MarketsandMarkets and presented in the report.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the overall market size using the estimation processes explained above, the AUV market has been split into several segments and subsegments. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures have been employed, wherever applicable, to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics of each market segment and subsegment. The data has been triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both demand and supply sides for AUVs.
