Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) are unoccupied underwater robots, connected to an operator via a series of cables which transmit command and control signals to and from the underwater vehicle and the operator, allowing remote navigation of the vehicles. The evolution of ROV technology has resulted in the ever-growing application in oil & gas industry, military/defense, scientific research and other sectors. Global total Capex (capital expenditure) of ROVs in 2025 will advance to $5.15 billion. This represents a continuous XX% increase yearly between 2016 and 2025 and a cumulative Capex of $XXX billion during 2017-2025 driven by the substantial adoption of ROVs for drilling support, construction support, as well as inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) activities.
