Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), sometimes known as underwater drones, are any vehicles that are able to operate underwater without a human occupant. These vehicles may be divided into two categories, remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs), which are controlled by a remote human operator, and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), which operate independently of direct human input. Global total Capex (capital expenditure) of oil & gas UUVs in 2025 will advance to $XXX billion, representing a robust growth at 13.0% per annum between 2016 and 2025. The cumulative Capex of global oil & gas UUVs is expected to reach $XXX billion during 2017-2025 driven by the substantial rising adoption of ROVs and AUVs in oil & gas exploration and production.
