The Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) or Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASV) are vessels that operates on the water surface without any crew. USV are valuable for oceanographic applications, as they are more useful than the weather buoys, but more cost-effective than the weather ships or equivalent research vessels, and more adaptable than commercial vessels. Global total Capex (capital expenditure) of USVs in 2025 will advance to $1.94 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 USVs for commercial purpose, defense & security, scientific research, and other applications.
