High adoption of autonomous robots for commercial and military purposes and demand for autonomous robots in logistics are the major factors for the growth of the global autonomous navigation market.
The autonomous navigation market size is expected to grow from USD 2.2 billion in 2018 to USD 13.5 billion by 2030, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.19% during the forecast period. The market for autonomous navigation is driven by factors such as defense forces across the globe resorting to modern warfare techniques like electronic warfare, information warfare, and network-centric warfare. These techniques require substantial battlefield-related data to control and monitor military operations on battlefields. This requirement has led to the increasing use of autonomous systems on battlefields to gather data through Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) activities on a real-time basis, which, in turn, requires advanced navigation systems. Lack of required infrastructure for autonomous systems in developing countries is limiting the overall growth of the market.

Sensing systems segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous navigation market in 2018.
Based on solution, the sensing systems segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous navigation market in 2018. There is increasing demand for autonomous robots which, in turn, has led to a rise in the demand for sensors for navigation. This is due to the fusion of the sensor data on which machine intelligence can be applied for decision making. These sensing systems include LiDAR, GNSS, Inertial Navigation System (INS), radar, cameras, ultrasonic systems, and acoustic navigation.

Increasing investment in the development of marine autonomous systems is expected to drive the market for marine segment
Based on platform, the marine segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous navigation market in 2018. Increasing investments in the development of autonomous vessels and autonomous surface vehicles, autonmous underwater vessels has driven its market.

Increasing investment in autonomous robots in the military and commercial sectors is expected to drive the autonomous navigation market in 2018

North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the autonomous navigation market in 2018.
