Global Offshore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market - Forecast to 2024

Market analysis
As far the analysis, Autonomous operated vehicles (AUV) are unmanned submerged automobiles that are functioned without human intervention. The offshore autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) bids numerous types of shallow, medium, and large. The Global Offshore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market is probable to register a 15.70% CAGR during the prediction period. In this procedure, data is composed from several secondary foundations, counting annual reports, SEC filings, journals, government associations, aerospace & defense magazines, white papers, corporate presentations, company websites, and paid records. In October 2018, General Dynamics Corporation unveiled the Bluefin-9 UUV at the Oceans 2018 conference and exposition in Charleston, South Carolina for defense, academic, and marketable use.

The launch of Bluefin-9 UUV helped the company upsurge its customer base globally. Besides, AUVs are fortified with technologies such as communication, crash avoidance, navigation, imaging, and thrust. AUVs can carry numerous or combinations of payloads, including sensors, cameras, and synthetic aperture sonars, among others. Separately from their large-scale application in the oil & gas industry, AUVs are also used in businesses such as military & defense, oceanography, environmental protection & monitoring, archaeological & exploration, and search & salvage operations. In this process, both the demand- and supply-side parties are interviewed to excerpt facts and understandings into the market forecast, construction, trends, and projected market evolution. Industry stakeholders such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and marketing executives across the value chain are loomed to obtain key information. . In March 2019, ECA Group signed a 10-year bond worth USD 508.8 million (450 million Euros) with the Belgian navy. As per the terms of the agreement, it will provide AUVs, towed sonars, and mine identification & devastation systems (MIDS) composed of ROV for the documentation and destruction of mines, and the unmanned surface vehicles. It aided improve the company’s financial place in the global offshore AUV market.

Market Segmentation
The Global Offshore Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market has been segmented by type, by Type: Shallow, Medium, and Large, by Technology: Communication, Collision Avoidance, Navigation, Imaging, and Propulsion, by Payload: Sensors, Cameras, Synthetic Aperture Sonars, and Others, by Application: Military & Defense; Oil & Gas; Oceanography; Environmental Protection and Monitoring; Archaeological and Exploration; and Search and Salvage Operations and by Region: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America. In February 2018, ECA Group unveiled its average-sized AUV, A18-M dedicated to aggressive underwater excavations. It is dense and equipped with a tall-quality imagery system planned specifically for mine stalking. The exploration of oil & gas fields is now taking place at greater depths than ever before, making the service of humans unfeasible. Offshore AUVs are built to work in specific subsea applications such as internal pipe inspection of non-piggable lines, channel voyage inspection, drilling, growth, and repair, and subsea line assessment. The rising demand for AUVs in the oil & gas industry and the increase in military expenditure are some of the significant drivers for the advancement of the global offshore autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market. In 2018, North America settled for 40.94% of the global offshore autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) global market, followed by Europe, with around 21% of the global market share. Owing to the swelling demand for AUVs for mine detection, the launch of A18-M helped increasing its customer base globally. Rising acceptance of offshore AUVs by various countries for oil & gas exploration is further pushing the growth of the segment. In March 2019, Saudi Arabian Oil Co. deployed 200 Spice Rack autonomous subsea seismic acquisition units to behavior a seismic ocean bottom survey in the Red Sea. Consequently, the advanced features offered by AUVs is driving their adoption by the oil & gas industry. Hence, the oil & gas piece is expected to catalogue a advanced CAGR of 15.90% during the estimated period.
