Global Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market is valued approximately USD 0.52 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 20.8 % over the forecast period 2020-2027. Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) can be operated without human intervention, also available in several types, such as shallow, medium, and large. Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) are equipped with technologies such as communication, collision avoidance, navigation, imaging, and propulsion. AUVs used in wide range of industries such as military & defense, environmental protection & monitoring, oceanography, archaeological & exploration, and search & salvage operations. The global Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is being highly demanded due to the coronavirus pandemic. As AUV can be operated without human intervention. The increasing capital expenditure of companies in offshore oil & gas industry and rising defense spending of countries worldwide are the factors responsible for the growth of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market. For instance: as per Statista, the United States spend around USD 466.76 billion on its military in 2000 and the figure is increased by USD 718.69 billion military spending in 2019. Furthermore, the introduction of products and services and other strategic alliance by market key players will create a lucrative demand for this market. For instance: on 31st March 2020, Kongsberg Maritime launched LARS (Launch and Recovery System) solution for its HUGIN range of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). Launching and recovering AUVs under water, will lessen the possibility of damage , while boosting productivity to deliver significant cost savings. However, high operational costs of AUVs is the major factor restraining the growth of global Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) market during the forecast period.
