According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market is accounted for $537.04 million in 2019 and is expected to reach $2,130.77 million by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 18.8% during the forecast period. Increasing capital expenditure of companies in offshore oil & gas industry and rising defense spending of countries worldwide are the major factors driving the market growth. However, a high operational cost of AUVs is restraining the market growth. Moreover, development and incorporation of advanced technologies in AUVs would provide ample opportunities for the market growth.

Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is a self-controlled robotic machinery used to survey water bodies, sea beds, and check the chemical and biological properties of water. AUVs are capable of providing highly accurate data and information such as superior quality maps of the deep seafloor. Autonomous underwater vehicles are unmanned and controlled via remote sensors and are mounted with high-resolution video cameras, mechanical manipulators, as well as automatic tools that are capable of drilling and collecting samples.

Based on type, the large AUVs (more than 1,000 meters) segment is likely to have a huge demand. Increasing demand for large AUVs for use in military & defense and oil & gas exploration applications is fueling the growth of this segment of the market. By geography, Asia Pacific is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of advanced underwater systems in emerging economies in APAC, including China and India, is resulting in significant growth opportunities for the manufacturers of AUVs in this region.

Some of the key players profiled in the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market include Atlas Elektronik GmbH, BAE Systems, Bluefin Robotics, Boeing, Boston Engineering Corporation, ECA Group, Fugro, Graal Tech, Hydromea S.A., International Submarine Engineering (ISE), Kongsberg Maritime, L3Harris Oceanserver, Lockheed Martin Corporation, SaaB AB and Teledyne Marine.
