This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market is accounted for $437.21 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $2,060.79 million by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 18.8% during the forecast period. Growing defense expenses of countries global and growing capital expenses of companies in offshore oil & gas manufacturing are the major factors propelling the market growth. However, factor such as high functioning costs of AUVS is hampering the Market growth.

An autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is an unmanned, untethered underwater vehicle that is used to carry out effortless activities with little or no human management. To map out the seafloor or characterize the physical, chemical properties of the water being tested this are frequently used as survey platforms. The adaptability of the configuration of AUV’s combined with the underwater vehicles capability to carry out an self-determining movement makes AUVs a powerful instrument in any underwater surveying or inspection job.

Based on the technology, the imaging segment is going to have a lucrative growth during the forecast period due to the improved use of AUVs in military & defense and offshore industries. Imaging systems used in AUVs are able to capturing pictures of the seabed and neighbouring areas. The use of imaging systems in AUVs makes them suitable for habitat research, oceanography, and archeology & exploration applications.

By geography, North America is likely to have a huge demand due to the increasing development activities undertaken by naval forces of countries such as the US for strengthening the navy is bolstering the market growth.
