Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast 2025

According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the global autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.

An autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is a self-driven device that conducts underwater survey missions without any human help. It is primarily employed for remote navigation, detection, and mapping, pertaining to diverse marine-based applications. These applications generally include collision avoidance, marine exploration, communication, imaging, archaeological research, etc. As a result, AUVs are widely adopted across diverse sectors, such as oil and gas, defense, scientific research, oceanography, archaeological exploration, aquaculture, etc.

Market Trends
The global market for AUVs is primarily driven by the expanding oil and gas industry. The oil and gas companies are increasingly adopting AUVs for offshore explorations, underwater monitoring, installing new infrastructures, and deep-water oil/gas production activities. Moreover, a significant growth in the military and defense sectors has also augmented the demand for AUVs for underwater monitoring and surveillance. Besides this, the market is further catalyzed by the growing number of marine exploration activities for mineral and ore extraction. Rapid integration of AUVs with connectivity-temperature-depth (CTD) and biogeochemical sensors, along with the emergence of the Internet-of-Underwater Things (IoUT), will further continue to drive the market growth in the coming years.
