The global autonomous underwater vehicle market size was valued at USD 1.78 Billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 5.93 Billion by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 14.3% during the forecast period 2023 - 2031. The market growth is attributed to the rising demand from the oil & gas industries for research purpose.

Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are unmanned, untethered underwater vehicles that are self-propelled. These vehicles are mobile instrumentation platforms with actuators, sensors, and onboard intelligence to successfully complete survey and sampling tasks with little or no human supervision to provide high-quality data. The adoption of AUVs for oceanographic, commercial, and military missions has increased drastically in recent years, surging AUV operations.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Market

AUVs are programmable robotic vehicles that can drift, drive, or glide across the ocean without real-time control by a human operator, depending on their design. Some AUVs communicate with operators periodically or continuously through satellite signals or hydroacoustic beacons, allowing them to have some degree of control. AUVs allow scientists to conduct other experiments from surface ships, and AUVs can collect data on the surface or elsewhere in deep water.

Some AUVs can make their own decisions and change mission profiles based on environmental data received through sensors while driving. AUVs require precise navigation systems for localization, positioning, tracking, guidance, and control over long work cycles. It is necessary to derive adaptive algorithms for estimating AUV dynamics to develop accurate and robust navigation and control systems for AUVs.

AUVs play a vital role in the supervision of oceans and seas that measures physical characteristics, temperature, oxygen level, salinity, and depth of water due to high accuracy technology. It helps to collect the data through numerous sensors by imaging and is often used as a platform for mapping the floor of the ocean and sea. AUVs ensure the safety of underwater natural resources as it helps to assist divers who perform important tasks within the depth of water.

COVID-19 Impact on Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Market

The market report finds that the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted on the global autonomous vehicle market.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Market Dynamics

Drivers

Increasing use of AUVs in defense

Growing need for maritime security for threats, ocean data, and mining, and increasing number of offshore oil & gas activities boost the market. Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are increasingly used for the navy and military & defense applications. Navy widely uses an autonomous underwater vehicle for various functions such as intelligence, mine countermeasures, surveillance & reconnaissance, and anti-submarine warfare.

Rising surveillance activities for security, and surging defense expenditure in numerous countries drive the market. According to World Population Review, in 2020, the total world military expenditure was about USD 1.981 trillion. The United States has the highest military spending of any nation.

In 2020, the U.S. spent $778 billion on military spending, more than the next nine top-spending countries combined.  Following the United States is China, spending $252 billion and India, spending $72.9 billion.

Growing exploration of new oil fields and offshore activities

AUVs are widely used in exploration activities in oceans for various underwater applications, including the production of oil & gas, offshore activities, scientific research, and security. For instance, in 2019, many major corporations including Shell, Chevron, Repsol, and Equinor, discovered oil reservoirs in the Gulf of Mexico. Shell successfully completed deepwater well-exploration projects, that found oil around 400 feet deep in the ocean.

Demand for energy has significantly increased over the years, due to technological innovations in developing countries. The infrastructure of the oil and gas industry is the core of the offshore business. Offshore resources cater to the growing demand for energy, as conventional coastal resources are continuously declining. This propels production facilities to move to offshore areas for oil & gas.

According to the International Energy Agency, the demand for global natural gas is projected to increase by approximately 1.5% in the coming years. Production of oil and gas is increasing in the Middle East, including Qatar, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Iran, due to the growing number of conventional projects in the region. The oil and gas industry is extensively using autonomous underwater vehicles for mapping the seabed before starting the subsea projects, which propels the market.

Rapid expansion of aquaculture across the globe

Wide expansion of aquaculture across the globe at a rapid pace is a major factor driving the growth of the global autonomous underwater vehicle market in the coming years. AUVs provides a reliable platform to aqua farmers to perform various underwater tasks. It helps in monitoring aqua farmers regarding water quality and temperature. AUVs observe overall behavior of aquatic animals during the feeding process in aquaculture that helps to maintain aquatic life balance.

Restraints

AUVs are equipped with numerous sensors, networks, and hardware for navigation systems, linked to signal transmission for immediate communication and data acquisition. Signal transmission and communication are the main difficulties in underwater engineering, due to transmission distortions that occur underwater. Networks designed for rapid confirmation and communication do not work underwater.

Acoustic signals are slower than radio waves, taking two seconds to travel a mile and back. This reduces consistency and causes operational failures in many applications that require real-time data. Numerous factors are expected to interfere with signal transmission, due to environmental conditions such as refraction, reflection, and signal absorption. These factors are anticipated to restrain market growth.

Furthermore, electromagnetic (EM) waves work inefficiently in underwater environments beyond 200 meters, due to the conductivity of ocean water. Free-space light waves (FSO), which travel short distances, are not suitable for AUVs. Thus, AUVs use low-velocity sound waves for deep-sea surveys. Absorption, refraction, and scattering of signals emitted by AUVs in the seawater affect their propagation. Reflections are caused by signals bouncing off the ocean floor or passing through layers of water separated by differences in temperature and density.

High-pressure levels in the depth of water slow down signal transmission speeds, creating background noise and echoes. Underwater communication requires high power levels, due to the requirement of complex signal processing. Ecological disturbances caused by waves, weather changes, ocean currents, and wind patterns have a significant impact on AUV underwater communications. All of these factors present challenges for AUV operators and adversely impact market growth.

Emerging Opportunities

Major market players in almost every industry rely on the development of innovative products. Companies are investing in developing a high level of innovation and technologically advanced products. Researchers in Japan are working to map the country's vast seafloor and identify its mineral resources using a fleet of autonomous underwater vehicles guided by rugged autonomous surface vehicles.

National Maritime Research Institute (NMRI) is looking for alternative approaches for extracting rare-earth minerals. A small fleet of AUVs is continuously monitored and, if necessary, brought back to trucks by dedicated autonomous water vehicles produced by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI). In 2022, the government of Japan is expected to finish its second phase of the initiative and conclude sea trials.

The trials involve the use of one autonomous surface vehicle to supervise five AUVs operating at a 2,000m depth. Fujiwara aims to deploy multiple autonomous water vehicles to conduct seabed surveys. AUV is produced as a robust, cost-effective, and practical vehicle that operates continuously for 5 days while reliably maintaining its position in harsh sea conditions. Furthermore, US-based C&C Technologies is known for developing the first commercial autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for oil and gas exploration.
