The global underwater robotics market size is expected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the increasing use of robotics for security applications underwater as well as various commercial and scientific exploration into oceans.

Underwater Robotics Market Key Takeaways

Underwater robotics, also called as underwater drones, are sub-aquatic vehicle or semi-aquatic machine primarily designed to explore or conduct research underwater. It is basically deployed to undertake several functions such as measuring temperature to level of salinity besides observing the direction and speed of the current of the ocean. With the wider research, these robotics are increasingly used for continuous aquatic surveillance. There are two types of operating system for these machines namely autonomous underwater vehicles and remotely operated vehicles. These machines are widely deployed for ocean research such as mapping the seafloor and ocean ecosystem as these devices can go to remote and unexplored places where it is difficult and dangerous for human to go in. Moreover, these machines are also used for both scientific research and commercial exploration in oceans in search of finding valuable objects including minerals and aquatic plants for medicinal and business purposes.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increasing expansion of the offshore drilling industry to extract deep-sea oil presents a key factor for the market expansion.
  • Rising demand and high adoption of the robots in defense applications including aquatic surveillance and anti-warfare purposes are another key drivers of the market.
  • Increasing use in scientific research to examine the changing environment of oceans presents a key factor boosting the market.
  • High cost of the machines and expensive maintenance cost of these robots are key challenges that can hinder the market expansion.
  • Ongoing massive R&D programs for development of highly advanced underwater robots is offering several growth opportunities of the market.

Market Segment Insights

Commercial exploration segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR

On the basis of applications, the market is segregated into commercial exploration, scientific research, defense & security, and others. The commercial exploration segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period due to the increasing exploration of oceans for offshore oil, mining, and gas. The availability of several other underwater operation equipment for assembling, drilling, underwater repair, and maintenance play crucial role for the commercial exploration. On the other hand, the defense & security segment is anticipated to account for a major market share during the forecast period owing to growing use of robotics as defense mechanism to determine any marine-based military attack.

Underwater Robotics Market By Applictions

Remotely operated vehicle segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace

Based on types, the global underwater robotics market is bifurcated into remotely operated vehicles and autonomous underwater vehicles. The remotely operated vehicles (ROV) segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to easy and convenient control of the vehicles in research operation of oceans even during extreme temperature and other dangerous conditions. ROV is widely used in drilling process of offshore deep-sea oil exploration. However, the autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) segment is anticipated to hold a key share of the market in the coming years owing to increasing demand and adoption of the vehicles type in defense applications including surveillance, mine counter measurement, and anti-warfare application.

North America is anticipated to constitute a key market share

In terms of regions, the market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to constitute a key share of the market during the projected period owing to massive investment in offshore oil and gas exploration activities across oceans. In 2016, Washington allocated a budget of USD 600 million to expand intelligence system of the US Navy for effective operation of aquatic surveillance. However, the market of Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the increasing adoption of underwater robotics for several applications including oil & gas exploration activities besides putting these robotics for defense purposes in major economies such as India, China, and Japan.
