Report Highlights

By Technology (Collision Avoidance, Communication, Propulsion, Imaging, Navigation, Sonar), Type (Shallow AUVs, Medium AUVs, Large AUVs), End User (Commercial, Military & Defense, Scientific), and Regional Market Size, Status and Forecast to 2025

Market Overview:
The Global Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Market was valued at USD 312.24 million in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 1918.33 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 22.35% from 2017 to 2025.

An Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) is a robot that travels underwater without requiring input from an operator. AUVs are programmed at the surface, and then navigate through the water on their own, collecting data such as temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen, detect chlorophyll from microscopic marine algae, and measure concentrations of small particles in the water, map the seafloor and collect images of the seafloor and the midwater. Benefits of AUVs include - highly stable and agile, provides accurate target location, low deployment costs, high reliability and improved data quality.
