by Types and Applications"
report has been added to's

The unmanned underwater vehicle market is estimated to reach US$3.99 bn
by 2025.

The majority of the global UUV market is captured by the defense forces,
owing to the ever-increasing demand for subsea monitoring. Currently,
the adoption trend of UUVs is increasing among various commercial
sectors such as oil & gas exploration organizations, hydrographic and
oceanographic survey organizations, environmental monitoring
organizations & search, and recovery teams. The unmanned underwater
vehicles are also being adopted by various scientific research
organizations for conducting oceanic studies and maritime surveys, among

The major defense forces across the globe are experiencing maritime
security threats such as torpedo threats, underwater mines,
diesel-electric submarine attacks, and short-range anti-ship missiles
among other. Pertaining to these threats, the demand for technological
alternatives such as unmanned marine systems are peaking among the
defense forces, and advancement in technology has reduced the human risk
in critical and complex situations.

Although undersea vehicles operate with human interference, the demand
for unmanned solutions are increasing significantly over the time, and
due to rise in demand for such robotic technology, the developers are
integrating undersea drones with enhanced ISR systems in order to offer
the defense forces, with the advanced surveillance capabilities.

The applications of the unmanned underwater vehicle include oil & gas
exploration centers, hydrography, and oceanography, environmental
monitoring among others. The commercial sectors are increasingly
adopting the unmanned undersea technology in order to map and monitor
the conditions of sea or ocean as well as explore various oil & gas

The future market for the unmanned underwater vehicle is promising, as
the OEMs and other research centers are continually intending to deploy
smart and connected technologies, on the sub-sea for efficient
monitoring and operate without any human interference. As a result,
technologically enriched sensors systems are being developed, which is
expected to attract the significant number of industries in the coming

Due to high entry barrier to industry, fewer companies are entering the
market, also well-established companies operating in the market are
coming up with new offerings. Major manufacturers of the unmanned
underwater vehicle are based in North America and Europe region.
However, the new growth opportunities are emerging at an exponential
rate in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa region in
especially in countries such as China, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, and
UAE among others.
