Market Highlights

The global underwater robotics market spans across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world.

Underwater robots are capable of carrying torpedoes and missiles to submarines. Their robust and scalable design makes their operation easy and stealthy in seas and oceans. Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) are primarily developed for military applications and are now used for deep-sea mining by the offshore oil & gas sector and other industries. Similarly, the adoption of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) technology has been rapid in recent years by the oceanographic research, defense, and offshore energy sectors. Underwater robots equipped with directed-energy weapons, hypersonic weapons, artificial intelligence, sensors, and other payloads can be operated remotely. These robots can sustain harsh sea environments for longer durations, which makes them suitable for use in underwater missions. In recent years, the demand for surveillance of oceans has increased owing to factors such as increasing microbial degradation of sediments in coastal regions and rising extraction of minerals, hydrocarbons, and seafood from the sea. Humans have largely exploited these resources, which has increased the need for surveillance of the sea and ocean. Underwater robots can be used for pipeline inspection, marine life observation, underwater repair, and environmental disaster assessment, which involves stationary observation.

The geographic analysis of the Underwater Robotics Market Research has been conducted for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. North America dominated the global underwater robotics market in 2019 due to the presence of various companies in the region and high investments made by the military and defense agencies in underwater robotics. Furthermore, the increasing demand for the safety of individuals and for gathering useful insights from the oceans associated with minerals, archaeology, marine life, and intelligence are some of the key pointers on which the countries in the region are focused. However, the Asia-Pacific region is considered the fastest-growing market. It is projected to record the highest CAGR of 15.8% during the forecast period due to the increasing investments made by the countries in the region to strengthen their military forces.
