Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) are the vehicles used for Defense, Research and Commercial Exploration Applications worldwide in shallow as well as ultra-deep waters. They are of two types Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) & Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), with the main difference being that the AUV does not require continuous human interference or control and operates according to the pre-programmed instructions and ROVs are controlled via a cord. High endurance, reliability of operation and accuracy in data collection are the desired qualities of an AUV while the ROVs need to have precise positioning ability and power to perform work underwater while maintaining neutral buoyancy.

As per a Recent Study by IndustryARC, the Global Market for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles was around $2.4 Billion in 2014 & will register a CAGR of 11.3% for the period 2015-2020. As quoted by the analyst Mr. Chinmay, the AUV Utilization rate for commercial applications will be on rise, registering a CAGR of around 25% for 2015-2020 & ROV Operations Market is projected to increase at around 7% comparatively. Asia-Pacific and African regions are estimated to register the higher growth rates of around 30% during the forecast period of the study.
North America and Europe are extensively using unmanned underwater vehicles for commercially finding new oil reserves along with its traditional use in defense and research activities. In 2014 these regions contributed around 45% and 30% respectively to the total revenue. Africa and Asia-Pacific regions contributed least towards revenue generation since very few large scale research expedition defense tasks are carried out using UUVs. Commercial use for exploration purposes has upped in recent past and the UUV Market in Asia-Pacific region has tremendous growth potential since the economies in this region are growing very fast and higher offshore activity is anticipated to fulfill the growing energy demand. Underwater unmanned vehicles are the best bet to explore large subsea areas to find new oil and gas reserves in shallow as well as deep-waters considering harsh environment and safety concerns.
Some Prominent Players in UUV Market includes:
- SAAB Seaeye
- Oceaneering International Inc.
- Deep Ocean Engineering
- FMC Schilling Robotics LLC
- Bluefin Corp
- Fugro Subsea
- ECA Robotics
- Forum Energy Technologies, & a few others
In 2014, the Defense & Research Segment combined contributed around 31% respectively and Commercial Segment contributed around 65% of the total unmanned underwater vehicles revenue. Defense and research market is immune to macroeconomic factors and is unlike the volatile nature of the offshore oil and gas industry. It is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17% during 2015-2020 while the commercial segment is estimated to register a CAGR of 8% for the same period. Also to note is the operations or rental market for underwater unmanned vehicles is estimated to register a healthy growth rate of around 11%.
Key Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) Manufacturing Companies Currently Include:
- Bluefin Robotics
- Teledyne Gavia
Woods Hole Oceanographic institute, Norwegian Defense Research Establishment and many other organizations are involved in design and development of AUVs to meet the requirements of the growing clientele across industry verticals.
Oceaneering is the largest ROV operating company by fleet size and also by revenue globally and they manufacture their own ROV and operate. Subsea7 has second largest ROV fleet and dominates the ROV market in South American region.
Higher capital investment in R&D, in-depth technical knowledge and upgraded infrastructure support requirements act as a barrier in adopting and utilizing this technology. The challenges faced by unmanned underwater vehicles industry include real-time communication and control at large depths and processing the huge amount of data collected and converting it into a comprehendible format. Considering overall scenario, it is evident that use of UUV has made security and defense tasks less hazardous to human life and research and commercial applications easier to execute at great depths. The technological advancements, in manipulator arms, navigation and positing systems, propulsion, battery capacity and improved range of sensors leading to higher efficiency and accuracy, are driving the Global Unmanned Underwater Vehicles Market.
