Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) Market by Type (Shallow, Medium, Large), Application (Commercial, Scientific Research, Defense) & Geography (North America, Europe, APAC, RoW) - Analysis & Forecast to 2020

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), also known as unmanned underwater vehicles are used to perform underwater survey missions such as detecting and mapping submerged wrecks, rocks, and obstructions that pose a hazard to navigation for commercial and recreational vessels. The application of autonomous underwater vehicles technology has evolved in the commercial sector where the number of AUVs being used for offshore surveys and other tasks is increasing at a rapid pace. The global autonomous underwater vehicles market is led by North America accounting for a share of 63% in 2014. The autonomous underwater vehicles market based on application is mainly led by defense and commercial sectors. As the autonomous underwater vehicles technology continues to improve; it is expected to find new applications across sectors and in different geographic regions where autonomous underwater robots are rarely used at present.
