Global Marine Robotics Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Robots that are specifically designed to operate in marine environments. Marine robotics can be used for a variety of purposes, including surveying and mapping the ocean floor, studying marine life, and repairing underwater infrastructure.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles:

Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are robotic systems that can operate independently and are capable of performing tasks normally done by humans. AUVs have been developed over the past two decades for various applications in surface and sub-sea research, exploration, development, production & refining fields. The primary application areas include oil & gas exploration (petroleum), hydrography/seafloor mapping, oceanography/ meteorology and acoustic/sonar mapping.

Unmanned Surface Vehicle:

Unmanned surface vehicle (USV) is a type of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). USVs are used for performing military operations without any human intervention. They are equipped with sensors and can travel and perform in water as well as on land. These vehicles have been developed to meet specific requirements set by the armed forces of various countries.

Application Insights:

The defense segment dominated the global marine robotics market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing government funding for research and development activities related to UUV, AUV and MUUVs. Furthermore, growing demand for highly autonomous underwater vehicles by countries such as Japan and China is expected to drive the demand over the forecast period.

Commercial application includes applications such as oil & gas exploration where robots are used for mapping, inspection or sampling operations on the seabed. Increasing adoption of these systems due to benefits such as increased efficiency while drilling; reduced human injuries; improved data quality during inspection are some of themajor factors driving this segment over other segments within commercial application category.

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific regional market accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region is anticipated to witness significant growth owing to increasing demand from several industries, such as defense, oil & gas, marine exploration, and fishing. Moreover, rising investments by countries such as China and Japan are likely to boost industry development across this region.

The European regional market also held a considerable revenue share in 2017 owing to growing technological advancements across several countries of this region coupled with increased spending on research & development activities pertaining marine robotics technology.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for marine robots from the defense sector for maritime security and surveillance
  • Growing popularity of remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs) in the commercial sector for tasks such as pipeline inspection, seabed mapping, and deep-sea research
  • Development of advanced sensors and communication technologies that can improve the performance of marine robots
  • Proliferation of autonomous surface vessels (ASVs) for tasks such as fisheries management, oceanographic research, and port security
  • Increased funding from government agencies and private investors to support R&D activities in marine robotics
