The global unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market was valued at USD 1,513.0 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 3,096.0 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 12.5% during 2020-2025. The growth of this market is attributed towards rapid need for mapping data pertaining to ocean globally along with extensive requirement for maritime security. These vehicles are extremely efficient in estimating the threats and monitoring water quality. In order to prevent water bodies from getting contaminated the government authorities globally are undertaking initiatives in order to combat this situation and unmanned surface vehicle performs significant role and helps the government in conducting surveillance.Unmanned surface vehicle (USV) commonly known as autonomous surface vehicles operates on the water surface without any requirement of crew or person on it. These vehicles are considered to be extremely affordable as compared to that of other research and weather vehicles. The unmanned auto pilot system (UAPS20) drives this vehicles and is extremely beneficial in discovering places where climatic condition is rough and enables smooth collection of data without putting life at stake for any individual. Increasing benefits of this vehicle is thereby strengthening the growth of global unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market.
Increasing research and development activities in the hydrography and oceanography field along with rapid need for monitoring anti-submarine warfare and ocean quality are the key trends witnessed in the global unmanned surface vehicle market.
Extensive contamination undertaking in the ocean fresh waters and requirement of preventing the contamination along with increasing need for trustable, highly advances and reliable USVs specifically in the military domain are the key factors that are driving the growth of global unmanned surface vehicle market. Unmanned surface vehicle in military domain is used for mine hunting and discovering seaborne targets. Moreover, USVs are considered to be crucial vehicles for using it in hydrographic survey. Utilizing small USV in parallel to conventional survey vessels act as a force multiplier aims at doubling survey coverage and thereby reducing the on-time site.
Geographically, North America is the largest unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market and is expected to generate largest revenue by 2025. The growth of the market in this region is attributed towards increasing incidents of violence in countries along with rampant technological upgradation. Moreover, the U.S. is considered to be the largest operator, developer and developer of USVs that is further escalating the growth of unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market.
Moreover, Europe is expected to witness highest CAGR during the forecast period due to extensive demand for water quality monitoring and ocean data mapping. Furthermore, rampant demand for autonomous surface vehicles used by navies for ISR activities and oceanographic studies are other factors driving the growth of unmanned surface vehicle market in this region.
Key players in the unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market are catering to the demand of these devices by investing in technologically advanced products in their product portfolio across the globe.
Some of the major players operating in the global unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market are Textron Inc., ECA Group, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, ASV Global, Israel Aerospace Industries, Atlas Elektronik, Teledyne Technologies, 5G International, SeaRobotics, Liquid Robotics, Maritime Robotics, and Elbit Systems.
