Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) Market By Size (Small Size, Medium Size, Large Size, Extra-large Size), By Mode Of Operation (Semi-Autonomous, Autonomous), By Application (Defense, Scientific Research, Oil & Gas, Renewable Energy, Off-shore Survey, Commercial, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Landscape, 2019 – 2027

Industry Outlook

Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) are autonomous vehicles that are capable of float on water surface. Although unmanned aerial vehicles (USVs) have been around for past few years and their numbers are growing consistently. Despite the fact that these are still not as pervasive as their aerial versions, unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) have tremendous potential to set down their roots very deep. For several applications right from small vessels used security surveillance to autonomous cargo ships, it is sure that in coming years, numerous mariners will work from a home office. Consequently, unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) market is expected to reach US$ 4.88 Bn from US$ 1.62 Bn in 2018 growing with a growth rate of 11.7% throughout the forecast period from 2019 to 2027.

"Completely Autonomous USVs are Soon to Takeover the Market from Semi-autonomous Versions"

Unmanned surface vehicles are broadly classified into semi-autonomous and fully autonomous based on their mode of operation. At present, the market is dominated by semi-autonomous USVs, however, the segment is expected to lose its market share to autonomous version in coming years. With rapid proliferation of geo-location technologies, GPS systems and radar systems, fully autonomous USVs are anticipated to cement its position firm across different end-use applications. End-use applications such as defense, scientific survelliance, and other mission-critical application often prefer autonomous USV thus, encouraging the growth of this variant.
