As an emerging technology, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is a robot which travels underwater without requiring input from an operator. They are unmanned submersible vehicles, independent of outside facilities or operators, and free-swimming. They have various applications in pipeline inspection, sub-sea inspection, sub-sea survey, cable inspection, sampling, oceanographic, environmental monitoring, iceberg profiling, under-ice surveys, countermeasures, underwater photography, and mine detection. Global total Capex (capital expenditure) of AUVs in 2025 will advance to $XXX billion, representing a fast growth at XX% per annum between 2016 and 2025. The cumulative Capex of global AUVs is expected to reach $20.2 billion during 2017-2025 driven by the substantial adoption of AUVs in a magnitude of industry verticals.
