Underwater Drone Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2025.

Under water drones, also called as unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), are the vehicles which are capable of conducting underwater operations without human presence. These vehicles are either, remotely operated, which are directed by a remote human operator or fully autonomous, which can work without any human control, like a robot. The underwater drones have already been used by the military and defense authorities since a long time, but in the current scenario, the application platform of underwater drones is constantly expanding. Under water drones are well equipped with various types of cameras as per the requirement. A drastic usage of these drones has been witnessed among the oceanographers and filmmakers for making marine documentaries and other films. Today, everyone is focused on smart, quick and cheap way to execute even the most complicated tasks. Major market players such as Aquabotix has now come up with latest drone models which could be used by the fishermen in order to detect the actual location of shoals of fish. In addition to this, the constantly rising exploration activities in order to access natural oil and gas reservoirs is fueling the demand for underwater drones. Underwater drones have emerged out as an effective mode of getting underwater condition of rigs and monitoring the drilling processes. However, the high cost of camera equipped ROVs might act as a major challenge for the market. In terms of Geography, North America is expected to lead the global Underwater Drones Market owing to heavy R&D investment by military organizations and constantly rising Oil and Gas exploration activities as a result of shale boom in the region.
