Visiongain Publishes Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) Market Report 2021-2031

06 September 2021

Visiongain has published a new report entitled the Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) Market Report 2021-2031: Forecasts by Operations (Remotely Operated Surface Vehicle, Autonomous Surface Vehicle), by System (USV Propulsion System, USV Communication System, USV Payload System, USV Chassis Material, USV Component, USV Software), by Hull Operation (Kayak (Single Hull), Catamaran (Twin Hulls), Trimaran (Triple Hulls), Rigid Inflatable Hull), by Application (Environmental Monitoring, Inland & Offshore Survey, Security & Rescue, Cargo Shipping, Oceanographic Survey), by Endurance (<100 Hours, 100-500, Hours, 500-1000, Hours, >1000 Hours) AND Regional and Leading National Market Analysis PLUS Analysis of Leading USV Companies AND COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios.

The global unmanned surface vehicle (USV) market was valued at US$xx million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period 2021-2031. The growing use of USVs in military applications such as border and littoral zone patrol, submarine hunting, minesweeping, ISR, offensive capabilities, and seaborne targets is projected to support the market's robust expansion. During the forecast period, the market is expected to benefit from the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in unmanned naval vehicles to better combat operations for command-and-control applications. Furthermore, the expanding commercial applications of USVs in oceanography, exploration, and environmental sciences are likely to boost the market's growth in the near future. The growing demand for USVs in the oil and gas industry is projected to create profitable business possibilities for the market.

How has COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) Market?
In all industries worldwide, COVID affected supply chains. The military industry is often resilient to global commercial shocks, although cushion defense characteristics have faded in recent years. Although it is still too early to predict precisely whether the industry is flat, shrinking or growing unaffected by the global pandemic, it is very important that defense companies identify what the major impact points are and assess the potential of defense undertakings to influence business plans, supply chains and the underlying lines. This will help to form steps to prevent the storm from happening to companies. Supply side shocks may be one of the most obvious outcomes of the defense pandemic. The initial victims of this pandemic are companies which are based in nations that are hardly touched by the virus or are dependent on supply chains in the countries concerned.

The supplier chain and resource patterns of DTIB will also effect the production, since supply side limitations are more likely to be facing production waits with branching supply networks. The European DTIB has a fair number of branching supply chains with a final platform or solution of multiple components and subsystems from different suppliers. Regulation and repriorisation of the supply chain manufacturing tasks could have an effect on defense production. The probability of such activities cannot be ruled out, particularly when governments are distracting equipment for manufacturing medical devices such as fans.

What are the current market drivers?

A Platform of Unmanned Surface Vehicle Swarms for Real Time Monitoring in Aquaculture Environments
Aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing food industries. Aquaculture accounted for 47 percent of global fish output, which peaked at over 171 million tons. Aquaculture has been responsible for the continued remarkable rise in the availability of fish for human consumption, despite rather stagnant capture fisheries production. an end-to-end mobile solution for real-time monitoring of aquaculture settings The entire system comprises data collecting equipment, which is comprised of a fleet of USVs outfitted with aquatic and environmental sensors.

The Shipping Industry Is Moving into A New Era with Unmanned and Autonomous Ships
The maritime sector is entering a new age with unmanned and autonomous ships, which will cut emissions while also reducing accidents caused by human mistake. However, others say that the individual, from those who design the system to those who monitor the ship, is still in the loop. As a result, the likelihood of additional undiscovered human mistakes is considerable. The shipmaster or operator will no longer be onboarding the ship, but will instead be stationed in one of eight Shore Control Centers (SCC). If there are any emergencies or unforeseen situations that the automation cannot manage, he must be ready to step in. When watching the ships in the SCC, it might be difficult for the operator to obtain excellent SA. Only visual and auditory cues are provided via monitors. If the captain is onboard, he will use all of his senses to learn about the sea and how the ship reacts to it and the weather. The operator risks losing SA unless a well-designed method to replace the sensory information is found.

Where are the market opportunities?

The Supply of Ship Officers To The Shipping Industry Will Not Be Sufficient In Future Years
In the next years, the supply of ship officers will be insufficient for the maritime sector. the scarcity of ship officers would increase in the future years as a result of the increasing number of new structures coming on line and the unwillingness of young people to go to sea. The study found that the current moderate shortage of ship officers in the world merchant fleet will not be resolved unless training is increased or measures are taken to address the situation, and that the current global supply will likely not meet future demand for officers in the next five to ten years.

Enhance The Safety of Navigation and Resolve The Problem Of Human Errors In Maritime Accidents
Because of different navigational duties and paper work throughout the journey, the ship officer's responsibilities are growing. Schedules would be particularly tighter for coastal cruises. The navigating officers would be stressed by frequent port calls and lengthy hours of sailing in crowded coastal waters. Due to the insufficient number of navigating officers on board, these stressors may arise as a result of a severe workload, resulting in tiredness and exhaustion. The navigating officer is frequently left in charge of the bridge while also being required to react to circumstances that may not be appropriately seen or responded. Despite the fact that the STCW Convention places strict competency standards for navigating officers, things might go wrong when they are under continual stress
