Global Military UUV Market to be worth up to US$10.17 bn by 2030

Amsterdam, NL - January 24, 2022 -

Offering great opportunities, the global military UUV market is projected to grow to US$10.17 by 2030, at a CAGR of 10.2% from 2022 to 2030.
Unmanned Underwater Systems have been in use for years but mostly in MCM operations. The latest technological advancements, increase in global defense spending and major R&D programs will provide a solid ground for the fast expansion of the market.
New technologies and UUV concepts will allow users to launch them not only from ships but from ports as well. UUVs will definitely change the face of naval operations, in a world where major powers are competing again in littoral and blue waters.
To understand how important these systems are, someone must put them in a wider political and socio-economic context. The majority of the Earth’s surface is covered by sea, 40% of the population lives within 100 km from the coastlines, shipping is the blood of global commerce, many natural resources are found in the mostly unexplored oceans, security risks are on the rise and the littorals waters are an area where naval forces will have to operate in the future.
Being unmanned, UUVs will allow naval and security commanders to keep their staff out of harm’s way, and increase operational tempo in high threat areas without risking large and expensive platforms. When combined with USVs, UAVs and C4ISR systems they will fill-in the gaps that would otherwise be too risky or too expensive to do so, thus offering a crucial operational advantage against low-intensity or peer-to-peer threats.
For all these reasons the use of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles will bring a revolution in military affairs and changes in operations of oil & gas, engineering, marine science and other civilian activities.
