Market Driver:

Surging Deep Water Oil & Gas Production to Facilitate Growth

The increasing gas and oil production and exploration activities will have a tremendous impact on the global market. For instance, in 2019, the Gulf of Mexico observed new oil discoveries by key companies such as Shell, Chevron, Repsol, and Equinor. Shell has been successful in deep-water well-exploration projects. The new exploration project is expected to produce more than 900,000 barrels of oil by 2020. The increasing energy demand will subsequently accelerate deep-sea exploration, which, in turn, will aid expansion of the market. The oil & gas industry is expected to account for the lion’s share in the world’s primary energy supply by 2050. The increasing utilization of unmanned underwater vehicles in the oil and gas industry can have an outstanding effect on the market in the forthcoming years. Moreover, the increasing commercial applications such as seafloor mapping or seabed imaging and pipeline disruption study in the sea environment will foster healthy unmanned underwater vehicles market growth.


Disrupted Oil Industry to Dampen Business Amid Coronavirus

COVID-19 had a severe impact on the industries due to the spread of the disease to almost 200+ countries worldwide. Moreover, the global oil industry experienced a sudden drop in demand across various countries. The oil demand is projected to fall 9.3 mb/d year-on-year in 2020 and 2021. According to UNCTAD, global maritime transport plunged by 4.1% in 2020 due to unexpected disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The disorder has mainly hampered the supply chain, shipping network, trade volumes, and port. However, the global Shipping industry is making efforts for sustainable recovery and smooth operations, which, in turn, will aid the market.
