Fairfield Market Research Highlights that the Global AUV & ROV Market is Expected to Expand at a CAGR of 7.8% Between 2023 and 2030.

London, March 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — With some of the oil majors investing remarkably in E&P projects over the recent past, demand for autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), and remotely operated vehicles (ROV) technologies has been on an uptrend. Growing employment of these technologies in offshore equipment repair and maintenance, especially across the subsea sites that are used for production and exploration, will further propel revenue to the global AUV & ROV market as suggested by the latest published study of Fairfield Market Research. The company in its latest projections expects a strong growth outlook for the market, foreseeing the revenue to be hitting the mark of US$7 Bn by 2030 end.

North America’s AUV & ROV market continues to lead its way on the back of the unwavering offshore oil and gas interventions. Europe will also be an important pocket for potential investors as the region has been surging ahead in wind power projects. Growth across the developed western markets thus looks promising in the near term,” marks the analyst at Fairfield.
