MARKET INTRODUCTION

The military unmanned surface vehicle market is expected to grow from US$ 1,512.32 million in 2021 to US$ 3,166.61 million by 2028 at a CAGR of 11.6% between 2022 to 2031.

Military unmanned surface vehicles or military USVs are suitable for unmanned surveillance, tactical water surface missions, and search and rescue missions conducted by naval forces. The development of large-sized, fully autonomous surface vehicles such as Sea Hunter and Sea Hawk used by the US Navy is likely to generate huge opportunities for military unmanned surface vehicle market vendors during the forecast period. Further, the USVs provide support to the armed forces across various applications that include mine warfare, including mine detection and neutralization; surface warfare such as armed forces support; military deception, including communication signals deception, radar signals deception, acoustic signals deception, decoy countermeasures, military information support operations, etc.; anti-submarine warfare capabilities; and other C4ISR capabilities.

The rising military expenditure is leading to a large number of operations related to the development, procurement, and advancement of USV technologies worldwide. Many countries are constantly increasing their allocated budgets and research activities for the development and procurement of USV technologies. For instance, according to the US DoD (Department of Defense), in 2021, the US Navy budget spending on USV & UUV technologies were ~US$ 941 million, which was a ~129% increase compared to 2019. Such factors are catalyzing the adoption of USVs across the world.

MARKET DYNAMICS

The rising adoption of underwater mine countermeasure systems is a major factor propelling the adoption of military USVs. Further, the mine detection countermeasure systems worldwide are undergoing several developments. For instance, in August 2021, the US Navy announced that it completed the first testing of its littoral combat ship-based unmanned mine detection system. Similarly, in July 2021, the Republic of Singapore Navy announced that the USV passed the testing and qualification process for the identification and neutralization of underwater mines for its naval operations. Such developments are catalyzing the military unmanned surface market growth globally.

The limited range of USVs and lack of control of signals & communication between USV and the controller when the USV goes beyond the line of sight or control can lead to collision with naval vessels on the field. Further, as per the current scenario of USV industry, the USVs are not suitable for ship-to-ship combat operations due to the high capabilities of manned naval vessels that can dominate the USVs. As a result, such restricting factors are leading to a lesser preference for USVs by armed forces for surface-to-surface combat operations.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 PANDEMIC

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on various industries, such as military, aerospace, and manufacturing, has been severe. The lockdowns imposed by governments of various countries hampered the global manufacturing sectors and supply chains and logistics owing to complete or partial delays in business operations across various countries. Further, the impacts of the pandemic led to loss of production volume and reduced revenue for several enterprises globally. The defense manufacturing sector experienced a temporary delay in operations; as a result, the production of military unmanned surface vehicles was impacted negatively.

The COVID-19 outbreak severely affected the shipping & marine industries as their businesses were shut down for safety to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which directly impacted the import and export of military USVs across the global market. However, the investments in the procurement of military USV technologies had not been impacted during the pandemic as these are allocated from the defense budget of the countries that have specific allocated amount for the defense sector. The manufacturers of USVs had faced a few major challenges in the procurement of components and raw materials as the entire supply chain industry was disrupted that has also led to delay in product deliveries and an extension of several contracts’ duration.
