Companies Overcome Lack of Mobility with Innovative Rigs for Better Underwater Visibility

The underwater camera market is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~9% during the forecast period. Rise of marine life tourism and emergence of new broadcasting channels are contributing toward the growth of the market. However, companies are limited by lack of mobility and depleting battery life of underwater cameras, owing to cold temperatures in deep depths of water. Hence, biologists are tying up with small-scale companies that are capable of providing adequate camera and light set up. Hence, companies should partner with idea-driven startups to construct rigs from galvanized stainless steel that solve the issue of mobility underwater.

There is a growing demand for underwater cameras that facilitate underwater observation without getting wet. Hence, manufacturers in the underwater camera market are increasing their efficacy in technologies that improve the interpretation of sonar for sea anglers. For instance, Aqua-Vu-a provider of innovative underwater devices, has introduced the Aqua-Vu technology, which helps in the discovery of fish hidden in the vegetative state.

Long-term Monitoring of Biodiversity Levels and Deep-sea Hydrothermal Vents Generate Incremental Opportunities

Visual observations of ocean environments have been made possible with advanced underwater cameras. As such, these cameras are playing a pivotal role in scientific purposes as well as in observing unseen behavior of fish and invertebrates. This is evident since the underwater camera market is estimated to reach a production output of ~13,000 units by the end of 2027. Hence, manufacturers are increasing their production capacities to develop cameras that help in long-term monitoring of biodiversity levels in ocean environments. Hence, commercial application segment is expected to lead the underwater camera market during the forecast period. Stakeholders in the underwater camera market are increasing their research spending to develop cameras that adapt to changing ocean conditions.
