ROV technologies
The World ROV Report is geared to the needs of the senior executive and assumes no previous reader knowledge of the subject area. The study describes the development of the industry and gives many examples of the various types of ROVs and the technologies involved. Individual sections discuss the fundamental technologies of positioning and obstacle avoidance; main ROV components such as umbilical cables, tooling, survey sensors, cameras and manipulators.

unique market modelling
The Douglas-Westwood ROV modelling process is complex, identifying existing fleet numbers and forecasting growth through a number of industry conditions including deepwater & subsea expenditure and drillship & semi-submersible newbuild activity.

The World ROV Market Report 2008-2012 identifies 2007 operational expenditure in the global work-class market at just under $1.5 billion - a figure which is forecast to increase to a monumental $2.4 billion by the end of 2012. Increase in ROV demand is due to require over 650 new work-class units over the next five years - driven by the industry's increasing push into deepwater and the present high oil price.
