This article provides answers to a number of issues related to the prospect of a new type of vehicle, which is used a screw auger (screw-propelled vehicle). As the main purpose of the function is seen movement on the ice of the Arctic territories. The article assesses the potential market size of the vehicles. As potential target segments at the same time considered the company serves ice-resistant platform in the Arctic shelf. The functional purpose of the vehicles considered in three ways: rescue vehicles for drilling platforms in the Arctic shelf, the Okhotsk Sea and the Caspian Sea (the northern territories have similar to the Arctic ice conditions in winter); vehicles used to remove oil spills in ice conditions; research - research facilities in the Arctic. To estimate the potential market capacity of vehicles used an approach based on the method of chain indicator. Sources of information include: the investment projects of companies engaged in the development and exploitation of the Arctic offshore, infrastructure projects of laying oil and gas pipelines in remote areas with wetlands; the development strategy of the Arctic territories of the subjects of the Russian Federation, given the authorities' statistics, data consulting agencies, reports the Arctic marine geological expedition.

Investment projects analyzed in this study are distributed by geographic area: Russian part of the Arctic shelf of the Barents Sea (excluding the Pechora Sea); Pechora Sea (coastal sea in the south-eastern part of the Barents Sea between the islands of Vaigach and Kolguev); Karf Sea; Laptev Sea and East Siberian Sea; Okhotsk Sea; the northern part of the Caspian Sea (this area during the winter characterized by the formation of ice and the broken ice).
