Global Infrastructure Inspection Robots Market: Introduction
Robotics systems are mobile service robots designed to suit resilient infrastructure through increased infrastructure operational life cycle & productivity, reduction of operator risk & costs, improved quality of data collection, and minimization of environmental impact. Furthermore, infrastructure inspection robots, typically used for the inspection of high-value and critical infrastructure. Infrastructure inspection robots are either fully autonomous, able to navigate themselves or semi-autonomous to work on established paths. Inspections need in infrastructure is more accurate when performed by infrastructure inspection robots as they can be operated without halts for long periods of time. Also, infrastructure inspection robots provide more comprehensive inspections than manual processes, especially in a hazardous and dangerous environment.
Moreover, infrastructure inspection robots offer many paybacks over manual inspection, especially in complex scenarios. As the need for inspection of large infrastructure increases, demand for infrastructure inspection robots will rise accordingly. Infrastructure inspection robots have already proven valuable in protecting the integrity of critical infrastructure. Subsequently, the study aims to analyze the most recent trends, dynamics, and potential strategies in the global infrastructure inspection robots market.
Global Infrastructure Inspection Robots Market: Dynamics
The primary factor driving growth of infrastructure inspection robots is the need for inspection of massive, high-value infrastructure structures in oil & gas and petrochemical industry. Increasingly, advancing capabilities of infrastructure inspection robots and companies’ ability to quickly amass return on investment (ROI), are also attributing to the growth of infrastructure inspection robots. Civil infrastructure is progressively deteriorating, due to ageing, environmental factors, damages caused by natural/human factors, increased loading, and inadequate or poor maintenance. Appropriate operations of periodic inspection and maintenance are needed to ensure that the designed life of service of civil infrastructure can be extended or achieved. Subsequently, supplementing manual labor in infrastructure inspection; there is a significant opportunity for the development of infrastructure inspection robots.
Moreover, the inclusion of autonomy in the infrastructure inspection robots has a wide range of advantages over piloted ones. The underpinning technological challenges for infrastructure inspection robots include perceive & patch, repair & perch, plunge & protect, fire and forget, dismantle, dispose, construct, and confirm.
