Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Hazardous Environment Waste Handling Robots Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global hazardous environment waste handling robots market: Brokk, KUKA, OC Robotics, and PaR Systems.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Next generation robots. There is an increase in focus by vendors to improve manipulation, navigation, cognition, and perception of hazardous environment waste handling robots. Many R&D activities in the robotics technology have taken place across these applications. Advances in technology, such as gripping, mechatronics, drives, and motion control, increased the development of robots for applications such as waste loading, waste separation, building demolition, tunneling, mining processes, and transportation. These robots were the first generation of robotics technology.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Safety of personnel. The hazardous environment can cause a threat to humans, ranging from bruises to choking. Nuclear plants, chemical manufacturing industries such as pesticide manufacturing plants, and petrochemical plants release toxic components as waste material that cannot be separated by humans, due to the involvement of hazards. Vendors are making more advanced robots that are inert to the hazardous fumes and radioactive gases and can work efficiently and effectively as compared with humans. Many waste management facilities in Australia, China, and many other countries are increasingly deploying these robots in waste segregation processes to eliminate human interventions.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High initial cost Initial installation of hazardous environment waste handling robots includes investments in fixtures, tooling, and environmental systems. It also includes costs such as preventive maintenance, safety, operator training, and the use of complementary peripheral equipment. This is a major challenge that restricts the vendors to invest in the deployment of robots in the waste handling industry. Considering the high initial investment, many industries still depend on manual working.
