Global Surveillance Robots Market 2017-2021

Global Surveillance Robots Market 2017-2021

About Surveillance Robots

Surveillance robots are used to assist human guards in the defense and civil sectors. While human guards find it challenging to cover large territories and in assessing dangerous areas, surveillance robots, in the form of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), and unmanned marine vehicles (UMVs), are increasingly being adopted. Surveillance robots are able to capture images and videos and save them for a minimum of two weeks.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global surveillance robots market to grow at a CAGR of 12.31% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Surveillance Robots Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global surveillance robots market: ATLAS ELEKTRONIK, EOS Innovation, Endeavor Robotics, Northrop Grumman, and SMP Robotics.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aibotix, AirRobot, Frontline Robotics, Gama2Robotics, GeckoSystems, Guangzhou Walkera Technology, HANGZHOU HIKROBOT TECHNOLOGY, Hoyarobot, Knightscope, MoviRobotics, OC Robotics, Omnitech Robotics, Proytecsa, Robosoft, Roboteam, RoboteX, Robotnik, Rotundus, Rtb-group, taurob, TECDRON, Technobots, Transcend Robotics, Vecna Technologies, and WM Robots.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is emergence of hybrid UMV systems. The forecast period will also see the emergence of more hybrid UMV systems. Researchers are conducting research on control systems that can enable more autonomy and the ability to switch seamlessly between various communication bandwidths and degrees of automation, depending on the requirement.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is miniaturization of sensors. A major factor that has had an impact on the growth of the global surveillance robots market is the miniaturization of sensors, which has led to a reduction in the cost of sensors and in turn of surveillance robots. Surveillance robots are mainly equipped with GPS, inertial, biomimetic, LiDAR, and ultrasound-based range sensors. With improvements in functionalities and features, surveillance robots are increasingly being equipped with thermal, hyperspectral, and multispectral sensors as well.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost of deployment. As surveillance robots involve the use of sensors, software, and advanced technologies, they require a large initial one-time payment. Their average price can lie in the range of $25,000 - $200,000. The high cost of deploying them will be a major impediment to the growth of the global surveillance robots market. Also, significant costs are incurred in the modification of infrastructure and facilities. These costs appreciate contingent on factors such as customization and operational requirements, which vary as per the intended use of the platform.
