Firefighting Robots Market By Locomotion (Tracked Firefighting Robots, Wheeled Firefighting Robots, Humanoid Firefighting Robots) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

Published: Jan 2018 | Report Code: 58939-01-18

Firefighting robots refer to the unmanned ground vehicles remotely controlled by a human operator in order to mitigate and extinguish fires. The main task of these robots is to minimize the exposure of human firefighters to dangerous and hostile conditions. Besides fire extinguishing application, firefighting robots are also used for numerous other purposes such as fire detection, fire suppression, searching and rescuing of trapped people and to evaluate geographical conditions of the area. Equipped with a number of advanced sensors and GPS systems, firefighting robots are capable of identifying the cause and origin of fire in order to assist first responders by keeping them away from the line of danger. Based on the working environment and conditions, a variety of locomotive techniques such as tracked robots, wheeled robots and legged robots are used for different firefighting applications. These robots can either carry water in an on-board tank or can carry the fire hose to spray water on the fire. Some firefighting robots are also equipped with fans and blowers in order to ward off smoke generated during the fire accident for better visibility and to avoid suffocation.

Leading robotics developer companies have been engaged in design and development of advanced firefighting solutions with a higher degree of safety features and functionality. With the introduction of advanced electromechanical sensor technology, firefighting robots are all set to become an essential component of modern day firefighting systems. Continuous developments have been made to make the firefighting robots capable of tackling critical fire accidents in places such as warehouses, tunnels, other infrastructures and wildfires. The aforementioned utilities of firefighting robots have also encouraged public safety and civil defense organizations across various countries to deploy firefighting robots in their firefighting troops. In addition, numerous governments across the world have been heavily investing in robotic companies for the development of advanced firefighting robots. Therefore, factors such as the utility of firefighting robots, continuous advancement in the field of robotics and encouragement by government agencies are expected to boost the demand for the firefighting robots during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.

The global firefighting robots market is segmented, based on the locomotion of robots, into following categories:

  • Tracked Firefighting Robots
  • Wheeled Firefighting Robots
  • Humanoid Firefighting Robots

Firefighting Robots Market

In 2016, tracked firefighting robots dominated the overall firefighting robots worldwide. Tracked firefighting robots use the locomotion technique similar to combat military tanks and are ideally suited for locomotion in rough and uneven terrain. These robots provide superior traction thus reducing slippage and better maneuverability irrespective of the surface. Tracked robots are capable of climbing stairs and offer better stability with onboard water carriage and other firefighting systems. Owing to the merits offered, tracked robots are preferred over wheeled robots and the demand is expected to grow further in the following years.

Wheeled firefighting robots followed the tracked firefighting robots segment in terms of market value in the overall firefighting robots market in 2016. Wheeled robots offer better steering control over tracked robots and humanoids thus providing better speed control. The construction of wheeled robots is simple and requires less material. Thereby, manufacturing and maintenance cost of such robots is relatively less compared to tracked robots. Wheeled firefighting robots are generally used to carry fire hose to the fire instead of carrying water onboard. However, inefficiency on uneven terrain has restricted the growth of wheeled firefighting robots.

The global firefighting robots market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Asia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • The Middle East and Africa
    • Latin America

Firefighting Robots Market

As of 2016, North America dominated the overall firefighting robots market in terms of market value. Countries in North America especially the U.S. has been investing heavily in development of multifunctional firefighter robots. In 2015, the U.S. Navy in association with Virginia University developed a firefighter humanoid named Shipboard Autonomous Firefighting Robot (SAFFiR). In addition, competition is being conducted at universities across the country for introducing innovation and development in the field of firefighting robots. Similarly, Canada also demonstrated a significant contribution in the overall firefighting robots market. Presence of several research and development centers and robotics manufacturers has further strengthened the market growth in this region.

In terms of growth, Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period in terms of market value. In past, Asia Pacific has witnessed many catastrophic fire accidents with a number casualties and loss of property. This has significantly boosted the demand for firefighting robots in emerging economies such as China and India, among others. In addition, the presence of major robotic companies is further expected to drive the adoption of firefighting robots in the region. Thereby, the overall Asia Pacific market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.
