Sewer Inspection Camera Systems Market By Camera Type (Push Camera, Lateral Launch Camera and Crawler Camera), By End-user (Municipal, Commercial and Others (Industries, Military & Defense, etc.)) - Growth, Future Prospects, and Competitive Landscape, 2018 - 2026

Sewer inspection camera systems are simple cameras attached to an extended arm or pipe capable of traveling into the tightest places. Sewer inspection camera systems can be a vital tool in locating plumbing and sewer lines, drainage stoppages or blocking issues, and the materials of pipes and sewer system connections. The systems help to curb unnecessary plumbing repairs, so a significant reduction in cost can be achieved. Although the systems are not fully effective in detecting leakages, they are still used to detect leak locations and to rust in cast iron pipes to prevent leakages. All these factors, along with the prime factor of safety, have urged Municipal Corporations and other commercial organizations associated with the inspection of sewers to incorporate sewer inspection camera systems. This has certainly stimulated the overall sewer inspection camera systems market, and the growth is expected to continue throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Market Synopsis

Push Camera System with User Convenience and Low Cost to Become Market Leader

Sewer inspection camera systems are classified into push-type, lateral-launch, and crawler cameras according to the camera types. These cameras are launched into the sewer tunnels and pipelines, and the cameras project the internal view to the receiving end of the systems. At present, push-type camera systems are the most preferred among different variants. These cameras are convenient to use and relatively cost-effective compared to lateral launch and crawler versions. Although push camera systems lack versatility and operating range, they are still the best bet for small distances and relatively less complex sewer system designs. Crawler cameras are making significant gains in terms of market share and are expected to be the fastest-growing camera systems for sewer inspection in the coming years.

The High Cost of Breakdown Maintenance Drives Commercial End-Users to Install Sewer Inspection Camera Systems

The end-user segment comprises government, public, commercial, residential, and industrial infrastructure that uses sewer inspection camera systems on a considerable scale. However, the research study broadly classified the segment into municipal, commercial, and other end-users. Other segments include residential, industrial, and military & defense, among others. At present, the commercial segment registers the majority of market value and is expected to remain a global leader in the coming years. The common commercial infrastructure has a complex and distributed sewer network. Breakdown maintenance of the system is a tedious and expensive task, and hence commercial end-users often incorporate sewer inspection camera systems to prevent such breakdown repairs.

North America is making a name for itself through the rapid adoption of sewer inspection camera systems.

North America has always been the aggressor in accepting new technologies and innovations for complex and hazardous work. Sewer inspection camera systems were no exception to the trend, and consequently, the region registered the majority of its market share in terms of value. Inspection and maintenance of age-old infrastructure and the complex network of sewer systems in cities and counties compelled local municipal corporations to procure camera inspection systems. Besides North America, Europe is also narrowing the market value gap and catching up with the pace of North America in incorporating sewer inspection camera systems. Asia Pacific certainly holds major market potential and is projected to be the future leader of the market owing to its vast infrastructure and consistently growing cities.
