Robotics in Utilities-Thematic Research
Many existing robotics applications have historically been very industry-specific. The majority of robots continue to be deployed in manufacturing, and many of the newer robotics developments focus on certain sectors like healthcare or defense, with limited applicability to other sectors. Nevertheless, utilities have recently been going through a period of disruption that is pushing the industry out of its century-old comfort zone, and forcing it to seek innovative solutions to the many problems facing it.
Utilities are increasingly turning to digital technologies to try and deal with the challenges of an increasingly decentralized infrastructure, regulatory pressure, and uncertainty around future business models and demand patterns. Robotics certainly fit into this wider narrative.
In the utilities industry, robots and drones are increasingly being explored as a way of improving the inspection of dangerous and hard to reach assets, as well as maintaining those assets. Robotics is also important in the nuclear industry, enabling the safe handling of radioactive waste, for example.
Whatever you think of robotics, a revolution is occurring around them. Software and processing technology, sensors, commercial drones, autonomous vehicles, and developments around collaborative robots (co-bots) are all driving robotics capabilities to new heights and driving uptake of millions of consumer, entertainment, and service and industrial robots. The report "Robotics in Utilities-Thematic Research", offers a framework in which to look at robotics, summarizes the important trends, and identifies the key players.The report also helps in identifying winners and losers based on technology leadership, market position and other factors.
