Global In-Pipe Inspection Robots Market is Expected to Grow Rapidly, to Reach USD 2,450 million by the end of 2026

30-Apr-2018 | Zion Market Research

The global in-pipe inspection robots market was valued at around USD 605 million in the year 2017 and is expected to reach over USD 2,450 million by the end of 2026 growing at a CAGR of more than 16.5% between 2018 and 2026.

Pipeline networks are majorly used for transporting oil and gas, drinkable water, effluent water, etc. In the U.S., the length of the pipeline is around 2,225,032 km. Out of which, 1,984,321 km is a gas pipeline and 240,711 km is oil pipeline. Moreover, the petrochemical industry is also increasingly adopting pipeline transport. As the demand for oil and gas is increasing across the globe, it is expected that the pipeline network will increase in length in the near future. This increasing demand for the pipeline networks anticipates increasing the demand for the in-pipe inspection robots. The in-pipe inspection robots are used for operations such as cleaning, maintenance, and inspection of the pipeline networks in order to eliminate human interference. Manual inspection of the pipelines requires a lot of manpower which incurs additional cost for the companies. Usage of in-pipe inspection robots, though expensive, works with accuracy and generates positive cash flow over a period of time. This is likely to boost the use of in-pipe inspection robots market over the forecast period.
