Nuclear Robotics market is a very engaging field by preferential use of robots in nuclear industry to clean up radioactive waste, highly toxic materials, swabbing, and pallet loading, nuclear commissioning and decommissioning. The frequency of Robots in use in nuclear industry is attributed to hazardous work environment in nuclear industry coupled with fear of life adding to growth in nuclear robotics market. A progression in process automation in nuclear robotics industry calls for investments of a large order that fulfills industry requirements. These comprise manufacture of responder robots and nuclear response robots, thus carrying forward the legion of rapid safe response robots. Segmentation of nuclear robotics industry by product type is stressing on factors of production, price, market share, and revenue and growth rate comprises measurements, inspections, radiochemical handling, nuclear decommissioning and others.
Segmentation of nuclear robotics market by application includes robot hardware, software and services. As of now, robots have not ousted human beings in handling of nuclear situations but lately robots are attracting enough mobility, size, sensors and tooling to promote growth of nuclear robotics market. Nuclear response robots have proved their mettle in the much awaited nuclear robotics market by the anticipated value of automatic process in dealing with radiation. Nuclear responder robots inhabit mobile automated process platforms and are governed by nuclear handling needs. Nuclear robots are intrinsically local and are have profound application in nuclear robotics industry in handling radioactive components.
Nuclear responder robots are gaining high traction by personnel in harmful surroundings. Nuclear responder robots are growing in stature as major aids in defense and nuclear markets to manage radioactive material. A new emerging market is in evidence for nuclear robotics industry by targeting size, mobility and sensors of robots in material handling devices. Distribution network have shifted stance with roll outs in portable device market implying growth in nuclear robotics market. As per industry news, much depends on small and medium size enterprises (SME’s) to add value to the nuclear robotics industry by facing challenges posted by the market to decommission sites; viz material handling and exposure to cutting-edge technology. Examples of SME’s in developing robotic aids in market are exhibited by robots in nuclear sites with particular mention attributed to OC Robotics having worked with two different SME’s to adapt snake-arm robot to decommissioning tasks.
