Micro Tactical Ground Robot Market size will grow rapidly in the coming years impelled by their increasing implementation in military and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) operations. It is a lightweight tactical vehicle, which can be used outdoor and indoor in any terrain specifically designed for the defense industry. These robots offer operational benefits such as explosive material search and maneuver in complex operations of the air force, supporting high demand. The large & bulky conventional machines used for EOD activities are being replaced by these systems owing to their efficient sensing and monitoring capabilities. In addition, these systems can prove to be the most useful in inevitable situations of natural calamities floods such as earthquakes. Such emergencies also derive the demand for the micro tactical ground robot market. The application of these systems in HAZMAT (Hazardous material) and CBRNE (Chemical-Biological-Radiological-Nuclear) segment due to increase in mining and exploration of oil globally has also increased the demand in the market.
The major factor fueling the micro tactical ground robot market is the growing adoption of automation in the defense & military sector to prevent the loss of human lives. Technical upgrades and incorporation of extended capabilities in these robots are driving the market. The automation technology adds new & advanced capabilities to these robots owing to size minimization, usage of newer sensors, and powerful computing procedures. These robots are being integrated with features including video cameras, sensor tool kit, GPS, mechanical interface, illumination mode, max payload, communication secured IP (Internet Protocol) data linked, etc., depending on the application used. Advancements in AI have further contributed to the micro tactical ground robot market growth by imparting intellectual abilities & natural intelligence features.
However, the high maintenance cost of these robots hinders the growth of the micro tactical ground robot market. The robots are highly susceptible to electronic and digital issues occurring due to unpredictable breakdowns. These robotic systems require highly skilled technicians to monitor & repair technical issues, further increasing maintenance costs. These machines are very costly owing to the digital and electronic features that can cater to high-end military requirements. Also, the micro tactical ground market has not grown up to its true potential in the underdeveloped and countries facing economic crisis.
Increasing concerns regarding national security and threatening acts of terrorism globally are propelling governments to invest in technologically-advanced and innovative surveillance systems. This has ensured a rise in defense budgets of several countries, contributing significantly to the growth of the market.
The teleoperated models in the micro tactical ground robot market have witnessed a high demand due to the provision of a wireless operating medium using the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies. These products can be easily operated, have a small size, and are cost-effective having utilitarian designs & minimal footprints. The autonomous segment in the market is expected to grow at a steady pace owing to automation benefits they provide in performing complex and high-end operations. Additionally, the increasing popularity of automated products due to better performance & less human intervention is supporting the usage in basic and complex military activities. The implementation of these machines in minor operational activities will allow military officials to perform other competent tasks manually, creating high product demand.
Companies in the micro tactical ground robot market are Perrone Robotics, Roboteam, ReconRobotics Inc, iRobot Corp., Clearpath Robotics, QinetiQ, Northrop Grumman, Boeing Co., Robotnik Automation, and Thales S.A. Partnerships and collaborations in the arket have been extensively witnessed. For instance, Perrone Robotics Inc. works on software design, autonomous vehicles, driverless cars, and robotic solutions. The company is focusing on developing these robots by collaborating with machine learning research pioneers for deep learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence). Similarly, Roboteam in the micro tactical ground robot market supplies these systems to different US government departments such as FBI, US Marines, US border patrol, US navy, US Army, and US department of homeland security. The company develops grounded robots, which are tactical human handled and human driven. The company also provides robots to other countries including Thailand, Army of Liber, Italian Army, Swiss MOD, Singapore MOD, UK MOD, Canada SOF for defense.
Asia Pacific is growing in the micro tactical ground robot market owing to the implementation of these machines in huge amounts to be used in military operations. Asian countries including China and India are focused on continuously advancing their military facilities and infrastructure due to several war threats from neighboring countries. Initiatives by these governments along with high military & defense investments are creating a high product demand. Israel is a major manufacturer of these robots designed for harsh-field operations and involves touchscreen operators with powerful features. The U.S. is developing rapidly in the market owing to the increased focus of the federal government on the military and defense automation. The advancement of robotics technology and increasing government focus on providing better military infrastructure over rival countries
