One of the engineering fields with the fastest current growth is robotics. Robots are made to perform risky or labour-intensive tasks without the involvement of humans, as well as in inhospitable environments. In-pipe inspection robots are proving to be important for enhancing safety and productivity in industrial facilities. Due to the cost of these particular operations—inspection, maintenance, cleaning, etc.—the use of robots seems to be one of the most alluring options. The essential mode of transferring fuel oils, gas, effluent water, and potable water are pipelines. It is conceivable for piping networks to develop a variety of issues due to ageing, corrosion, cracks, and mechanical problems. So, it is imperative to regularly check, maintain, and repair. In-pipe inspections robots (IPIR) operate inside pipelines and perform inspection work there. During the course of their operation, the pipelines experience abnormalities like corrosion, cracks, dents, misalignments, etc. that needs to be fixed. By using IPIR, the manual inspection process, which includes visual inspection and some external non-destructive testing, is made easier (NDTs). Recently, a lot of scientists have started researching robotic devices that can freely move inside pipes. In-pipe inspection robots can be categorised into a number of different sorts based on how they travel. In-pipe inspection robots use has become increasingly common recently in engineering industries like the nuclear power plant industry, sewage system, and petroleum industry, amongst others. These in-pipe inspection robots (IPIRs) are used to inspect flaws, cracks, and erosion caused by strain ageing, creep deformation, water erosion, etc. as they move along the pipeline inside while carrying a variety of sensors. Thus, these factors are propelling the global in-pipe inspection robots market.

Segmental Analysis: Global In-Pipe Inspection Robots Market

In-pipe robots can be divided into seven main sub groups based on their uses, with a long history of robotics development. They are segmented into inchworm robots, walking robots, caterpillar robots, wall-press robots, pig robots, and screw robots. In 2022, the pig type in- segment had the highest share in the global in-pipe inspection robots market whereas wheel type in-pipe inspection robots are anticipated to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period 2023 – 2031. During the latest 20 years, numerous in-pipe inspection robots (IPIRs) have been designed and fabricated based on several elementary forms according to the locomotion patterns. While the other forms of in-pipe inspection robots (IPIR) might not be suitable for special occasions, each type of IPIR is created to satisfy specific design requirements for a particular environment. Robots of the pipe inspection gauge (PIG) variety are frequently used for pipeline inspection. It was mostly used in the oil and gas industry. The fluid velocity and other techniques are used to regulate the robot’s movement. This type of device has one drawback in that it is made for and suitable for only one certain diameter. Thus to overcome this, wheel type robots are gaining huge popularity due to its structure. Thus in the upcoming years, the global in-pipe inspection robots market will experience huge growth due to the advancements in their structures.

Region Analysis: Global In-Pipe Inspection Robots Market

Europe region is projected to be the fastest growing region in the in-pipe inspection robots market during the forecast period. According to the French “Bureau d’Analyse des Risques et Pollutions Industriels” (BARPI), corrosion is the leading cause of industrial accidents, more than half of the corrosion-related accidents that have happened in France over the past few years have involved networks, particularly pipes and ducts. For instance, the SARP group, a Veolia subsidiary, has created the PREDIRE autonomous robot-drone, which can move over kilometres of pipes without first cleaning them. This robot can operate in pipes with a diameter of 200 to 300 mm, which accounts for 70% of France’s wastewater network. Thus with the advancements in the in-pipe robots the European market will experience huge growth in the upcoming years.
