Robotic Firefighters Market Dynamics
- Increasing number of causalities
Significant increase in fire causalities have resulted in many firefighters losing their lives. Therefore, firefighter robots are playing an important role in harsh and hazardous firefighting environments. Moreover, technological advancement is expected to help the robotic firefighters market to grow in the future.
- Enhanced suitability for the task
Robotic firefighters due to their mechanical design and remote/automated operations can be used in places or cases where human reachability is restricted. For instance, high rise buildings or narrow/low height passages, extreme temperature zones, and so on. This is one of the critical factor driving adoption of robotic firefighters.
- Interoperability, protocol translation, and data accuracy challenges to hinder the robotic firefighters market
Increasing use of advanced technology is making robotic firefighter more advanced. Additionally, they are equipped with advanced sensors and GPS systems. However, factors such as limited interoperability of equipment, pre-processing of data in critical situations, and accuracy of data may hinder the growth of the market.
