Over the past few decades, there has been substantial growth in the adoption of technologies such as IoT, Machine Learning (ML), advanced robots, and artificial intelligence, among others, facilitating the growth of industrialization across the globe. Thus, to achieve the increasing demand, enterprises are adopting robotic fuelling system to enhance the efficiency in manufacturing at the same time reducing operating costs to gain maximum benefits. Additionally, the surge in robotics demand, primarily in the automotive sector, paved the way for the adoption of robotic refueling systems. For instance, according to Statista, in 2019, 24% manufacturing sector adopted advanced robots to improve manufacturing efficiency.
The gasoline segment holds a higher CAGR and is anticipated to witness growth during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to growing investment in the mining industry, which enables to adopt of autonomous haulage trucks where gasoline is a major fuel. For instance, in July 2020, BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BHA) announced to invest approximately USD 69 million in autonomous haul trucks at Daunia coal mine (Australia). Moreover, the gasoline segment’s other benefits include fewer emissions of exhaust gases, and the presence of an abundant amount of energy over other gases.
Payload carrying capacity with 100-150 kg holds a dominant position and is presumed to grow during the forecast period. Industrial verticals such as aerospace, military and defense, mining and warehouse, and logistics, among others, are inclining toward automation, thereby increasing the demand for heavy load fuel carrying capacity on account of its high-end applications. Furthermore, the growing demand for electric vehicles and cost-effective refueling stations is also one of the factors boosting the market growth. For instance, in September 2019, Volkswagen Group announced to invest USD 250 million in autonomous charging stations, which is to be commercialized by the end of 2021.
The mining Industry holds a higher CAGR and is expected to witness growth during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to increasing investment in the mining industry across the globe. Moreover, favorable FDI policies in commercial mining are also bringing in lucrative opportunities for the robotics refueling market. For instance, in September 2019, Saudi Arabia’s biggest oil exporter Aramco has announced to invest approximately USD 100 billion in India in the mining sector. This has subsequently increased the adoption of autonomous haulage trucks, thereby leading to a surge in robotics refueling market. Furthermore, the growing demand for energy across the globe on account of the surge in globalization is also one of the factors escalating market growth.
COVID-19 critically impacted almost all industry verticals globally. The market of the robotic refueling system witnessed slight declination due to the shortage of skilled laborers and disruption in supply chain and manufacturing operations across the globe. Moreover, the market of robotic refueling is likely to come back on track post-pandemic on account of the several measures taken to eliminate the transfer of bacteria, which prompt consumers to adopt a robotic fuelling system. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of autonomous vehicles would also impact the adoption rate of robotic fuelling systems in the near future.
