  • This first ever made unique and independent, 180+ page report of Renewable Market Watch™ analyzes global market for drones (UAVs) and robotics application in utility grid inspection regarding market dynamics, technology characteristics, industry structure, innovations and key industry vendors. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, Renewable Market Watch™ has identified a series of market trends that will impact this market over the coming decade.

    Over the next decade, power networks in emerging countries will expand rapidly to serve growing populations, while developed economies will upgrade their infrastructure to manage with demand discontinuities and the transition to smart grids. The key reasons behind increasing transmission line lengths include a rising electrification ratio, the need for new electricity infrastructure and power generation capacity growth. The global electric power transmission networks with more than 5.66 million Circuit kilometers (Ckm) total lengths are subject to physical wear out and need regular inspections throughout their lifespan.

    Since power outages cause substantial financial losses to the producers, distributors and also to the consumers of electric power, it is in the common interest to minimize failures on power lines. Therefore the inspection of electric transmission networks is of great importance for the power industry. It is an expensive and difficult task not only because power lines cover a vast territory, but also because a significant portion of them are located in remote and hazardous environments. Furthermore, for safety reasons, human intervention should be reduced as much as possible. UAVs and robotics offer an attractive cost and time saving option compared to conventional approaches to management of utility gird infrastructure.
