Security robots are devices with locomotive capabilities, which can collect data for security purposes, and in some cases, act upon this data, if required. The information is obtained through an array of different sensors, such as ultrasonic or infrared devices, cameras, radars, and thermal sensors. Security robots have various applications in firefighting, explosive detection, rescue operations, patrolling & surveillance, and others. The security robots market is growing rapidly with the introduction of new technologies related to security. Countries are focusing on making their militaries stronger and eliminating any serious casualty, which, in turn, leads to an increase in the demand for equipment efficient in removing threats to life.
Security robots are used for target recognition, damage assessment, and electronic warfare. Additionally, the rising demand for and adoption of smart security and surveillance appliances has increased in the recent years. The rise in the implementation of unmanned system solutions by military and defense forces and a surge in geopolitical issues across the globe are the drivers of the security robots market. The rise in defense expenditure and adoption of autonomous systems for security robots are the opportunities of this market. However, lack of regulatory framework and cybersecurity threats are the restraints to the market growth. The global security robots market comprises many global and regional players.
