Crawler camera systems are witnessing increase in the demand due to the rising demand from municipal as well as residential applications. When used for pipeline inspection, crawler camera systems provide information on the condition of pipe defects, separated pipe joints, leaks, blockages, and other obstacles that are difficult to detect physically by humans. Furthermore, crawler camera systems can reach inaccessible areas such as large offsets, restricted pipes, protruding pipe tapes, flood drains, and interiors of water sewers. Increasing demand for remote-operated inspection systems is expected to drive the global crawler camera system market during the forecast period. In order to raise the safety level and minimize the number of errors during remote-operated inspections, various municipal corporations are adopting crawler camera systems. This is projected to propel the global crawler camera system market in the next few years. Moreover, crawler camera systems are being adopted largely in end-user applications such as oil refineries, oil pipeline transmissions, gas distribution networks, pharmaceutical, food & beverages, and land field recycling. On the other hand, high prices of crawler camera systems and lack of skilled force are major factors expected to hinder the global crawler camera system market during the forecast period.  

The global crawler camera system market is consolidated in nature, with a limited number of companies operating at the global level. Leading players are currently focusing on providing technologically advanced products to their customers. Increasing demand for crawler camera system-based inspections is expected to prompt investors to invest in this new technology in the near future. In 2018, North America hold a major share of the global crawler camera system market and it is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period.
