Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Robotic Refueling System Market

  • Rapid globalization and industrialization are driving the global robotic refueling system market. Use of technologies, such as automation, IoT, machine learning, and advanced robotics, are expected to fuel the growth of the global robotics refueling systems market.
  • Requirement for low cost operations and improved security and safety while fuel dispensation are also propelling the growth of the global robotics refueling system market. Robotic fueling systems help avoid human contact with potentially dangerous fumes, drivers’ exposure to extreme hot or cold temperatures during fueling, and lowers the labor cost associated with full service fueling.
  • Legal and safety regulations, and manually-operated fuel caps of existing cars are expected to restrain the growth of the global robotics refueling system market     

Global Robotic Refueling System Market: Segmentation

  • The global robotic refueling system market can be segmented based on fuel pumped, payload-carrying capacity, and end user
  • In terms of fuel pumped, the global robotic refueling system market can be segmented into gasoline, natural gas, diesel, ATF, and others (hydrogen fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries, methanol, biofuel, and biodiesels). The gasoline segment is expected to dominate the global market during forecast period, as the demand for gasoline vehicles is high from developing and underdeveloped countries. The others segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the rise in demand for zero emission vehicles due to environmental awareness.
  • Based on payload-carrying capacity, the global robotic refueling system market can be divided into up to 50 kg, 50 kg – 100 kg, and 100 kg – 150 kg. The up to 50 kg segment is expected to grow with rise in demand for electric/hybrid vehicles, as these vehicles require robotic refueling systems with a payload-carrying capacity of up to 50 kg.
  • On the basis of end-user, the global robotic refueling system market can be classified into mining, automobile, oil & gas, aerospace, marine & shipping, military & defense, and others. The mining & shipping segment is expected to dominate the global market, as there is a growing demand for low-cost operations, along with the need for improved security and safety while fuel dispensation in the mining industry.

Global Robotic Refueling System Market: Regional Segmentation

  • Based on region, the global robotic refueling system market can be classified into: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Europe dominated the global market robotic refueling system market in 2018 and is expected to account for the largest share of the robotic refueling system market during the forecast period. This is majorly due to growing investments to upgrade and develop advanced fuel stations as well as increase in number autonomous vehicles. Furthermore, Europe has the presence of highest number of robotic refueling system manufacturers.
  • The global robotic refueling system market in North America is expected to grow at a  high CAGR during the forecast period due to rise in demand for robotic refueling systems in the U.S. and Canada
