Key Findings of Study

  • Development of Renewable Energy Boosting Market Size – Rise in concerns about carbon footprint owing to burning fossil fuels is leading to the development of renewable energy. Governments of several countries are investing substantially in the development of wind energy that entail construction of new wind power plants.

    Wind turbines are central to wind power plants that require regular monitoring for optimal output. Adoption of wind turbine inspection drones has transformed the inspection landscape, which was previously carried out by human personnel. They offer key advantages of safer, faster, and more economical ways to inspect wind turbines, thereby fueling market demand.

    This is anticipated to boost the wind turbine inspection drones market in the next few years.
  • Technological Advancements – Next-gen drones are equipped with sensors and cameras that offer higher resolution images. These sensors collect more accurate and detailed inspection data, which is then scrutinized to discover potential challenges and to chart maintenance schedules.

    Advancements in battery technology is strengthening the scope of deployment of wind turbine inspection drones. This is because of their longer hover time, which reduces the need for regular battery charging or replacements, and provides more time for studying and analyzing wind turbines.

    Next-gen inspection drones are increasingly using AI and ML algorithms for analysis. These algorithms help drones to learn from previous inspections and discover patterns that may help predict future problems. This translates into tangible advantages of reduced maintenance costs, to boost market growth in the future.
  • Rise in Demand for Blade Inspection – Based on application, the blade inspection segment is anticipated to dominate the market in the next few years. Blade inspection is a key task of overall wind turbines maintenance, as damaged blades can affect output and can even cause serious damage to the wind tower.

    Wind turbine blades are subject to damage due to weather conditions, such as wind, rain, lightning and snow. Traditional blade inspection techniques involve technicians climbing the tower and inspecting the blades, which can be time-intensive and expensive. On the other hand, drones can make blade inspection much easier and affordable.

    Next-gen drones that are equipped with high resolution cameras and sensors can take close-up pictures of the blades to identify any damage or issues. This is followed by use of software to analyze the information and investigate the damage level in order to chart a repair plan
