Non-Medical Biomimetic Robots Market Drivers, Restraint & Future Growth by 2026
Global Non-Medical Biomimetic Robots Market: Overview
Biomimetic designs aim to convert biological principles into engineered systems by replacing more conventional engineering solutions to achieve a natural system function. The industrialization and extraction of resources have had a heavy impact on nature, but biomimetics can help to prevent this pattern. The use of natural properties as a basis for innovation for new products goes beyond biomimetics. These products can play a role in the industry as a whole, as well as provide human comfort in biology, architecture, chemical engineering, medicine and biomedical engineering.
More recently, biomimetic is suggested in many areas such as navigational systems, signal amplifiers and data converters. This is where the non-medical biomimetic robots market comes into play.
Global Non-Medical Biomimetic Robots Market: Notable Developments
Some of notable developments that are likely to impact the global non-medical biomimetic robots market are:
- MIT Launched Mini Cheetah Robot
The newly launched robot can carry out a number of sporting maneuvers, including stretching, running and jumping. The flattering, quadrupled man can travel uneven territory up to 5 miles per hour and recover with a swing of his legs from the punching, kicking and falling. The Mini Cheetah is just 9 kilograms wider, and was designed to be modular in contrast to the larger, more expensive predecessor of the Cheetah 3.
- Stanford University Designs Robotic Glove Mimicking Human Skin
Electronic skin means flexible, stretchable and self-healing electronics, which can imitate human and animal skin functionalities. University of Stanford recently designed a human hand’s sensing glove. A flexible hand attached to the Schunk WSG 50 gripper on a KUKA IIWA robot arm was used to provide actuation. The handle is placed over a mock-up. In a feedback loop, algorithms used the sensed readings to direct the hand-wearing robotic to touch a beer or to lift and move a ping-pong ball as a human hand would.
- Efficient PowerCone Developed by Biome Renewables
A new turbine retrofit device designed to optimize wind power generation is being introduced by Biome Renewables. The PowerCone connects to the hub of the turbine and rotates together with the rotor. The unique biomimetic design of the PowerCone can passively channel the wind onto the turbine pads without any movements to help them catch more blowing wind.
Prominent players operating in the global non-medical biomimetic robots market are Festo Group, AeroVironment, Inc. Boston Dynamics, and Agility Robotics.
Global Non-Medical Biomimetic Robots Market: Growth Dynamics
Non-medical biomimetic robots, such as oil and gas or water treatment, are expected to be used increasingly for maintaining pipelines across diverse industries. The inaccessible and narrow industrial pipes can be vertical with cross-connections. The defence not only uses biomimetic non-medical robots for supervision, but also for logistics to help soldiers carrying weapons of heavy war. This saves a lot of energy, and improves efficiency, boosting the market for non-medical biomimetic robots in the coming years.
In the non-medical biomimetic robots market, the use of soft robotics has been a growing trend. The challenges in robotics also promote new waves of research and development, foster innovation, commercial investments and lower costs for advanced technologies, fuelling the global non-medical biomimetic robots market.
Global Non-Medical Biomimetic Robots Market: Regional Outlook
North America and Europe are expected to account substantial share in the global non-medical biomimetic robots market. In addition, the development of Biomimetics in countries such as the USA, the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Canada was fuelled by stringent environmental policy aimed at protecting the environment. In future, however, the future markets are expected to be other regions, such as Middle East, Latin America and South East Asia.
