This industry research report identifies Carlson Software, GENEQ, Leica Geosystems, Topcon, and Trimble as the key vendors in the global robotic total stations market. This industry research report also presents a comprehensive analysis of the market by application (surveying, engineering and construction, and excavation), by type (0.5''-2'' and 2''-5'' accuracy), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global robotic total stations market

Technavio’s market research study identifies benefits such as the reduced operational and labor costs as one of the primary factors for the growth of the robotic total stations market. Construction and surveying activities demand the need for field workers for carrying out multiple operations. IN addition to reducing the speed, the use of manually operated equipment total stations also minimizes the precision of applications. Additionally, traditional operations also involve a number of workers, which results in increased costs. This will induce contractors to use robotic total stations that can be operated by a single person and adjusted from remote locations. Additionally, these stations also allow the operator to precisely determine measurements. Such advantages will drive the need for robotic total stations, subsequently fueling market growth. Our market research analysts estimate that this market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 6% by 2021.

Robotic total stations are advantageous in terms of ease of use and seamless data collection with high precision when compared to the traditional total stations. Stations equipped with multi-track prism technology enable the accurate identification of eight prisms, that proves integral on large construction sites. The implementation of this technology will result in reduced operational time and increase the operational efficiency. Such benefits will increase the implementation of multi-track prism technology, which according to our analysis will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the robotic total stations market.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

With the presence of few established vendors, the robotic total stations market appears to be consolidated. The market consolidation is estimated to reduce by the end of the forecast period. Robotic solution vendors are offering similar manual and robotic total stations with advanced components and technology. To attain a competitive advantage among the competitors and to increase their market shares, vendors in this total station market are focusing on developing innovative and advanced solutions.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Carlson Software
  • Leica Geosystems
  • Topcon
  • Trimble

The other prominent vendors in the market are Beijing Bofei Instrument, Hilti, and geo-FENNEL.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the robotic total stations market

Robotic total stations are primarily used in surveying applications that are critical and demand high precision. These total stations are easy to install, reliable, fast, and self-sufficient in adjustments. Additionally, they are also autonomous and can function efficiently without any operator to monitor the adjustments.

Segmentation by type and analysis of the robotic total stations market

  • 0.5''-2'' accuracy
  • 2''-5'' accuracy

The 0.5''-2'' accuracy segment will account for the major shares of the robotic total station market throughout the next four years. Robotic total stations provide angular accuracy and measure distance parameters with high precision. This will enable contractors to determine horizontal and vertical angles and carry out operations without error since they are automatic.
