Abstract

Over the past few years, the use of robots in the construction sector has gained in popularity. In this study, the implications of robot adoption on the Indian construction industry's productivity, costs, speed, quality, health and safety, employment, environment, economy, and GDP are examined. The study shows that the use of robots in construction has an influence on a variety of industrial elements, both positively and negatively. Benefits include a move toward sustainable practices, greater project quality, faster project completion, and improved worker safety. However, the possible drawbacks include lost employment, particularly for inexperienced labor, as well as erratic impacts on project cost and energy usage. In addition to raising the level of investment in the sector and encouraging the use of sustainable practices, the use of robots in construction has also raised the cost of research and development in the field. Nevertheless, the influence of robot implementation on India’s GDP and overall economic growth continues to be nuanced and complex. The report suggests that robotics be implemented gradually over time in phases and that contractors consider the advantages and disadvantages of deploying robots in view of their high capital expenses. Overall, the use of robots in the construction sector brings both opportunities and challenges, and their adoption must be carefully assessed to ensure that the advantages exceed the drawbacks.
