Robotics Market Trends




  • Growing Prevalence of service robots to boost market growth




The increasing number of investments and funding in the technology sector is one of the main reasons for boosting the growth of the robotics industry. According to the World Robotics report by the International Federation of Robotics, investments in new vehicle production technologies and the modernization of industrial regions have increased the demand for robots. Additionally, the worldwide market is expanding due to the spike in demand for industrial robots. For instance, BMW AG and KUKA inked a contract in 2020 to deliver over 5,000 robots to new production lines and factories worldwide. According to KUKA, these industrial robots will be used globally at the overseas manufacturing facilities of the BMW Group to produce both current and future vehicle models.


Robotics innovators and developers attend these exhibits to secure money for R&D from investors and industry executives. For instance, Bossa Nova Robotics, a maker of shelf-scanning robots, has secured about $40 million from investors to create cutting-edge technologies that would aid in the efficient operation and commercialization of shelf-scanning robots. Additionally, the market is expanding quickly; thus, many new start-ups are joining. Other innovators are employing similar tactics as well. Such initiatives are anticipated to enhance the robotics market during the projected period.


The market's product innovation rate is further accelerated by the rising number of surgeries supported by medical robot systems. In August 2022, the Da Vinci Xi Surgical Robot, one of India's most cutting-edge technology, was introduced at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Mohali. The introduction of the ground-breaking Da Vinci Xi Surgical Robot is just another patient-focused move made by healthcare providers to give patients access to high-quality medical care, enhancing the robotics market CAGR across the globe in recent years.


Domestic work robots made up the largest group of consumer robots, according to IFR 2022. Recently, sales of about 19 million copies (+12%) occurred. Currently, the most common uses for robots are vacuuming and other interior home floor cleaning. Since every convenience shop carries this service robot, customers may reach it. These advancements may further fuel future market expansion. In addition, in January 2022, ANSCER Robotics, a Bengaluru-based start-up that developed the world's first autonomous mobile robot (AMR) "brain" to democratize robotics technology for everyone, debuted its line of AMRs for the first time at the India Warehousing Show (IWS), which was held at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, another factor driving the growth of the robotics market revenue.


Robotics Market Segment Insights:


Robotics Type Insights


The robotics market segmentation, based on type, includes SCARA, cartesian, articulated, cylindrical, parallel, and others. The articulated segment held the majority share in 2021 of the robotics market revenue because articulated joint robots can conduct circular motion, which is more advantageous than other motions. A robot with rotating joints is an articulated robot (e.g., a legged robot or an industrial robot). Simple two-jointed constructions of systems with ten or more interacting joints and materials are all examples of articulating robots. Many other sources, including electric motors, are used to power them.


Robotics Mobility Insights


The robotics market segmentation, based on mobility, includes fixed robots and mobile robots. The mobile robots segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period 2022-2030. An automated machine with the ability to move about is called a mobile robot. The fields of robotics and information engineering are typically considered to include mobile robotics as a subject. Mobile robots are not confined to a single physical area and can move around in their surroundings. Mobile robots are capable of being "autonomous" (AMR, autonomous mobile robot), which means they can move around freely without any mechanical or electrical guiding systems, positively impacting the market growth.

Robotics End-Users Insights


The robotics market data has been bifurcated by end-users into medical, entertainment, field, logistics, defense, public safety, manufacturing, and others. The manufacturing segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period 2022-2030. Robots are employed in manufacturing to do repetitive activities, streamlining the workflow of the entire assembly process. Robots and humans work together to produce products. Numerous tasks are hazardous or involve large amounts of materials, which can be risky for human employees. From 2010 to 2019, the annual installation of industrial robots increased exponentially. Due to great production, constant speed & quality, enhanced workplace safety, and better floor space utilization, industrial robot installation reached up to 381 thousand units globally.


Robotics Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific market accounted for USD 18.22 billion in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR growth during the study period. Due to the widespread deployment of robotics, the Asia-Pacific region is predicted to have a sizable market share.
