    Robotics market report transcript

    Global Market Outlook on Robotics

    • The global robotics market is seeing a considerable transformation, with robots evolving beyond the workforces of industrial shop floors and starting to take over the responsibilities of surgical assistants, personal assistants, autonomous vehicles, delivery vehicles, crewless aerial vehicles, and exoskeletons. 
    • Over the last couple of years, industrial robots were costly thus negatively affecting the ROI. However, at present, smaller collaborative robots (Cobots) are priced for enterprises to achieve ROI in months rather than decades, generally costing around $20,000. Rising adoption and decreasing sensor prices have further triggered reduced costs.
    • The global industrial robotics market was valued at $35 billion in 2015 and was expected to grow at a CAGR of 14% to reach about $68 billion by 2020.
    • Increased momentum in the global industrial robotics industry has been visible since 2015, with major markets characterized by a high level of automation.
    • In 2015, industrial robots registered record-breaking sales of around 254,000 units.
    • China, South Korea, Japan, the US, and Germany are the five major markets contributing about 75% of the global sales volume.
    • The global robotics market size was estimated at $15.8 billion in 2018. In 2019, the robotics market was estimated to be worth $62.75 billion. Per the industrial robotics market analysis report, it is forecasted to reach $33.8 billion by 2025. 
    • The report further reveals that the global robotics market size will expand by 13.5% CAGR from 2020 to 2027, reaching the $189.36 billion mark.
    • The industrial robotics market size is expected to grow by a CAGR of 11.5% during the forecast period.
    • Major global robotics service providers include Fanuc, Yaskawa, ABB, Kawasaki, Nachi, Denso, and Kuka.
    • Non-industrial applications such as healthcare will see rapid utilization of robotics, where robots have been a major component in minimally invasive surgeries. While non-industrial robots are gradually finding use in small surgeries such as gynecology or urology, they will be leveraged in complex medical procedures in the immediate future.
    • Rising expenses and labor scarcity is paving the way for non-industrial robotics in the agricultural sector. Robots are proving immensely useful in crop harvesting and picking vegetables and fruits without damaging them. Equipped with graphic processing units (GPU), robots can figure out the ripeness of the products. Besides, autonomous tractors or drones are utilized to monitor crops’ health.
