DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Service
Robotics Market – Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019-2024)”
report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s
The global service robotics market is valued at USD 11.48 billion in
2018 and is expected to reach USD 50.90 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of
25.34% over the forecast period of 2019-2024.
Service robots, considered in this segment, include personal service
robots for domestic, research, and entertainment applications.
Professional service robots are used in defense and security, for
medical assistance, and UAV drones.
Some of the major examples of service robots are – iRobot’s Roomba, a
personal robot, Amazon Robotics’s Kiva, a logistics/warehouse robot,
and Intuitive Surgical’s DaVinci, a medical robot.
Factors, like aging population and shortages of healthcare workers,
are driving the demand for assistive technology robots. Companies,
like KUKA (healthcare subsidiary Swisslog), are specializing in robots
for healthcare applications. For instance, Swisslog’s Relay is
designed for inpatient and outpatient services, like transporting
medicines, and in other hazardous medications, including chemotherapy.
Fully automated solutions act as a driver for the service robot market
which provides a huge opportunity for various applications. For
instance, at the warehouse MiR’s warehouse robot, MiR 500, a flexible-
easy-to-program robot equipped with a laser-scanning technology.
Service robots, across military and defense sectors, are gaining
popularity for new applications like bomb disposal.
The major restraint for the service robotics market would be, it needs
very skilled hands to operate. It requires a very deep understanding
of programming, which helps in programming the robots.
Key Market Trends
Professional Use of Robots to Account for a Crucial Share in the Market
Professional robots consist of field robots, defense and security
robots, medical assisting robots (MAR), UAV drones, public assistant
robots, electrical industry robots, and robots for construction
The construction industry has adopted service robots to overcome
challenges like heavy labor cost, labor shortage, and labor accidents.
It also helps in constructing more reliable buildings since there is
less chance of human errors. Technologies like, 3D printing robots and
demolition robots are further acts as a catalyst in the adoption of
robots in the construction sector.
Exoskeleton robots are used as public relation robots. Most public
relation robots are used to assist customers in finding an item or
completing a task. These robots are being deployed in the retail
sector, to guide customers around a store, as well as in the
hospitality industry, in banks, shopping malls, family entertainment
centers, and more.
The medical and healthcare industry uses services robots as diagnostic
systems, robot-assisted surgery or therapy, rehabilitation systems,
and other medical robots.
Asia-Pacific to Register Significant Growth Rate Over the Forecast Period
Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest growing regions across the world.
It also holds the largest market over the forecast period, owing to
the significant adoption of service robots in China, Japan, and India,
Regional governments are also a major factor for the development of a
regional robotics market. For instance, India plans to invest in
military robotics, and the country is preparing for deploying advanced
robotic soldier by 2023. Also, a New Delhi-based company is building
robots for the Indian Army.
The Chinese government has ambitious plans for the country’s robotics
industry. The government has listed the robotics industry, along with
AI and automation, as one of the priority sectors for high-end
development, to push forward the transformation and up gradation of
the manufacturing industry. This push is expected to raise the global
market share of Chinese-made robots.
Further, financial services companies in Asia are looking to
streamline costs to boost dividends to shareholders, maintain
profitability, and have a new tool at their disposal that also appeals
to customers, e.g. service robots. For instance, HDFC, one of the
largest Indian private banks, is looking to unveil a service robot,
which will assist customers with everyday tasks, like transferring or
withdrawing money or just finding the relevant department to get their
task done. The robot is expected to be a part of the bank’s Project AI
The service robotics market is being dominated by major players,
including Honda Motor Co. Ltd, Northrop Grumman Corporation, iRobot
Corporation, Daifuku Co. Ltd, SZ DJI Technology Co. Ltd, Intuitive
Surgical Inc., and others. This market is consolidated.
