Global Mobile Robotics Market: Snapshot
With the escalating need for industrial mobile robots to enhance workplace efficiency, the global market for mobile robotics is registering a significant progress in its size and valuation. These mobile robots have the ability to move inside the factories without modifying the factory layout and they can also re-plan their routes autonomously to avoid obstacles, which make them highly effective in the factory setup. Owing to these factors, companies are prompted to deploy mobile robots in their plants, which is reflecting greatly on the sales of mobile robotics.
Over the coming years, the significant increase in labor costs, aging workforce, and the rising demand for productivity are expected to drive the growth of the global market for mobile robotics remarkably. However, the high initial investment may limit the uptake of these robots, which may impact the overall market negatively in the near future.
In 2016, the total opportunity in the global mobile robotics market was US$8.58 bn. Analysts expect it to report a substantial rise at a CAGR of 15.60% between 2017 and 2025, reaching US$30.96 bn by the end of 2025.
