Commercial Robots Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2019-2029

Commercial robots provide superior service to traditional techniques, probably increasing investment and usage. Drones are gaining popularity and being used in various contexts, including the commercial sector. Additionally, numerous startups and tech behemoths are investing in this technology to quickly increase their market share.

The market's primary growth driver, the ongoing transition from manual to automated operations, has increased the need for commercial robots. The smooth operation of industrial workflows depends on coordinating management, production, and control. Therefore, commercial robots have grown increasingly important since they simplify processes and increase the accuracy and efficiency of workflow.

The need for these robots is being driven by the expansion of small businesses, increased investment in automation, and stringent governmental regulations on handling hazardous materials and products. Similar to how they assist in the customization of machines and the production of autos, industrial robots carry heavy payloads. In addition, the advent of smart factories increases the market's potential.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 has significantly influenced many businesses, including the automotive industry, resulting in a precipitous decrease in automotive sales. Due to the extensive usage of commercial robots in the automobile industry, there was a decline in the demand for commercial robots. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic compelled several enterprises in the market for commercial robotics to temporarily cease operations to comply with new government rules to control the disease's spread. This suspension of activities immediately impacted the market's revenue flow.

Market Growth Factors

Growing use of multimodal robot systems in agriculture

Ground and aerial vehicles must be coordinated to complete their respective missions. Large-scale farm automation will profit substantially from the control of several robots via a centralized software platform. Due to the ability of multimodal robotic devices to operate swarms of robots in farms to simultaneously perform various agricultural applications, like spraying and weeding, it is anticipated that market participants will adopt these types of systems in large numbers over the forecast period. Investments in multimodal systems are anticipated to expand the revenue streams of market participants in the commercial robots market.

High ROI on cobots resulting in grown utilization

In comparison to conventional robots, cobots offer a significant return on investment. In addition to the prospective rise of robot adoption in many countries, their substantial return on investment is appealing to small and medium-sized enterprises. Also, the expense associated with installing collaborative robot-additional hardware exceeds the cost of this type of robot. In contrast, the cost of deploying regular industrial robot-additional hardware exceeds the cost of the robot itself. As a result, the increased interest in cobots is anticipated to contribute to expanding the market for commercial robots.

Market Restraining Factors

Data privacy concerns and strict regulations

The lack of technology standardization further affects system integration, as the bulk of equipment manufacturers employ proprietary interface protocols for communications. In many instances, creating extra gateways is required for the translation & transfer of data between equipment from various manufacturers. An increasing number of businesses that provide agricultural software are attempting to acquire farmer data. Software vendors sell data to third parties or employ it in a manner that does not help farmers. These security concerns associated with agricultural drones may hamper their adoption. This would further slowdown the market growth in the upcoming years.

Application Outlook

Based on application, the commercial robots market is segmented into medical & healthcare, defense & security, agriculture & forestry, marine and others. The medical & healthcare segment dominated the commercial robots market with the maximum revenue share in 2022. Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that uses robotic technology to carry out surgical procedures. The surgical procedures may be carried out precisely due to these robotic systems, which are controlled by surgeons and comprise miniature surgical instruments mounted on robotic arms.

Type Outlook

By type, the commercial robots market is bifurcated into field robots, medical robots, autonomous guided robotics, drones, and others. The medical robots segment garnered a significant revenue share in the commercial robots market in 2022. The growing elderly population, who have decreased bone densities and frequently sustain fractures in accidents, is anticipated to increase demand for medical robots. Robotics represents the next wave of change, with automation becoming essential to pharmaceutical production, upholding higher precision standards, and reducing workload.
