Growing Demand For Robots In The Healthcare Sector

Digital gadgets such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and e-readers have become an essential part of everyday life. Most occupations necessitate working on computers for extended periods of time. In addition, the need of staying connected has increased with the rise of social networking sites. A worrying trend has been seen where people turn on their cell phones as soon as they get up and continue their trust with digital screens until they go to bed. In addition, the rising use of digital screens has given rise to a disorder called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), which harms the eyes and causes issues with vision.

Market Restraining Factors

Restricted Range And Shelf Life Of Sensors

While sensors are employed in a variety of applications, their restricted bandwidth and range prevent them from collecting data from far-off or remote places. Given that robotic sensor installations depend on electrical resources, it is essential to make sure that sensors can continue to function even when there is little power. Furthermore, depending on the sort of application they are used for, such sensors typically get a shelf life of six months to a year. This short shelf life creates the need for changing these sensors within a fixed interval of time, which is restricting many companies to use them in their products.

Type Outlook

Based on type, the robotic sensors market is segmented into Proximity Sensor, Vision Sensor, Position Sensor, Temperature Sensor, Force (Torque) Sensor and Others. The proximity sensor segment procured a significant revenue share in the robotic sensors market in 2021. It is owing to the low cost attached to these sensors. This widespread application in the detection of items working in the area of the sensor is also expected to support growth. Multiple sensors are required for various proximity sensor targets.

Indication Outlook

On the basis of indication, the Robotic Sensors Market is fragmented into myopia, presbyopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism. In 2021, the astigmatism segment covered a significant revenue share in the orthokeratology market. The vision may become distorted or fuzzy if someone has astigmatism, a common condition of the eyes. It occurs when the cornea the transparent outer layer of the eye or lens the inner portion of the eye that aids in eye focus have an abnormal shape. The demand for ortho-k lenses is rising in this segment as spherical ortho-k lenses are available which have the ability to reshape the anterior surface of the cornea.

Vertical Outlook

On the basis of vertical, the robotic sensors market is classified into Logistics, Aerospace and Defense, Manufacturing, Healthcare and Others. The manufacturing segment recorded the maximum revenue share in the robotic sensors market in 2021. It is due to the high acceptance of automation in manufacturing units. Throughout this industry, sensor-based collaborative & humanoid robots are employed for a variety of tasks like packaging, picking, rolling, and others.
