Global TelepresenceRobot Market-Forecast & Analysis, 2016 -2022
Telepresence robots are defined as autonomous, remotely monitored robots with a smartphone and/or motorized desktop stands equipped with a monitor and a camera. The former type (autonomous/remotely operated robots) falls under the category of motile robots while the later one (motorized desktop robots) are considered as stationary robots. Over and beyond the forecasted period (2016-2022), it is expected that motile robots will be high on demand compared to stationary robots because of more flexibility, convenience and benefit of using them for multi-purpose end-use applications over a single use-robot.
The telepresence robot industry is surging forward rapidly, mainly on account of increasing demand for teleconferences, remote management of workforces, proliferating demand for consumer and personal telepresence robots in healthcare, education, retail and hospitality sectors, among others. At the same time, low-cost telepresence robots are being introduced for specific end-use applications. Smartphones/tablets are becoming more affordable and trends like BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) are further giving push for affordable video collaboration technologies.

The answers to the following key questions can be found in the report by its readers:
Telepresence robotics is an emerging technology which is expected to become a multi-million dollar industry over the forecasted period (2016-2022). The global demand for telepresence robots is expected to reach $136.90 Million by 2022. The key drivers for this market include high demand from enterprises, healthcare, education, hospitality, and consumer and personal use applications. With continued decrease in price of robots and affordable related technologies such as smart phone/tablets, the demand is expected to remain high over the projected period. The industry is also witnessing major research and development programs happening across the world in the field of advanced and autonomous telepresence robots which are expected to gain popularity in the coming years, owing to their multi-purpose utility over a single use robot.
Though the global telepresence robot industry is at nascent stage, it has high growth potential in the near future and is expected to grow rapidly over the forecasted period (2016-2022). The major growth opportunities are likely to concentrate in regions including Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, South Korea, and India), and Europe (France, the U.K, and Germany). South America, Middle East and Africa are also expected to show positive demand for telepresence robots. The key opportunity will lie in developing cost effective, flexible and multi-purpose autonomous robots (self driven) which can work real time based on gesture-based commands. Other growth sectors are education, healthcare, hospitality and retail, among others.
Global teleprsence robot market has been categorized into two important individual markets: stationary telepresence robot and motile telepresence robot. Motile robots are further classified as remotely operated robots and autonomous (self driven) robots. The major end-user for stationary robots has been mostly small offices, businesses and classrooms with one–to-one remote video conferencing requirements. The key applications which are expected to dominate the global telepresence robot market include enterprise, education and healthcare, among others. Enterprise is one of the prime applications which is expected to remain the focus area of major telepresence robot manufacturers. The use of telepresence robots in offices, businesses and manufacturing facilities is expected to remain high.
Education is another key application where growth is expected to happen over the forecasted period (2016-2022). Leading telepresence robot manufacturers are developing low–cost products for remote classroom education and various universities are also using them to deliver global educational programs. Healthcare is one of the major applications which is expected to have maximum growth rate from 2015-2022. The growing healthcare issues across the world and limited availability of medical attendants is driving the market for robots in telemedicine (healthcare) applications. Another application includes hospitality and retail which are anticipated to show a promising growth over the forecasted period (2016-2022).
In 2015, North America was the leading user among all the geographies across the world of telepresence robots followed by Asia Pacific, Europe and ROW. The major market for telepresence robots in North America geography is constituted by the United States (the U.S.) followed by a small share of Canada. The major market for in Asia-Pacific geography is constituted by Japan and China followed by South Korea. India is also a growing market in the region. It is expected that by 2022, Asia-Pacific will become the biggest market for telepresence robot industry with China becoming the major player in Asia-Pacific. In Europe, France was the leading user of telepresence robot in the region followed by United Kingdom (the U.K) and Germany.
