The robotics industry is on the brink of a revolution. For over 50 years the most commercially successful robots have been articulated robot arms used primarily in the automotive industry to manufacture cars. The biggest shift over the next ten years will be massive growth in mobile robots.
This new breed of robots will transport us, deliver our goods, spray and harvest our crops, monitor our streets, fight our enemies and mine minerals not only on the planet surface but from the bottom of the ocean and potentially even from asteroids in space. Smaller but still substantial developments will include the proliferation of traditional industrial robots into countries currently manufacturing using human labour and also the evolution of industrial robots from dangerous machines that must be fenced off for safety to collaborative robots able to sit alongside human workers and contribute safely thanks to developments in sensors, microcontrollers, machine vision and artificial intelligence.
These existing and emerging robotics market sectors amount to a $25bn market today and will grow to $123bn by 2026.
