Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Autonomous Mobile Robots Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global autonomous mobile robots market: General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Mobile Industrial Robots, Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), SMP Robotics, Aethon, Swisslog, and Clearpath Robotics.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: The Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz, WM Robots, Kongsberg Maritime, and Airware.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is incorporation of ultra-wide band (UWB) technology. Industrial robots are made to work on the shop floor with no human intervention. This saves time and energy of manual labor, which could be utilized in other tasks.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is requirement of mini mobile robots. The development of industries such as medical science and healthcare, food and beverages, automotive, oil and gas, shipbuilding, aircraft manufacturing, semiconductor industries, and other manufacturing units have generated the demand for autonomous mobile robots. The demand for these robots has been pulled up in the recent years because of their different behavior and patterns.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high implementation cost. The manufacturing cost of autonomous mobile robots is very high. The integration of the latest technology and components in robots such as high-resolution camera, software, global positioning system (GPS), and light metals for the body structure adds to the overall price of robots. These robots are sophisticated because of the applications they are used in and the environment they are operated in.
