Construction Robot Market by Type (Traditional, Robotic Arm, and Exoskeleton), Automation, Function, Application (Public Infrastructure, Commercial and Residential Buildings, Nuclear Dismantling and Demolition), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023
Enhanced productivity, quality, and safety due to the implementation of construction robots acts as a major driving factor for the construction robot market”
The construction robot market is expected to reach USD 166.4 million by 2023 from USD 76.6 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 16.8% between 2018 and 2023. This growth can be attributed to enhanced productivity, quality, and safety due to the implementation of construction robots and growing urbanization worldwide. However, high equipment cost restricts the growth of the construction robot market.
“Traditional robot held a larger share of the construction robot market in 2017”
Traditional robots accounted for the largest share of the overall construction robot market based on type in 2017. The technologically advanced traditional robots are being used as a replacement for the old construction equipment/machines in most of the construction functions. Also, the traditional robots are serving the similar function as served by heavy construction equipment in an innovative manner, which is leading to the large adoption of these robots by the construction industry.
“The construction robot market for concrete structural erection is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period”
The market for the concrete structural erection function is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The robots designed for the concrete structural erection construct prefabricated concrete components or units that can directly be assembled on site to form an entire building structure. Such automated building of concrete structure with the help of robots has reduced the complexity of the construction operations and is attracting most of the construction firms to adopt robots for this function.
“Public infrastructure held the largest share, in terms of value, of the construction robot market in 2017”
Public infrastructure accounted for the largest share of the construction robot market based on application in 2017. The growth of the market for this application can be attributed to the increasing urbanization worldwide and growing partnerships among construction firms for developing sustainable infrastructure solutions with an aim to improve people’s quality of life.
“Europe was the largest shareholder in 2017, whereas APAC would be the fastest-growing region in the construction robot market during the forecast period”
Europe accounted for a major share of the overall construction robot market in 2017. The largest size of the European construction robot market is attributed to the presence of large facilities of various companies for the development and production of the construction and demolition robots, increasing number of government regulations, and growing need for the residential and non-residential construction projects. The construction robot market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2018 and 2023. APAC has abundant natural reserves distributed among various countries. The mining and construction is among the top industries in Australia, China, India, Malaysia, and Vietnam. With the growing urbanization and wide availability of natural resources across the region, the mining and construction companies have started using automated equipment, operating software, and communications system to connect and operate on site.
