Autonomous Mobile Robot Market
The Autonomous Mobile Robot market is expected to register a CAGR of over 14% during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). The market consists of products, such as unmanned ground vehicle, humanoids, unmanned aerial vehicle, and various others. Additionally, it finds applications in end-user industries, such as oil and gas, defense and security, automotive, and various others. The scope of our study is geographically limited to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
An autonomous mobile robot is a machine that operates in a partially unknown and unpredictable environment. In contrast to robots used in manufacturing plants, where the situation is highly controlled, autonomous robots cannot always be programmed to execute predefined actions. The demand for these robots is increasing numerously, owing to their different operational behavior and patterns. Moreover, rising demand for mobile robots in major industries, such as medical science and healthcare, automotive, and oil & gas is expected to drive the autonomous mobile robot market. However, high capital requirements for the incorporation of these devices can challenge the growth of autonomous mobile robot market.
Growing Demand for Unmanned Ground Vehicle to Augment the Market Growth
Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) are primarily used in the defense sector to supply ammunition to soldiers during combat situations, carry out rescue operations during disasters, and detect and defuse or detonate explosives. Furthermore, the usage of UGV in the commercial sector is increasing as they can be used to perform tasks, such as perimeter security of dangerous areas, carrying out rescue operations during disasters, and handling hazardous materials. The growth of the UGV’s is also attributed to high demand in the Americas owing to the increasing terrorist threats and the ongoing war with ISIS. Growing usage of thermal imaging cameras to ensure the autonomous navigation of UGV is expected to further drive the autonomous mobile robot market. However, payload problems of batteries and the use of sensors to support applications, such as navigation and explosives detection inhibit the growth of the UGV’s over the forecast period. In addition, communication and connectivity issues are expected to hinder the growth of the UGV’s.
North America to Occupy the Largest Share in Autonomous Mobile Robot Market
The demand for mobile robots is continuously increasing in the region, owing to the factors, such as mounting internal and external security threats, owing to increased terrorist activities and growing usage of mobile robots for patrolling to spot intruders or enemy forces. Moreover, the presence of major mobile robots manufacturing companies, such as Applied Geo Technologies, macroUSA in the region is also favoring the adoption of mobile robots in the country. Apart from this, the US boasts of the highest military spending across the world. Moreover, the growing adoption of UAV, UMV in defense forces is expected to drive the autonomous mobile robot market.
