Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for Industrial Robotics to Augment the Market Growth

  • With the development of cloud computing, big data, and other emerging technologies, the integration of cloud technology and robotic systems allows for the design of multi-robot systems, with high performance and high complexity. Growing penetration of the IoT and investments in robotics have been the major contributors to the growth of industrial robotics.
  • Industrial robotics have been witnessing a huge demand over the past decade, owing to the adoption of the smart factory systems. With the development of industrial robots, programmed robots have reached high levels of performance in real-time applications, accuracy, robustness, and compatibility.
  • The availability of small-capacity and cost-effective solutions from small-and medium-sized industries is influencing the adoption of industrial automation. Apart from this, connecting robots, machines, and automation equipment to the cloud allow manufacturers to unlock the highest levels of performance and uptime from their automation systems.
Cloud Robotics Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific to Witness a Significant Growth

  • The market in Asia-Pacific is driven by the growing penetration of cloud computing, coupled with the incorporation of robotics and automation, among the end-users. The automation adoption rate in this region, especially in China, India, and Japan, is the highest in the world.
  • China is the biggest spender on public cloud in the Asia-Pacific region. The local IaaS market is the first choice for small- and medium-enterprises for IT resources construction in the fields of games, video, and mobile internet.
  • The growing demand for advanced automotive manufacturing is also driving robotics partnerships between the United States and Chinese companies. This may help China in getting advancement in cloud services, which is likely to further develop the Asia-Pacific cloud robotics market.
  • Furthermore, ASORO labs of Singapore built a cloud computing infrastructure to generate a 3D model of the environment. This allows robots to perform simultaneous localization and mapping, and the process is much faster than the labs’ computers.
