Global Cloud Robotics Market: Snapshot
The emergence of cloud connected robots and their expanding applications are expected to drive the global cloud robotics market. Cloud connectivity offers increased data storage, collective learning solutions, and increased brain power. Increase in the uptake of cloud robotics is thus on cards subsequent to advancements in the cloud technology. In addition, the surging demand for automation across manufacturing, automotive, defense and logistics, agriculture, and healthcare sectors will push deployment of cloud robotics.
Transparency Market Research (TMR) has prophesized the market to expand at an impressive 32.4% CAGR between 2016 and 2024. The global cloud robotics market was valued at US$1.38 bn in 2015. Considering its pace of gain, the market is forecast to reach US$21.94 bn by the end of 2024.
Demand for Advanced Technologies to Aid Expansion of Software Segment
On the basis of component, the global cloud robotics market is segmented into hardware, software and services. In 2015, the hardware segment contributed nearly 74% to the overall revenue generated in the global cloud robotics market. In the forthcoming years, hardware and software segments alike will exhibit robust opportunities. The rising demand for advanced technologies such as robotics as a service (Raas) and platform as a service (PaaS) will help the software segment gain momentum in the near future.
By connectivity technology, the market can be segmented into WI-Fi, 3G, 4G, 5G, RF and Infrared. Of these, the 3G segment was helmed as the market leader in 2015. However, the technology has become standard as more number of companies are launching competitive products. Threat of rapidly losing share thus looms on the 3G connectivity technology segment. As per TMR, in the near future, the demand for 5G technology will pace higher. Likewise, in terms of application, the market will witness demand rising at a higher rate in the personal service segment despite the dominance of the industrial cloud robotics in 2015.
Asia Pacific to Emerge as Most Lucrative Regional Market
Regionally, North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa constitute the key segments in the global cloud robotics market. While North America emerged as the dominant market in 2015, Asia Pacific will show the highest CAGR during the forecast period. TMR forecasts, the Asia Pacific cloud robotics market to rise at a CAGR of 33.9% between 2016 and 2024. During this time, China and Japan will demonstrate the most lucrative opportunities in the market.
The cloud robotics market is still at a nascent stage, which explains the concentration of leading also because they are the early technology adopters. Emerging nations will soon catch up on account of the increasing demand for advanced technologies witnessed in the region. Over the course of the report’s forecast period the market is thus expected to witness lucrative opportunities in Asia Pacific especially in countries such as India and China. Besides this, the market is forecast to gain traction across emerging markets in South America and the Middle East and Africa.
