Emergence of Cloud-connected Robots to Spearhead Market Growth

In a recent phenomenon there has been an emergence of cloud-connected robots with an expansion of their applications and it is foreseen to stimulate growth of the market. Cloud connectivity comes with better data storage capacity, improved and augmented brain power, and collective learning solutions. As such, there is a clear probability of increased adoption of cloud robotics owing to the prevailing technological advancement in the field of cloud technology.

Soaring requirement for automation across various industries are estimated to stimulate the market for cloud robotics. There has been an ongoing and increasing requirement for improved efficiency in many different industrial processes which, as a result, is driving the demand for automation. Such increasing drive for automation is expected to bolster demand for cloud robotics. These cloud robots make use of software, electrical and mechanical systems for better speed, precision, and accuracy and as such, installations of such robots is expected to rise immensely.

However, there exists fear of data theft and vulnerability associated with it. The security threats that are associated with this market could restrain growth of the market. Personal data and critical information of many clients are stored in cloud robotics. The constant threat of hacking would therefore put these data at risk.

Nevertheless, with the emergence of 5G technology, cloud robotics platform is expected to be faster, safer and speedier. 5G technology is expected to make its reach wider.

North America to Lead Whist Asia Pacific to Offer an Extremely Promising Market

As we take geographical classifications into consideration, the world market for cloud robotics has been classified into Middle East and Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and North America.

In this market, North America is prognosticated to emerge as a clear leader and the region is forecasted to retain its regional supremacy over forecast timeframe. It is predicted to account for the lion’s share whilst Asia Pacific is predicted to expand at a very high CAGR rate. Countries like Japan and China are analyzed to offer extremely lucrative market for cloud robotics in the region.

The market for cloud robotics is still very much at a initial stage and thus its concentration in the leading economies are understandable. Nevertheless, it is to offer immense opportunities in the developing   economies in the forthcoming years.
