Key Market Trends
Drones in Military and Defense to Offer Huge Opportunity for Commercial Robotics Market
- Military robot automation of the defense process is the next wave of military evolution. As automated systems and networking complement the Internet, communication is facilitated on a global basis. Over the past decade, there have been increasing levels of investment in surveillance and security in the defense sector.
- From 2017, the US military and its partners started expanding their use of drones, turning them for logistical purposes, like resupply while expanding their abilities to defend against enemy drones.
- The UAVs and drones are increasingly being adopted in the defense & military sector worldwide owing to their benefits, such as enemy tracking, use in war zones in reconnaissance of unknown areas or buildings, and force protection and to assist in searches for lost or injured soldiers, as well as a real-time view of various missions.
- Thus, with the increase in defense spending globally and advancements in technology, military and defense account for a significant share in the commercial robotics market.
North America to Dominate the Market
- The North American region is set to lead the market for commercial robotics due to the widespread acceptance of the infrastructure required for the adoption of commercial robotic systems.
- The steady technological advancement of the healthcare sector in North America is a major driver for the commercial robotics market in the region. The U.S being home to some of the largest players in the market and being a pioneer in the adoption of surgical robots is one of the primary factors that has influenced the growth during the past decade.
- The defence & security sector also accounts for a significant portion of the demand for robotics in the region, as developed countries in these regions have focused on military modernization in the recent past. However, the airborne drones have seen a phenomenal increase in their application because of its heavy usage in security and surveillance.
- In 2016, the Pentagon, the Department of Defence in the U.S. had deployed drones to spy over U.S. territory for non-military missions over the past decade. These factors have increased the demand for security robots in North America.
The commercial robotics market is highly fragmented due to spending on commercial robots is rapidly increasing owing to superior benefits. The increasing investments, especially in the medical robotics coupled with technological innovations and product launches by the industry players are expected to drive the commercial robotics market. Some of the key players in the market are Northrop Grumman Corp., Yaskawa Electric Corporation, Kuka AG, iRobot Corporation, Honda Motor Company Limited, Omron Adept Technologies Inc., and 3D Robotics Inc., amongst others.
- April 2019 - Japanese technology group Yaskawa has officially opened its new robot production facility with European robotics development centre at Kocevje/Slovenia. The robots to be manufactured in Kocevje will for the main part of the current Motoman GP series with a payload of 7 to 225 kg.
- March 2018 - Midea Group had set up three Joint Ventures with Kuka Group, to expand business in industrial robots, healthcare, and warehouse automation. Midea and KUKA will each share a stake of 50% in the joint venture companies.
