According to a recent Emergen Research study, the global Mobile Robot Market will be worth USD 117.89 billion by 2027. This market’s expansion can be attributed to the increasing use of mobile robots in manufacturing plants. Over the forecast period, the adoption of intelligent technologies such as artificial intelligence, deep learning, and mobile robotics drives the growth of the mobile robot market. The growing demand for automation and self-optimization of factory machinery to achieve increased productivity and operational efficiency is expected to drive mobile robotics market growth. Manufacturing plants are increasingly implementing autonomous mobile robots to ensure worker safety, reduce human resources, and operational and manufacturing costs, and eliminate human errors.
The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the mobile robotics market begins with collecting revenue data from the market’s key vendors through secondary research. This study makes extensive use of secondary sources, directories, and databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg Businessweek, Factiva, and OneSource to identify and collect information useful for the market’s technical, market-oriented, and commercial study. Vendor offerings were also taken into account when segmenting the mobile robotics market. The study of annual and financial reports of top players, presentations, press releases, journals, paid databases, trade directories, regulatory bodies, and safety standard organizations comprise the entire research methodology.
Following the estimation processes described above, the overall market size was divided into several segments and subsegments. Data triangulation and mobile robotics market breakdown procedures have been used wherever applicable to complete the overall mobile robotics market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics of each market segment and subsegment. The data was triangulated by researching various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides in domestic; entertainment, education, and personal; logistics; medical; and military applications.
