Robots automate the process of storing and moving goods as they make their way through the supply chain in Logistics. Improving worker productivity and accuracy by using robotics in warehouse and storage facilities are the major factors for the growth of the logistics segment in the estimated period.
Logistic companies have started using robotics to improve their supply chain process. For instance, Companies such as Quiet Logistics use adaptive robots, which autonomously drive to an item’s location, showing their human coworkers what and where to pick. Quiet Logistics can increase picker accuracy and improve worker productivity by 5-8 times. Adaptive robots from I Am Robotics navigate warehouse aisles and help scale distribution centers, lower overhead costs, and reduce order fulfillment times by identifying and procuring products requested.
By application, the global adaptive robotics market is segmented into industrial robots, consumer Robots, Service Robots, logistics Robots, and swarm Robots. The global service robots market size was worth USD XX billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Service robotics is expected to hold a major market share in the forecast period. Service robots are engineered to assist humans and perform useful tasks on their behalf. For instance, Honda's Asimo robot is an autonomous, humanoid robot that could help the elderly by getting them food or turning off lights.
Demand for service robots in defense, healthcare, and agriculture drives service robot growth due to the high labor costs, scarcity of skilled workers, and increasing awareness of service applications. For instance, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital uses adaptive robotics to provide remote access to medicine and reduce patient transfer rates. InTouch Health’s RP-Vita, the hospital uses an adaptive patient-care robot that combines the latest autonomous navigation and mobility technology with telemedicine technology. Furthermore, Service robots in manufacturing facilities use adaptive robots for a wide range of tasks, such as welding and painting. These adaptive robots are programmed to accomplish one task repeatedly.
The global adaptive robotics market is classified into sensors, control systems, actuators, control systems, etc.
By sales channel, the global adaptive robotics market is divided into distribution channel and direct channel.
The global adaptive robotics market is segmented into five major regions, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa region.
The North American adaptive robotics market size was worth USD XX billion in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2026, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. North America is dominating the global adaptive robotics market in 2018 and is estimated to hold the largest market size over the forecast period. The market share for adaptive robots was highest in North America and grew due to the high demand for personal assistance robots & collaborative industrial robots and huge investments. For instance, Canadian marine robotics firm Kraken Robotics acquired a majority share in Rostock, Germany-based Kraken Power, for USD 110,000.
The government in this region is focusing on robot gripper technology in combination with adaptive robotics. For instance, The U.S. Department of Defense solicits proposals to establish an Institute focused on robotics in manufacturing environments. The federal government would provide USD 80 million over 5 years, which would be matched with at least USD 80 million from non-federal funding sources. Furthermore, Leverage over USD 160 million in funding to establish an institute focused on advanced industrial robotics as part of the “Manufacturing USA” National Network for Manufacturing Innovation.
