Based on deployment mode, the data center robotics market is categorized into on-premises and cloud. The on-premises segment was valued at over USD 4.5 billion in 2022. The segment is anticipated to grow owing to the need for real-time, localized automation and management of data center operations. On-premises solutions offer control and customization, which makes them ideal for data center operators.
For instance, in November 2022, Comau, an industrial automation specialist, integrated Rockwell Automation components and Comau robotic equipment using an existing Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for controlling the automation logic and the robotic application. This eliminates the need for additional robot programming skills related to using added programming languages required by other robotic systems. The segment growth is driven by the rising complexities and security requirements within data centers. On-premises robotics provide operators with the ability to optimize tasks, such as equipment maintenance, security monitoring, and energy management, ensuring data center efficiency, reliability, and compliance with on-site needs.
