Robot manufacturers are witnessing a surge in the market demand as increasing number of companies are adopting industry 4.0 technologies and automation in their production lines. Technology providers are collaborating with market players to offer robot manufacturers with enterprise-grade automation solutions such as navigation, mapping, risk, and obstacle avoidance.

The introduction of robotics technologies is projected to revolutionize the last-mile delivery systems and create new market opportunities for existing and new leaders in the delivery & service market. Several hotels, airports, and educational & research centers are deploying delivery or service robots post COVID-19 to deliver food & beverages to their customers and students. The rising adoption of delivery robots to promote more socially distanced models of operation will propel the industry growth during the forecast timeframe.

Loss of manual jobs is one of the major factors affecting the market expansion. The rise in automation technology is expected to displace jobs and is likely to increase economic inequality. According to Oxford Economics report 2018, up to 20 million manufacturing jobs could be replaced by robots by 2030, thereby, increasing the unemployment rate in low-skill jobs.

The COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the robot market owing to the rapid acceptance of UVC disinfection and delivery robots in healthcare and hospitality industries in 2020. The social distancing norms and shortage of workforce have resulted in rapid deployment of robots during the pandemic. To mitigate the spread of virus and protect the healthcare workers, hospitals switched to disinfection robots to combat the omnipresent fear of SARS-CoV-2 virus, increasing the industry demand for robots.
