Robot Sensors Market worth over $5bn by 2028

  • Published Date: February 3, 2022

Robot Sensors Market size is set to surpass USD 5 billion by 2028, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The robot sensors market growth is attributed to the rising adoption of automation technologies in industries including manufacturing, mining, chemical, medical, and automotive. According to the World Robotics Report 2021, industrial robot stocks increased by 10%, reaching 3.0 million units with a 3% increase in industrial robot installations worldwide. These robots are outfitted with a variety of advanced sensors including proximity, tactile, force, vision, and ultrasonic to provide high accuracy & efficiency. Furthermore, a decreasing cost of mobile robots has encouraged small enterprises to develop & adopt automation technologies, boosting the market potential in the coming years.

The high cost of 4D vision and LiDAR technology incorporated in industrial and service robots is impeding growth opportunities in the robot sensors market. LiDAR is a high-power consumption technology used in robots, making it expensive and inefficient for small businesses. Moreover, several companies are inclined to develop low-cost & compact robot sensors, which will overcome these challenges.
