Robots are machines which can be programmed to perform certain routine tasks on command. They are faster, more precise and consistent than human beings and thereby offer increased efficiency and productivity. Earlier, robots were primarily used in assembly lines of the automotive industry but their fields of application have widened drastically in recent years. Nowadays, their uses range from mowing lawns and cleaning nuclear waste to performing surgeries and exploring the outer space. According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Robotics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global robotics market reached a volume of 7.9 Million units in 2017, exhibiting a CAGR of around 23.1% during 2010-2017.
Growing investments and the subsequent advancements in robotics technology represent the key factors driving the robotics market. Robots have now become more intelligent with enhanced sensory perception as a result of improved vision, better force sensors and faster processors.
