NEW YORK, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The market for telepresence robots is developing rapidly, and the addition of mobility to telepresence systems promises to open a wide range of new use cases that will have a significant impact on collaboration and communication in the enterprise, education, healthcare, and consumer markets alike. The telepresence robot is the next stage of evolution beyond stationary video conferencing, taking advantage of the existing telecommunications infrastructure as well as recent advances in robotics technology. The core enabling technologies for these robots are already widespread in the market, with costs on a steady downward trajectory, and no significant barriers exist to broader levels of adoption in the years to come.
Tractica's analysis indicates that the three leading application markets in the telepresence robot sector are healthcare, education, and enterprise, with a significant market also emerging for consumer telepresence robots. In healthcare, early adopters include hospitals where patients have access to leading medical specialists from all over the world. For teachers than cannot be in the classroom or students who are not mobile, they can now be in the classroom without actually being there. For executives that cannot be in multiple places at once, they can now be in the factory for inspections or attending an important meeting without actually spending time on an airplane. The potential applications for telepresence robots are broad, as validated by the wide range of early adopter case studies. Tractica forecasts that, starting from a base of 4,200 units in 2015, annual telepresence robot unit shipments will reach 31,600 by 2020, with cumulative shipments for the 5-year forecast period totaling nearly 92,000.
This Tractica report examines the market trends and technology issues surrounding telepresence robots, and presents 5-year forecasts for telepresence robot systems during the period from 2015 through 2020. Telepresence robot application markets are analyzed in depth, and the report also includes detailed profiles of key industry players.
