BOSTON, Massachusetts, February 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
IDTechEx Research, a leading provider of independent market research, business intelligence and events on emerging technology, announces the availability of a new report, Sensors for Robotics: Technologies, Markets and Forecasts 2017-2027.
Innovation in robotics is moving ahead at a fast pace, spearing ahead the expected proliferation of robots in new and existing applications. Deploying sensors in robotics allows for the creation of robots that can "see" and "feel", in a biomimetic way, like humans do. These sensor enabled, advanced robots are now able to undertake more complicated tasks and are being deployed into industrial, commercial, domestic, logistic and other sectors where robot penetration was previously limited. The market for robotic vision and force sensing alone is expected to reach over $16.1 billion by 2027, as described in the newly launched IDTechEx report Sensors for Robotics: Technologies, Markets and Forecasts 2017-2027.
The report focuses on sensor technologies and components in robotics applications that are currently under development and are enjoying increased visibility, investment and growth. This is mainly due to the capabilities sensors are expected to enable in robotics. Robotic systems will proliferate in many more market segments than current robotic systems address. Vision systems alone will be a market of $5.7 billion by 2027, force sensing will reach over $6.9 billion while the multiple sensors in domestic robots will account for $3.6 billion, representing almost 30% of their value.
As a result of the introduction of these new features in robots, increased uptake of robotic systems in new and existing sectors and applications is expected; it is due to improved performance and the introduction of robots with new and expanded capabilities. These include but are not limited to communication capabilities, environmental perception, and sensor-enabled mobility which in turn enable concepts such as collaborative robots, advanced mobile robots and autonomous vehicles. The features of these robots as well as their sensor requirements are described in detail in the report.
