Smart Robot Market Overview:

Smart robot Market was estimated to be worth USD 7.75 Billion in 2021, accounting for a CAGR of 22.5 % during the forecast period (2022-2030), and the market is expected to be worth USD 48.14 Billion by 2030.

A smart robot is a machine that is designed to perform a vast variety of tasks and functions with a High degree of intelligence and autonomy. Generally using artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL), and other advanced technologies. To be specific, smart robotics as a technology involving robots that can collaborate with human beings and also learn from their environment/experience and could consequently refine or modify their actions accordingly. These robots could be employed in multiple fields like manufacturing, healthcare, military & defense, and could thus also in domestic applications for functions like Cleaning (for example, Roomba). Moreover, an array of Hospitality Bots, Autonomous Drones, Medical Assistant Bots, and many more are also currently developed. These bots do not have human limitations like exhaustion and monotony from repetitive tasks. Consequently, businesses all over the world are integrating smart robots into manufacturing processes. Furthermore, businesses and governments have also amplified their investments in the research and development of these robots due to their workability in professional tasks.

For instance, Japan’s government have recently allotted 30 million us dollars for R&D purpose. With advancements in technology and robotics smart robots will go more mainstream which will positively impact their demand. 



  • Demand for modern smart robots with advancement in the direction of industry 4.0 :-

Industry 4.0 refers to the current industrial revolution. Which is led by the evolution of smart robotics, artificial intelligence, and internet of things (IOT). The smart robots are expected to be crucial building blocks in the development of new age industries.

  • Health care industry is anticipated to drive the demand(surgical robots ,Germ-Zapping Robot) :-

Robots do not have human limitations. “They are tireless and there hand never shake unlike humans”. Smart robots can do wonders in the medical industry. Currently there are few surgical robots used alongside surgeons in medical industry. With technological advancements the involvement of smart robots is set to rise in coming years. These robots could also be used for emotional support with old age patients.

  • Integration into defense applications(explosive diffusion, surveillance )

Human life is the most valuable asset any country could have and smarts robots could play a crucial role in saving them. Defense agencies all around the globe are investing heavily into the research and development of smart robots. Which could effectively understand the terrain and could perform assigned task with human intervention.

For instance, The Defense Department of the US military has been allocated about $7.5 billion in fiscal year 2021 for a variety of robotic platforms and related technologies. Such investments by major military superpowers are set to drive the demand for smart robots into defense sector.

  • Demand from construction industry :-

Metal fabrication plays a crucial role in construction industry. These equipments are helpful in shaping the materials like reinforcing bars, metal sheets, screws, nuts, bolts, anchors, windows, doors, metal tubing. Which are crucial for strengthening the architecture and framework of high-rise buildings, hospitals, and residential structures. APEC countries like China and India alone account for 40% of the total construction activity globally. These construction activities are estimated to drive the growth of this market in coming few years.

  • Aerospace Metal Fabrication applications:-

Aerospace industry indulges itself in aspects like designing, building, testing, maintaining aircraft, aircraft parts, missiles, rockets and spacecraft. This industry has very crucial application of smart robot s as high quality and standards are must in order to ensure passengers safety. The growth of aerospace industry is directly linked to the growth of smart robot Market.


  • Involvement of high cost of research and development :-

High cost involvement in research and development is the main constraint faced by this the smart robot industry. The development of modern robotic technology is very complex process and takes years of research.

  • Higher Risk of cybersecurity attacks :-

This is also one of the major concern which is obstructing the wide integration of smart robots in crucial industries like medical and defense. Robots could are much easier to manipulate then humans due to lack of emotions and morality.

This is a major Dilemma faced by militaries all over the world. Because cyberattacks on medical and defense robots will have dire consequences.

Covid-19 Impact:

Covid pandemic is estimated to have positive impact on the smart robots market. These robots were extensively deployed in hospitals for functions like sample collection and food dispersal. China was one of the major countries which deployed large number of such robots into hospitals. Apart from China countries in European region like Italy and France were also severally impacted due to covid spread. Restaurants and hotels had to switch to these robots in order to reduce contact and consequently curb the virus spread. In retrospect the COVID pandemic is estimated to have a positive impact on the demand for smart robots.
