According to Michael Sullivan, senior editor, BCC Research, and report author, “Robotics have been a commercial venture dominated by industrial automation in the manufacturing sector. The use of such systems in the government, especially the military, and healthcare are also well developed, but the consumer market is quickly becoming equally important. From drones to telepresence, automated cleaning to toys, there are a wide variety of applications that require low cost sensors.”

Key Research Findings on Sensors for Robotics:

  • BCC Research expects the market to grow to $510 million in 2017 and $840 million in 2022, at a CAGR of 10.5%.
  • Europe will lead that market growth with a 12.6% CAGR.
  • The industry will continue to be dominated by commercial applications at more than 80% share led by industrial applications, followed by healthcare and automotive segments.  However, consumer markets will outpace growth rates in other markets citing a 12.6% CAGR, to attain $20 million by 2022.
  • The total number of robotic appliances is increasing while the cost of sensors is decreasing, creating a robust market for sensors for robotics at a lower revenue per sensor.

In addition, the new report presents an analysis of the competitive dynamics of the sensors for robotics market, including critical success factors such as research and development capability, installed base, branding and ecosystem influence and partnerships. Profiles of the top 30 manufacturers of sensors for robotics are also included.
