Top Ten Forecasts In The Robot Industry In Five Years
Dec 01, 2017

In the five years from 2018 to 2021, IDC made ten predictions for industrial, commercial and consumer applications robots:

Prediction 1: By 2019, robotics applications will increase by one-third; it is estimated that about 60% of the world's 2000 largest (global 2000) high-tech manufacturers will deploy industrial robots in manufacturing operations.

Prediction 2: By 2020, 45% of newly assembled industrial robots will be equipped with at least one intelligent function such as predictive analytics, health awareness, self-diagnosis, peer learning, or self-awareness.

Prediction 3: By 2021, the emergence of intelligent robotic agents responsible for robot supervision and coordination will effectively stimulate the entire industrial robot industry and increase efficiency by 30%.
Prediction 4: By 2021, 30% of Global 2000's manufacturers will deploy CyberWorks robotics systems, resulting in a 10-20% increase in productivity.

Prediction # 5: The global market for mobile security robots will grow by nearly 300% by 2020, while to enhance human security, about 30% of mobile security robots are expected to be equipped with on-board UAVs for deployment as necessary.

Prediction 6: By 2019, 25% of mobile robots will be deployed to include the ability to add modular components and multiple applications on the same mobile platform, resulting in a 30% increase in productivity and efficiency.

Forecast 7: By 2020, about 30% of the top 100 retailers will adopt or test robots in stores, reducing order costs by 20%.

Prediction 8: By 2021, 45% of mobile robot deployments will be "RaaS", providing devices that can quickly scale up and down as demand fluctuates and move robot deployments away from capital expenditures to Operating costs.

Forecast 9: Investments in software, hardware and services for deploying UAVs in the energy industry by 2020 will help to map and plan the infrastructure in oil, gas and coal mining areas and to survey and monitor thousands of acres of crops It is estimated that its output value will reach 1 billion U.S. dollars.

Prediction 10: By 2021, the consumer robotics market will multiply. The next generation of AI-based robots will reduce their focus on physical tasks, become more involved in the teaching and interaction of family members, and begin to move into families, thereby increasing Human life quality.
