Global Mobile Robotics Market Size, Status and Forecast 2019-2025

A mobile robot is an automatic machine that is not fixed to one position. It is capable of moving in an environment for which it is designed. It can function autonomously or can be remotely controlled. Mobile robots have been deployed in the Aerospace and Defense industry for many years; however, now these robots are gaining popularity among industrial and commercial applications too. Apart from the Aerospace and Defense industry, these robots are being used in industries such as Automotive, Warehouse, Healthcare, Energy, and Agriculture and Mining.
With the escalating need for industrial mobile robots to enhance workplace efficiency, the global market for mobile robotics is registering a significant progress in its size and valuation. These mobile robots have the ability to move inside the factories without modifying the factory layout and they can also re-plan their routes autonomously to avoid obstacles, which make them highly effective in the factory setup. Owing to these factors, companies are prompted to deploy mobile robots in their plants, which is reflecting greatly on the sales of mobile robotics.
In 2018, the global Mobile Robotics market size was xx million US$ and it is expected to reach xx million US$ by the end of 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during 2019-2025.
