Cloud Robotics Market Research, 2031

The global cloud robotics market size was valued at $4.62 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $43.73 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 25.3% from 2022 to 2031.

Cloud robotics is a branch of robotics that attempts to use cloud technologies such as cloud computing, cloud storage, and other Internet technologies to support robotics by leveraging the benefits of converged infrastructure and shared services. When networked to the cloud, robots can take advantage of the tremendous processing, storage, and communication resources of current cloud data centers, which can analyze and exchange information from several robots or agents (other machines, smart objects, humans, and others).

The rise in demand for work from home and remote working tools during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic aided in propelling the growth of the global cloud robotics market. However, the complex security and privacy challenges of the cloud robotics platforms can hamper the cloud robotics market forecast. On the contrary, a positive drive toward centralized monitoring and control of industrial tools is expected to offer remunerative opportunities for expansion of the cloud robotics market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 caused a significant shift in economies around the globe. According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal, the year-over-year decline in exports in the U.S. between April 2020 and April 2021, and the increase in imports over that same period of time, the regional manufacturing and industrial operations were significantly affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. This resulted in slowing down of many industries that served industrial sectors, including robotics solutions. However, there was a significant increase in demand for robotics and automation solutions in the healthcare and chemical industries owing to the increased demand for medical and vaccine supply, resulting in a great new avenue for the global cloud robotics market. Furthermore, even after the first few phases of the COVID-19 lockdowns, availability of on-site workers became scarce in many parts of the world, which enabled manufacturing industries, use for robots for performing jobs like lifting and transporting products from one location to another, performing tasks like welding, cutting, packaging the products, among others. Cloud robotics solutions enabled a smooth transition of the traditional manufacturing industry towards automation.

 

Top Impacting Factors

Improving Communications and Internet Technology

Outside of the traditional benefits that cloud integration can provide such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, storage, security, and computation services, improving communications standards are also enabling cloud robotics to integrate the functionalities of edge computing and benefits of ultra-low network latency with the help of modern 5G networks. With faster communication networks, robots and system automation have shifted from being the future innovations of the research labs to actually becoming a crucial cost, time, and energy-saving element of modern industries and businesses. Intelligent robots and their control systems have enabled entire processes, like vehicle assembly, to be carried out automatically. By adding mobility to the mix, the possibilities to include system automation in almost any industry increases dramatically. Moreover, the basic characteristic that determines the stability and operability of cloud-controlled robot control is the network latency, and so for most use cases, 4G is a good starting point to provide connectivity. But with newer technologies such as 5G, which supports a wider range of requirements including sub-millisecond latency, it can fulfill both the bandwidth and latency needs that applications such as remote-control robotics may require. Furthermore, sub-millisecond latency is needed when touch or force sensors are used to maintain control over robot movement, as sub-millisecond latency can allow superior and near real-time control over a robot’s movement. Such advancements in communication technologies are promising great prospects for the future of the cloud robotic industry.

 

Growing Demand for Automation in The Industrial and Manufacturing Sectors 

Many critical industrial operations such as painting, machining, material handling, welding, and assembling are now being replaced by automated robots. These robots use electrical, mechanical, and software systems which can exceed the performance, speed, accuracy, and precision of a regular human worker. Moreover, automation in industrial robots has been very successful, owing to its high precision and speed in structured factory environments. However, these robots need to be integrated with a strong network and communication infrastructure, in order to be deployed in such environments. Thus, industrial robots are now being interconnected through the help of the cloud, enabling them to remotely access datasets to support different types of functions. Hence, automation in industries is expected to boost the global cloud robotics market growth during the forecast period.
