Construction Robotics Market Statics - 2027
The construction robotics market size was valued at $2,450.7 million in 2019, and is expected to reach $7,880.3 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 23.3% from 2020 to 2027. Construction robotics refers to construction operations that are automatically carried out by using automated construction equipment or construction robots. It is used in applications such as building and demolishing of residential, commercial, and industrial infrastructures. Construction robotics has reduced or completely removed human intervention from construction activities. Construction robots are used in activities such as demolition of structures as well as 3D printing of walls & structures. In addition, construction robots can be used for material handling activities such as placing bricks to build wall and transportation of building material vertically or horizontally on construction site. Further, automatic drones are used for surveillance of construction sites that are not easily accessible or need to be remotely monitored.
Construction robotics is an effective solution in the construction industry. It is majorly driven due to enhanced productivity and quality achieved by robots. In addition, there is more security and safety in the works done in adverse conditions. For instance, demolition activity can cause injury to the worker while breaking down the structure, however, the demolition robot can be used instead of a person. This makes the operation safer for the workers. Further, there is rapid adoption of 3D printing globally as an alternative for high cost for skilled labor. In addition, there is minimum wastage of building material in 3D printing process, thus driving the construction robotics market globally. However, the technology designed and developed to operate the equipment can be costlier. Smart sensors, development of software, configuration of equipment with the software, and actual carrying out the construction operations and activities increase the cost of the system. Therefore, these factors restrain the construction robotics market growth.
Moreover, during the outbreak of COVID-19, construction, manufacturing, hotel, and tourism industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were also stopped or restricted to a huge extent. Construction and transportation activities along with their supply chains were hampered on a global level. This led to decline in manufacturing of construction material and robots, which directly hampers the market of construction robotics. However, gradually, all industries are resuming their regular manufacturing and services. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of construction robots manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities, which is expected to help the market to start to recover by the end of 2021.
Surveillance segment holds the largest share in construction robotics market
On the contrary, there is rise in adoption of automation in the construction industry. There are lots of new technologies being developed that are configured with the equipment and used in construction activities. This has resulted in efficiently carrying out the construction processes. By recognizing the growth of automation in the construction market, several new start-ups have been founded and robotics has been introduced in the construction market.
The construction robotics market is segmented into application, sales type, end user, and region. On the basis of application, the market is divided into demolition, 3D printing, material handling, and surveillance. Based on sales type, it is bifurcated into new sales and aftermarket. Depending on end user, it is classified into residential, industrial, and commercial.
