Humanoid Robot Market Statistics, 2031

The global humanoid robot market was valued at $307.6 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $609.5 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Significant indicators that the field of robotics is undergoing major transformation and development include the rise in commercial investment, the appearance of international players, decreased hardware costs, and the popularity of the existing robots.

Humanoid robotics can be helpful in research on embodiment and consciousness as well as, more broadly, the neuro and cognitive sciences, aside from pure robotics. They are also pictured working in the entertainment industry as receptionists and engaging in various social interactions, such as helping elderly people. Companies like as SoftBank Robotics in Japan and PAL Robotics in Spain have invested heavily in the creation of humanoid robots, and they have incorporated this technology into their business strategy in a variety of ways. One of these companies’ primary objectives is to create robots that may be used in the service industry, specifically in healthcare, hospitality, and retail.

Humanoid Robot Market

The high price of humanoid robot industry has been a major obstacle to their adoption, and finding the right financing and leasing options is just as important as choosing the right robot. When operating and deploying these robots, brick and mortar businesses need to carefully balance concerns about human labor. By giving businesses different payment options that can make the initial investment more manageable, financing and leasing options can assist in removing this barrier. Some robot distributors and manufacturers provide financing and leasing plans for their goods, enabling companies to pay for the robots over time rather than all at once.

The global market for humanoid robots is expected to experience significant growth potential due to the quick technological improvements in the creation of more effective and affordable robot models. Additionally, it is anticipated that the market will grow in the upcoming years due to the increasing adoption of humanoid robots for military & defense applications to provide battlefield intelligence, or the knowledge of enemy movements. In addition, the expanding trend of industry automation is anticipated to increase the demand for humanoid robots in the near future.

Segment Overview

The global humanoid robot market is segmented on the basis of component, application, motion type, and region. By component, the market is sub-segmented into hardware and software. By application, the market is classified into research & space exploration, education & entertainment, personal assistance & caregiving, hospitality, search & rescue, and others. By motion type, the market is classified into biped and wheel drive. By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

By Component

The hardware sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. Hardware components in particular enhance humanoid robots' ability to interact with humans.Advances in materials science, robotics engineering, and control systems design have all contributed to the development of more sophisticated and capable robots that can perform a wider range of tasks with greater efficiency and precision. All these factors are driving the hardware sub segment during the forecast period.

Humanoid Robot Market by Component

By Application

The personal assistance & caregiving sub-segment dominated the global humanoid robot market share in 2021. Humanoid robots were viewed as a valuable resource during the coronavirus outbreak because the virus has no effect on them. They could easily monitor patients and offer vital services without assistance from humans. These machines are therefore being used more frequently, which raises their worth. The humanoid robots will be able to perform other fundamental medical tasks without endangering the health of human healthcare workers. These are predicted to be the major factors affecting the humanoid robot market size during the forecast period too.

Humanoid Robot Market by Application

By Motion Type

The wheel drive sub-segment dominated the global humanoid robot market share in 2021. The wheel drive robots are simple to build and can be programmed to navigate their environment. Because of its numerous advantages, demand for wheel-type robots in army & defense applications is expected to grow. Robots are used as entertainment in scientific fairs, theme parks, and amusement parks. These factors are expected to drive the humanoid robot market forecast period growth in the upcoming year.

Humanoid Robot Market by Motion Type

By Region

Asia-Pacific dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to remain the fastest-growing sub-segment during the forecast period. The presence of prominent competitors, as well as the adoption of automated systems by the majority of industry verticals, is expected to result in considerable development in the Asia-Pacific market. Furthermore, labor shortages combined with high labor costs are increasing the demand for humanoid robots to perform tasks in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and retail, which is expected to drive market growth in Asia-Pacific.
