The global robotics technology market size was estimated at USD 79.5 billion in 2021 and is expected to surpass around USD 225.6 billion by 2030 with a registered CAGR of 12.29% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.
One of the key factors driving the growth of global robotics technology market is the growing number of investments and fundings in the field of technology. As per the International Federation of Robotics' World Robotics report, demand for robots has been fueled by investments in new vehicle production capabilities and modernization of industrial areas. In addition, the surge in demand for industrial robots is driving the growth of the global robotic technology market. BMW AG, for example, signed an agreement with KUKA in 2020 to deliver roughly 5,000 robots for new manufacturing lines and factories around the world. These industrial robots will be deployed globally at BMW Group's foreign manufacturing locations to manufacture current and future vehicle models, according to KUKA.
Another significant factor boosting the growth of the global robotic technology market is the growing utilization of service robots all around the world. There are 2,384,600 building janitors and cleaners, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Annually, businesses spend around USD 60 billion. This does not include the rising cost of insurance, as the cleaning business has one of the highest rates of workplace injuries. As a result, this factor is driving demand for cleaning robots, which is supporting the growth of the global robotic technology market over the forecast period.
The market for robotic technology is very fragmented. The robotic technology industry offers attractive potential because of Industry 4.0 and regional digitalization initiatives. Given the number of robotic trade exhibitions that occur across different areas on a regular basis, the level of transparency is considerable. Overall, there is fierce competition among existing players. The huge organizations are expected to make collaboration and business expansions with new entrants that are focused on modernization.

The traditional industrial robots segment dominated the robotics technology market in 2021. The introduction of various types of production control techniques, as well as the implementation of automation solutions, are significant components of current production improvement plans. Furthermore, as industrial robots become more popular, they are being used in a variety of industries, including manufacturing and healthcare. Industrial robotics is a rapidly growing sector with applications in a wide range of industries.
The cobots segment is the fastest-growing segment of the robotics technology market in 2021. Collaborative robots, or cobots, are designed to assist humans in doing certain activities that are both sophisticated and precise. Humans and robots collaborate closely. The robots are capable of detecting odd activity in their environment and collaborating with humans without being physically separated. Cobots are more appealing to employ in factories and industries because of their smarter, smaller, more flexible, and user-friendly qualities. The need for Cobots is being driven by increased rivalry in numerous industries, as well as a greater focus on automation.
The healthcare segment dominated the robotics technology market in 2021. The robots in the healthcare sector assist with minimally invasive treatments, personalized and frequent monitoring for patients with chronic conditions, intelligent therapies, and social interaction for the elderly.
The logistics segment is the fastest growing segment of the robotics technology market in 2021. The robots in the logistics sector manage the storage and movement of items as they move through the supply chain. They're frequently used to arrange and transfer things in warehouses and storage facilities, a procedure known as intralogistics, but they can also be employed in other locations. Logistics robots have considerably higher uptime than manual labor, resulting in significant productivity and economic increases for businesses who use them.
Asia-Pacificdominated the robotics technology market in 2021. China, South Korea, and India dominated the robotics technology market in Asia-Pacific region. The growth of robotics technology market in Asia-Pacific region is being driven by growing constant efforts by government towards the technological developments. Furthermore, the Housing Development Board at Singapore, plans to use autonomous drones or robots to identify which areas of public housing blocks need to be cleaned. The main goal is to save water by cleaning only the dirty areas. In addition, market players are adopting various strategies, which is boosting the growth of Asia-Pacific robotics technology market. The Adibot robotic disinfection system combines Ubtech's robotics and artificial intelligence with UV-C technology to disinfect specific surfaces and air by destroying the DNA and RNA of hazardous microorganisms.
Europe, on the other hand, is expected to develop at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The UK dominates the robotics technology market in Europe region. Educational robots, industrial robots, interactive entertainment robots, and service robots have all seen increased demand in recent years in Europe. Denmark, Germany, Sweden, and Italy are the top European countries where industrial robots are widely used. The European regional market is growing as a result of the rising usage of robots in both the industrial and domestic sectors. The region's regional market is being driven by advanced expansion and the development of cutting-edge robotics technology.
