Along with these, the growth of the market can also be attributed to the increasing military expenditure, especially in developed and developing countries, and rapid technological advancements in the robotics industry around the world. According to the World Bank, the military expenditure in the United States reached a value of 3.741 percent  of GDP in 2020, up from 3.427 percent and 3.316 percent in 2019 and 2018 respectively.

Military Expenditure

The market is segmented by platform type into ground, marine, and aerial, out of which, the ground segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global search and rescue robots market. This can be accounted to the high usefulness of ground robots when dealing with post-disaster interventions and for urban search and rescue. Apart from this, these robots provide shorter rescue times, faster location of victims, and faster assessment of building damage, which is also predicted to boost the market segment growth in the future. Additionally, on the basis of operation, the segment for autonomous robots is assessed to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period owing to the superior efficiency and productivity, improved safety for employees, and reduction in error and risk rates offered by these robots. 

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Research Development

The never-ending growth in internet accessibility around the world along with numerous technological advancements comprising 5G, blockchain, cloud services, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) among others have significantly boosted the economic growth in the last two decades. As of April 2021, there were more than 4.5 billion users that were actively using the internet globally. Moreover, the growth in ICT sector has significantly contributed towards GDP growth, labor productivity, and R&D spending among other transformations of economies in different nations of the globe. Furthermore, the production of goods and services in the ICT sector is also contributing to the economic growth and development. As per the statistics in the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development’s database, the ICT good exports (% of total good exports) globally grew from 10.816 in 2015 to 11.536 in 2019. In 2019, these exports in Hong Kong SAR, China amounted to 56.65%, 25.23% in East Asia & Pacific, 26.50% in China, 25.77% in Korea, Rep., 8.74% in the United States, and 35.01% in Vietnam. These are some of the important factors that are boosting the growth of the market.
