Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Smart Robots Market size is estimated to surpass USD 363.72 billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 33.50% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of smart robots was over USD 11.35 billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to growing adoption of cloud by organization all across the world. Over 5 out of 10 firms had migrated their work to the cloud as of 2022, and this trend is probably going to continue in the years to come. Hence, the adoption for smart robots is estimated to increase. These cloud robots make it easy for organization in order to collect information about the clients or customer. The information is then saved in a database system that is based in the cloud and accessible from a distance and used for operations, maintenance, and other purposes.

Moreover, the use of cloud technologies is what distinguishes cloud robotics from other forms of automation. The Robots-as-a-Service business model works well with cloud robotics. Robotics firms could rent out their technology to others over the cloud for a recurring fee, since the cloud-based infrastructure is made for remote access to robotic devices. Additionally, the investment on smart robots is also boosting which is further estimated to drive the smart robots market growth. François-Philippe Champagne, the federal minister of innovation, science, and industry, disclosed an about USD 29 million investment in Sanctuary Cognitive Systems Corporation in 2022, a robotics and AI-focused business in Vancouver. This funding, made through the Strategic Innovation Fund, was estimated to help an approximately USD 119 million initiative to create the first general-purpose robots with similar to human intelligence that actually work. The government wanted to put Canada at the forefront of the commercialization of artificial intelligence with this investment.

Smart Robots Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Production for Automobiles - Around 79 million automobiles were produced globally in 2021. Comparing this number to the prior year, a rise of about 2% may be calculated. Hence, robotics are used in automobile production processes to achieve extremely high levels of repeatability and precision, which optimizes the process and boosts efficiency. This is how manufacturers are able to meet the increasingly high industry standards they expect.
  • Rising Use of Smart Robots in Hospitals - The healthcare sector is responsible for over 29% of the total volume of data worldwide. The healthcare data industry would experience an approximately 35% compound annual growth rate by 2025. Hence, the demand for smart robots is growing. Health management systems for patients, illness archives, and electronic medical records are just a few of the services offered by the medical smart robots. Moreover, to help surgeons perform real-time surgeries and deliver clinical services to patients, the healthcare robotic equipment, for instance, connects to the medical cloud infrastructure. Therefore, growing demand for surgeries is also estimated to boost the smart robots market growth.
  • Surge in Construction Activities - From 2002 and 2021, the value of public residential construction investments increased significantly in the US. In residential development projects in 2021, the public sector made an estimated 10 billion USD in investments. Construction uses intelligent robotics to boost productivity, cut costs, and enhance safety. They could be employed for jobs such as building inspection and operating large machinery.
  • Growth in Demand for Transportation - A daily average of roughly 54 million tons of goods worth more than USD 53 billion was transported via the U.S. transportation system in 2019 in US. Hence, the demand for smart robots is estimated to increase, as they could be employed for activities such as container loading and unloading goods.
  • Upsurge in Agricultural Activities - Around five billion hectares, or 38% of the world's land surface, were used for agriculture in 2020.  The use of robotics in agriculture increases productivity and lowers labor expenses. They may be employed in activities including planting, harvesting, and maintaining a check on agricultural development.


  • Concern Regarding Data Privacy - Data ownership raises ethical concerns, particularly in light of the expansion of software services for robots. Private information about people is accessible on the cloud owing to the rise of domestic robots for entertainment, education, and housework. The privacy of individuals may be violated if third parties, including marketing firms, purchase this data frequently. For instance, Google (US) and Amazon (US) have made a number of robots, including the humanoid Lynx and the Roomba, capable of voice activation and intelligent reaction (vacuum cleaner). These gadgets' voice could be abused and infringed upon.
  • High Cost of Robots
  • Stringent Government Regulations

Smart Robots Segmentation

Industry Vertical (Automotive, Manufacturing, Electrical & Electronic, Food & Beverage, Chemical, Residential)

The global smart robots market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by industry vertical into automotive, manufacturing, electrical & electronics, food & beverage, chemical, and residential. Out of which, the automotive segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to growing use of robots in manufacturing automobiles. The highest number of robots are employed by the automobile industry, with operational stock reaching a new high of roughly 2 million units across the globe. Automobile manufacturers must keep up with both the overall advancement of technology and the rising demand of their existing market. Hence, for automakers to meet the needs of their present smart robots market, robots are essential. Robots could be made sophisticated enough to perform precise tasks including stamping metal plates, trimming plastics, and sewing with the help of camera arrays or light sensors for superior vision. Moreover, with the growing manufacturing of automobile the demand for paints is also growing. For automotive robotics, priming and painting the body is ideal. Robots won't eventually get incapacitated from inhaling paint's harmful vapors the way humans would. It may be configured to spray paint in a linear pattern, stop spraying at specific points, and define how many coats of paint it should apply after how many hours of drying, among other things, limiting paint waste.

Application (Welding & Painting, Assembling & Disassembling, Mobility, Inspection & Security)

The global smart robots market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into welding & painting, assembling & disassembling, mobility, and inspection & security.
