Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Social Robots Market size is poised to reach USD 45 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 33% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of social robots was USD 2 Billion. The reason behind the growth is due to the growing adoption of robotsics and automation across the globe. More and more jobs that have historically required less expertise and lower compensation are being replaced by robotss to increase efficiency, productivity, and safety.

For instance, more than 553,050 industrial robotss are currently installed in factories worldwide, representing an annual growth rate of around 4% in 2022.  Particularly, of all the recently deployed robotss, over 70% were located in Asia, 14% in Europe, and 9% in the Americas.

The growing integration of artificial intelligence is believed to fuel the market growth. One of the technologies that has most accelerated mobile robotsics and automation is artificial intelligence (AI) which enables to carry out complicated activities that were previously only conceivable for people, more accurately resemble human behavior, enables robotss to make judgments based on sensor data, and adapt to new circumstances, and learn from past experiences.

Social Robots Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Development of Synergetic Interaction Methods - The Development of synergetic interaction methods for communicating with the robotss, such as one-to-one conversation and eye gaze, is estimated to boost the demand for social robotss.  In addition, state-of-the-art voice recognition technology has promise for numerous advantages and also aids in the introduction of "hearing" and the use of speech as a natural language processing (NLP) interface for human-robots interaction.
  • Growing Elderly Population- Social robotss support psychosocial needs, assist manage chronic illnesses, encourage good habits, build connections, give access to helpful information, and are seen as a possible technological option to help alleviate some of the problems brought on by growing aging populations. According to estimates, the percentage of people over 60 in the world is predicted to increase from 12 to over 20% between 2015 and 2050.
  • Surging Prevalence of Anxiety and Depression- Social robots solutions are being used to lessen loneliness and depression, and are intended to engage people and give them a secure, accepting environment in which to communicate their symptoms of stress, anxiety, and sadness.
  • Increasing Demand for Personalized Services- Artificially intelligent social robotss offer a range of personalized services as they can carry out tailored learning tasks and seamlessly incorporate them into educational activities in a fun and engaging way.
  • Social Robotss in Workspaces- The goal of social robotss is to work alongside people in collaborative workspaces to improve the convenience and comfort of human lives, carry out simple duties like handing a worker a tool, and remind workers of their prolonged sitting period.


  • Security and Privacy Concerns - Social robotss utilize a variety of private and sensitive user data, which presents security and privacy risks including forging login passwords, obtaining information from robotss, and hacking the gadgets. A serious risk to user privacy exists since some of the most widely used consumer robotss are frighteningly simple to hack and might be used as bugging devices.
  • High Initial Investment Owing to Complex Design, and Extensive Research and Development
  • Lack of Technical Temperament in Low-Income Economies

Social Robots Segmentation

End-User (Healthcare, Education, Entertainment, Retail)

The healthcare segment in the social robots market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 40% in the coming years owing to the growing burden of autism among children. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social life and is one of the most debilitating developmental disorders. Moreover, ASD can lead to severe difficulties with behavior, and social interaction, and can impede the language and communication development of children.

For kids with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), robots-assisted treatment (RAT) is a promising field in translational neuroscience as they have been found to have a favorable effect on their ability to imitate, make eye contact, and exhibit repetitive and stereotyped behavior. Social robotss are being employed more and more as mediators between a child and a therapist since they are less frightening than humans and have a solid, three-dimensional presence. For instance, Orbit, an interactive robots, hopes to educate kids with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) about emotions and teaches kids how to build social appropriateness through visual communication, physical engagement, and storytelling.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, an estimated 1 in 100 children suffer from autism.

In addition, social robotss can take on a variety of roles to assist or instruct pupils while they study as they are capable of filling a variety of positions, such as novice, tutor, and teaching assistant. In education, social robotss are being utilized more and more, and over time, they have become more and more common, and have demonstrated efficacy in improving cognitive and affective outcomes, and on limited tasks, they have produced results comparable to those of human tutoring.

Technology (Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Context Awareness, Natural Language Processing)

The machine learning segment in the social robots market is set to garner a notable share shortly. Robotss with machine learning algorithms installed can learn about their environment and how to interact with it by analyzing large volumes of data and adjust to changing environments since they can recognize patterns, and anticipate outcomes. Moreover, machine learning-equipped social robotss can identify speech patterns, comprehend context, identify emotions from voice tonality, and can recognize and interact with items in their environment with previously unheard-of precision and dexterity.
