A consumer or domestic robot is a service robot primarily designed for human related activities such as household chores, education, entertainment therapy and others. The global consumer robots market was estimated to generate a CAGR of 19.0 % to reach USD 17 billion during the forecast period ending 2023.
Technological drivers such as development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, gesture control, voice and speech recognition, sensor technology and others are the critical drivers of the market. Advancement in connected devices technology and sensors, Wi-Fi, and growing maneuverability, response speed of robots and human machine interface are other technical drivers of the market. The growing adaptability of robots for host of applications such as vacuuming, cleaning, entertainment and others are also driving the market to newer heights. High inventory costs and operating expenses are manufacturing constraints due to greater risks. Demand for substituting hazardous jobs such as drainage and others are other drivers.
The high price of robot installation and maintenance coupled with the lack of awareness in underdeveloped regions are major constraints on the Consumer robot market. Attitude towards technology and fear of loss of employment are social determinants of the market. Risk of injuries while handling robots, steep learning curve coupled with complexities in interaction with pets and infants are other restraints that need to be overcome.
