SERVICE ROBOTICS – Use of UAV’s and UGV’s Reduces the Number of Casualties and Deaths During War

drone-784310_1920Service robots are the fully autonomous systems that have the ability to carry out the services without or with human assistance. They are used in different sectors assisting human in performing duties that are not possible for humans to perform. The service robots are segmented into professional and service robots based on their product types. The professional robots are used for commercial purpose whereas personal robots are used for domestic uses. They are used in many sectors and one of the most important areas of application is the medical sector and defense. They are used to assist human in performing duties that are not possible for humans to perform.

As the demand for automation rises from every sector of an economy, companies invest more on research and development of the latest technologies and equipment aimed at reducing the burden on human labor. A trend similar to this is observed in the defense and military sectors globally, which the report evaluates and examines in detail. Demand for service robotics, particularly from the defense industry, is expected to rise as tensions pertaining to bilateral relations between several neighboring countries escalate. Unmanned aerial vehicles and ground vehicles are the most popular service robots deployed by the defense sector. The use of these robots is likely to reduce the number of casualties and deaths during war.

Increase in investment in research and development, rapid industrialization and increase in demand for service robots in defense and security are the major drivers which are driving the service robotics market. The application of robots in several industries such as defense, healthcare, logistics, media and entertainment are expected to stipulate the demand of service robots during the forecast period. Moreover, use of service robots in defense is likely to decrease the number of death casualties and cause less damage to properties during war or combat situations. Additionally, with the rapid industrialization the demand for service robotics is expected to increase during the forecast period. Service robotics in industries leads to the rise of automation in the market globally.

High cost associated with development is acting as restraining factors in service robotics market. From designing to development it is a long procedure which takes a long time and charges extra costs before the actual manufacturing of service robots. Moreover, complicated interface of service robots is also an important factor acting as a restraint of this market.

Underdeveloped mobile automation is one of the major opportunities of this market. Most of the service robots are either stationary and are focused on performing a single task only. But the mobile automation in service robots is yet to be explored as they are still underdeveloped. The mobile service robots are used in the research and development labs to carry out different experiments. Moreover, increasing application areas globally is also a major opportunity of this market. The service robot is likely to be used in almost every sector and thus reduces the work load of humans.

The research study analyzes the Service Robotics market on a global level and provides anticipate in terms of revenue (USD billion) from 2015 to 2021. It recognizes the restraints and drivers affecting the industry and analyzes their impact during the anticipated period. Additionally, it identifies the major opportunities for market growth in the next few years.
