Defense Sub-segment to Grow Rapidly Backed by Rising Usage of UAVs

Based on the application, the market is bifurcated into industrial/commercial and domestic. The defense sub-segment under the industrial/commercial segment held 17.4% in terms of service robotics market share in 2019. This growth is attributable to the increasing deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the industry because of their ability to protect soldiers from harm.  

Regional Analysis-

Rapid Industrialization & Globalization to Favor Growth in Asia Pacific

Geographically, Europe procured USD 4.21 billion in terms of revenue in 2019. This growth is attributable to the increasing demand for personal and professional robots in the region. Also, the urgent need for service robots from retail, medical, defense, and logistics sectors in this region would accelerate growth.

Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is anticipated to showcase the highest CAGR throughout the forthcoming years because of the rising government investments in AI, robotics, and automation. Besides, the increasing standards of living of people in China and India would surge the demand for automation. Rapid industrialization and globalization would also contribute to growth in this region.
