Use of industrial, commercial and consumer robots set to have massive impact according to new report from Transforma Insights

JUN 02, 2020
region: ALL sector: ALL Autonomous Robotic Systems

Transforma Insights today published its Autonomous Robotic Systems Technology Insight Report examining technologies, market dynamics, use cases and best practice in this critical technology field.

Over the last few years, stimulated by improvements in processing power, AI and connectivity, there has been a dramatic increase in interest in autonomous machines. The most eye-catching has been the potential of driverless cars to revolutionise the driving experience, albeit with some thorny safety issues to resolve. Alongside that has been the rather more rapid emergence of a host of other machines that operate with varying degrees of autonomy, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and robots performing tasks as diverse as delivering takeaways, building houses, performing surgery and manufacturing just about anything. What is promised is a world where machines can undertake, with decreasing amounts of supervision, a wide range of tasks that are today carried out by humans.


The drones market promises to be the most prominent and noticeable over the next few years as this hardware platform is used for an increasingly diverse range of functions. The automation of factory systems heralds a substantial change in manufacturing environments too. What is also interesting is the potential knock-on effect that the implementation of these systems might have on business practices, for instance the increased on-shoring of manufacturing.

Author Matt Hatton commented on the findings: “The use of UAVs, autonomous vehicles, and robots for delivery, domestic chores, warehousing, manufacturing, surgery and numerous other activities is set to boom in the next 5 years. Not only will they streamline costly business processes but they will also present us with very real evidence that finally we are living in the future.

This Technology Insight Report provides an overview of Autonomous Robotic Systems. It describes the overall market dynamics for the associated technologies, including market size and development trajectory, use cases, best practices, and recent market developments. The report explores the vendor landscape for Autonomous Robotic Systems, innovative players, vendor selection criteria, and highlights opportunities and risks for end users.
