Consumer robotics hardware revenue to reach $23bn by 2022

Consumer robotics hardware revenues are predicted to soar from an estimated $6.4 billion in 2018 to nearly $23 billion by 2022, according to a new study from Juniper Research.

This is an increase of over 250 per cent, with toys, education and the domestic-aide sectors being key to the growth of consumer robotics in the coming years.

Juniper Research’s syudy, Consumer Robotics: Sector Analysis, Leading Innovators and Emerging Opportunities 2018-2022, but the biggest growth area will be in the educational area, representing an average annual growth of 40 per cent in hardware revenues.

“With the disruption that AI and the changing nature of work will bring worldwide, STEM education will be more important than ever,” said research author Nick Maynard.

“Educational robotics is a brilliant way for parents to make these subjects engaging in the home.”
