According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Mobile Robot Market is accounted for $20.35 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $42.61 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 16.9% during the forecast period. Mobile robots refer to autonomous or semi-autonomous robotic systems designed to move through and interact with their environment. These robots can operate in a variety of settings, including indoor and outdoor environments, and they are equipped with sensors, processors, and actuators to navigate, perceive, and perform tasks. Mobile robots are continuously evolving, and their versatility makes them valuable across various industries, contributing to increased efficiency, safety, and productivity in different applications.

According to an online portal PICK-PLACE, by 2018, 45% of the 200 leading global commerce companies deployed robotics system in their order fulfillment, warehouse, and delivery operations.

Market Dynamics:


Rapid growth of e-commerce

The rapid growth of e-commerce has significantly contributed to the increasing demand for mobile robots in various aspects of the supply chain and logistics. E-commerce businesses often deal with dynamic and fluctuating inventory levels. Mobile robots are employed in warehouses to automate the picking, packing, and sorting processes, enabling faster order processing. Mobile robots often enables faster and more accurate order processing, optimized warehouse space, last-mile delivery, improved capabilities, scalability and flexibility. All these benefits are fuelling the market growth.


Lack of awareness

Companies that are unaware of how mobile robots can enhance their operations may miss out on potential business opportunities and efficiency gains. Lack of awareness may contribute to a resistance to change. Also, if manufacturers and developers fail to educate potential users about the advantages of mobile robots, their marketing efforts may be less effective. Further, the market may fail to evolve and capitalize on emerging trends and technologies, limiting its overall growth potential.


Rising need for automation in healthcare facilities

Mobile robots can perform repetitive and time-consuming tasks, such as delivering medications, transporting medical equipment, and managing inventory, more efficiently than human staff in the healthcare sector. Mobile robots can operate without direct human intervention, reducing the risk of contamination and the spread of infections. They can also provide real-time data monitoring, enabling healthcare providers to remotely track patient's vital signs and conditions. Additionally, its capabilities such as inventory management, remote monitoring, telemedicine support, reduced costs, patient care and assistance propels the market demand.


Security concerns

Mobile robots, especially those equipped with sensors and cameras, generate and process a significant amount of data. Concerns arise regarding the security and privacy of this data. Industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, and logistics may handle sensitive information that, if compromised, could lead to serious consequences. Their connectivity makes them vulnerable to cybersecurity threats, including hacking, data breaches, and unauthorized access. Security concerns also extend to the physical realm. Fear of data breaches, accidents, or intentional misuse may lead to resistance from potential users or the general public, affecting the widespread adoption of these technologies.

Covid-19 Impact

The impact of COVID-19 on the mobile robot industry has been both challenging and transformative. The pandemic highlighted the need for automation in various industries to ensure business continuity while minimizing human-to-human contact. With the surge in online shopping during lockdowns and restrictions, e-commerce and logistics companies faced a higher demand for efficient and automated solutions. The global supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic led to a renewed focus on resilience and flexibility. While the demand for mobile robots increased, deployment faced challenges due to lockdowns, travel restrictions, and supply chain disruptions.

The personal & domestic robots segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The personal & domestic robots segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Mobile personal and domestic robots offer a range of uses and benefits, enhancing convenience, efficiency, and even entertainment in various aspects of daily life. They are designed to simplify tasks, improve quality of life, and bring automation and innovation to various aspects of daily activities. Their versatility allows them to adapt to a wide range of applications, making them valuable additions to modern households.

The logistics & warehousing segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The logistics & warehousing segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Mobile robots play a crucial role in revolutionizing logistics and warehousing operations, offering various uses and benefits that enhance efficiency, accuracy, and overall productivity. Mobile robots can be employed for the movement of goods within warehouses, including tasks such as picking, packing, and sorting. Mobile robots can operate continuously, increase operational efficiency, minimizes errors, reduces labor costs, and optimizes the use of warehouse space.

Region with largest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Countries like China, Japan, and South Korea, is a hub for manufacturing and industrial activities.
