Mobile robots are robotic systems which usually have a movable platform to perform various tasks as per the application. These robots are of a great help to humans in applications where people cannot go or perform. Many mobile robots, especially in the professional applications have artificial intelligence that helps it achieve mobility mainly through navigation and sensors.

The global mobile robots market was valued at USD 4,438.9 Million in 2014 and it is expected to reach USD 10,605.4 Million by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 16.31% between 2015 and 2020. The market is expected to be driven by the integration of mobile robots with various technologies, increase in the demand for warehouse automation, and short- to medium-term payback period through 2020. Although the North American market accounted for the maximum market share in 2014, the Asia-Pacific and the RoW markets are expected to witness highest growth rates during the forecast period. The market is however restrained by factors including the high cost of ownership, and safety of mobile robots.

The North American region currently accounts for the highest market share, due to the well-established market and increasing adoption rate of mobile robots in various applications. However, the market is at a nascent stage of growth in the other parts of the world including Asia-Pacific, and RoW. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth of the market during the forecast period, driven by the rising awareness about the benefits of mobile robots and the escalating demand from defense, manufacturing, healthcare, education, and personal assistance applications.
