Global ROS-based Robot Market Expected to Reach 13.5 Million Units by 2024

FREMONT, California, July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- BIS Research, the global leader in market intelligence for emerging technologies, has released its latest report, Global ROS-Based Robot Market, for the forecast period of 2019-2024. According to the report, the global ROS-based robot market is projected to reach 13.5 million units in 2024, from 4.4 million units in 2018; and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.02% in terms of volume.

The increasing demand for robots across industries has propelled makers to develop robotics applications based on standardized codes, which can be then reused for manufacturing multiple types of robots. However, the development of Robot Operating System (ROS) in 2007 enabled the manufacturing of robots based on standardized codes.

ROS is a meta-operating system for robotics, which is somewhat of a cross between an operating system and middleware. It provides high level functionalities apart from standard operating system services, including synchronous and asynchronous calls, robot configuration systems, a centralized database, and so on. Prior to the existence of ROS, robotic researchers and robotic designers spent a considerable amount of time designing the embedded software within the robot, which required niche skills in electronics and embedded programming apart from mechanical engineering.

The idea of ROS is to offer standardized functionalities such as performing hardware abstraction, similar to conventional OS for PCs. ROS combines expertise from different disciplines, as the field of robotics generally demands diverse skill sets. Most of the existing operating systems are developed for a specific purpose, whereas ROS is a general purpose OS (though it is not capable of carrying out all tasks).

In order to reduce the development cost for robotic applications, there has been a surge in the adoption of open source operating systems in industrial and service robots. In addition, the acceleration in funding and investment for robotics technologies is one of the major factors expected to create lucrative opportunities for the global ROS-based robot market in the coming five years.

According to Sudheer Uniyal, Lead Analyst at BIS Research, "ROS-enabled robots have opened up a new dimension of automation across multiple industries. Most importantly, the technology is gaining traction among established as well as new players because of the platform being an open source for providing cost-efficient solution. Currently, more than two-third units of service robots are based on ROS platform that are expected to increase in future. ROS platform enables robot manufacturers to develop cost-effective robotic solutions in a stipulated time."
