The research study by Technavio on the global mobile robot charging station market for 2017-2021 provides a detailed industry analysis based on the type (stand-alone charger and multi-robot charger), application (industrial and commercial sector), and geography (the Americas, EMEA, and APAC).
|Mobile robot charging station, or docking station, comprises transmitter and receiver, which helps the charging station and the autonomous mobile robots to communicate. The demand for autonomous mobile robots has increased due to the extended preference of factory automation and Industry 4.0, increasing the growth of the global mobile robot charging station market.|

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global mobile robot charging station market:
- Reduced cost price of electronic components
- Factory automation
- Solar-energy fueled charging stations
Reduced cost price of electronic components
The extent of microelectronics, nanotechnology, and wireless communication technology has led to the rise in the use of autonomous mobile robots in multiple industrial and commercial applications. These robots are working in and around the shop floors and are enabled with autonomous charging facility.
“The significant fall in the price of electronic components, such as the infrared sensors and cameras has elevated the growth of the global mobile robot charging station market. The availability of affordable raw material has enabled the development in the field of robotics, and thereby charging stations,” says Sushmit Chakraborty, a lead analyst at Technavio for robotics research.
The automation of factory floors greatly improves the quality of work output, which has led to the automation of a plethora of end-user industries such as automotive manufacturing, food and beverages, and chemical manufacturing. Countries such as China, India, Japan, Singapore, Germany, and the UK, which are dependent on the manufacturing industry, are increasingly adopting robots in their factories. Most fully automated factories are dependent on autonomous mobile robots for various applications such as commercial equipment cleaning, transportation and material handling, garbage disposal, and inventory management. Mobile robot charging stations are employed in these industries to power the robots.
Solar-energy fueled charging stations
“Autonomous mobile robots are used in defense and police applications for outdoor operations such as border patrol, security, forest and agriculture, and material transfer. Such operations need robots and charging stations that can provide power supply whenever required,” says Sushmit.
The mobile robot chargers or docking stations used for outdoor operations cannot be assisted with wall mounted power boards connected to traditional grid power sources. Therefore, solar energy fueled charging stations are developed to enable charging these remote docking stations. These stations are equipped with a solar panel that helps to convert solar energy into a direct current, which can be supplied to robots.
