Growing acceptance of personal service robots: a major market driver
The acceptance of automated products as companions in daily tasks has grown significantly due to the increasing education levels over the last decade. The advent of advanced technologies such as AI, IoT, and others has increased the capability of the products to adapt to the environment and provide insights accordingly, which will increase the demand for these products.
Smart city initiatives have further encouraged the acceptance of automated solutions. Smart city residents are inclined toward automating all the aspects of their homes, from electricity use to laundry. The high adoption of robotic vacuum cleaners in the last decade showcases the inclination toward domestic assistance-providing robotic solutions. A similar acceptance is anticipated for the laundry folding robots during the forecast period.
