Key Market Trends

Healthcare Sector is Hold Major Share

  • Social robots are primarily designed to interact with people in a consistent human social psychology manner. They are particularly used in the field of healthcare due to their ability to engage people along with emotional and social dimensions, also the growing expenditure of the healthcare sector across the globe showcases the potential of adoption social robots.
  • Also, the rise of assistive technologies such as telecare, proactive services system, the household robots, among others that aid the aging population to live independently in their homes and, care facilities, has further elevated the scope of social robot deployment in health care sector owing to the emotional and personality traits offered and thereby serving patients as potential companions.
  • For instance, the PARO Therapeutic Robot ( by AIST, Japan) stimulates and reduces stress for patients with diseases such as Alzheimer's in healthcare facilities as it responds to users by its name by moving its head and cries for petting. Also, Mabu ( By Catalia Health Inc) serves as a wellness aid to elderly patients by reminding them to take walks, medication, and contact family members.
  • The development of social robotics research projects such as Human Interactive Robotics for Healthcare (HIRo) funded by Research Council of Norway's ICT Plus initiative focuses on developing humanoid robotic platforms to assist both health professionals and patients in municipality's home help services and hospital by performing contextual interactive tasks such as helping healthcare professionals in every patient task and accompanying new patients, visitors among others are expected to drive the growth of the market.

North America to Witness Fastest Market Growth

  • North America is expected to witness the fastest market growth owing to factors such as the region is one of the pioneers in the adoption of robots across industries and advanced technologies such as AI, NLP, among others, also the rise of chronic diseases, aging population.
  • For instance, the healthcare settings in countries such as Canada is under tremendous strain owing to the rapidly growing demand from the public, demanding healthcare organizations to keep pace with the changing societal needs of the aging population and growing number of people with chronic conditions such as dementia that require complex medical and mental health need.
  • Given the complexity of dementia care, the adoption and integration of technology such as social robots as they serve multiple functions, including cognitive training, affective therapy, social facilitator, companionship among others, stands to be an important opportunity for the growth of the market.

  • Also, global pandemic COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of workplace automation. Organizations in the region are leveraging robots and AI to keep business running during the social distancing period to reduce the health risk to human workers. Further, the post-coronavirus era is expected to drive the social acceptance of robots across various industries, thereby leveraging market growth.
  • For instance, Brain Corp, a robotic software development company based in San Diego, reported that its customers are employing robots around 13% more as compared to the months before the pandemic. A similar trend is expected to be followed by the demand for social robots in the region.
