Sales Analysis of Modular Robot (2018-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2023-2033)

Modular robots incorporate functionality like actuators, processors, sensors, energy, etc. into small, reusable connectors called modules that may be reconfigured in various ways to produce various morphologies.

Modular robots accelerate the construction of new robot configurations compared to conventional methods, taking only minutes instead of hours. When reconfiguring these types of robots, wiring may be removed because connectors can carry power and control signals.

Over the past few decades, various modular robot designs have been created. Self-reconfiguring modular robots are a particular subclass of robots that may even automatically reconfigure without external assistance. Such advantages offered by modular robotics technology provide a plethora of opportunities for the growth of the market.

  • Short Term (2023 Q1 to 2026): Increasing end use application in different industry will positively impact modular robot market growth.
  • Medium Term (2026- 2029): North America, East Asia and Europe is anticipated to witness comparatively high modular robot demand due to increasing demand for surveillance.
  • Long Term (2029- 2033): Adopting new advanced technology can open new opportunities for modular robot market.

From 2018 to 2022, the global market for modular robot registered a CAGR of 5.2%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the market will exhibit growth at 10.8% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

What’s Driving High Demand for Modular Robot across Regions?

“Technological Advancements in the Robotic Technology to Support Market Growth”

Evolving robot morphology to better adapt to tasks is a long-sought solution. Automatically designing robots using artificial evolution techniques can help speed up the robot development process and potentially create new solutions.

In some cases, evolutionary algorithms have demonstrated the ability to find solutions counterintuitive or unrecognized to human designers. A special type of modular robot, the self-reconfiguring modular robot, can even reconfigure automatically without external intervention.

The self-reconfiguring process is a process in which the sequence of actions for a self-reconfiguring module to change from one form to another is algorithmically generated with all modules remaining connected to the same body. Such technological advantages will take the market to new heights.

“Increasing adaptability of modular structure to compliment market growth”

Researchers envision robots that can go where humans can't, such as in search and rescue operations in the rubble after natural disasters such as earthquakes. Modular robots may thrive in these situations by orienting themselves to fit in much smaller spaces than traditional robots.

Modularity is a vital concept in designing and engineering in order to cope with certain complex systems. In the industrial environment there lie many complex tasks for the robots as well as the system of the robot itself also maybe itself complicated. The modularity of robots is gaining popularity due to their unique techniques, dynamics, and kinematics.

Other uses for modular robots can be found in situations where weight is a major concern and where multi-purpose functionality contributes significantly. In space, there are many other uses for modular robots as they are useful in virtually any situation, not just niche applications like disaster relief and space exploration.

What Do Modular Robot Manufacturers Need to Watch Out?

Requirement for more advanced devices may limit market growth

The modules must become stronger and more compact while also getting smaller in order for them to move the weight of a larger assembly. Additionally, they will need to become more adept at communicating with one another and support an increasing number of modules.

Modular robots must solve problems before even knowing what form they will take, making software for these swarms at least as challenging to develop as the hardware design. Such problems can be addressed so that it does not limit the growth of the market.
