Four recent research reports covering service robots, vision guided robotics, material handling robots, and robot component speed reducers, all predict steady growth, particularly in China.

QY Research offers their $2,200 report on the Global and China Vision Guided Robotics Industry and predicts steady growth for the industry segment through 2019.

Another $1,500 report by Research in China covers the manufacture of speed reducers in China, a core component of the motors and gears that are part of all robots. The report predicts a doubling of output from 244,000 in 2013 to 461,000 in 2016. Because the focus is China, many new vendors come to light in the report.

Wintergreen Research has a $7,800 report on the logistics and material handling robotics marketplace. The report predicts the market segment will reach $31.3 billion by 2020 and includes companies that provide palletizing and de-palletizing robots, material handling robots, life science and pharmaceutical logistics robots, food and beverage logistics robots, semiconductor and electronics handling robots to name just a few.

TechNavio’s Global Service Robot Market 2014-2018, a $3,000 report, predicts a 16.5% CAGR over the period 2014-2018. The report covers professional robots and personal/domestic robots and include aerial, underwater and mobile robots of all types.
