2016 RBR50 Nominations Now Open


FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Dec. 15, 2015 -- The worldwide robotics market is more competitive than ever. New companies are popping up all the time. Which are the best in the world? Who should you keep on your business radar? The fifth annual RBR50 is searching the globe for the top 50 robotics companies to follow in 2016. Nominations are being accepted now through January 31, 2016.

The Robotics Business Review (RBR) editorial team selects the RBR50 from nominees around the world based on factors such as innovation, groundbreaking application, commercial success and commercial potential with an eye towards representing many different levels and facets of the robotics industry ecosystem. Big and small, private and public, these are the companies to watch as they push the future of robotics ahead!

The benefits of making it onto the RBR50 are many. Members are tracked throughout the year and RBR monitors how the marketplace views their progress, what analysts, partners or customers are reporting, and how their technology is seen by fellow roboticists and others in the high-tech and business communities. This creates a one-stop shop for reporting on their partnerships, product pipelines and business growth to keep readers informed on where each company stands in the market and why. "We organized this program to help our audience identify key companies developing robots, and highlight those who may be innovators flying under the radar," says Casey Nobile, Robotics Trends Media Manager.
