Humanoid robot market to double by 2023, industrial robotics to hit $72B

Alison DeNisco Rayome for TechRepublic:  The humanoid robot market will grow from $320.3 million this year to $3.9 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 52%, according to research from ReportsnReports. This growth will be driven by the introduction of more advanced features in this robots, as well as a number of societal factors, the report found.

The medical and logistics sectors are also interested in integrating more artificial intelligence (AI) via robots, as do industries that run autonomous rescue operations, according to the report.

Leading manufacturers in the humanoid robot market include Soft Bank, Robotis, Kawada Robotics, Honda Motor, Ubtech Robotica, and NASA.

In 2016, North and South America held the largest share of the humanoid robot market. "The Americas is the early adopter of humanoids for all the major applications, such as public relations, personal assistance and caregiving, and education and entertainment, resulting in the maximum demand for robots from this region," according to the report.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
