Global telepresence robot market was valued at 149 Million US$ in 2018 and is projected to reach 418 Million US$ by 2024
A telepresence robot is a remote-controlled, wheeled device that has wireless internet connectivity. Typically, the robot uses a tablet to provide video and audio capabilities. It is first mentioned by Anybots. Telepresence robots are commonly used to stand in for tour guides, night watchmen, factory inspectors and healthcare consultants. In a distance education class, a telepresence robot can move around the room and interact face-to-face with individual students, just as an on-premises instructor might. In business, a telepresence robot can be used to help an employee whose disability or location prevents him from traveling still have a physical presence in the office.
Global telepresence robot market
was valued at 149 Million US$ in 2018 and is projected to reach 418 Million US$ by 2024, at a CAGR of 18.79% during the forecast period.
The telepresence robot industry is surging forward rapidly, mainly on account of increasing demand for teleconferences, remote management of workforces, proliferating demand for consumer and personal telepresence robots in healthcare, education, retail and hospitality sectors, among others. As next generation robotic devices, systems, and instruments are introduced to manage remote presence. The robotic platform will be extended to include grippers and cameras of all types, sensors and sophisticated navigation software.
The quality of remote communication is uplifted by the robotic platform approach to connecting people located in different places. The visualization provided by the telepresence robot is not reproducible by the smartphone and large telepresence systems are not mobile. So ultimately all people will want access to telepresence robots in order to move around and see for themselves what is going on in another place.
Manufacturing and engineering telepresence robot uses are expected to proliferate. Monitoring and telepresence are being combined to achieve remote repairs that provide better customer services at lower cost. Manufacturing and engineering resources for companies frequently are in different places.
Key players in global telepresence robot market include: Anybots, Double Robotics, Revolve Robotics, Mantarobot, Suitable Technologies, Vgo Communications, Telepresence Robotics Corporation, Inbot Technology, Cisco Systems, I2U2Robot etc.
