MarketsandMarkets expects the Robot Operating System (ROS) Market is projected to grow from USD 312 million in 2019 to USD 467 million by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 8.4% during the forecast period. The adoption rate of ROS is expected to grow, owing to the rising Research and Development (R&D) funds for industry automation, increasing implementation of collaborative modular robots, growing demand for Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) model, and the rising adoption of low-cost industrial robots.
Collaborative robots segment to hold the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The safety features, as well as the benefits over other robots to perform certain light-duty tasks, is driving the adoption of collaborative robots (Cobot’s) across the ROS market. Cobot’s can be integrated with various sensors, vision systems, and passive compliance. It also integrates with overcurrent detection features, which detect any imminent collision with humans and take appropriate action to stop their movement, or deactivate the arm, or move the joint in the opposite direction, to avoid injury.
