Internet of things (IoT) is the science of connecting standalone devices initiating data transfer between them subject to networking rules comprising Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and implementing the best delivery of IP packets between devices. Connectivity between passive devices is IoT in operation with monitoring and optimizing processes via onboard sensors adhering to protocol-governed communication but having smart devices transmit determining the best course of action asks for more intelligence-sharing and constitutes Internet of Robotic things market.
IPv4 has a shortfall of addresses by accommodating up to 4 billion addresses and so cannot fulfill the enormous connectivity. This is mitigated by IPv6 that is in evolutionary stages and has an address space far exceeding IPv4 and sorts out any limitations in address space. This proves to be a limiting factor in Internet of Robotic Things market. Internet of Robotic things market is mainly enhanced by the proliferation of e-commerce industry and the use of robots in various industries for efficient handling of equipment along delivery chain on shop floor.
Segmentation of Internet of Robotic Things Market by smart robot component comprises sensors, actuators, power source, control systems, and others (electrical, electronic and others). By software, the market is differentiated as real time streaming analytics, security solutions, data management, remote monitoring systems, and network bandwidth management. By platform, the market ends in introduction, device management platform, application management platform, and network management platform.
By service, the market is shared between professional services and managed services. Professional services further augments to deployment and integration, support, and maintenance and consulting services. By Application, the market leans into collaborative industrial robots, service sector, and professional services. Collaborative industrial robots further augments to automotive, electronics, food and beverages, and others.
By services sector, it gives out personal services and professional services. Personal services are further sub-divided into domestic, entertainment, and others. Entertainment goes down as smart toys and robotic pets. Professional services constitute defense services, field, medical, telepresence, logistics, underwater, inspection and maintenance, and others. Defense and security comprises demining, bomb, and firefighting. Field comprises agriculture and forestry and milking robots. Logistics includes factory logistics and service logistics. Telepresence comprises business, healthcare and personal. Inspection and maintenance sets apart factory facilities, tanks, tubes, pipes and sewers, ships and turbines and others (infrastructure and construction).
By geography, the IoRT market is graciously subdivided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, MEA, and Latin America. IoRT market by smart robotic equipment holds the major market share due to the immediate requirement of actuators, sensors power systems, and control systems by importance given to sensing characteristic in various applications such as aerospace, geo-protection, military, medical and sports. The forecast for market by sensors is the highest from 2014 to 2025.
Programming is an essential feature of Software that is an intrinsic feature of robots and needs to be integrated for co-coordinating movements. North America is a mature economy and constitutes a dominant share in the IoRT market. Canada is projected to increase the market share owing to massive adoption of smart robots in the forecast period.
As per news article dated Aug 2016, the most predictions say that IoT is passé and it is time to ring in IoRT which is set to grow exponentially. The invention of smart factories and sophistications by inclusion of sensors in equipments does impart even the minute changes triggered in the value chain; thanks to industrial automation that has brought robotics at the forefront.Key industry players in the market include ABB Ltd, KUKA AG, iRobot Corp, Amazon.com, Google, Inc., and FANUC Corp.
