COVID-19 / Ukraine Crisis - Impact Analysis:

• Due to the global economic crisis caused by the Covid pandemic, enterprise and government spending on new automation projects and robotics investments declined significantly. Besides, the demand for robotics as a service depends largely upon new capital deployment. The lockdowns imposed by governments during the pandemic suspended many planned technology upgrades and automation initiatives, which negatively impacted the Robotics as a Service Market.

· The Russia-Ukraine conflict has caused supply chain disruptions that are negatively impacting the Robotics as a Service Market. Key components used in robotics manufacturing, such as semiconductor chips, have faced shortages and cost increases stemming from reduced exports of raw materials from Russia and Ukraine. As most companies prohibited business operations in Russia, the Robotics as a Service Market faces further challenges.

Key Takeaways:

· Highest Share of Asia Pacific Region

Geographically, in the global Robotics as a Service market share, Asia Pacific is analyzed to have highest share 35% in 2022. For instance, China’s robots installations grew up by 44% in 2021, showcasing massive growth potential as automation investments accelerate. According to International Federation of Robotics reports, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in Beijing, China, released the new 5-year

plan for the robotics industry which focus on promoting innovation - making China a global leader for robot technology and industrial advancement. These indicators spotlight APAC's position to lead the RaaS industry driven by ambitious automation goals in the region's major economies.

Professional Service Robots to Register the Fastest Growth

The professional service robot segment is expected to register the fastest growth in the RaaS market during the 2023-2030 forecast period with a CAGR of 15.9%. Growing adoption in construction, defence, healthcare, logistics, agriculture, and other industries will drive demand for professional robots that can improve productivity, quality, and safety. For example, the International Federation of Robotics said the total number of service robots sold for professional use hit 158,000 units in 2022, an increase of 48%. A shortage of skilled workers and a lack of staff applying for service jobs boosts demand. IFR identified almost 1,000 service robot suppliers worldwide delivering autonomous services.

· Material Handling Robots See Increased Adoption

The material handling application segment is poised for strong growth in the RaaS market during 2023-2030 with a CAGR of 16.1%. Several major players in robotics have introduced new handling robots or expanded deployments, indicating rising adoption. For example, In June 2022, Caja Robotics partnered with Fives Group, an integrator of smart automation solutions and advanced material handling. This partnership would aim to solve challenges of warehouse automation across the European market.

Overcoming Labor Shortages

RaaS adoption is accelerating as companies face ongoing talent and skill shortages. For instance, Cobalt Robotics offers robots to patrol buildings for a solution that the company says is 65 percent cheaper than having human security guards to guard premises. FedEx planned to deploy SameDay Robotics' autonomous delivery bots in 2021 to address driver shortages. RaaS alleviates hiring difficulties across various industries.

Advances in Cloud Robotics and AI Driving Adoption

The integration of cloud computing, 5G, AI, and machine learning is enhancing RaaS capabilities. For example, Amazon’s contribution is the AWS RoboMaker, and it includes machine learning, monitoring, and analytics services. Moreover, Google is developing the Google Cloud Robotics Platform that combines artificial intelligence (AI), the cloud and robotics to enable “an open ecosystem of automation solutions that use cloud-connected collaborative robots.” As the technology underpinning RaaS advances, it will unlock more complex and flexible automation, propelling market growth.

Several Challenges Hamper the Market Growth

The Robotics as a Service (RaaS) market faces restraints including high initial costs, integration difficulties with legacy systems, lack of skilled workers, security and privacy concerns, and evolving regulations. Additional roadblocks are lack of awareness among potential end-users about the long-term cost savings of RaaS versus outright robotics purchases, and hesitance in some industries to adopt advanced automation. Overcoming adoption hurdles through education, ensuring cybersecurity, developing skilled workforces, and clear regulatory frameworks will be critical to unlocking the full RaaS opportunity. Though challenges persist, RaaS presents a compelling path forward for automating processes without major capital expenditures.
