Market home robots is considered one of the most dynamic and promising. According to the Japan Association of robotics, industrial robots are used in the field of high-precision production, the growth of this market is rather limited. Household robots - a robotic vacuum cleaners, The Lawnmower Man, dishwashers and so on. D. - That is operating only one specific action.
At home also robots much more prospects for growth. Take into account the least social trends gain a sense of "loneliness" of people, the frequency of "urban depression" increase in the average age of marriage, we can safely predict a decent demand for new electronic toys that will be affordable, but quite functional, intelligent and "mental." That is, demand is not just a domestic assistant, but rather a partner - one that serves for fun, entertainment and reduce the symptoms of loneliness, etc.
The world market capacity of domestic robots is projected to be of the Japanese Association of Robotics in 2025 66 billion dollars. The market is divided among four major players - Japan, Korea, Europe and the United States - these countries are leading the demand for robotehnicheskuyu products.
Now a lot of different robots are specialized devices that are programmed for one or two operations, but, according to research by the International Federation of Robotics, a growing number of consumers are interested in it "smart" electronic robots with different functions (the ability to speak, move, adapt to the situation - to show the beginnings natural, human intelligence) than just a vacuum cleaner or floor cleaners.
After 7 years, most households will already have a home intelligent robot, or, at least, to plan such a purchase in the near future - such data IFR predicts.
